For Sarah...

...the ginger diva.

And because I got a bag of uncrystallized candied ginger today at Trader Joe's (and have been trying to get an explanation of the uncrystallized vs. crystallied vs. candied).

You like me! You really like me!!

(In Strongbad voice): "Check me out. No seriously, check me out!"

Click on that, boys and girls, follow the steps to my ever-so-forgetful advisor's video and see...ME! Well, a little of me, the back of my head, and Becky and David.

Do you think I should get an agent?

hehehe

P.S. That was the 1725 house we're working on in the video. The guy filming was gone by the time I was a) perched two stories up on a rickety ladder, and b) crawing around on the roof.

I'm just wild about Harry...

*two small spoilers ahead, stop reading now or I can't be held responsible...*


Finally finished Harry 6. Loved it, nice and dark and totally intertwined with book 5 (which I didn't manage to read again and was struggling to remember small details). Very proud of myself for not crying through the last three chapters. And how much do I love Tonks and Lupin? Right on, my pink-haired sister, right on. I think the key word for this book was "snog", which is one of my most favoritest words. I had a really nice colored lipstick once that was called "snog", and I believe that is the main reason I bought it, aside from the color. Oh, and I think "R.A.B." is Regulus Black, Sirius's brother (which would be an interesting twist since he was a Death Eater...)

Now back to real work, which this week means spending way too much quality time with Gilbert Stuart paintings and Paul Revere prints. But for 12 bucks an hour, I can deal.

Food porn.

Anna's 31st Birthday Feast...



And my amazing strawberry cheese pie...


(The food wasn't as blurry as the pictures make it out to be...dunno why this is happening.)
