I was dragged out to my first Richmond Folk Festival today. I was ready to call it a day before we even parked the car, but luckily my friends are a little more persistent than me. 

To be honest, I had a great time. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone out and done something. Seriously. I don’t do anything but school work these days. So doing something was nice. And I held a pet rat. That was pretty incredible. Almost as awesome as the time I held a baby raccoon

I have no explanation for what is happening. Gary is doing some yoga-transformer pose while hauntingly staring straight ahead at me and Miranda. He maintained this pose for a solid 30 seconds before resuming normal activity.

Colby’s 28th surprise birthday party was a hit. It’s weird. I don’t remember Colby asking us to all turn toward him, like we are in the picture. I just remember him adjusting his posture and us all following suit. It was weird. And this picture is weird. Happy birthday, weirdo. 
Colby’s response after seeing how the picture turned out, “Ahh, the chandelier is too low!”

I didn’t expect any of these guys to survive, so I didn’t want to post about them. Now we are going on three months and I just feel like I am hiding them at this point.
The little one, Olive Oil, I won at a fair in West Virginia. Her companion, Popeye, died quickly upon our return to Richmond. I don’t know if goldfish are social, but I felt bad for O.O. so I found her two new friends at Petsmart, Dahlia and Ezekiel.

According to Miranda, Gary only spends time in my room out of habit because it used to be her room. I can’t argue. Look at him. He is giving me the what-are-you-doing-in-Miranda’s-bed look.

I finally met Mallory and RC's little three-week-old creation, Dylan. 

Mallory’s mommy mantra is simple: Keep him alive.

I ate Campbell’s Tomato Soup (the microwaveable cup-type) today. I loved it. Then I found this. In my mouth. My hair was tightly fastened back. Appetite lost.
