Dear Mr. Vernon:

We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong, but we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us… In the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain… …and an athlete… …and a basket case… …a princess… …and a criminal.

Does that answer your question?
Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.

Did you do Tang? The misconception is it was invented for astronauts. Not so says Wikipedia. Sales did take off when it was used by NASA for manned spaceflight programs however.  According to Buzz Aldrin in 2013: Tang sux.

I don’t remember what it tasted like but the jug does fill me with some happy nostalgia, particularly for a time when the more sugar that got into my mouth the better it was.

Smitten with this OJ carton pencil case from Smiggle. Activates all my novelty and stationery taste buds. And it’s orange! The new black.

Hard pressed to find cute vintage juice glasses these days. And making up sets? Forget about it. Pretty much. A local op shop volunteer said single glasses or uneven numbers generally get trashed. And not just trashed, smashed to save on tip fees. Oh the waste! No one wants odd glasses apparently. Not even for camping. But what about me? The oddly obsessed…

I say let go of your uptight matchy matchy assumptions people. Embrace the individual character and beauty of random pieces.

vintage mismatched juice glasses Savour the differences. They can be unified by colour or size, or not.

More less fruity but still juicy combos. I’m married to Mr Matchy-Matchy so these are going in the shop.

So what’s your taste?
Nothing wrong with same-same, just don’t fear the oddness. 

Cheers 🙂
