Things that make me sad:
Women who wear skinny jeans, fake tans and stripper heels well into their 40s. Or ever.
Ed Hardy apparel. I mean, come on people, really? With the graffiti and the bling?
Leaving Arnie and Red Dog for 10 days. Especially Arnie. Red appears to understand what's happening. Knows that my leaving him isn't permanent. Arnie doesn't seem to get it, and I think he thinks I've left him forever. Here's a photo illustrates their differing grasps on what's happening in the world.
Things that give me joy:
Talking to Nicole and Lizzie who are caring for Arnie like he's one of their own.
Spending the 4th with Brad and my brother, who's become a climber!
Being on VACATION for the next 10 days!
Going to Santa Cruz.
Going to the ocean.
Going to the Hulk.
Going to Tuolumne.
I'm so excited.
