French Braids

A good blog title for a post I can't write.

One more day in the long weekend.

Could I actually send the book proposal on Monday?

FYI: I still hate Spiderman. Hate Spiderman 3 even more.

Merky Buckets

or merci beaucoup for you Frenchies out there.

What I'm grateful for this thanksgiving:

1) Mr. G.
2) My sanity.
3) My family.
4) My friends.
5) The amazingly awesome year of music, books, comics and film.
6) My car, aka the moving disco machine.
7) My job and coworkers.
8) inner strength
9) Bev
10) Australia

I am truly happier than I've ever been and that's not to say that I'm unchallenged. The point is to be happy despite the difficult parts of life. If you can do that, you are invincible.

Snickity Snack

I've already read about a third of the comic books and graphic novels I bought on Saturday. I've been on an icarus knitting spree for the last two weeks. And I haven't done anything on the book. Shame on me.

I need to put myself on an x-box ban until that book is sent out.

Australia's weighing heavy in my mind again. We've been making plans. There is a week-long stay at a beach condo in my future. I can almost hear the waves crashing in my sleep.

But then I start freaking out because I'm going to have to wear a bathing suit in public again. And not that I'm overweight or anything, but I'm not necessarily beach material. And the bathing suit makers do nothing to make it any easier. Most of the time they forget that women have boobs. I would pay a lot of money to find a bathing suit that supported my rack and didn't look atrocious. Perhaps instead I should hope for Bush to voluntarily leave office as that's more likely to happen.

stay tuned for my thankful list...

Note To Self:

cds to buy this week:

Kylie Minogue
Vhs and Beta


I Live In San Francisco And You Don't #8

Man Tap Dances Across The Golden Gate Bridge For 75th Birthday.

Hmm. That reminds me I've got to start figuring out what I want to do for the big 3-0.



I could mail the book proposal on Monday.

It could have been mailed any day last week.

I'm totally ashamed.

Been distracting myself instead. With people, books, movies and video games.

And now I'm supposed to be getting ready to cook thanksgiving.

And I haven't bought a damned thing.

Get it together!!!!!!!!!

Thoughts for the week (weak):

1) Beowolf rocks.

2) The Nob Hill Masonic Auditorium sucks.

3) Geeks are not dorks.

4) Red. Red. Wine. Goes to my head.

5) I do not like acrylic blends.

6) Loving the staff at Marin Fiber Arts.

7) Not long til Australia.

8) Hanging out with my cousin is good fun.

9) Happy Birthday Bev.

10) I still wish I had an extra head and an extra pair of arms.

Anything But Hear The Voice

Crazy times.

Around me my friends are breaking up with lovers, moving house, and serving jury duty.

Yet everything remains the same for me.

Or not.

I could finish the book proposal this week and have it mailed out by FRIDAY.

The only thing stopping me: I need people to read through it and offer editorial advice.

I better get on that so here's a few photos to keep you busy

The first fire of the year

Tea Time

A few thoughts:

1) I want more rain.

2) It's not crazy when your brain has a mini-meltdown and you have a million things to do in the space of two days.

3) It's also not crazy when you eschew all of the things you're supposed to do to play video games and attend last-minute concerts with your cousin.

4) I go to Australia again in 4 months.

5) I should give up on making a pumpkin pasta sauce. It never comes out the way I want it.

6) The hummingbirds are few and far between.

7) Despite the plethora of awesome films I'm not in the mood to go to the movies.

8) Albums I want to get: Silversun Pickups and VHS or Beta (or is it Beta or VHS?).

Knitting is good for your health

Since I've been working full-time this means that I'm knitting full time. I don't have access to the internet so that means there's nothing to distract me from knitting. I average about 5 hours of knitting a day and I think my arms are getting a bit stronger.

My right bicep keeps twitching at night. Could that be a sign of muscle growth or muscle fatigue?
