January 14: Once was Tillie's

Had some good times here. Tillie’s was one of those diners where you could get the skillet breakfast in a big flippin’ skillet; they had a stack of them in the kitchen. Faded peach booths, strawberry waffles with a mountain of whipped cream. Weird v-shaped counter and the one round booth that fit 5 or 6. They were open on Christmas. I am pretty sure they used to be open 24 hours, I remember coming here very late back when we went clubbing a lot. That old orange sign they replaced a couple years ago. Big volcano of mashed potatoes sitting in a pool of gravy. The bus doesn’t even stop there anymore, it goes around the corner. Thanks, Tillie’s, and good night.

January 10: One nation

I spent almost eight hours at a craft day at the house of a girl I met once ages ago. Very productive, I have two new necklaces and the best bracelet yet! and two pair earrings. Maybe I’ll photograph when there is daylight.

The little people are about 2/3 of the ones a guy was making for the background scene of some stop animation he’s working on. I don’t think I could make even one of those that well. The body is the top of a popsicle stick, so you have an idea of size. The uniformity of their heads blew me away.

January 8: Lemons for you!

I can’t even begin to tell you how many ripe lemons we have right now. This is a full grocery bag, didn’t even make a dent. If you’re local and want to take advantage of the olde u-pick, message me.

After about six months of cooking, starting with absolutely no knowledge at all of anything domestic, Chad has officially surpassed my culinary skills.

I had to wait til midnight to eat but it was totally worth it.
