April Foolish

Seeing this picture on 'It's Mary Ruffle' today actually made me laugh out loud.

This flower is a Grape Hyacinth. My mom planted hundreds of these bulbs one winter and when they finally came up in the spring, I was pretty excited. So excited that I picked every single one of them in our front yard, then proceeded to rip off all the little flowers and throw them around the yard like confetti. I was the best behaved child in the world.

I must learn to love the fool in me; the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries”

I am staying up all night because I have way too much to do with school/honors thesis/mr. university and instead of being productive I'm blogging and watching Planet Earth. What an awesome use of my time, right?


  1. ha ha - I love this story about you when you were little! I can definitely see you doing that...

    And if it's making you happy while you're doing it (which is the very point of procrastinating) then yes, blogging and Planet Earth are both an EXCELLENT use of time, my dear.

  2. blogging + planet earth. sounds like a good time to me!

  3. this is my favorite post youve ever written.

  4. you know what else would be a good use of your time...CALLING ME BACK!!!

    and I really liked this too :)
