Days 140-152 of Project 365: Spring chaos.

Hello again, patient Project 365 friends! The end of May zipped so quickly that I fell far behind with these posts. I kept snapping every day, though, so I have something to show for my long absence.

Down the leftmost column:

  • a mass of shopping carts at IKEA;
  • fun blurbs that Lonesome's Pizza tucks inside their pizza boxes;
  • my Second Life avatar playing with a virtual pet cat;
  • a non-virtual kitten that I got to snuggle thanks to new friends;
  • my kombucha-in-progress.

Down the middle column:

  • a couple of ducks who were strolling across my front yard when Courtney dropped me off at home;
  • a surreptitious snap from an evening of music videos aired on MTV in the year 1986 as part of an event called Rerun Theater at the Hollywood (but I dearly wish I had taken a better pic because that frame looks vaguely naughty);
  • a particularly artful and delicious sushi roll at Yama;
  • homemade cashew cheese, which tastes much better than it sounds.

And down the right column:

  • a bevy of WordPress stickers at Saturday's WP birthday picnic in Laurelhurst Park;
  • my Midori Traveler's Notebook across from Alberto's laptop during our Sunday coworking session at Heart;
  • my wonderful Zen cat savoring the sunshine;
  • a ladybird atop one of the backyard grape leaves.

Writing from: my study, currently in chaos as I am reviewing every single book I own in order to decide which ones I will keep. Traumatic. Listening to: episodes of “30 Rock” in the background for comic relief.

For the photo a day meme: a photo of a night you loved.

I am avoiding the obvious choice of my wedding, because you already know how much I loved that night. What you don’t already know is how much I loved the night that Hawk treated me to my first omakase at Zushi Puzzle. We ate so much sushi and drank so much sake and talked and laughed and Roger served me my first uni (sea urchin) and it blew my mind. I dream about that uni. Behold:

my first uni

Click through if you want the specifics of how Roger prepared it. That night at Zushi Puzzle was one of the best nights of my life. And now I am hungry.

I acknowledge that I live and work on stolen Cowlitz, Clackamas, Atfalati, and Kalapuya land.
I give respect and reverence to those who came before me.
