The Move

If you're wondering how the move is going...

My house is so packed with wall-to-wall boxes with little tiny pathways, that if you lifted the roof off this joint, I'd look like a rat continually looking for the proverbial cheese.

10 days (or, as I see it, that's nearly two weeks) without television. (Cable was set up and "on," but the previous renters had ripped out the access points when they put in satellite so we had to schedule another appointment for that.)

I am writing all this from my perch: a netbook set on the cat's scratching post.

Happy birthday week to me?

Hey, Listen Up! I'm Moving

As in I am physically moving, so please don't panic if the blog sits still for awhile. (And at that link you can find out how to motivate me to get the home office up and running -- and myself posting -- more rapidly.)

Dreamy Carole Lombard

This is one of these images that messes with my mind... Carole lays dreaming, I begin to dream of being the woman in the photo, and at some point, I feel she & I reach across time and are one in the dream. Maybe I just need more caffeine... But I'm not going to have any. I don't want to stop the feeling.

Another Truth About Snow White

Just one of the incredible Enchanted Dolls by Marina Bychkova, this is Snow White & her Prince:

I can’t help but wonder what kind of a man in his right mind would be inclined to kiss a miraculously well preserved corpse of a beautiful female after finding it in glass coffin in the middle of the forest. It’s rather disturbing if you really think about it. There is only one logical explanation for this situation. He is a Necrophile.

Note the delicate bruising about her throat.

Is It Hot In Here, Or Is It Just Me?

If I weren't so humble, I'd think I was pretty hot stuff for this awesome news!
