As in, …I miss my former home. To be specific, I didn't grow up in Seattle. It was 20 miles north, up in Everett. Although the trip was for a sad reason, it is always good to see where I'm from, and to spend time with my best friend and her amazing family. I like Minnesota just fine. There's nothing … Read More

What I'm listening to this morning, as I'm finishing up my packing before I head out, from the album  Burn to Shine by Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals. Beautiful man. Beautiful song.

This is a photo of my window, taken from the inside. I have an old house. And old windows. And they become covered with the most beautiful frost.

I tell Dan this morning that I want to buy some layering tees, long and short sleeved… that I really think it's going to be my critical wardrobe plan for winter 2008… that I think it's time that I start layering. His reply: "I've been saying that for years. I practically invented layering."

Because I have nothing better to do with those 47 seconds in the early evening. My goal? To make a complete documentary one day, full of clips. Just like this.

Going green

I know…it looks so good you can almost taste it. So I caught a few minutes of Oprah last week—one of Dr. Oz's appearances on the show—(and yes, the man has some good science, but good LORD, his book, You on a Diet, is so saturated with horrifically bad similes, it's virtually UNreadable)—and he was forcing Oprah to try his … Read More

Boy in leaf pile

News from the front: 1.) G5 died last Thursday, again. They say the third time is a charm, so I'm praying to little Stevie "Wonder" Jobs that his black-clad, geek-hot minions will save the day, again. 2.) I went a little nuts over the weekend, in my computer-angst induced haze, and bought this without much forethought or afterthought. And now … Read More
