The gorilla

We had people over for pumpkin carving this weekend and Rachel brought fake tattoos, so I put a gorilla tattoo on my fist and began trying to popularize my new slogan: “You mess with me? You get the gorilla.” I only had a few days before the tattoo wore off so I said it at … Continue reading »

Moltar! Twenty!

This weekend seven of us went to Angel Island to celebrate the lump of birthdays that occur in October and early November (Erica, Jacob, me, Jason). As if I had not grown up in the Bay Area or had not lived in San Francisco for nearly a decade, I chose to wear only a tank … Continue reading »

Skillz

While we were on the houseboat this year, Gene taught me to embroider:                                 ┬áThis is the only new skill I learned in 2012, which sounds sad now that I come to write it out, but I actually feel pretty … Continue reading »

Yard photos

I am still startled by how much I love our newly landscaped backyard. I spend so much time out there: if it’s not absolutely freezing, I’m out there pretty much whenever the sun is shining, even if I’m wrapped up in four layers. Here’s the yard about a year before the remodel. This isn’t an … Continue reading »

Stew

There are wild foxes roaming the streets of London! We saw three of them and each time I was so excited that I did a little fox-sighting dance. “Do you get this excited when you see raccoons in Alameda?” Thomas asked somewhere after the second dance. “No,” I said. “Raccoons are vermin.

Europe Fail

Since I cannot go to Paris at present, yesterday I decided to go to San Francisco and pretend I was somewhere else. (Excuse my photo effects, please. I’m experimenting with an Android app called Vignette and possibly going a little overboard with it. But it’s so fun!) I got up early (for me) and took … Continue reading »

Weirdo

Kris: “I need a close-up photo of my face for my writing website. But I need one where I’m not wearing some kind of costume or making a strange expression.” Gene: “Has that ever happened?” Kris: “Sigh.”                                     … Continue reading »

Triclops princess

This weekend we had a pumpkin-carving party. Let me first explain that I go through this funny thing every autumn. I am a sun-worshipper — the more summery goodness, the better, as far as I’m concerned. Except around October, when I start imagining how great it will be to wear rust-colored sweaters and tall boots … Continue reading »
