little miss messy hair


new year, new place

i've been trying to move this blog for ages. Should have been simple enough, if it weren't for the lack of free-time as of late. But, with the darkroom/office almost done, it has happened. I can now be found at:

Wordpress 2 made importing my blogger posts a breeze, much easier than Wordpress 1.x. MUCH easier! I am still working on a coupple of things (calendar for archives needs to be made active and i still have 270 some odd posts to categorize, header image loads slower than i'd like), but that will always be the case.

Please come visit me! I have categories now, it's really nice, really.


a holiday surprise

thuy sent a fabulous care package last week, which promptly went under the christmas plant and then not-so-promptly opened to reveal:


check out that gorgeous yarn! i do not think i am knit-worthy, honestly, but i'll do my best. Any suggestions?

Also in the package was a "cute mini case"

kawaii mini kasu

convenient for your desk or backpack,!
(but perhaps only if you are an angel with a huge, heat-shaped head)

Thank you so much thuy! We dined on miso last night!

the holiday weekend

i'll admit, i disappoint most people: I do not decorate every inch of the house for the christmas holiday, this year i didn't even do holiday baking (which really just hurts me, since only a small percentage of the treats actually make it out the door when i do bake anyway). I don't send out cards to every person i know (which is a disappointment i need to remedy), nor do i sing christmas carols non-stop from the beginning of advent on. Despite what people want me to be, given my name, i am not into christmas all that much. I love picking out gifts for people, though, and christmas is an excellent excuse for that.

op thought it wasn't too bad a gift (i think)

Other than that, there is one holiday tradition that i really enjoy, one that my family has not done in a number of years but that sop and i revived this year:

may you enjoy the time you have with friends and loved ones

and may you not do too many face plants in 2006!
