I’m going to Miami today. And I have this song in my head. I realize it’s really built for Africa more than Miami, but something about it is ringing true in my ears.

I’ve been listening to Dum Dum Girls a lot over the last week. They just sound like summer. Don’t you agree? Jail La La He Gets Me High There is a Light That Never Goes Out (This is probably my favorite cover of this song that I’ve heard)

This is what I’m listening to today. Youth Gone. Toss and Turn. And Lina.
It’s an unfortunate name, Garrett Gue. So I’m focusing on the sugar. Mmm, sugar. Right about now, I’m seriously considering whether I should completely give it up … or celebrate it by making cookies. Decisions, decisions. Photo from Crossfit Oakland. Ad from Pierce Mattie Public Relations.
