And I was worried I wasn't in the spirit of the season...

Thanks to S for bringing me to the kiddo party yesterday... we ate mini corndogs, drank Hi-C and grape soda and got wrapped up like mummies by eight year olds armed with Charmin and an innate sense of wickedness ~ then watched as the Thriller video Blew. Their. Minds.

And one charming devilette said I looked like I belonged on Diagon Alley in my green skirt, purple stockings, pointy hat and glowing false eyelashes (honey, you've made a friend for life...)

One more project

A purse.
Just to see if I could make a purse.

a friday spent in

The last few weeks have been incredibly hectic, so I used tonight to stay in and knit, do laundry, knit some more and chat with friends.

I'm definitely getting into the knitting, a little TOO into it, maybe.

This was supposed to be a fitted hat... but I'm new to knitting to measure, so it became an oops-beret.

Action shot...

Oh, and I forgot I have an older laptop... a little Mozilla updating and I'm uploading knitting at midnight...

I won't lie, it's a glamorous life.

Computer issues

so laptop's power cord is officially shot
it's slightly over a year old, and I don't know if apple will replace it or not
so I have 45 min of time left on my battery
and I'm not using it for this
and with a new production in the theater and fundraising well underway, I haven't time to run to the eastside to argue with some techie-emo about how a 14 month old plug could have warn through its plastic covering and shorted out.
and $79 is too steep a price to pay

plus its been nice to not run over the computer everytime there's a fact i NEED to know.

it's nice to be disconnected...

Eat shit, feel better

I wholly agree.

I often get a screwed look when I share with some unsuspecting individual that I swim in Lake Erie - a lot.

They're usually pretty sissified... lovin' the big box and overusing the anti-bacterial everything, whining that anything remotely primal or human is "gross."

I bet they're a JOY in the sack, too.

Well, Ha! Spinach will kill you.

Meanwhile, I eat Bubolathrax* for breakfast and am never afraid of getting sticky.

*The mythical biological agent created from Bubonic Plague, Ebola and Anthrax.

Repetition repetition art repetition

I was lucky enough to take the first brisk fall day off and spend it rusticating. Lucky for us, we have the urbane among the rural in Oberlin, where there is a wonderful, under-appreciated art museum: Allen Memorial Art Museum.

While there, I saw these two pieces, interestingly enough, both focused on repetition, apparently my new mode.

Willie Cole - Man Spirit Mask, 1999

Chix with Stix

About a month ago, a friend started a stitch n' bitch at a coffee shop on the east side.
I'd tried to learn to knit 3 times prior, to no avail and whole lotta knots.
Thanks to P for teaching how to cast on and purl, K for my knit stitch and L for casting off.

My first completed project... a muffler scarfie thing with sassy vintage pin.

Action shot...

Now if only it would cool off so I could wear it.

The Kingdom

Saw it.
Loved it.
Love Chris Cooper.

Some coincidences to ponder....

I went to college with Jen Garner, I was theater major, we shared a dressing room when she was a fancy senior and I was lowly frosh and we were in Jacques Brel.
She taught me how to make hair scrunchies.

While in school, I developed a friendship with a gun-toting son of State Dept. officials who were always in the Middle East. He always reminded me of Alex P. Keaton, from Family Ties.
He wanted to join the FBI and shoot things. They did a show together. It was Chekov, in it his character shoots himself.

The summer after my sophomore year, I worked at a summer stock that Jen suggested I check out. That summer, we did Love Letters, starring Michael Gross... of Family Ties fame. I washed his socks.

I saw The Kingdom and Jason Bateman was in it with Jen, his sister is Justine Bateman, from FAMILY TIES. (Incidentally, she is now in Men in Trees with Emily Bergl who was in The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man in the Moon Marigolds at a theater I worked for in VT and played opposite Liza Weil who was on Gilmore Girls... where Ms. Bergl did a cameo or two... but i digress... no guns or FBI or Family Ties ties to them, really.)

It doesn't really MEAN anything, but its just weird and I thought I'd share.
