A Little Bit Older

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

Happy birthday to my favorite husband. TheMan turned 36 this morning at 6am but we thought we might start the celebrating a tad later. Say 6:15ish.

Why can’t birthdays all fall on weekends so they can be celebrated properly with a good sleeping in?

Garden Quasi Goddess!

Monday, July 23rd, 2007

Since prolonged exposure to Art Fair makes me itch, I decided to take the whole day off on Friday and not deal with it at all. HA! I guess art is good but four days of it can wear a soul down. Plus, it’s murder to get anywhere since half the streets are stuffed with art tents and they really do frown on driving pedal to the metal through the artists.

Kidnapped? Mmmmmm!

Wednesday, July 18th, 2007


Today was opening day of Art Fair so I took the camera in to get some snaps during lunchtime when I was planning to pop out and “do” the fair. Since I had the camera anyway, I decided to take some pics of the building. Here’s one of several (20? 30?) little stained glass insets all along the courtyard windows. They each depict some aspect of law (burglary, larceny, murder…) and have a cute little picture to accompany it. This one is my favorite. Hee.

Squeaky Wheel

Tuesday, July 17th, 2007

It’s been raining like a Mother…ahhhh…hand holder? Well it’s not all boomy and storm nasty but it is a constant drizzle meh with gloomy skies though. Gardens seem to like it (especially gardens that don’t get as much water as they would really like to have) I do not when the rain decides to up and leap into my Birk. Six of one I guess.

Midish July Green Report

Wednesday, July 11th, 2007

Yeah, yeah, yeah, a bazillion very late picto-posts from Origins and then I disappear off the face of the earth only to resurface with a Johnny-come-very-lately post dated entry. My excuse is that I *hate* getting the pics all gussied up for posting and someone decided to go all Origins picto-posty. ARRRGH! It takes me for freeking ever to tweak pictures for blog-alagation yet I always take a million bazillion of them. Aaaaaaand I just noticed that some weird artifacting is going on with the most recent pictures so not only am I late with the picto-posting, but all my pics look like they were rendered with crayon. Why? I don’t know. I think things are OK before the big booniverse switch but afterwards the quality goes down. You would think that I would have noticed this really soon off the bat but it took me about a month before I became aware of the poor pictures quality. Apparently it’s going to take even longer to fix it as I am lazy. Sorry that. My humble apologies to you booniverse regulars.

Origins 07: Two Shows is Like Work

Sunday, July 8th, 2007


The Sultan may agree. Two shows means he has twice as many “opportunities” for recounts. I do believe they did 3 recounts during one show and probably several more during the other. There was a lot of close voting.
