vehicle, tne, and the charm
posted by soe 11:25 pm

Three beautiful things from my week past:

1. Posey is particularly fond of when I leave my Mary Janes lying out. She likes to put her front paws in one and push it around the Burrow like she’s driving a bumper car.

2. In college, the weekend party scene would kick off with what were called TNE’s — Thursday Night Events. Tonight, we reprised that tradition by heading out to watch The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus with Michael and Julia. The movie was a clever fairy tale of a story (a street performer tries to figure out a way of a deal he made with the devil many years earlier with the help of his troupe of outcasts) with memorable performances by Heath Ledger (in his final role), Christopher Plummer (Captain Von Trapp from The Sound of Music), and Tom Waits (who didn’t sing once). I’d recommend seeing it if it’s in a theater nearby.

3. I am knitting with soft green yarn. My yarn and the pattern’s were different, which meant that it took three tries before I was happy with how my project was progressing.

What’s been beautiful in your world this week?

winter blah cure?

Rudi has a school happy hour/reunion in New York City this weekend, so we’re heading up for the day on Saturday.

Sometimes a change of pace and/or scenery is all that’s needed to combat the blahs, so I’m optimistic that despite getting up crazy early and returning at an ungodly late hour it’ll break me out of my rut. Could be that a whirlwind bus trip is precisely what the doctor ordered…

If not, Ms. Crankypants will be in residence on Sunday. I’ll ask her not to post if she decides to stop by.
