Poop, film and a few links to knock out the kinks


Where we live people fail to pick up their dog poop. This is absolutely infuriating. When I walk our dog, I have to constantly maneuver around the various piles of fecal matter left behind by lazy ass owners. Izzy needs to run in the grass because her condition gives her a sort of curled paw, so grass is more comfy. I constantly have to pull her out of it because there is fresh, a few days old and decimated poop. I am not sure why this is so difficult for people. Walk your dog and bring a bag. It is disgusting and nasty and shows no pride of your neighborhood. As my friend always says, "People are shit" and in this case he is correct. PICK IT UP PEOPLE!

One the best and most overlooked actors of our time is James LeGros. He has been in films like Scotland, PA, Living in Oblivion and the amazing Showtime miniseries, Sleeper Cell, which everyone in it was incredible. I hate that the same boring actors and reality show dredge is always getting props when this guy is fantastic. So James LeGros, I salute you!

  • One of my favorite movies ever - The Sure Thing
  • When we have a house, I will have a garden and yes, I will have a sublime shed.
  • Want to see something other than a Disney produced nightmare on Broadway? Let the talented actor, "Rocco" give you the 411 on his blog What's Good/What Blows in NY Theater.
  • Art can get boring, everyone has a Monet or Van Gogh reproduction. These authentic museum street banners from Betterwall.com are the bomb!
  • When I have money I am joining a yarn CSA.
  • A doctor in the NHS has some interesting stuff to say.
  • This would be a nice little vacation home in Charleston SC
  • The PBS American Masters documentary about Jerome Robbins is simply wonderful. Watch his Wedding/Bottle Dance in Fiddler which is mind blowing.
Cheers my dears, until we meet again,

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

I AM ON A MISSION

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe


I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…

A Good Book Here, A Good Book There

Took a hiatus. Yeah, I am sure you all noticed. Been trying to get things moving along and with that I had to slack and so I slacked on the blog. Now allow me to share our little artificial tree that our son and his grandma decorated with glee.


In the last two months or so, I no longer bring my computer upstairs. Instead I have started to read at night. While this may not sound like any big deal, it is a little for me. I love to read, but due to school, home, obligations, and writing a novel, I somehow pushed reading an actual book to the side.  Like a lot of folks I got more caught up in the rabbit hole of the internet. Now, I do love getting sucked down various rabbit holes, but I also felt that I needed to actually unplug.
Allow me to sidebar a bit here.

I had been struggling with my book for a very long time. In the last 6 months or so it got worse. I had lost the true nature of the story and could no longer hear the character voice. I am not the first writer this has happened to…
