I’m looking for an aqua or teal wall around the Palo Alto area (that is, anywhere on the peninsula really) for a sort of photo shoot. I want something saturated but not dark, and nothing tending towards being neutral. I’m hoping for a wall that has at least 7′ tall and 7′ wide patch of color, large enough for a person to stand in front of. Hopefully something in a quiet industrial area where no one will mind a few people taking pictures on a weekend. (No, it’s nothing naughty, shame on you.) The only one I know of for sure is a place called Repo Depo somewhere off Middlefield in Mountain View, but if by any strange chance you know of one, let me know. Thanks!
Last night I made chicken parmesan (ok, it was a spicy chik’n patty covered with jarred tomato sauce and grated kraft parmesan), I don’t eat like this every night (ok, I do).
(There are links to How-Tos in those links as well, and you can find some links in the comments for this post, thanks everyone!)
Check out Squibnocket’s new homemade curtains. Pretty!
From today’s Daily Candy, Homework (warning: flash) is pretty. I especially like the items which take me back to kid-dom — the Bubble Gum Rings, real silver or pink gold cast in actual prize ring molds; and the Rocking Cell Clock, a little desktop clock which is a Weeble toy in disguise.

Page 61 of the most recent Bitch magazine says “The Internet is filled with self-proclaimed feminist sites with names like Crafty Bitch, Not Martha, and Disgruntled Housewife, offering domestic advice and crafting tips”. I never proclaimed myself a feminist. I did a search and the word “feminist” turns up on my site (all archives included) once – in the link to Bitch magazine itself.
The plan for this evening is fondue desert. We got a fondue pot for Christmas (yay!) so we’re going to do a chocolate night. Fresh fruit, almonds, and tiny macaroons. I want the red fork. I found a chocolate fondue recipe the first place I looked – Yum! Chocolate Fondue.
the february 2003 living magazine has a section on how to knit, with pictures and instructions at one place, and patterns in another. frustrating.
a few things from while I was away:
deviant goods makes cranky chic chemo caps, soft caps for chemo patients which say things like “chemo sucks” and “fuck cancer”, as well as monster caps, sushi toilet paper roll covers and wine bottle bags. found at boing boing and girl wonder.
