Summer here means many things: Watermelon, bikes*, bugs, hot dogs, freon, moss, dairy-free fudgsicles, sweat and most importantly DIP-DYE. Special thanks to Leigh Patterson for providing the dyes + bathtub for the below creation.
*I wish I had one. I bought an Arabic class instead. Next year.
Sometimes I play this game called “One Year Ago Today.” The basic premise is: What were you doing one year ago today. Simple enough.
Anyway for proof that life is cyclical, one year ago today I wrote about how Vancouver’s Olympic mascot looked like a joint, and I said I was going to invent a pregnancy test that shoots out flames when you’re pregnant. And now, here, today, yesterday, on earth, London has revealed its 2012 mascot, which slightly resembles … a pregnancy test. A pregnancy test with legs. That shoots out flames when you’re pregnant. And you can also smoke it.
So, in other news, it’s summer! Summer is cake. I love it every year just the same. Pax aestas, people.
Oh p.s.! I wrote this piece on graduation speeches (Barb’s the star of the show, naturally) for the best website besides the one I work for.
Summer is sooooooo fun! So far I have 1) gone to Star of India 2) gone to the pharmacy.
Some are saying that the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Torch resembles a joint. Do you think it’s an inside joke? To me it looks like a pregnancy test. Oh my god, I am going to make a pregnancy test that shoots out flames when you’re pregnant. I’m going to be a millionaire.
