29 Mar

While South by Southwest was happening downtown, so was this.

I’ve had a lot of thoughts running around my head  (about pants, star wars, the glory of the humble potato) and a lot of images on my SD card (it is nesting time around here) so my blogs going to be way more active than usual. I’m going to start with the pictures I wanted to upload two weeks ago.

I just wanted to tell this story

This is a monster doll I knitted. It is only tangentially related.

This is a monster doll I knitted. It is only tangentially related.



When I was three, I liked two things: Whitney Houston and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  I loved two things: My family and Disney’s The Little Mermaid.  None of this has changed. In my life, I have worn out two VHS tapes of The Little Mermaid. I always skipped past “Fathoms Below” to the scene where Ariel and Flounder are scavenging human things, a practice that I will continue to my dying day because nobody cares about you and your stupid human problems, Eric. I loved Ariel, I loved how she collected junk and I loved how she had a tail and adventures and a loving family but still didn’t feel normal, still wanted to have a body that made more sense to her. Like Me. I loved Ariel but I secretly loved Ursula more.  Ursula was a freaky monster who lived in a cave and was a powerful witch who didn’t care that she was alone and weird because she knew how cool she was.


Anyways, that is not the story I wanted to tell.  This is the story I wanted to tell:  When I was three, I went to the swimming pool with my mom, my brother, my mawmaw and papa, and a few uncles. We went to the pool all the time. It’s hot in Florida. My brother was a baby and my mother had to hold him while she swam.

Leftover Pictures from February

1.  The Austin marathon came by our house




A Quick Note On Fat Squirrel:

In September, my mom put four pumpkins on our steps, as she does every Fall. I usually bring in the pumpkins one by one to cook and eat. Around the beginning of October, we noticed that one of the pumpkins had been pecked at a little bit. We assumed birds. Over time, more and more of the pumpkin disappeared: The top was removed, the insides hollowed out. My mom even added some of those plastic Halloween pumpkin eyes to it, in an effort to scare away the little thieves. Soon after, I found the eyes discarded on the lawn and even more of the pumpkin was gone. Eventually my mom caught a squirrel eating away at the pumpkin.

Now, it is possible that a small army of neighborhood squirrels was destroying the pumpkin, that birds and feral cats and little rodents might have helped as well. BUT, at the same time this guy right here showed up in our back yard. He looks like he ate another squirrel. We have seen tree branches break under his weight. This is a squirrel that very well could have eaten an entire medium sized pumpkin on is own.

3. Not From February, but I saw a woodpecker this morning.

I misnamed the file, lol

The New Doctor

“Those involved with the show [Doctor Who] are tight-lipped of possible successors as Matt echoed, ‘I just want to see the best actor in the role, whether that be man, woman, otter.’”
