October 2007. Baltimore, Maryland. The gang and I as a pumpkin patch.

The last seven days have been pretty amazing. An extremely good-looking guy took me out to dinner and I ate like a queen. I saw Gillian Welch at The Beacon Theatre, had brunch at The Northern Spy, dinner at Balthazar (disappointing), watched a screening of My Week with Marilyn and The Artist, had Indian food accompanied by a sitar and saw The Civil Wars at the Town Hall.

I love how busy I am, but with this busyness comes sacrifices. In Baltimore, I had a lot of time to cook, bake, draw, paint, and be festive when holidays came around. Suddenly, it's Halloween and all I have done is set out my ghost bowl and filled it with candy corn. No pumpkin carving, no pumpkin-baking, no dressing up... nothing. I haven't even been able to delve into soup season (butternut squash & sweet potato soup, my brother's favorite vegetable soup, leek & potato soup, chili.. etc.). I have to find that balance, but it's hard when you're shuttling between two places, none of which feel like Home.

Have a fun Halloweekend.

Previously: Jack-o-Lantern sugar cookies, pumpkin pie, vegan pumpkin cupcakes.

One of my favorite videos in a long time. Mostly because it exudes Michael (Jackson).

October 2011. New York, New York.

I was walking up 6th Avenue the other day, running an errand for my boss. I got to my destination and forgot something important and had to walk the five blocks back to the office. I was so annoyed and became instantly pouty. Halfway back to the office, I realized that I was getting angry about taking a break from the computer and walking in the great fall weather, all the while getting paid for it. I'm so incredibly lucky to work where I work, let alone have a job. I have no reason to complain about my life, even if I have something to complain about.

You can think what you want about Moammar Gadhafi but that video of him being captured makes me sick to my stomach. Maybe I am being too sympathetic, but no one deserves to have their most vulnerable and humiliating state blasted all over the world. I know he's done some awful things and has ruined families etc, but.. that video is sad. He touches his head and looks at his fingers to see if he's bleeding as he is being tugged in every direction. It's barbaric. I believe in war but I don't believe in that. I don't know, I guess war is barbaric though.

I don't know.
