Happy Tuesday Peeps.

I finished the cowl!  Good for hiding, goofing, and warming.  I am uber (no, I did not mean Buber?!) pleased at the results, my first successful knitting project, huzzah!  Here’s what I did if you’d like to replicate:

Cast on 32 sts (or another multiple of 8 ) on number 11 (8mm) needles, then knit and purl until it’s the length you like.  Cast off and sew the ends together.  Take goofy photos.  Be happy.  Repeat, if desired.

I hope this is obvious, but just in case, repeat each set of directions until the end of the row.

Row 1: P1, K7

Row 2 and 8: K1, P5, K1, P1

Row 3 and 7: K2, P1, K3, P1, K1

Rows 4 and 6: P2, K1, P1, K1, P3

Row 5: K4, P1, K3

The photos remind me, I am nearly ready for the big bathroom reveal!  About time, huh?  Thanks to one set of crapper-doodle plumbers (and a good one to fix them all), this is the project that goes on and on till the break of dawn.  But we are nearly there, for reals!  I will be putting up art this weekend and then turning the den of the porcelain throne into a major paparazzi center.  Stay tuned…

Oh, and I thought I would share a photo of my favorite bicycle commuter.  Surprise!  I am waiting for you cutie pie.  Now gimme a kiss!

Wait, wait!  One more thing, click here for the awesome Jimmy Fallon singing, a la Doors, the theme song to Reading Rainbow.  The man is awesome…

Happy Saturday!

How are you?  Enjoying fall?  It’s been a pretty terrific one here,so far, lots of dry days and beautiful evenings, with enough rain to keep it interesting and moist.  “The night was moist.”  Do you remember that from Throw Momma from the Train?  I love that movie.  Danny DeVito, you are wack-a-doodle and make me laugh.

So, to happenings as of late. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your lovely comments and support during my campaign to be a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.  You guys are beyond terrific.  Truly.  As for Mr. Fallon, he isn’t banging down my door, but it’s out there, as they say, and I just feel in my bones that something marvelous will come of it all.  Indeed I do.  If anything, I certainly have a great appreciation for anyone who writes and directs.  Those one minute films take a lot of effort!

The first four photos, as you are likely to have surmised, are from Halloween (if not, maybe you should put down that cocktail!).  The hubster is, you guessed it, a crow!  Aren’t his wings lovely?  I am water and definitely drawn to the abstract.  We had a grand time at our friends Satan (Stan the Insurance Man) and the Bar Wench’s party.  There were many fine costumes, yummy drinks, and good food, like sausages wrapped in Pillsbury croissant dough.  I kid you not, those are the height of splendor in party fare!  I ate more than my fair share.

We also spent a lovely rooftop evening at a fund raiser for one of our new favorite places, Opal Creek Ancient Forest Center.  There was an awesome band called Stumbleweed (traditional bluegrass for all your high lonesome needs), cocktails served up from the stellar and local House Spirits (the Bees Knees!), and lots of delicious food prepared by Opal Creek’s uber-chef Rebekah.  Not surprisingly, we met some very fine folks just as interested in keeping this gem of a place intact for the ages, including the architect for the rather deluxe and tallest building in the the blurry photo below.  How cool to be engaged in conversation and ask, “Would I know any of your work?” and have her grin and say, “Well, yes, that building right there.”  Huzzah!

Finally, a little update on the Subaru.  After some reflection, we’ve decided to donate it to charity.  The hubster is a happy bicycle commuter three days a week, rain or shine, and we just don’t need it.  Besides, the Portland Rescue Mission has what looks like a pretty terrific program that trains people to work on cars like ours before selling them to benefit their charity.  It’s a pretty sweet deal all around.  I am even slightly grateful to the thug who stole our car for bringing this about.  Life is pretty sweet.

Be well!

Hello Everyone!  Hello Jimmy!

Welcome to the the final week of my campaign to be a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.  I hope you enjoy the video.

Also, if you are so inclined, and I certainly hope that you are – lend me your support!  Leave a comment here on the blog, send Jimmy a Tweet (@jimmyfallon), or leave him a message on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Facebook page stating my guest worthiness.  I’d sure appreciate it!

Oh, and please, please, please vote in your local elections.  Our voices, in no small part, are what make this democracy great!


Hello Jimmy, friends, and neighbors –

I hope you’re having a lovely day and are keeping warmer than I am.  It’s downright chilly in Portland.  And drat to the elephant in the room.  Making this week’s installment of my campaign to be a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon was more arduous than expected, complete with a small artistic meltdown (What am I doing?) and multiple upload failures (Aw snap!).  Whew!  Glad that’s over.  My apologies for the long delay.

As for the content, I celebrate the crazy vault of song lyrics located in my head without exposing your delicate senses to my untrained voice.  Maybe music lessons are in my future.  What say you, crystal ball?  After my appearance on Jimmy Fallon?  Hot damn!  Anyhoo, the watercolors, just in case you’re wondering, save the aeroplane (a favorite rubber stamp), are all mine.  Not bad for a beginner, if I do say so myself.

Hello Everyone!  Hello Jimmy!

Welcome to the second installment of my campaign to be a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, further showcasing my talents and interests. Have I also mentioned that I am house trained and eat very little? You’ll notice the improved video quality (the sound actually matches my mouth!), though Milo the cat is ever determined to have his voice heard.  It is election season, after all, and just so you know, I am by no means shirking my civic duty with this campaign.  Voting is important!  The only disappointing bit is that my scan of the painting I made turned out uber-creepy (watch the video if you don’t know what I’m talking about) and not at all blog worthy.  Sigh.  Hopefully I can remedy this before next week.

Be Well –
