Here are some new pillows I’ve been working on. I’m going to be selling on consignment at In Other Words in Portland, Oregon. I’m pretty excited about it! The first one is Henry Miller Magic cat with red stripes. The second one is Judy the Utie(rus) with minis on the back. The third one is a pillow of Angelica Kauffman and Mary Moser having tea.

“Devil in the Details: Scenes From an Obsessive Girlhood” by Jennifer Traig will tickle your inner OCD child if you have one. I’m not a full blown OCD person, but I can relate to some of what Traig writes about, and she shows us with much wit what a full blown disorder is like. It is great that she has such a wonderful sense of humor about a disorder that is so crippling to her and so many millions of people like her. For those who don’t understand Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, this gives a good glimpse into a life that is severely train-wrecked by it. I give this four stars instead of five, because I found the ending a bit weak compared to the rest of the book that kept me enthralled. My only unanswered question is: am I the only one who noticed that the candies on the cover of the book aren’t COMPLETELY straight???!!! haha. (  )

Okay, boys and girls.

Basically, this term has been coined in protest to Rick Warren, a cowering homophobe, having been invited to speak at the presidential inauguration. For more background on the coinage of this term, see this link and scroll to the bottom.

I hope that you will help by making this term popular! Enjoy! :) hehe

Okay. It is time for me to admit that I just have no control over my senses, pocketbook or body when it comes to cute things. I am beholden to all things cute. If there was a field of landmines between me and something really really cute I would probably make a go for walking through the field of landmines to get the cute thing…well, especially if it was one of my cats!

Okay, I’ve been reading The Slog a lot lately. If you don’t know The Slog is the public blog for The Stranger. The Stranger is an alternative-type newspaper in Seattle. Now The Stranger has offshoots like The Portland Mercury. I don’t know who owns what or whatever, so you can google that if you are interested. I started reading The Stranger in 1992 I guess, when I moved up to Seattle. I’m pretty sure

Okay, well, I’m done feeling blue for now. I think I was probably sleeping too much. So now I’ve been awake for almost 24 hours and I’m feeling pretty good. PLUS I got a boat load of Hello Kitty items in the mail today that I had ordered from Sanrio.com when I was feeling a bit blue. I didn’t even care how much money I spent on Hello Kitty stuff, because I was having Hello Kitty withdrawls!
