hopes and hops...

last night, i was on a hunt for art. and not just any art. something that would convey some or most of the following thoughts...

i like you. you're one of the nicest friends i've never met. and if you ever needed a favor, all you'd have to do is ask me. of course, there's always a chance i'd refuse. especially if you asked for monies. or if you invited me for a potluck dinner. i hate potluck. hate the name. hate the concept. hate it all. hate hate hate. and i rarely hate. but, potluck? i hate you. where was i? potluck drives me insane. but you? you fill me with insane amounts of inspiration. daily. i like you. it bears repeating. i like you very much. and i hope you have an amazing birthday. a girl like you deserves nothing less.

but lill was sitting next to me while i hunted. and this image popped up on my monitor. and she smiled as only she can smile. like i should be paying a power bill for the sparks in her eyes.




oh, that's a great one! stop hopping. funny, right?

she must've giggled to herself for a good thirty seconds. long enough for me to jot a quick note for myself.

get. reading. tutor. for. lill.

happy birthday, kelly. i've a huge crush on you. i hope your day is nothing short of perfection. full of surprises that make you smile. and. keep hopping. ugh.

photo from fat owls' flickr stream. and you should visit kelly at design crush at least three times a day. she posts cool stuff all the time.

Yay for Kelly! She is one of the nicest bloggers around and this is such a fitting post for her!

i think i like the idea of "stop hopping" much more so than "stop hoping." i'd nix the tutor.

I do prefer stop hopping to stop hoping though.

There's always hope.

Off to visit Kelly, amazing shot.
