People say friends don't destroy one another. What do they know about friends?

I'm in love with this song by the band The Mountain Goats. They played here over the weekend and I missed them because we had prior plans, but that doesn't mean I didn't listen to Tallahassee pretty much every minute I was in the car!
They remind me of all of the things that I loved about the Alaskan music scene back in the day. If my last trip up there was any indication, it is no longer like that. But way back when, when we used to walk 10 miles in the snow to school, uphill both ways...

This is a fun live video, but I highly recommend you check out the album version. It is that good!

Game Shows Touch Our Lives

Dug up a fifth of Hood River gin
That stuff tastes like medicine
But I'll take it
It'll do

On the couch in the living room all day long
Music on the television playing our song
And I'm in the mood
The mood for you

Turn the volume up real high
All of that money look at it fly
And you smoking like a chimney
Shadows crawled across the living room's length
I held onto you with a desperate strength
With everything with everything in me
And I handed you a drink of the lovely little thing
On which our survival depends
People say friends don't destroy one another
What do they know about friends?

Thunderclouds forming cream white moon
Everything's going to be okay soon
Maybe tomorrow
Maybe the next day

Carried you up the stairs that night
All of this could be yours if the price is right
I heard cars headed down to oblivion
Up on the expressway
Your drunken kisses as light as the air
Maybe everything that falls down eventually rises
Our house sinking into disrepair
Ah but look at this showroom filled with fabulous prizes

February 24th, 2008 - Yarn Doodlez

I made these this weekend. I was showing Bree how to crochet a few weeks back and in the process picked up a hook again myself. I made some cat toys and realized how quickly I can make them so I got a bit carried away. I just started making shapes and when they were coming together I decided what they looked the most like and turned them into that thing. Some of them are finger puppets and some are cat toys. We have a mouse, a fancy pig, a boar, a purple octopus, a yellow man, a cat in a hat and even a unicorn!

This is MR Happy (emo-con)
Jon told me to caption this one:
"MR HAPPY goes postal."

(You will be seeing more of him. I'm sure of it.)
