hello.  well, here i am, still drinking coffee and sitting at the computer at 1:15 p.m. on a friday afternoon.  is it friday?  yes.  and i don’t work tonight.  yay! 

what’s been up? 

well, as those of you who attended it 5 years ago, last thursday marked the 5th anniversary of our wedding.  we spent the evening around amsterdam, having a fantastic time just talking and goofing off, then flew to lyon the next morning to visit our friends steen and annemette, and to enjoy french food.  ah…

i ate frog legs!  i took a picture, but it’s not much to see.  so i won’t add it.  they were  smothered in garlic, and the most interesting thing was that you could pick up a piece and it was really the whole frog body, minus the head, and you just ate the meat off the legs.  and no, actually, i don’t think it tasted like chicken.  i also don’t think that alligator tastes like chicken.  frog legs had the texture of crab or lobster, actually, i thought… but i don’t know about flavor.  it was very garlicky and buttery.

other news…

well, i promised to myself that i’d get working on my espresso business as soon as scott left, but i haven’t.  well, i tried, but had some confusion of where to start, and got caught up in the small details.  in the meantime, the interesting job that i nearly got at a film rights company back before i took the waitressing job may have led to another interesting job.  the woman there, who i liked very much, passed my name on over the weekend to a friend of hers, who runs another interesting film company.  it’s much bigger, so i don’t know how flexible they will be, but i sent on my cv and a nice letter yesterday, and we’ll see how it pans out. 

i’m taking up mask-making again, and possibly for profit. 

i’m finishing up a dutch-language cookbook for dick’s dad, mostly to amuse him with my bad grammar.  šŸ™‚  and pictures.  šŸ™‚

i’ve had a bad cold the past few days.  it sucks.  i think that’s all for the cut-away.

 maybe in this case, the cut-away wasn’t necessary.  it wasn’t very long.
fool that i am.

i just wanted to do it.
it’s raining, so my brilliant idea of taking the motorcycle to the cherry farms today and buying a large crate of cherries isn’t going to work very nicely.  oh well.  i guess i’ll finish some of the projects i’ve started this past month.  and not finished. 

tonight, matt and cheryl and i (and maybe bart? no idea) are either going to see a movie, or possibly to a reading of a biography about alice b. sheldon, aka james tiptree jr.

i’m voting for the reading, but cheryl has an appointment at the vet’s, and it may not work, timewise.


  1. happy anniversary!
