Christmas Record Love Cards

12 December, 2011

These are the Holiday cards I drew, collaged and got printed this year: Tonight, I’m going to put on a Christmas movie and sit down and actually write mine out to get in the mail tomorrow. (Late start as usual. So what else is new?) If you want to buy some, they are also up […]

A visit to Provincetown…

3 December, 2011

The first weekend of November we had a mini-roadtrip to the Cape with our friend Kate. I have been meaning to write about it, here I am in December just getting around to sitting down and collecting my thoughts. It was only a short weekend and only a couple hours from our house, but it […]

a thankful list. november 29, 2011

29 November, 2011

November has been wonderful to me.  I had wanted to write this list last week before Thanksgiving, but here I am already looking at Christmas lights. So before I get all swept up in December, I figured I should reflect a bit before moving on. – The first Thanksgiving in years that actually felt like […]

David Yates to direct a “Doctor Who” MOVIE?

14 November, 2011

Just caught this on /film: This has been a long time coming. Doctor Who, the BBC sci-fi series that has run for decades starting in 1963, with a few breaks here and there, will finally hit the big screen after several years of rumors about a new film being in development. The BBC has enlisted […]

Holy Crap! Oh Man! It’s the Hunger Games Trailer!

14 November, 2011

I will probably need to watch this a few hundred times more today to be sure, but I’d say that they pretty much nailed it. I love everything about this. It nearly made me cry.

Citrus Maxima!

14 November, 2011

Sounds like a Harry Potter spell to enlarge oranges and lemons, right? It is actually the latin name for the pomelo. I’m am currently obsessed with the pomelo.  It tastes like a milder and sweeter grapefruit, but gigantic. Melon-sized. I discovered it last winter and was really sad in the spring when it was out […]

My Sorrow, when she’s here with me, Thinks these dark days of autumn rain Are beautiful as days can be; She loves the bare, the withered tree; She walked the sodden pasture lane. – Robert Frost, My November Guest I’m continuing my love affair with Fall and all things cozy that come from chillier weather.  […]

A Mid-Autumn Photoshoot

3 November, 2011

This past weekend, I headed out to one of my favorite little beaches with three of my favorite ladies and we took lots of pictures (really quickly because, man it was cold and windy!) for Anchor Tag! There are some great new cozy knits up for sale in the shop now and believe me when […]

the list of october 11, 2011

11 October, 2011

– I decided October is my favorite month. (Don’t tell June.) – Craving oatmeal for breakfast and soup for all other meals. – Fall is the best time for beachwalking, so that’s where I want to be every evening. – Although we went up to Vermont two weeks ago, and I’m more than a little […]

On goals, rewards and reminders.

10 October, 2011

A while ago, inspired by reading blogs by people training to be yoga instructors and a good friend who started training to run a marathon, I decided I was going to commit to practicing yoga every day. The health effects and brain effects of this decision were immediate and compounding, and yet, I didn’t stick […]

Review: “How To Be a Lesbian in 10 Days or Less”

27 September, 2011

The first thing that struck me about this compact, yet ambitious solo performance show was how nicely it teeters on the edge between camp and sincerity. Writer and performer Leigh Hendrix moves between characters effortlessly. An intense motivational speaker, an awkwardly wavering performance artist and an earnest young lesbian, coming to terms with coming out […]

Seven Questions with Theatre Artist and Professional Lesbian, Leigh Hendrix

17 September, 2011

The hilarious and ambitiously-named solo show How To Be a Lesbian in 10 Days or Less opens next week. Hot ticket writer/performer Leigh Hendrix dishes about identity + gender in theater, the artsy lovefest that is Providence, RI and song selection for Karaoke. So I did my homework for this Q + A – I […]

Fall Style

13 September, 2011

  Fall Outfit #1 by listofnow I’ve recently discovered Polyvore. I’m having all kinds of fun making outfits out of clothes and accessories that I can’t actually afford, but it’s actually really inspiring. My Fall “collection” is grunge-inspired, but mashed up with natural and classic fabrics. And of course, pile on the scarves, knit hats, […]

things that happened this week

9 September, 2011

My brother Dan was in town. I haven’t seen him in a long time since he lives on the other side of the country. It was great. For this occasion, a bunch of people came over my house to hang out. I made my popular spinach artichoke dip (came out well) and tried to make […]

“They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?”

3 September, 2011

The trailer for Sydney Pollack’s They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? (1969) I watched this today. It is an excellent film, but also completely devastating. It’s about desperate people, during the Great Depression, competing in a dance marathon for prize money, who increasingly become (or realize that they’ve been set up as) performers in a show […]

a hurricane + the house of nerd.

28 August, 2011

We lost all power for only about 4 hours today. Then it all came back on for an hour or so before half the house went out again. The half with the fridge and the running water is out. And the networking panel that our internet modem and wireless router is plugged into. Guess what […]

I got this. A list of mild hurricane preparedness.

27 August, 2011

In local news I keep seeing people throwing the word “preparedness” around. I didn’t think that was even a word. And if it is, how does it differ from “preparation”? Maybe “preparation” is what you do and “preparedness” is a state of being? No matter.  I’m rocking the prepwhateverness for this hurricane! Because I live […]
