I need an excuse to wear eye makeup like this

I need an excuse to wear eye makeup like this

Today I slept in, lazed around as I watched the Netherlands beat Brazil in the World Cup, ran a 5k and had my third mile be the fastest one, ate a delicious dinner of steak & corn on the cob and have stayed within my calorie count for the day, and am now watching Drew Storen pitch in the Nats vs. Phillies game that is actually airing on real TV for me as I play fetch with my cat.  

So basically today was a pretty good day & I just wanted to document it because I very rarely mentioned good days on here & mostly just complain about the awful ones. Huzzah!

Dropped my kindle in the tub in the middle of a murder mystery. WORST. NIGHT. OF. MY. LIFE.

First world problems I know I know.

BUT FOR REALZ?!

THE SILKWORM?
If so, that’s terrible. I was late to a 4th of July cookout so I could finish reading Cuckoo’s Calling. WORTH IT.

“We don’t get to stay in moments and that should not be news to you. We are both familiar with the concept of time, the awful math of it, how our history always gets larger, less understandable, overweight, overworked, over and over, and memories get misfiled and complicate feelings for no good reason and some people seem more able to deal with this, to keep their histories clean and well ordered but I still don’t understand why we came unstuck from those moments we wanted to stay and why the moments we wanted to forget still haunt us.” —Catherine Lacey, Nobody Is Ever Missing

I might as well have eaten like this over the weekend, based on how gross I felt yesterday
