Waterfire!

I went to Providence, RI last night to hang out with some friends and go swing dancing at Waterfire. It was great amounts of fun.

I posted a little more about it, with a couple pics, over at my other blog.

There's also a bunch more pics up on my flickr page.

Self Portraits Past

I finally had a day off (only 29 days without a break... But 30 would have just been crazy)And spring is here, the weather was lovely, and a pile of baby robins were crowding their nest in the bush across from my driveway. So I took some pics.Many more photos if you click through the pic and scroll through my stream forward or backwards.


Happy Spring everyone!

Happy Easter, Passover, Rite-of-Sping-of-your-choice folks.

I blogged some pics of the pretty little cherry tree that Jeff planted for me last year. It bloomed really early with all our lack-of-winter around here this year.

my new car!, originally uploaded by mickeyjohnson.

I have found my next Forester. She's a 2005 XS model and I put a deposit down on her today.

In an amazing act of generousity, my papa has given me the money to pay for the whole cost above what my insurance payout is from the totalling of my old one. I cannot say thanks enough to him for helping me in this way. I was SO unhappy about having to go back to a car payment after so many years without one and this will make the experience of owning a new(er) car even better.

Planet in a Pail

 I've updated my blogger blog again... That's twice in one week!  Don't worry, this probably won't become a habit.

You can read all about my odd job task of making back paint.  It made me feel like Jackson Pollack.  

Confused?  Don't worry.  All is explained:  http://emjayimagination.blogspot.com/2011/08/planet-in-pail.html

Truffle Making FAIL

Okay, so this wasn't a total fail since the truffles did end up tasting good. But they looked a lot more like dog poop balls, which to me is a pretty majoy FAIL in candy making.

I tell the whole story with pics over on my blogger blog:
