When I was six, I decided the one place I would never live was California. Naturally, I've been in San Diego nearly five years now. At the encouragement of a dear friend, I'm here on Tumblr to share musings on life, funny stories - many of which will likely include my older brother or an instance where my poor hearing results in inappropriate responses (hence the blog name), culinary and crafty creations to come, and whatever else I discover and decide to share along the way...
