If You Were Here....

If you were here, you'd hear the constant hum of the washer and dryer as I'm pretty much perpetually doing laundry, and moreover, today is "wash the bedding" day.

You'd no doubt hear some poppy rockin' music like OkGo, The Bend Sinister, the Dandy Warhols, and The Fratellis, since that's what I'm in the mood for.

You'd have your choice of hot or iced coffee with or without "fudge brownie" creamer or skim milk. We could also walk to the nearby Books-A-Million and enjoy the offerings of their coffee shop.

The cats - Isabelle and Hope - may just drive you insane from their bursting into and out of paper grocery bags and hopping in and out of one (four! - crazy!) boxes on our living room floor put there expressly for their entertainment.  (In our defense, 2 of those are shoe boxes from my birthday and the only reason they stay is because Hope likes to use them for scratching pads.)

If you were here, I'd have put on actual clothes in honor of having a guest, instead of still being in my tank top and pajama bottoms.

We'd sit on the couch and chat while the light breeze hits us from the open balcony doors of our apartment and Shawn would sit at the table playing his baseball board game and occasionally contributing to the conversation.

You would see a collision of action figures and interests displayed on our shelves: Batman and Baseball (especially Tigers), Star Wars, Harry Potter and of course - lots of books.  We'd have lots to talk about and if you didn't want to talk, we could just sit and play some video games or watch a movie.  We're easy.


  1. This sounds really awesome! I am also almost always in pajama type clothes unless people come over or I go somewhere. Also I really want some of that fudge brownie creamer and to find out what Books a Million is :)

  2. Sweet concept :) My husband and I are enjoying our non-roommate time by being inappropriately dressed in the living room. These moments are few :)

    Also: thanks for introducing me to a new blog.

  3. I loved this post! Do more! :) It was lovely I felt like I was in your home with you. I love cats and would probably be on the floor playing with them, as I type I am being smooched to death by our cat. And I love Star Wars and Harry Potter so we would have loads to talk about. Lovely post xx

  4. Fudge brownie creamer! That sounds heavenly.

  5. We could totally hang out together... You have excellent taste in music, you like coffee, baseball and Star Wars and you're easy going. In fact, you wouldn't even have to change out of your pajamas because I'd probably show up wearing my Homer Simpson pajama bottoms with mismatched over sized t-shirt of the day (okay-week). :)

    This is a pretty cool idea!
