i don't understand:

why looking at other people's lives and belongings is so enthralling. sometimes i feel like a borderline stalker.

came across these while looking through iphoto on bailey's old laptop. both from summer 2006.

can't stop, won't stop:

last night i got back from a week in california; this afternoon i leave for a long weekend in pleasure island with my parents. i feel like summer is almost over.

one good thing about spending the summer at home with my parents is that i've been able to practice my cooking -- and teach them how to make healthy dinners without meat. i've made curried vegetables, gazpacho soup, fresh pastas with homemade pesto, etc. etc. also, mom and i have been combining our efforts lately: last tuesday it was tortilla espaƱola, fresh tomato salad with vinaigrette, and mojitos; tonight it was grilled fish tacos with pico de gallo, roasted corn, red cabbage, creamy guacamole, and watermelon margaritas (recipes from the current issue of domino magazine). delicious.

tomorrow i leave for san francisco at 6 a.m. i'm excited about seeing and doing a number of things while i'm there...
