my holiday wrapping this year

still not attractive, but getting better!

blue blue blue...

...but sweet sweet sweet. today i'll be baking carrot cake cupcakes (popular demand), eggnog cookies, buckeyes, and of course, sugar cookies. pics to come!

no commentary necessary

take me to your ski hill

i'm not a skier, never been. but i'd like to, and i'd like to pop my skiing cherry at this spot. can you imagine?  the full frontal windows would no doubt freak me out at night when it got pitch black...i'd imagine bears, rapists, et al. approaching my pod...but there's a little fun in the scare anyway.

someone please take me here and sign me up for the bunny hill!

when i'm gone

i'll take one of papa joe's hand carved coffins shaped like either a slice of pizza, a high heel, or a cat. they really do it up big in Ghana!

from the exhibition description:

"Reflecting the ambition or the trade of the person for whom they were made they are not dead things but are instead a manifestation of and indeed an affirmation of life."

sounds pretty cool to me!

the story of eames furniture

2 volumes, 800 pages, and over 2,500 images! this would basically make the perfect Christmas present for at least 7 or 8 people on my list...unfortunately the cost is a bit prohibitive. i'll be adding it to my amazon wish list regardless. irregardless. whatever.

gotta lot of whiskers on your chinny chin chin

put up a few christmas decorations around the house. still contemplating a tree. ahhh who are we kidding, i'll most likely get one. in the meantime, searching out some alternatives to the traditional holiday music. this one's rather timely as mr blow was just a victim of the new TSA pat down requirements. no disrepect, but the man is not looking too hot these days...bring back the butterfly collar and ditch that corny hat!



working from home or how to not clean your whole apartment when you should be working

as it turns out, it is really difficult to work from home. i spent all day yesterday cleaning, organizing, and rearranging my bedroom, dressing room, and living room rather than doing, you know, actual work. 

any tips from the peanut gallery?

my office

this ain't no blue velvet

david lynch has started making music and i like it. the two tracks are pretty different, but also go well together. they're both suited to this rainy, gloomy, gray, gross, new york day.

mine! i want it

totally frivolous, yes...but i still want it. at least just for the case!

bakin' again

made these guys for gina's goodbye dinner (SAD!)...also made some buckeyes last week, but they were too unsightly to photograph...i'll get 'em next time!

carrot cake cupcake + maple cream cheese frosting

happy thanksgiving everybody

this will be a weird thanksgiving, for sure. my first without my family &/or other loved ones. slept on making plans, so instead i'll see where the day takes me. i did pick up a bottle of red, however, and plan on making carrot cake cupcakes (both regular & miniature) tomorrow morning, so it'll be off to a good start at the least! maybe i'll even attempt a batch of grandma's noodles...

take me to another land

so after i posted the roadtrip pics i realized, wait! i do have more. turns out i bought a holga in portland and took a few rolls with it. when i got back the pricey prints i decided the return on investment might not be worth it, as not many photos came out. but i've revisited the ones that did and think the hard work might be worth it...

i've added them to the set here. they're all in black and white...selects below.

montana ambassadors

most beautiful place in america? i think so. glacier national park


photo time (again)

reuter's 55 best photos from the year...if you're like me and don't read as much news as you should, the stories behind a lot of the selected photos are worth your time. my favorites below...

take me to another place

here are some shots from a month long road trip i took this summer. a couple days in i thought my camera was broken, so i only shot two rolls the whole time. big bummer. oh well, sometimes it's nice to just remember things the way they were, without a picture to prove it.

new orleans is hot hot hot. dehydrated myself that day

friendly guy

a ghost town in new mexico...this particular town had a cow guarding it...he did not like us
