The Squishy Monster, April 30, 2012
I’ve had the sad bug come and latch onto me lately. He’s a vicious monster (again, not of the Squishy variety) and thought it would do some good to just “get away.” I use “get away” loosely because surrounding my city are charming little towns, tucked into obscurity, that when given a second glance, are great places to roam around and get lost in (great considering they’re all but only an hour or so away).
The town I actually lived in for a year during my first year in college–seemed like a lot had changed (or maybe nothing has)
Slurpin’ my bottle soda (the only way I’ll drink ’em) at a quirky, old fashioned drug store, complete with a resident soda jerk, and all.
Authentic, old school decor.
My medicine cabinet consists of a crusty pepto bottle and expired aspirin…I should really get on that, huh?
Dinner at the bar I used to work at in college. They still have yummy reubens. It’s the same thing I got the first time me and my roomie came here. Ah-memories
A share-bag of strawberry cotton candy at my first drive-in movie. Share-size for a reason. My tummy kind of hated me later.
I spent my Sunday in Old Salem. My bestie put me in a car, didn’t tell me where we were going and whisked me away to the past. I guess it was just that kinda weekend. This enchanting little town was established in 1766 (and people actually live here).
Somebody has my kinda humor. I love this!
The water here is delicious!
The lady who guards the Reynolda Gardens. Doomed to an eternity of neck and back pain.
I can’t wait to have my own little garden!! There is where I shall set booby traps for anything that attempts to spread sadness
Mm yum, now all I need is a heaping helping of Thai chicken!
I don’t know about you, but this is precisely the beginning of many of my childhood fantasies
