I lost my thing

Dear Chelso,

We watched the Chopped series with Ted Allen and his rugged face stubble – emphasizing the outdoorsness of a grill-off. It was everything you talked it up and more and I needed you to know this.

Right before I started to write this I decided to make my own cold brew coffee with this ground espresso that is too finely ground to actually use for espresso. I asked for it ground very fine and they practically made me a clay powder that clogs up my espresso tools every time I try to use it. I’ve been truly stumped by this stuff. However – last night as I was watching a Hulu advertisement with a cute old man talking highly about Starbucks employee life – I came up with the idea to stick the powder in a couple of those tea bags we bought at Diaso and leave it in some water overnight. Time will only tell if this is a success or not. I’m assuming it might be such a fine powder that it finds its way through the tea bags and ends up all at the bottom of the pitcher. This is what I find invigorating these days.

Chelso I loved your recommendation list and I hope I get to see your dress at some point! I personally really enjoy our reviews of things and I also enjoy having opinions about random stuff.

I recently decided that I wanted to go through my clothes and toss out a bunch of stuff I don’t wear to prep for the future move. I dumped all of my clothes in the middle of the floor and maybe worked my way through a fifth of my belongings. The remainder has been in the middle of my floor for about two weeks now. It’s definitely not the only thing hazardously left in my sick-path. It’s that moment where you wake up from your sick haze and realize how much of a mess you’ve become. I recall a similar feeling after being done with finals in college – just emerging from the chaos and noticing that somehow my life now resembles something of a tornado wreckage. I’m hopeful to get back on track this weekend. Much like my makeshift coldbrew, only time will tell.

I promise next time I’ll have something more exciting to say – but in the meantime this is all I have. You are lovely Chelso and I look forward to your next post!


About a Mow


This Mow is arguably odd. My name is Maryanne enjoy weird things in life and I occasionally rant about something that I will randomly feel very strongly about. But overall, I enjoy centering on the amusing aspects of life and social interaction. When there’s the occasion where I am not sure how I feel about a social interaction, I tend to seek the other Mow for insight. She is a wise Mow.

Ten things I cannot live without: 

1. Water. I think it’s important to have around. My body gets very upset when it’s dehydrated.

2. My cat. She is fat and when I am not near her I long for her loud and obnoxious company.

3. Other Mow. Invaluable friend, I cannot imagine a life without her influence.

4. Hotdogs.

5. Spontaneous adventures. There’s nothing more thrilling.

6. Inside jokes.

7. A good story.

8. Indoor plumbing.

9. Cappuccino foam.

10. I’ll be sentimental and say family. I love my weird weird family.

I am very excited to be a part of this blog with my fellow Mow and I look forward to the posts we will create! I will be planning to take on posting Mondays, and will commit to any punishment that comes my way if I fail to do this. May the blogging begin!
