Roundabouts &Traffic Observations

People, please use your turn signal when exiting the roundabout. This will save you and other people. Also, a yield sign is not equivalent to a stop sign.

On another note, I think we should be required to retake a driving test every couple of years. Less emphasis on knowing how to parallel park like when you were 16 but focus on the important things like use of indicators, making a complete stop at four-way stop signs and not texting while driving.

Directions with Casey

  • We were en route to a concert with some friends. Casey was driving and I was navigating with Google Maps per usual.
  • Casey: So my next turn is a left, baby?
  • Me: Right.
  • Casey: Right I go left?
  • Me: No, you need to make a right. I'll tell you when you're correct.
  • [laughter ensues from the back seat]
  • Ashley: Yeah, Casey. She'll TELL you when you're correct!


We’ve got all the Fresh Air you need.

Musings: Revolving Doors

Do you ever feel as if revolving doors are the adult version of double dutch? You know you can do it, but there’s an inordinate amount of anxiety about when to jump in and how fast to go. 

Ramblings of Casey

  • Anne: [looking at Instagram] Oh look at this. Truffle-Parmesan popcorn with black pepper, sea salt and chives.
  • Casey: FUCK OFF!
  • It's important to note that Casey can't eat popcorn let alone real food.

Dinner date with @rcmay. Fillets with sautéed green beans and mushrooms. My mom @pstandley taught me right. #nofilter #beeffordinner

Royal Canoe opened for Bombay Bicycle Club last night, and I’m glad because I’m really digging their eclectic tunes.

Sara B. Retweeting Us

  • My friend Ashley and I were discussing our newly purchased tickets for Sara Bareilles' #NoPants tour and our plot to tweet her and become BFFLs. The background story that our first true outing as friends was to Sara B.'s #Brave Tour in 2013, so this will be our first #friendaversary.
  • Ashley: OMG what would you do if she retweeted you?
  • Me: Die. {pause to reconsider} Yeah, I would totally die.
  • Ashley: Me too.
