Hi, The point (if there is a point) of this blog is to post liner notes and playlists of mix CDs originating from moi and hopefully fanning out into a chain of mix CDs. If you get a CD from me, make me and a friend one, and email me some liner notes and I'll post them. Then your friend should make you and someone else a mix CD etc etc. Maybe it will work PS If you want to be on my knit list, let me know what you want and I'll see what I can do!

Spring is Sprung

I think. Though maybe winter will come back again. This time of year makes me lament my doughy, pale blue genetic legacy, as my winterized limbs make their first eye-searing appearance in months. I wonder if thinking positively could make a difference. I'm not pasty, I'm alabaster. Doing six loads of laundry and housework and writing bills and writing software for 40 hours a week is a WORKOUT, baby.

I would totally wear these vintage Lame Giant dressies. They are so very cute. Though that olde worlde Lane Bryant model seems to carry all her weight in her cute little cherubic face and none on her kind of svelte looking body. She kind of looks like she should play basketball or something, a big strapping, athletic girl. Of course, those teensy hats and pincurls don't really help matters when you have a chubby face.

Is this canoe not one of the most awesome things you have ever seen? Can you imagine seeing all the fish swimming underneath you? Though in this neck of the woods, there's probably just yucky catfish and watersnakes.

I guess the impetus behind this was something similar, but it looks ghastly. You think they could do a computer simulation of walking over the Canyon in the Visitor Center or something, and it would be cheaper, safer and probably more impressive, rather than tearing up the actual Grand Canyon itself. That's just super tacky.

You know how they have all those Limited Edition candy bars, that make you feel like you ought to buy them before they disappear forever? How about these Limited Editions? Actually, I think vegetable Skittles could be kind of good, like V8 or something.

apparently you only need to have a positive attitude if you're a hotel maid.

kit kat malt liquor!

that canoe kinda freaks me out. i think i would not want to know about the bizarre underwater life mere inches beneath my butt. (insert doker joke here.)

I think I would have a fucking heart attack if I did that Grand Canyon skywalk thing. OMG!!

I think winter will come back a little, but maybe it won't get down to freezing again. Hooray for spring! Except for pollen!

The skywalk reminds me of that Toyota Tundra ad with the truck narrowly missing (a) running into moving steel wall and (b) falling into a canyon.

I had heard about the glass-bottomed thing on the news, but somehow got it into my head that they were offering glass-bottomed-boat tours of the river. D'oh.

I want to see the CN Tower in Toronto, which (I'm told) has a glass-bottomed lookout.

The canoe rocks! (But not too much, we hope. Har.)

The word 'insert' should never precede the word 'doker'. Ever.

I just fail to see how the feeling of petrifying vertigo adds anything to the view. No thank you!

BTW, after seeing those catalogs, I want to reclaim the word 'stout'. Sing it loud - I'm stout and I'm proud!

Didn't that canoe once belong to Wonder Woman?

I can imagine that canoe would stay clean for about ten seconds.

And I am much too much of a wuss to ever walk across the Grand Canyon!

Whereas I love chocolate with sea salt, I think ketchup would be gross with it (and way to be grown up, those guys used "Mike Hunt" as their candy spokesperson).
