Someone needs to buy something from me

So I can get this for my laptop. A total non need, but it is so awesome. I want it in "Road Side Stand Turquoise to go on my red laptop. It would be so sweet. Here is the shop.

Like a car wreck, with glitter and tassles...

Found a website on stumble of the worst album covers. And they weren't kidding. Here are a few but once you go to the site, you will not be able to look away.

You must look at this blog

So I stumbled across this shop and then tumbled across her blog. Both are very interesting in the way that the artist knows she is a teenager and therefore is prone to moodiness and whininess but owns it and goes with it. I can't imagine that she is that moody though because her plushies are very colorful.

Jors and Rust, Jors and Rust (that's in a sing song voice)

Friday night was Russ Olson's book opening for "Jors and Rust" at Off-Broadway. "Jors and Rust" is a comic book full of characters like Jors and Rust and the adventures of Anchors Away. On display were original art panels from the book and the bands Bad Folk and the Monads performed. Good times. The book will be available Tuesday. A couple of places you can find it are Star Clippers and Subterranean Books.
That all sounded formal and nonpersonal, but you must buy it. Trust me.

Almost Valentines Day!

I made this little bit of cuteness for Valentine's Day. I had to list it quick or I would have kept it for myself. It's one of kind (unfortunately.)

New Toy

Dave gave me a little digital camera for Christmas. I believe it was fairly inexpensive so not the greatest quality of pictures can be taken. But do not let that fool you into thinking I don't like the results. The finished picture looks like the cross between an old polaroid and a watercolor painting. Plus the viewfinder is kind of askew so you are never sure of what yo are going to get. Above are some of the pictures taken at Christmas.


Oh thank god. My nephew has finally fallen asleep for his nap. That doesn't always happen when I babysit and I feel bad when he hasn't taken his nap. I hear he gets into everything when he hasn't taken a nap for the day. Whew.
Had a great time in St. Charles with Cams from Seattle and her friend Amy. We really dilly dallied and only had time for lunch and one store. We ate at the winery where I had an okay sandwich and a good glass of wine. Then we hit Rock, Paper, Scissors where everything was 30% off! Yay! Spent almost all of my Christmas money on pretty paper and fun paper punches. That night we went to Pho Grand for dinner. Holy cow it is so good. They have the best spring rolls I have ever had.
For New Years, Dave, Jana, Kris and I went to Cafe Rebekah's for dinner. Deserae of Flower's of Araby was performing there so we went for dinner. Kris and I had yummy beef kabobs and Jana and Dave had gyros. Yum. Needless to say, I have spent a lot of money this past weekend on eating out. At least it has all been good food.
Happy New Year everybody!
