What I fondly imagine our house looks like: What our house really looks like: Fondly imagine: Real: Fond: Real: Good thing my eyeballs are so selective.
It is a funny thing, but sometimes when I look at the pictures of the house from when we first toured it, I get more excited about it than I get by actually living in it. Hardwood floors! Stained glass! A swimming pool! Good lord, I think to myself, those people are lucky. Speaking of … Continue reading
At our New Year’s Eve party we discovered that the Harry Potter closet under the stairs works as a pretty good photo booth. Here you see me with some supermodels, Merrit (center) and Zina (right). I was calling out motivations all through (“coy!” “angry!” “dead!” “sexy!”), which Merrit and I made kind of half-assed attempts … Continue reading
In case you don’t have the patience to slog through all twelve zillion pictures from our wedding day photobooth, Gene and I made a little movie out of them. (You can also see them in photostrip form here.) The song is “I Hate Camera” by The Bird and the Bee. Enjoy!
Midnight in Salt Lake City. Gene realized he needed his phone charger from the car and went out for it. When he got back in, he said “You need to come see this.” Incidentally: Salt Lake City? Not what you’d expect. Sure, they’ve got the giant Mormon temple compound at Temple Square, with dozens of … Continue reading
We toured the Deschutes Brewery in Bend and spent two nights camping in Eastern Oregon. I won’t get into those, because we were perfectly happy and it’s impossible to be interesting about perfect happiness. (Unless you are Dorothy L. Sayers and writing Busman’s Honeymoon. But I am no Sayers.) We drove across Idaho, where we … Continue reading
We drove to Crater Lake and arrived around dinner time — and not just for us. The area was swarming with more mosquitoes than I’ve ever seen in my life. (We found out later this is because the valley is basically a lake with a thin layer of soil on top. There is a 14-inch … Continue reading
Our first night camping was spent in Jedediah Smith campground, where a cat-burglar bear had apparently been wreaking havoc. We were warned in no uncertain terms never to leave any food or scented lotion or anything outside the bear box, not even in the trunk of the car. That’s the bear box off to the … Continue reading
You can find them here. Some of my favorite moments: 1. Any time an actor gets in the booth. (I’m lookin’ at you, Dan, Ash, Mel and Sean.) 2. The moment when our niece Allegra realizes she can do different poses in different pictures. 3. The moment when my brother-in-law Geoff gets in and immediately … Continue reading
Our first day of the honeymoon saw the introduction of our trip-long theme of eating only at breweries. We started at Bear Republic Brewery in Healdsburg. All the locals on the restaurant patio and passing by outside seemed to know each other, which made me believe we’d discovered the fabled Small Town America. (This conviction … Continue reading
