lilacs on my way to work. i love them.
a long walk
we saw the twilight sad at chelsea. i was totally mesmerised by the lead singer. i couldn't take my eyes away from him. i've never seen someone that close perform with such passion, and well, as if they were almost possessed or in a trance.

i've had quite a traumatic (for me) dentist experience this week. i have quite an irrational fear of the dentist (i'm not alone i know) but i got myself worked up into quite a mess over a root canal and procedure to remove part of the root and infection. i now have a swollen and bruised cheek *sad face*

but i'm excited because tonight we fly home to attend our friends wedding on saturday! it is going to be beautiful and so much fun. lets just hope i don't still look like a hamster by then!


  1. I should go to the Chelsea....I heard they have great concerts there!

  3. Oh, you poor thing. I hope your sore heals quickly and the swelling goes down before the wedding. I hear that being with friends and loved ones heals all wounds :-) As a last resort, you could always rub some topfen on it!!

    1. thanks lindsay! luckily no topfen was required!
