If there is one person or more on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

Y HALO THAR LIKE HALF MY F-LIST

Hello! A few new people have friended me recently. Say hello. :)

 
elbales: (Merry-go-round)
So I fell on the sidewalk on Friday. I went from sun to shade and couldn't see for a moment, and I tripped over a block of the sidewalk that had been pushed upward by almost two inches. Skinned my knee and my elbow on the right side, and I came down on my purse (!!). Fortunately the tiny vial holding a perfume sample did not break, and nor did the very expensive glasses in their hard-sided case, though the case got fairly comprehensively crushed. My ultralight aluminum (?) business card holder is ruined, too. Fie.


In more cheerful news, we drove down the Peninsula to meet friends for a lovely Mexican dinner. On the way back to the freeway, as we were driving up one of the many winding roads to be found in Los Altos Hills, we talked about the homes in the area. "The houses out here are outrageously expensive. You have to be rich to live in one," I said.

"Pretty much," agreed Hardi. We came to a stop sign, where we met an oncoming car with a pizza delivery sign on its roof.

"See?" said Hardi, pointing. "Even the Domino's get delivered by Mercedes."

Reader, I LOL'd.


I have basil plants and more strawberries to pot up; my basil seedlings are not flourishing (*sads*) and the cats gnawed/dug up two of the previous six strawberry plants. Also I want to buy some flowering plants. Place needs color.

I've noticed a few new people friending me in the past weeks. Would you like to introduce yourselves? :)

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. I read your journals, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you for your interest in my words.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself? Any old thing at all, the more trivial and fascinating, the better. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...they enjoy piano tuning while blindfolded, and have a giant birthmark shaped like a Dachshund right between their shoulder blades."

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal and see what gems of knowledge appear.

Happy new year, my dears! May 2007 be kinder to us all.
elbales: (nap time)
It is chilly cold fucking cold outside. I took Hardi to BART this morning and it was 38°F in Colma. When I got back home it was 40°F outside. Forty. *whiiiine*

I may have to buy lined corduroy pants if the whole winter's going to be like this. Went looking for flannel PJs today and oh my god there are so many hideous pairs of pajamas out there. Like OMGSOHEINOUS. If this keeps up I will have to make some of my own.

Also. Will someone please explain the point of low rider flannel pajama pants?

Also I see a pair of pajamas made by Bedhead that are $139.95 and WTF? Do they get up before you and make the coffee?

Also also no I would not like a football team logo on my sleepwear kthxbuggeroff.

Also also also Emma they have some Dolce & Gabbana shoes at overstock.com. Hey, wow, a Tahari skirt suit for $41.


ZOMG I HAVE A HUGE CHRISTMAS CARD TRADE DEFICIT

I have to get my shit together and box up Stuff and send it out.

Emma, thank you for the lovely card and the lovely scarf! It's really soft. I've been using it every day since I got it. But what kind of yarn is it, and how do I take care of it?

And a card from AKK and also many cards from Ashley! Ashley, I've loved every one of the cards you sent. Thank you. ♥

Got to see Amy, made plans to go thrift store shopping later this month. Finished up an editing job. And my arms suck.

Um, really, that's all.
