my favorite murder.

every day at the same time, a huge murder of crows descends upon Park Ave. they rest in the trees and on the power lines for a while, and then they are off to the next destination. i love the routine of it and think they are just beautiful.

very much enjoyed the diversity of people voting at the franklin library today. i also enjoyed the diversity of people at the neighborhood liquor store, which was definitely more crowded than the library. but my favorite part of the day was driving through my neighborhood, seeing people standing out in the streets, dancing and shouting, holding homemade Obama posters- magazine cut-outs, glitter, and all. i like it when it feels like we are all in this together.

educated, informed decision indeed.

the McCains were funny as hell on SNL... but, Mr. Obama's grandma just died. Decisions, decisions...

actually, nevermind. i'm voting for the avocado.

slightly embarrassed by the lingering popularity of Hard Rock Cafe t-shirts in the hometown

back in SC for a little visit, i decided to clean some of my things still lingering at Mom's house. i found my stash of Hard Rock Cafe t-shirts from the early 90's- remember when they were so cool? and now they're so not? anyway, i had amassed a nice little collection and kinda felt bad just tossing them into the Goodwill pile. so i threw a little ad up on Craigslist and.... oh my. the flurry of emails that followed! it was a basic "curb alert" type ad and people were literally begging me to hold the shirts for them until they got off work. the bag was gone from the driveway within the hour. so, if you've got some tees of your own to dispose of, you know where they're wanted...

hypothetical south mpls adventure

may or may not have locked myself out of our new house. with the dog. wearing matt's slippers. possibly carried Rocco a mile to the Prasada house, where Rocco promptly pooped on their rug- allegedly. perhaps frantically called our contractors, who were all out of town visiting their moms for Mother's Day, but one maybe left his phone at his house, which was answered by his roommate, who lives across the street from the Prasada house, who also worked on our home and knew where the contractor's key was. could have definitely borrowed a leash from the Prasada, snagged the key from the roommate, and shuffled back to our new home, still wearing Matt's slippers.

hypothetically, of course.
