Spring Forward… You have cost me one whole episode of Teen Mom 2. Thanks? I guess? I mean, I’d be mad if I were doing something valuable with my time. Like baking scones. If you’d taken these away, we might have to have capital-w Words. Maybe all-caps WORDS.
Ah, spring forward. The controversy! Morning people and night people: it takes all kinds. We can’t all do everything at once; that’d be madness. Like baking. Some of us get down with night baking, some of us wake up naturally with the sun, drink some green juice/chamomile tea/virgin blood (I don’t know how you people operate, forgive me) and bake up breakfast goods at an appropriate time.
Either way, we will have scones. Tender, slightly sweet, dotted with heavenly banana chunks and toasty hazelnuts.

Without further ado, some things that make me happy lately, in addition to these light, tender, tart fruit-studded beauties:
-Trying to dress more like Bret McKenzie. Namely, those animal sweatshirts… Amazing.
-Remembering to add the fabric softener like a real adult. This means paying attention to the washing machine and what the last rinse cycle sounds like, which seems like Unnecessary Waste of Brain, but it’s worth it.
-Concert season officially started, last night, with the Black Keys. It was stellar. I danced my face off.
Life without a face is a bit of an adjustment, but I’m getting used to it.
