Videos to watch

Here is one that is timely because the Supreme Court should go on ahead and not be jerks, and make things right. Thanks Macklemore.

Here is one I like to watch because it is about my city, and my bus system. I am pretty sure that I’ve posted The Blue Scholars‘ excellent song “Joe Metro” [...]

Oscar has a scary

Oscar, the best dog ever, had an unexpected and undesirable vet visit this morning. G. texted me just as I was getting out of the bus tunnel with “Oscar is sick we are at the vet.” I immediately started freaking out and he called a few seconds later to say Oscar had been curled up [...]

Waiting for something to happen

“The aggressively kinked noodles form an aesthetically pleasing nest in cup or bowl, but when slurped, their sharp bends spray droplets of broth that settle uncomfortably about the lips and leave dots on your computer screen.” Thanks, Mr. Noodle.

Lately I have been reading way too much Mimi Smartypants again, starting from the beginning and working [...]

Pour éclairer tes yeux de rêve

Dogs are snoring, and so is G. I am up late (but not that late) because Ten Things I Hate About You is on, and because I had a cup of coffee at about 3:30, and because my Friday night bourbon is accompanying me. (Julia Stiles has amazing hair in this movie.) I have an [...]

it’s hard to make the good things last

yesterday i was going to post about how nice it is of seattle to ease my transition into my new identity as short-haired almost-curly person with warm springy weather, but today (the day i finally left my coat at home and wore flip-flops instead of clogs) it is grey and spattery.

restlessness has seized me now

i really want to redesign. i was going to do some work on it before i left seattle since the ischool has some tablet pcs for checkout, and i could draw fun things. i forgot to, though, so now i have to wait until i get back to seattle. maybe. or get used to drawing [...]

me, my thoughts are flower-strewn

omg morningstar farms‘ baby corn dogs are soooo good! i am in eat-all-the-junk-food-in-the-world mode right now, and these, happily, satisfied that. it could have been worse. it could have been pizza! or potato chips! but it was baby corn dogs and frozen bean&cheese burritos.
i have a job interview on friday at 1:30. i don’t want [...]

and i may be leaving myself open

no, i’m not dead, though it’s not for school’s lack of trying. recently i have had time to go to the gym (sometimes), go to a show (but leave early), and have a good valentine’s day weekend, but that is about it. this whole traveling-every-other-weekend setup is making me reevaluate my homework policy, which has [...]
