Adventures in Capitalism

I’ve been trying so hard lately to get rid of stuff. I have far too many things for one person. Especially one person who only has 2.5 rooms to put them in. Mom and Dad just tore apart the Media Room (my .5) to fix the plaster walls and ceiling … Read More ›

Knee Stuff

When I was seventeen, I twisted my knee. A year or two later, it was scoped and I was in physio. It’s never been well ever since. Last September/November I was in excruciating pain for about six weeks and could barely walk. I went to a new doctor and had … Read More ›

I feel like I want to make jewellery again but I’m not getting the motivation for it. I have ideas and plans and instead I sit on the couch. Today and last night I made a few heart pendants (which sell like crazy, go figure) but my hand is actually … Read More ›

Did I not mention the promotion?

So, er, yeah. I got promoted! No raise just yet, but I did get a bonus in the form of an Eee PC two weeks beforehand, and I’m sure the $$ is coming. Also, they didn’t exactly call it a promotion but that’s what it feels like to me. They’ve … Read More ›

This morning I started to count calories, something I’ve never ever ever done (and said I’d never do) in my life. It’s apparently a year of firsts, as I’ve also begun on a treadmill. Turns out I like it better than walking outside in terms of getting exercise (as opposed … Read More ›

New Toy!

I just got me a fantastic deal on an IBM Thinkpad r40. $400 for a laptop, dude! And it’s smoking fast for such a tiny, older machine. I’m typing this from my bedroom. Whee! It’s really going to be for my studio, so that when I take photos of my … Read More ›

I’m off to the doctor to see the results of the x-rays they took of my knee two weeks ago. I’m not in the excruciating pain I was in for about three weeks, but whenever anybody asks me how my knee is, I say, “weak and frightened.”  It’s been 13 years since … Read More ›

A note to my loved ones

Dear Everybody I Love, The heat wave that’s been plaguing the continent has finally noticed the northeast coast. It’s been 30 degrees and not raining for two whole days in a row! I’m off to swim shortly but I felt like updating. Life has never been this good, and I … Read More ›

Ella Fitzgerald

I saw/listened to most of this concert last night, and the website tells me the CDs are not for sale. Aargh.

Laird had a couple of pimples on the back of his neck that he was complaining about, so I offered my Avon Overnight Blemish Treatment. He scoffed at it for not being manly enough, so I trounced out of the room, got a Sharpie, and holding it very still with difficulty (due to the … Read More ›
