Joey: Here's a little tip, she really likes it when you rub her neck in the same spot over and over and over again until it starts to get a little red.

Calm down, I'm here.

Things have been blissfully uneventful, and sometimes that's just what I need.  I need the steady pace of a cat meowing outside my door at four in the morning and a husband that stays cute and draws things. (Here's a link to his blog with some new designs he's done, go check it out!)

I've made/fixed up a couple things, so here are pictures:



I put glitter on the cat treats lid, and was trying to find a good angle to showcase the glitter when someone in the background didn't like that I was just holding the jar and not getting down to business.


In other boring, grown up news, 2011 is becoming THE YEAR THAT SUNSHINE FORGOT.  Us Portlanders have stopped complaining about the crummy weather and just started shaking our fists and then hanging our heads in despair.  I'm knitting mittens, for crying out loud.  It's almost June.  I've been reading all these Australian blogs and am starting to feel like maybe we're on the other side of the equator.  I'll be spending my Memorial Day weekend nesting and finishing good books.  I should be nesting and finishing good books and saying, "We really should be outside."

This summer is going to be eventful though, with SOCK SUMMIT in July (w00t!) and then a super secret vacation to go and see my friend Amy.

Also, if you're going to Sock Summit, let me know!  I'll be there Saturday July 30th (a mere two days after my man turns 29 and after 48 hours of me going "I'm only 24, neener!").  I'd love to meet up (or ruthlessly avoid, BE HONEST) and I can give you some pointers about things in the Portland area.  And by "pointers" I mean I'm going to tell you the worst way to get somewhere and then when you're hopelessly lost on public transit and you send me a desperate text message, I'll only reply "?".

Anyone need a set of dishes?
