I have met the folly of my ways, and its name is Drainage.

Saturday, April 7th, 2007

As my gardening partner John Henry says, I read too many books. It’s my first time growing potatoes, so before I even started I read copiously about it. There seemed to be One Right Way – which was, after you germinated the things, to dig a trench 2 feet deep, pile in the potatoes in […]

Popularity doesn’t mean jack.

Because as of today, according to the IMDB top 250 list, Toy Story 2 is the 161st best movie of all time. Right. Is Raiders of the Lost Ark (16) really better than The Sting (86), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (40), or The Bridge on the River Kwai (54)? Is it really so […]

Josh swears that tonight he’ll upload all my old blog entries. Yay more garden posts! In the mean time, here is Totemcat.

Gazpacho dreamin’

Thursday, April 5th, 2007

It seems somehow wrong to lovingly nurture something, coddling and providing for it, all the while thinking of how delicious it will taste when you devour it once it has reached adulthood. Ah well. What else am I supposed to think when I see my twenty tomatoes coming along so strong, big, and healthy, and […]

The real deal.

The pottery documentary trip didn’t work out, so (after copious shaming from my father when he heard I didn’t want to go), Josh and I both metroed out to the Tidal Basin yesterday morning in order to catch the peak of the cherry blossoms at dawn. We got up at 3 in the morning, and […]

Oh noes another hobby!

My self-proclaimed stalker Ann may think me a traitor, but I’m taking a stained glass course this session. We’ve had one class. And I made this Thing. (No, it’s not supposed to be anything. We just practiced all the cuts: straight, perpendicular, inner curved, outer curved; and then we put them back together again.) I […]

The Mans, they have saved my favicon! Many kisses!

Blogly woes.

Monday, April 2nd, 2007

WordPress has its good points. I do so enjoy being able to use the mouse when writing blog entries, instead of having to move the cursor around with the arrow keys. (In fact, writing it as if it’s a word document instead of an html file is really quite nice). I like the ability to […]

Our own little cherry blossom festival.

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

It finally stayed in bloom long enough to pose for all of you. Last year it chose to bloom during a weekend of wind storms, and not a single blossom remained. The D.C. Cherry Blossom Festival is going on downtown, and Josh is going to go photograph the trees at dawn. I wanted to go […]
