Deep Thought I Often Have Here:
If there is one evolutionary adaptation that I really envy, it is a horse’s ability to quiver its muscles to get rid of flies. I really wish I could do that.

On my 24th birthday I meant to post this song by CSNY but I forgot. I was going to do it now for Katie’s, but I just listened to the song again and it turns out to be rather sad. When I went to Katie’s 14th birthday party, we had only known each other for maybe two weeks. We were village people in the school production of “Aladdin.” I didn’t really know anything...
This morning we played soccer
An Irish woman on the other team scored a goal and then the Bulgarian woman on my team scored as well. “And Bulgaria responds to the Irish goal!” someone shouted. All I could think of was Harry Potter.
Greetings from the circus farm!
So far so great. Building log piles, harvesting squash, being wakened by a rooster, walking on giant spools, y’know, the usual. What do you want to know?
We’ve only gone three miles. But before we even left the driveway Baffles was already baffling enough for the whole next five hours. THEN we went to get breakfast sandwiches at Brennans and I got to chatting with Eli, one of the guys who’s worked there forever. When I mentioned I lived in Astoria, he said so did he—on Broadway. Hey, I said, so did I! Small world! You know that...
Hi ho hi ho, to the circus farm we go.

I am broke. I spent all of my money on the tuition for the circus farm where I’ll be living and working for the next three months. I justified the amount of money I’m spending on this because of the education I’ll be getting and the fact that it covers room and board. Or so I thought. The program begins on Saturday and in the email I just received we were asked to make sure we...
Reunited and it feels so good
I am back in New Jersey for six days before going off on phase two of Alice in Adventureland: Circus Farm. I am going to the beach now. Tonight we’re having a lobster feast. New Jersey, I love you.
Last night in Mystic!
I might be back in NJ tomorrow in time to go to the Fireman’s Fair! Awesome!!!!
I haven’t been around much because I don’t have a computer but that doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten about you! In fact, on Friday there was a dog parade here at the Seaport and I met a doggy named Faith! Then I turned around and met one named Bingo! Say what! Yesterday, I got a postcard from HurricaneK! It had an adorable drawing of a kitty that looks like her Queso! On...
