I’m super lucky to have had a chance to see the 18th ave. street fair in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. And the best part of the street fair? Sharing deep fried oreos with people you like. And then complaining for an hour about the abundance of sugar that my face is covered in.

Seeing Arthur Darvill
A few weeks ago, I went to go see Arthur Darvill’s goodbye performance with the cast members of Once at the Highline Ballroom. It was an interesting evening to say the least. The music was really cool, and I was really excited to see him perform (Rory is my favorite character from Doctor Who).
The songs were split between original songs and well-known songs. Most of them were awesome, and the cast was quite talented. I tried really hard to bail early several times during the night, but Omar made me stay and I was really grateful that I did. I think everyone needs someone in their life that makes them stay.
To end, here’s a super short clip of Arthur Darvill singing a song:
Dog in the Wall
The only thing worse than coming into work on your day off is walking out of your building to this. I got to work with pants wet all the way up to my knees. I don’t even. Here, while you look at the picture, listen to this.
I came home the other night only to find a doorknob on my welcome mat. It was so weird because none of the neighbors were missing a knob. I definitely stared at it for a long while before I decided to leave it for the doorknob fairy. Sure enough, when I left for work the next day, it was gone. There was no money left under my mat though. Only the toothfairy is loaded, apparently.
Color Run 2013!
I did the Color Run again! This time my teammate was Nick (our team was called the Awesome Faces). It was pretty fantastic. It was his first 5k. I bothered him the entire time to keep running and he almost beat me with all the colors. We got sprayed with some dye during the run as well. As always, I had a great time remembering how long 3.2 miles actually is, and sharing it with my very best friend. Even if he now hates me for torturing him. In any case–here’s us happy and chipper before the race, and the damage done at the end.
It took so long to get cleaned up after–everything was red and orange. Even my snot and my feet. I don’t even understand how that works. Can’t wait for the next one!
