An Amusing and Surreal Moment

                                          *An Oldie But A Goodie Song

Last night while I cooked dinner I regressed back to my youth and began blaring music that my friends and I used to boogie to in the clubs. Here I was, bopping around my kitchen to songs by Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Psychedelic Furs, Love and Rockets, all good stuff, and making the house favorite recipe of Zesty Chicken Enchiladas. I used shrimp for chicken and added corn and spinach and bell peppers. I had no cream so used milk instead and since I am sans tomatillos I used salsa verde instead. All while our two year old son ran in and out, amused by his Mama singing Tool's Parabola on the top of her lungs as she handed him more pieces of cheese.

Sometimes it is good not to be a full on grown up and enjoy life.

I think of movies and shows that depict people 50-150 years ago and how 40 was middle age and old and you wore helmet hair and clutched your pearls at anything "radical". I am grateful to be a Generation X-er, sure there were drawbacks, but who hasn't had any in their teen years? I like to believe that people in my age group are aging just like me. With whatever grace and humor they have and showing people that being in your 40's does not mean you are a boring old blob. And let's be honest, but I grew up with the best music of any generation so there. LOL

Here are some of the songs I was dancing around to last night. Some of you may find it rubbish or offensive or you may be turned on and find it fun. You may also think I am batty and you would not be the first. So without further chatter...

Ministry - We Believe

Parabola - Tool

Skinny Puppy - Blue Serge

Psychedelic Furs - Heartbeat

The Beatles - Tomorrow Never Knows

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.

The No Name Post

Thanks for putting up with my little rant yesterday. Now, even though I am as busy as a bee can be, writing, knitting and setting up the little man's play room, I wanted to share some links for all of you to enjoy.
The Roasted Heirloom Cauliflower and Chestnut Soup from Roost looks so comforting and delicious.
My obsession with cowl patterns from Purl Soho continues. The Garter Gaiter is divine.
I just heard about this book, "The Testament of Mary" by Colm Toibin and am intrigued to no end. Will have to add to my 'must read" list.
And this little fabulous ditty out of the UK, Pretty Nostalgic. A magazine that celebrates the "vintage, traditional and sustainable ways of living." Right up my alley.
Toques From Underground and excellent and fascinating article about underground supperclubs in The New Yorker.
Here is a stunning Craftsman Renovated home for sale in Bellevue, WA via Hooked on Houses.
I don't knit gloves or mittens, but these Podster Gloves


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…
