|22 Feb 14||… just found a stash of old mix tapes. based on the song selection, I’d like to apologize to anyone I’ve ever known, dated or married.|
|22 Feb 14||… how soon until NBC packages #Ukraine protests with olympic gold win, and sets it to the theme from “Terms of Endearment?” #Sochi2014|

i’ve never seen quinny be so happy to be away from D.C. — happy to play with any toy he wanted, happy to get everyone’s undivided attention, happy to put a toy down and know exactly where it will be when he gets back.
maybe it wasn’t D.C. that he was excited to be away from.
