Hey look! Knitting!

Saturday, April 30th, 2005

Be it ever so minute, it’s progress. Our sweater so far: This is the completed torso of the Café Bastille Cables sweater with an added couple of inches of ribbing. I don’t think ribbing looks too out of place. And Thomas just tried it on and it fits very well. Woo-hoo, let’s hear it for […]

It’s a secret society. Shhhh.

Thursday, April 28th, 2005

A while ago I was on a bike ride with Kelly and Thomas and I happened to stop to ask someone for some directions. There was this couple pulled over on the side of the road and I coasted up to them when I suddenly realized that I recognized the woman. I asked her if […]

Sweet Potato Queen Photos

Wednesday, April 27th, 2005

I got my mom to send me a couple of pictures from the big event. Here’s one of some of the queens getting down on the patio at the Hunt Store: And here’s the world-renowned band: I will try to get some pictures of the parade itself and the frightening contraption on which some of […]

The Sweet Potato Queens are Rockin’

Tuesday, April 26th, 2005

So, this weekend… Several years ago, a woman named Jill Conner Browne wrote a book called The Sweet Potato Queens’ Book of Love. I haven’t read it myself, but I can tell you that it has left its mark in the small town of Hunt, TX. On Saturday evening, we all got dressed. Dan (my […]

Oh Frabjous Joy!

Friday, April 22nd, 2005

I have found my coffee cup! It’s a tallish stoneware cup that was thrown by Ryan McCurlyMcKerley (thanks, Eris), my ceramics teacher from years ago. It’s got a dark bluish metallic glaze on it. I lost it right after we moved to our new offices back in December. I haven’t seen it since late December/early […]

Chok-LIT!!!!

Thursday, April 21st, 2005

I am so cranked on chocolate and coffee right now, it’s not even funny. Don’t worry, I shot up with the good ol’ Humalog first. It’s just that my sleep patterns have been really bad lately. Every time I wake up early, I either clean the kitchen or bake something. This morning I fell asleep […]

Okay, the world doesn’t suck.

Sunday, April 17th, 2005

I was just down at the Taste of New Orleans Jazz Festival. It’s put on the by San Antonio Zulu Association each year as part of Fiesta. Since I’ve known about it, my stepdad’s band has played in it. So this morning, after doing another bike ride with the other David from work, I strapped […]

Bad day

Friday, April 15th, 2005

I have a personal flaw which I will one day have to overcome. I get extremely angry extremely fast with bad bartenders. I’m not sure why. I went to the opening of Medusa tonight after an announcement was sent to one of my company’s mailing lists. I got there around nine and joined some co-workers […]

Dishes best served cold

Wednesday, April 13th, 2005

Revenge, like chocolate mint brownies, is a dish best served cold. It is very, very cold in a cube farm. But in the end of forewent (is that a word?) the revenge thingy and just made some non-bowel assaulting brownies. And they were goooood. It’s always nice when you take a pan full of baked […]

Well, good morning sunshine.

It’s funny how things build up. A small series of apparently disconnected events can suddenly align to form a chain of events that directly impacts you. Case in point: someone someplace in Europe suddenly notices that their server has had a problem, and they need to restore from a backup. Lo and behold, the local […]
