Deep fry all the things

I’ve written before about how eating gluten free has put a damper on my deep fried snacking habit. Well, not anymore! A deep fryer mysteriously fell into my cart at Target last week. Luckily it was on sale. On Saturday, we decided to try the chicken nuggets again, as well as making fried pickles. Apparently […]

The accidental hipster

I wish I had known my August was going to be so boring when I started the August Break. No matter. Today, I got a pair of glasses that I ordered from one of the websites that periodically offers cheap specs. It was kind of a fraught endeavor, in the first place, because I had […]

Midnight run

Left to my own devices, I’m a night person. I am happiest when I stay up late, late, late and don’t emerge from my bedroom until around noon. My best writing comes at night; I’ve learned that when I try to force it in the morning nothing works. Alas, this world just wasn’t built for […]

Rude cat is rude

P feeds the cats at 10p. We adopted this policy after feeding them in the morning led to earlier and earlier wakeups. As both P and I are confirmed night owls, this clearly would not do. I have learned that cats have an unerring inner clock. At five minutes after ten tonight, Amelie decided that […]

Health food

Today I visited the health food store two towns over. I go there infrequently to get the kinds of gluten-free stuff I don’t want to buy in bulk. I’m not sure why all health food stores smell the same. Like vitamins, maybe. Any time I go in, the customers are invariably me and the kind […]

Severe thunderstorm warning

There was a crazy thunderstorm this evening. The tornado sirens went off briefly and I huddled in the basement with my two rotten cats while P was in a stopped train somewhere between work and home. After the storm passed, the air outside was a weird red color. My neighbor, a former stormchaser, stared up […]

The August Break

My lovely pal Kim, one half of the team at The Deep Old Desk, pointed me to The August Break, where participants are encouraged to share their Augusts through photos. Share this:FacebookEmailPrint

Here are some pictures I have recently taken.

I really can’t express how much I love the Hipstamatic app. In other news, I’m on spring break. I have decided that I want to try to write a hundred pages while I’m out of class. I still have to work, but that does not signify. I want to see if I can push myself […]

Don't let me loose in Ikea with a camera

I got a Diana camera for Christmas, but every time I take a picture with it, I have an image in my mind of someone flushing dollar coins down the toilet, so I haven’t used it very much. The dollar coins are the new ones, with one of the presidents on. When’s the last time […]

This picture thing I'm doing.

So I’m trying (again!) to take a photo every day for a year. I’ve tried twice before, but managed to miss a day a couple of months in. (Oh hai I am a perfectionist.) I have a better system this time — shiny iPhone with camera and also handy alarm that says TAKE A PICTURE […]
