you can’t always get what you want

Seen on twitter the other day: a woman who happens to be a stripper attempted to follow a woman who happens to be a food writer. The food writer blocks her, and tweets thusly:

Really why would a stripper (female) try to follow me? getting some weird ones as approach 2000 & starting [...]

Postcard from the San Juans

so it’s august 23rd, and we are on day 5 of our annual 2 week cruise. I’m escaping a brutal hot sunshine that surprised us out of nowhere about 2 hours ago. I think I’ve become entirely unaccustomed to sunshine after the non-summer Washington has experienced this year.So far we have spent [...]

well, maybe I won’t be good at a photo a day

’cause here is my first entry after saying that, but I don’t have a camera with me. I suppose I could use my cellphone, but honestly my office is not exactly photo inspiration as of yet. I still need to paint the 3 walls that aren’t vivid red. I’m thinking of a soft golden color, [...]

2011.08.12

hey. Hi.
My day today is laid back. I got into the office around 11am, which is late for me. Fifi is off this week, so I’ve had a bit more to do with Elliott’s business than I prefer, but Fifi is so awesome that she’s been coming in on lunch, and listening to voicemails/answering [...]

random stuff entry.

I love Spotify. (If you want an invite, I have a few, just email me – I signed up for premium). It’s SO much better than Pandora, as awesome as Pandora is. Why Spotify? Because I can play any song I want, any artist I want, create specific playlists, play my own music, transport it [...]

moving from poly to mono and back again, or vice versa

I haven’t written about poly issues in awhile, but with reviewing/publishing reviews on a couple of swing sites lately, it’s in the forefront of my mind again. While I wrote that I ultimately didn’t choose poly as a lifestyle, it’s not like the issue never crops up in a longterm relationship. I think any relationship [...]

so here’s something you don’t hear every day

Fifi just came into my office, to tell me about a rather strange phone call. A customer of Elliott’s company called in with question on his bill. No big, right? But then he continues with “and I’m having some life issues, and now the FBI is questioning me in my wife’s murder, and I think [...]

the concert the other night

I forgot to blog about how absofuckinglutely amazing the Brandi Carlile concert was the other night. I twittered about it, but it wasn’t enough. I think it was actually the single best live music experience I’ve had. For comparison, my top five concerts of all time:
1. Brandi Carlile at Mount Baker Theater, Bellingham
2. Nina Simone [...]

weekend wine love in Portland

Got back late last night from a little trip to Portland with our best friends. Natasha’s husband was turning 50, and he’s a wine lover as I am, so the four of us set off for a foodie and wine excursion.
There are things I hate about Portland, and things I love. In the hate [...]
