my brain


pants: BCBG, tee: Liz Lange, hat: F21


there are things we have to do. maintenance things. like change the lightbulbs and put WD-40 on the door hinges. wash the couch cushions and give the dog a haircut. 

but there was one thing on that list recently that i just couldn't do: buy a new shower curtain liner. and i needed to do it. badly. it was time. but i really just could not. something about it just made me a little bit sad. and i couldn't figure out why i was having such a struggle with it. i mean c'mon, it's gross. the old shower curtain liner smells faintly of moldy water. so disgusting right? but yesterday i was taking a shower and i realized i like the faint smell of moldy water. what?!?! then it hit me: i like that smell because it is the exact same smell of Splash Mountain at Disneyland (!!!!!!!!)

i thought it was amazing how my brain suddenly made the connection between a smell and my favorite place in the world, so i excitedly retold the story to JJ and he just stared at me and said, "you are so damn weird."

  2. Makaila just sent me over here telling me to read this post! I know EXACTLY what smell you're talking about. If I close my eyes, someone should hand me a churro, and it's like I'm at Disneyland. Perfect!

  6. You know you can throw the liner in the washing machine with a dash of bleach and it'll be good as new. I do it all the time. Better than buying a new one every three months.
