coffee & craig at blue sky bakery

yesterday morning craig stopped through town and we discussed doctoral programs at one of my most favorite neighborhood bakeries, blue sky. yes, this craig and this craig {and the craig that once held my hair back as i puked all over philadelphia during an iconic freshman year weekender} discussed doctoral programs

and in the way that i imagine a parent sometimes struggles in watching a kid grow up, i was. not. ready for this. so i buried myself in my berry bran muffin and i nursed my hot coffee as if therein hid some warmth from our tanglewood summer of 2007. in that moment i could have hit the pause button on the remote control of life, but instead i just invited him over and we watched beyoncĂ©'s halftime show on youtube. 

professor craig.
doctor craig.
craig, d.m.a.

ok that actually sounds really cool.


the problem with being in love with my new apartment is that there are just too many fantastic looking restaurants that i can't be arsed to try on account of why shouldn't i stay in my sunny kitchen all day and cook all of the things that pass through my stream of consciousness? corn muffins with bacon and apples for donny and mo? ok. almond chocolate meringues? yes. brunch for craig? oh yes absolutely omg yes craig was in town and we ate eggs and split a pumpkin whoopie pie.

and then yesterday a thought arouse that was something along the lines of: i am going to be single for as long as i live in this apartment because with the amount that i love this place, how can i possibly love another thing, such as a human being?

perhaps this is what we call "taking this too far."


shameless loves, by craig

{craig's list. get it? i thought it was funny...}
things that craig loves
{but really probably shouldn't}

1. good conversations. dialogue is the one of the most neglected art forms i can think of. when people put their electronics away and focus on the person in front of them, magical things can happen. 

2. nerds. 
i really enjoy science fiction. 
my dream demise is to be shot by an alien (because no one's done it before).

3. snow. is there anything more beautiful?

4. VEGETARIANISM. the more i do it, the more i love it, and i don't care how much it bothers people (because apparently it does, i've found). it is SUPER good for you, and actually really fun. 

5. uma thurman and everything about her. her finesse as an actress; her beautiful face; her BAD-ASS-NESS. 

6. people watching. 
i'm a creep. 
i even talk to myself about the people i'm watching. wow. by the way, airports make the best watching.

7. money. it isn't happiness, but why do i feel so good when i've got some in the bank?... just sayin'

8. molly's blog. i check every day. 

9. and so much more!

thanks, craig! i think that shirt deserves a spot on the list too...
and a very happy no shame (january) to you!
