i went to the university of michigan for college, and after my boyfriend michael and i went our separate ways and moved out of our awesomely tiny little apartment with big storefront windows, i lived in an old house with my friends emily and kelsey for our senior year. it was good times. emily and i started a zine project called zeitgeist, with about twenty contributing teams from almost as many states, wherein everyone made a zine within the same seven-day period and mailed a copy to each contributor. it was quite awesome. below are polaroids of emily and i up late finishing our submission, circa 2006.
emilia lives in new orleans now, and is getting married to her perfect-for-her man jon in october, so she's back in town this weekend for her bridal shower and so i can help plan her wedding (psyched! i pretty much looove planning weddings). i'm always so happy when she (and our other roomate kelso, too) are back in town. so is shoshi, evidently, who kept chanting "em-ly, em-ly, EM-LY!" the whole way over to her house last night. it was good to see that nothing has changed. she wore this gorgeous silky red dress topped with an enormous u of m hoodie, and made us oven-roasted salmon with kale-and-pesto pasta, which she insisted on serving in green tupperware containers from 1987 which she called our "troughs." ah, em-ly. it's good to have you back.
