Monsters--cute ones--are part of my job, and I honestly can't get enough of them. Clearly, neither can this guy. The site is in German, but Monster humor is a universal language.

This is why we're friends

Last night I spent almost 10 hours hanging out with my friends from high school. I laughed a lot, drank a lot, and had multiple serious conversations.

Today I spent four hours in a cafe with my friends from my old job. When we weren't eating, we were laughing and talking and probably annoying the hell out of our waiter.

This is, as far as I'm concerned, time well spent. As much and I enjoy my alone time, I am focusing this year (as I did last year) on making sure I dedicate time to my friends. I used to find myself floating through life in an isolated bubble, not returning phone calls or keeping up communication. I miss a lot that way, and I'm determined to change that.

Plus, my friends are a lot of fun to hang out with. So: win win. Win.

I love bands

Two shows to look forward to:

Propagandhi and Superdrag

Both at the Music Hall of Hipsterville, which boasts some of the best women's restrooms I've seen at a concert venue.

Why pennies?

An explanation of the name of the blog:

1 - It is a reference to a part of my name. And no, my first name is not Penny.

2 - It is a reference to my salary. I work for a non-profit.

3 - It is a reference to the little things in life. They tend to make it awesome.

4 - It is a reference to the length of the posts. I'd like to write often without feeling the pressure to write a lot.
