Random Thoughts of a Crazy Lady

If you decide to learn to knit, don't be surprised when your cats take a vested interest in your endeavor.

Just sayin'.

Yarn is irresistible. 

~~~~~~~~~~

If you knit the world's longest scarf, then get to the end and miss a loop when tying it off and the whole thing falls apart, don't freak out.

It's okay. Sure, you spent an inordinate amount of time working on it, but you still had fun. It still distracted you from your mercenary uterus and throbbing headache.

So take it apart and start over.

But don't fuck it up this time.

~~~~~~~~~~

I had a dream last night that I couldn't find my flip flops.

It was awful.

Clearly I love flip flops.

And am ready for spring.


Clearly.

~~~~~~~~~~

I love Portland. I love that I live in a place where several times a day I think, Only in Portland.

I love that I can sit by the window in my favorite coffee shop and see all sorts of disparate sights. A hipster douchebag walking with a guy dressed like a lumberjack, a tiny woman carrying a huge accordion, a lady in cowboy boots and short shorts on a cold day, a man bundled up for a blizzard on a hot day, and any number of small children who are more adept on bicycles than I am.

~~~~~~~~~~

I spotted this contact juggler at the Portland Saturday Market last weekend.

For those who don't know, contact juggling focuses on the movement of objects, such as balls, in contact with the body. For example, there are videos of this guy all over the internet and I've heard he's supposed to be one of the best in the world. Or check out this guy.

Anyway, I took so many shots that I decided to take a handful and put together this short vid. Hope you like.

1. Awesome photo.

Elly Lou - and really tight pants. YUM!

I love to knit. Particularly hats and mittens, because they are both done quickly AND, there is nothing more wonderful than that feeling when you've made a THUMB. It's awesome.

Nush- yay flip flops!

Elly Lou- stop it. I'm dying here. mmmm Bowie.

Colleen- double yum!

Sun- I can't wait to learn to do a hat!!

I wonder how long it takes him to put ON that makeup, and then take it off at the end of the day? :)

andygirl said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I can't even imagine *how* he takes that off!

I love portland...I'm coming back (Just left Bend yesterday) in two months. I'm already counting down the days. This time I get to spend 3 days there with college buddies before heading down south.
I'd never heard of contact juggling before. I loved the music btw...

I've lived in Portland for 9 months now and I still love it. :) thanks!
