Day 16/366 – CLAMP LAMP!

Day 16 - Wednesday, January 16th 2008
I was going to set up the light tent to take a picture of my current knitting WIP for my 365 picture. This is as far as I got.

There is no limit to the amount of times that I can say “Clamp Lamp!” It’s just so fun!

A is for Adorable / Day 13/366 – Jack & Lauren

Day 13 - Sunday, January 13th 2008 - Jack & Lauren
Okay, this is going to do double-duty for both Project 365 and ABC Along.

A for adorable – this is my sister Lauren and her boyfriend Jack – absolutely adorable!


Thanks to everyone for all of your nice comments – I am feeling much better today and tomorrow we’re getting a new door and locks.

Today was lovely. I was a bit upset this morning but I had to go to work. We hosted an open house for alums of the St. Joe’s School and it was lovely. It was great talking to folks about their memories.

Eddy, Lauren and Jack came up during the event and then we stopped by my house and then headed up to Haverhill. We ate and then Jack went off to play a show (he’s in a rock ‘n roll band called With Honor) and Lauren and Eddy and I went to have coffee and donuts and then to visit with Eddy’s ex’s family. It was fun.


Day 11/366 – Robbed

Day 11 - Friday, January 11th 2008 - Robbed
Tonight our apartment was robbed. It sucks. It was the cherry on top of a terrible week. My mother’s jewelry, my grandmother’s earrings, other jewelry that’s only value is sentimental, home videos (they actually wanted the camera, the videos just happened to be in the bag) – all gone. Irreplaceable and gone. Replaceable things also gone – a video camera, a point and shoot camera, a Nikon, some lenses and filters (both for the Nikon and my trusty Rebel), an iPod, a PlayStation Portable and games, a laptop. I feel violated.

The silver lining in all of this (because I always try to see the good even if it’s hard…) we weren’t home, the robber closed the door so the cat didn’t escape, nothing was wrecked, we have insurance.

Day 8/366 – Leftover Surprise

Day 8 - Tuesday, January 8th 2008
It’s called leftover surprise and it’s what’s for supper.

It contains pasta, caramelized onions, broccoli, gorgonzola, smoked gouda, and parmesan.

In other news, I am currently watching The Medicated Child on Frontline and it is pretty disturbing. It makes me wonder about what types of meds I would be on if I were a child now. One of the most disturbing parts – many of the “extremely hyperactive” children are shown sitting in front of the teevee and drinking soda.
