Busy weekend! Happy 2013

An eventful weekend!!

Friday night we went with friends A. & R. and baby O. to free first Friday at the Bellevue Art Museum. Beforehand we went to the apparently famous Din Tai Fung for DUMPLINGS. Oh my goodness it was delicious. Highly recommended.

Then we moseyed down to the art museum, trying to keep our [...]


So, I never said on this blog about Oscar.

I mentioned that he had a scary episode that resolved itself. After that he started eating again mostly, but it was just a few — maybe six? weeks — before we noticed his appetite was declining and he was losing weight pretty severely. I blogged about [...]

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 [...]

I’ll never dance with another

Next weekend is big ol’ sibling reunion time in Madison, Wisconsin. We spend Xmas with my stepmom, as she is the only person in either of our families who cares about the yearly reunion actually being on Dec. 24-25, so we have to make sure to plan to see the other families throughout the year. [...]

She’d had no idea

Oh good, it’s still here!
Several smallish stories piled up over the last … month.
Mentally composed on Monday, September 19: I am cranky because last night I organized my life: figured out hours at my new job (which is the same as my old job), blocked out homework time during every day so I can try [...]

Drink it by the pitcher and not by the glass

I have just turned in my last paper of the summer — well, my last real paper — almost twenty minutes early! Woo!
I have also: been in Shelby’s wedding (cried); got in more arguments with my mother, who is not so good at rationality sometimes (did not cry); cried about a puppy I fell in [...]

that’s what we pay him for, that’s why we pray

i’m such a wimp.
last night we watched totoro and it was super cute. i supsect that for other people it’s about monsters or spirits or whatever the hell totoro is, but for me it’s about sisters. especially the part where the little one gets lost and the big one is so worried. it made me [...]

he still found time to write to her

there is not much news on the three-bean salad front today, except that i am going to make a whole bunch tonight and take it to stephanie‘s potluck. i have never actually been to a potluck before, and i am excited to have a yummy thing to take!
even if it is a toga potluck. my [...]

too aware of the pending

oh, now i remember why i was hesitant at first to live with my mom next year. it’s because after about three hours i wanted to walk in front of a bus. she whacked my leg, and i asked why she had done that, and she told me to rephrase the question because i was [...]

i want to be cool, tall, vulnerable and luscious

in my quest to stop trying to collect things, i have started to collect containers for things. this is partly because i am also interested in making things from other things lately, and partially because i feel like if i could just put the stuff i have into containers and organize it a little better, [...]
