I need to go crochet some granny squares. My niece is going to be like 30 before I finish the blanket I started for her. And who wants a pink tiny blanket when they're 30? No one. That's who.
So I saw my pulmonologist today, and everything seems to be about the same as it was a year ago in the ol' ct-scan department, so that's good. Also, my pulmonologist just read the book I'm currently reading, Water For Elephants, and we had a nice little discussion about that which obviously drifted to Carnivale and Deadwood. How rad is it that my pulmonologist likes Deadwood? He hadn't ever seen Carnivale, so I told him to check it out. After he reminded me that smoking is bad for you. Actually he didn't do that. But I'm sure he would of if I had been like, "Hey, so if my lungs are ok, can I start smoking again?"
Tacos yum yum.

I'm feeling a little anxiety today. I feel like if I could just organize something I would feel better. Line up everything on my desk. Put the blue and black ink pens into two seperate locations. Stuff like that.
That's pretty nuts, isn't it?

Thanks for continually amazing me with your sweet-ass songs. I can't get enough. I am only bummed that I was in a frugal mood when your tickets went on sale for your Washington state show, and thus did not purchase any. It makes me heartbroken while listening to All I Need to think that I will not get to see you performing it live.
Until next time, yours sincerely,

Saturday was a pretty fun day. Amanda, Trista and I went into Portland, met up with a few of Trista's other friends and had a bachelorette party for Trista.
First it was dinner at a sushi place in the Pearl, on like 10th and Johnson (I forget what it's called). It was really delicious. I had a spicy tuna/avocado roll, salmon nigiri, and a special roll, I forget the name, but it was soo good, avocado, tuna, crab, mango wrapped in cucumber. I could have done without the crab, probably one of my least favorite sushi fillers, but it was still good. I love mango in a roll!
After dinner we went to Harvey's comedy club, where we saw two funny comedians, and then it was down to Bar XV, where I ran into my cousin Jeff who I haven't seen in like two years. The place was packed because of brewfest, so we scrambled to find a booth and drinks and dancing and drinking ensued. It was a pretty rowdy night complete with this dumb drunk dude spilling water all over me (he is so lucky he missed my camera).
We couldn't decide on another location, so we headed back to the car around midnight only to find it seconds away from getting towed. Apparently we had parked on a street in which parking wasn't allowed between the hours of 11pm-5am. Weird. Luckily the officer took pity on us poor country bumpkins and let us go with a warning.
After that, we were feeling a bit famished, so we headed to Sharis (which was near the hotel we were staying at) and had orange juice and breakfast, and then back to the hotel where we crashed 5 people into a room for 2, it was cosy to say the least. All in all it was a successful evening and lots of fun.
Check out the photo set here.

I am really starting to get more and more into Adobe Illustrator. It can do so many rad things! I love it. When you start to learn how to use it properly it really helps the creative juices flow. I see things, websites, ads, magazines, etc. that I think, hm, I wonder if I could do that, and slowly my skills are building. Anyway, exciting. And pretty. :)

This is the souped up (is that how you spell souped? Whatev.) version of a photo I took of Mark's roommate's cat. Rad kitty. I used this texture that I found on flickr and did a little overlay action, this and that, and pow! Take a look at vintage kitty. So cute. :)

Yesterday I stopped into this store that is mostly for quilting, but I noticed they had a sign that said yarn, so I thought, what the hey, lets go in and check it out. Glad I did, they were getting rid of their yarn section and it was all 75% off! I was stoked. I spent like 20 bucks, and got a bunch of really nice yarns, like this one, which is a hand dyed wool from Italy. Boo yeah. Its so colorful and pretty. I can't wait to make something beautiful out of it. :)
