Cold lasagna

Better than no lasagna?

Bedside table

My side.

(That's a mini terrarium in the jar, btw.)

The problem with lipstick

Unfortunately, it's gross.

From the mailbag

This arrived on the desk of my colleague Hannah last week.

Thank you for your interest, Werner.

Are you aware that 1992 was ten years ago?


We woke up all excited to have a special eggs breakfast, only to discover we had just one egg.

Then we thought--pancakes! But discovered we had no butter.

So steel-cut oats it was, with toppings.

It was goo-oood!

Exquisite corpse

A slight misunderstanding.


Equals toasting almonds then sticking them in your favorite Bonne Maman jar.

(I was going to title this post "Almond Joy"--I hope you appreciate my restraint.)


Wuz here.

Do not sit on this bench.

It will endanger your butt.

I got a manicure

It's quite avant-garde.

It's just that easy

Apparently, the secret is dried anchovies.


A nasty raw bone.

I assume that after I left a dog ran up and snatched it (like in the comics).

You CAN crochet with the string they tie your box with at the donut shop.

You'll need to buy a lot of donuts, though, to make anything useful. (I see this as pure upside.)

’Tis the season

For finding awesome rolls of wrapping paper in the garbage.

Bring them home and save them for next year! (You'll only have to store them for eleven and a half months!!)

Oh hi

Dog in sombrero in trash can.

Some kind of blue bird

Was here.

At my friend's house

This guy lives there:

His name is Rahki and he will jump on your lap.

Cleaning out my half of the dresser (yes!), I came upon these:

Found many years ago, never worn. By the rules of cleaning-out-your-dresser, this means I should throw them away . . . But . . . I can't seem to.

Desire to be organized VS irrational attachment to objects: Which will triumph? Which SHOULD triumph??

The best solution would be a nice big house with room for many dressers o' drawers.

I did a bit of housecleaning and decided a few things needed to go back out on the street.


Someone likes Risk and nicely packaged rope!


Why did I do that?

Now I don't want my coffee anymore.


Triumph of the Greg

He found a fully charged commercial fire extinguisher on the street!


He took it to the studio in his backpack (they needed one there).

This looks good


Leftover lasagna sauce
Parmesan cheese
Broccoli rabe
Italian chicken and turkey sausage
Cayenne pepper

Just mix 'er all up and stick 'er in the oven!


Found tonight!

A handmade wooden dollhouse.

Cool, huh?

A car came by and lit it up with its headlights.

I didn't take it home, but now I regret it!! (This got an eye roll from Greg).

Breakfast of champions

Poached eggs are our new thing.

Friday night

Japanese-Canadian hotdogs!

Yeah, they were good.

Followed by:

I am not sure what came over us.

(Besides me being like, HOT DAWWWWWGS!! ICE CREAMMMMMMM!!!!!!)

Triple denim!

Can you even handle it?

(I really need a denim cap.)

We encountered a crystal ball/bell jar dealio on Nassau Avenue as we were hauling the laundry home.

Greg took this awesome pichure of it!

Quite the seething mass there in the background.

Morphological inquiry

Do pointsettias grow on pine trees?

My Christmas tablecloth says "Yes."

(Also note: Christmas books!)

Still life

With hot apple cider!

It's my favorite seasonal beverage (even though it WILL burn my mouth).


A drawing you made in high school might be hiding behind the door of your grandma's guest room.


But I am glad she likes it :)
