Looks like @fete_ish is getting in the spirit of #diadelosmuertos #dayofthedead #bishoparts #oakcliff

Hello Bishop Arts District,
Yesterday we brunched at Oddfellows, then walked up to Dude, Sweet Chocolate for some chocolate salami (duuuuude), popped into We Are 1976 to say hi to the shop owner/friend, and discovered the MAGIC that is Wild Detectives. Gorgeous coffee shop/bookstore for writers and book lovers? Be still my heart.
My ongoing homesickness for Oak Cliff (and Lakewood, Deep Ellum) was confirmed this weekend.

Hello Bishop Arts District,

Yesterday we brunched at Oddfellows, then walked up to Dude, Sweet Chocolate for some chocolate salami (duuuuude), popped into We Are 1976 to say hi to the shop owner/friend, and discovered the MAGIC that is Wild Detectives. Gorgeous coffee shop/bookstore for writers and book lovers? Be still my heart.

My ongoing homesickness for Oak Cliff (and Lakewood, Deep Ellum) was confirmed this weekend.

Dating worked so much better with an open mind. In my 20s, I dismissed men for such minutiae: listening to the wrong music, wearing the wrong socks. I got mad at a guy in college because he liked porn. I mean, what planet was I living on? But I was young, and I was righteous, and I couldn’t forgive any man for failing to be John Cusack (who probably also likes porn). I didn’t date much.

Hello Dallas dating,

This article could’ve been written by me but with the title - Single In Dallas: My Worst Nightmare.

Hello Home By Hovercraft “Rocket”

If I die in the summer I want to buried

If I die in the winter I want to be burned

If I die in your arms 

I want to be put inside a rocket

and shot up to the sun

I am officially in love with this Dallas band. Not only are they great musicians, fantastic human beings, they also have a step dancer as part of the band. Oh, AND they’re making a musical, because they are that awesome.
