things i like today...

listening to this song: e.p. hall, "emperor's note." and watching this video. the paper trees!

finding some awesome pictures of me from 5+ years ago and thinking i looked so incredibly different back then.
found a bunch of old photos! 2004 or so.

thinking it's thundering out - when really they're just tearing down the old school across from my house.
100624. fairview elementary goes bye bye.

receiving this guy for ben! (purchased from the brilliant daniellorama).
100624. for the munchkin's first birhday - a hedgehog!

things that make me happy today...

this song: band of horses, "i go to the barn because i like the."

my nephew.


and modeling his super rad knitted cotton overalls! (looks like the kid has some growing to do. get on that, kid). i'm planning a trip to seattle in august so i can hang with this little bumblebee before he is no longer a babe.
this kid kills me.

you can vote however you like...

okay, so i've not posted here in a while because, well, i've been a little uninspired. i have been knitting, yes. i have decidedly been making things. i just don't much feel like talking about them. but there are things i like on the interwebs, and so i'm going to share those instead. deal? deal.

danny macaskill insane bike tricks from 2009, somewhere in edinburgh.

this will never fail to make me laugh. a lot.

and i would totally have thom yorke's little alien babies. cover of joy division's "ceremony." did you know that not only did mt. st. helens erupt on my first birthday, but the lead singer of joy division killed himself on my first birthday?

okay, and i guess i'll do a massive photo log of everything i've finished from february until now, knitting-wise.
