    I am re-discovering early Tori Amos at the moment and channeling my 14-year-old self.

    Looking for shit on Craigslist, reading celebrity gossip blogs, and making music.

    1. Shirley Temples (aka the kiddy cocktail) - used to order them and think I was the most sophisticated 6 year old in the world.
    2. Kraft mac n' cheese - a staple in my house. I remember eating it slow and telling my friend I was "savoring" it.

    Brown + mustardy yellow or teal + black


    15. At what age should someone have called the fashion police on you?

    4th and 5th grade were - hands down - the most shameful years for yours truly, fashion-wise. On our 5th grade class field trip to Six Flags I wore a baseball hat that said "411 info!" on it, a baby tee, BOXER SHORTS, and sneakers with lace socks. Accessorized with a Guatemalan fabric sack.

    UGHHH more like "what sweet treat DON'T I enjoy"?? Partial to donuts and pie at the moment, especially PUMPKIN PIE (tis the season).

    Usually stash them in the change portion of my wallet so I can revel in making exact change or unload them all on an unsuspecting vendor.

    Vanilla extract and coffee. Recently I've grown to love and appreciate a "sensible shoe" (no more Target and Payless fast fashion).

    Procrastinating and/or wasting time, eating too many sweets, and picking my GD face.

    Will Arnett and Amy Poehler (and I'd want Meryl Streep to be my grandma)
