Joe Pug at Fitzgeralds $12 – Joe pug is one of my all time favorite favorite favorite folk singers. Fun story: Dena went with me to see him our freshman year at Mangos (before it got weird). I expected the crowd to be full of hipsters. Nope, full of guys in polos and backwards hats and north face jackets. That was a weird. Check out my favorite song by him.

(dena says:) for all you wondering, this is one of the many box turtles at my parents house. we keep most of them in a fenced out portion of our back yard where they have room to frolic and play.this little guy would likely squeeze through the cracks so he’s living on the back porch until he grows up a little. we found him loose in the backyard when he was the size of a sliver dollar, so freakin’ cute are baby turtles. while taking these pictures my mom fed him a worm (from the compost) and a roach (we found inside the house) so, don’t worry, i take good care of my pets.
