Yup, I'm 33 and redyed my hair blue. In the back is a large poster I made of Brainscan zine art for a gallery show last year.
Friday night Theresa and I went up to the Riverhouse and James met us. We had a fire and talked late into the night. Saturday I came back to pick up Paul and Dan and Blue and Andy showed up while I was gone. Later Lisa, Marc, Thomas, and James showed up.
There was a jam session with acoustic giutar, acoustic bass, and ukulele on the back porch by the river.
more hippy stuff
Blue and I found two slugs and one was really big!
I took this photo and it came out blurry but I sort of think that fits the mood of the evening. This was before we lit the fire. I didn't take my camera out when we had a fire because even after drinking I knew it was a bad idea.
That night Paul and I had a bed inside but decided to sleep in a tent by the bonfire, which was pretty rad. Then, at about 6am, it started raining. When things in the tent started to get wet we decided to head inside for the rest of the sleepytime.
ok, so I don't have any pictures of the finished waffles but they were great! We put daiya cheese and chopped up bits of broccoli in some. The broccoli steamed perfectly! We also made some with soyrizo and daiya and they were tasty too!
Paul works at Voodoo Doughnuts and brought home two buckets of doughnuts for a friend. I woke up to two huge buckets of doughnuts on my porch. I thought I would share this with you. I'm not really a sweets peprson but I still find this ridiculous and awesome.
I turn 32 on Friday!
I’m sort of over celebrating my birthday too much. I think that Paul and I are going to go to Portobello vegan Trattoria Friday night. I’ll have to remember to leave room for a fancy vegan dessert too! maybe we’ll have to go on Thursday to avoid the crowds of Friday nights.
Paul wants to get me a nice set of kitchen knives. I have a knife block but after years of housemates a few of them have walked away and they weren’t that great to begin with. Paul wants to get me a fancy new set and I’m stoked! We were going to go knife shopping yesterday but he seemed to be glamoured by the muses as I found him in bed with several piles of lyrics, a guitar, notebooks, and his tape recorder. How can I complain? I’m the same way about zines when the muse finds me. I made some breakfast burritos and then went on with my day including a trip to the post office and a Portland Zine Symposium meeting.
I just gotta say that I LOVE everyone working on the sympsoium this year. There were only 4 of us at the meeting but everyone was great. Then I rode home with Blue and Doug. I really like riding bikes in packs of people. On my way downtown my bike odometer hit 100 miles since I got back from the UK and France. That makes about 4 1/2 miles a day since I have gotten back. That’s pretty good. I need to keep that up this summer. Last year I was too distracted to ride enough but 2009 has continued to rule as much as I expected so I should keep up with riding more.
Time for some coffee and then waking Paul up for knife shopping and maybe a picnic if the day stays nice. I also need to take more pictures of my yard since new things are blooming these days.
