no pity for poopers


There is a mouse in my house! I need to get batteries for the trap. It's in the pantry but I've seen some poops in the kitchen too. Celia came over to help hang my piece. Got the studs marked, but the piece is not hung. Didn't do much else.


Went to Poulsbo to run a quick errand and saw a matinee of The Man From UNCLE. It was fun, some nice action sequences indeed with nice practical looking effects. Armie Hammer such is a hunkamunka. Back at home I worked a bit. Made some earrings. Dyed my hair too! Wait....no I think I saw the movie on Wednesday and did the earrings then and dyed my hair this day and worked from home and the internet was awful. Sorry, got all mixed up. My internet was bad so I didn't blog. Three days I guess is when I forget what happens on which day.


Ma and Pa came over to help chop wood and clear brush and hang my piece. A quick day visit. The piece is hung, but it isn't centered, so we'll need to get some Molly Screws to hang it properly. We three went to 101 Brewery for lunch. I got the avocado bacon burger and it was delicious. And a pint of pale ale. Nice little restaurant! I guess there is stuff to do out here.

I decided to go to Poulsbo to pick up my copy of Saladin Ahmed's Throne of the Crescent Moon. Picked up my book at Liberty Bay Books. Didn't know it was in soft cover! So that was a nice surprise. I was prepared to pay for hardback. I swung by the Marine Store and bought candy. Dropped off some books at the library. Filled up my tank at Safeway. Went to Central Market and got udon, Yakult, Lychee Calpico, green beans, apples, and some chocolate. I also tested some of the aromatherapy scents and splashed a bit too much eucalyptus on me but I guess you aren't supposed to use them like perfume??? Errr. The smell has faded by now. I don't wear deodorant or perfume really. I just try to smell like soap...or nothing.

Headed home. Reset the trap inside. The trap keeps getting set but there is no body to show for it. No compassion for mice.

Also hey, I've been doing this blog for eight years now, how 'bout that?

nap time

Blarg I didn't really accomplish much today. I think the medication is still giving me side effects. The pharmacist told me to not drink for three days after the course is finished, so it's probably still doing stuff. I've just got a serious case of the tireds now. I took a nap today for no reason, I was just super tired and needed to lay down. And my appetite is still shot.

Blarhhhg. Celia helped with hanging my print. Well she helped by bringing over the stud finder. I'll need hanging wire though, because the studs aren't evenly matched to where the hanging brackets on the frame are. Hopefully I'll be less tired tomorrow and will accomplish some work.

brides and print-judice


Went to pick up Bodi at a business lunch in Poulsbo. Got caught by the bridge by three cars. Oh well. Still got there at not the worst time. Met boss at Pho Y&N...T&N? The Pho place in Poulsbo. Got food. Talked projects. Traded off Bodi for another Bodi sitting weekend. Hurray!

Swung by Seabeck and got my mail and said hi to Ma and Pa. Dropped off my check. Went back home to relax, whoo!!

Sunday & Monday:

Got up too early and was very groggy. Gave Bodi a little walk and did my makeup and loaded up on coffee and snacks and picked up Celia and off we went! To Seabeck! I dropped off the car and Ma and Celia and Bodi and I got into the Prius and off we went to something Valley for Averie's bridal shower. Averie is getting married in two weeks, ahhh!!! So soon!

We were a bit late, but all was well. Bodi bonded well with the other dog Joey and he was well acquainted with Honeybear. I snacked and we played a game where we got points based on items in our purses, and a scatergories game, and a word jumble. I didn't win, but still fun! There was good company and Averie is looking fab. Not fully sure what I'll wear to the wedding. Maybe that black and blue spotty dress?

The party didn't go late, which was nice. Got back to Seabeck at a good hour. Put a new gasket on the seemingly leaky oil gasket. Drove back to Pulali and listened to the Britney Spears episode of Mystery Show. A very good episode indeed!

I was very tired upon return. I took a bit of a nap at 8, but it was readily apparent I needed a full sleep. So I just put on jammies and went to bed at 10, and was woken up at 2 and walked Bodi for a bathroom break, and dozed some more. Eventually rose at 9ish. Had breakfast. Cleaned house. Listened to more Mystery Show episodes.

Boss was picking Bodi up this time, and delivering a print. She was stuck in construction, so had a long ride over. We took a walk through the woods, as is nice to do after a long drive, and moved the print upstairs to where I had cleared out space for it. It just fits! With about 4 inches of room to spare. The frame has plexi instead of glass, so it isn't super heavy, which is nice if I decide to move it (I don't think I will though, I like it where it is). It's an artist proof, so I see a few little misalignments, but that is part of its charm. It's still an absolutely beautiful print.

Yuji Hiratsuka's Crab Dancers. Tomorrow Celia will help me hang it properly.

So You Think You Can Dance was fun.
