Jonathon Coulton Guitar Lessons

For any of my guitar-playing friends who also like Jonathan Coulton‘s songs, a kindly fan is now posting weekly lessons on how to play JoCo songs. This week is “Skullcrusher Mountain”. I will definitely be trying these out.

Project 22 – 19 -23 December 2007

This batch of photos brings us up to the Christmas holiday. Continue reading ‘Project 22 – 19 -23 December 2007’

Project 22 – 5 – 11 November 2007

This photo update’s unofficial theme should either be food or macro. Or possibly both.

Dark Chocolate M&Ms

My chocolate cravings in recent weeks have been sated with dark chocolate M&Ms, but I am down to the last of my supply, shown here. Thankfully, I bought some Mounds bars at the store yesterday.

Nameless Casserole

On the 6th, I decided to be brave when I got home from work, so I tried to throw together a casserole using my leftovers and bits of things I had here and there in the kitchen. This was the result. It incorporated chicken, wild rice, cream of mushroom soup, cornbread stuffing, an apple, and other such yummy things. I was pretty pleased with the result, though I did feel that it would benefit from a blast from a spice weasel.

My Shiny Guitar

This is one of my toys that I wish I had more time to play with. I’ve decided that it just might be necessary to take it to North Carolina with me this Christmas when I have no research to distract me from the fun.


Part of my corner of the kitchen, including my much-loved spice carousel (just like my mom’s). It should be clear that many of these photos are getting taken at the end of the day, when I have food on my mind…

Indian Beads

This is actually the edging along my bedside lamp. On Friday (when this photo was taken), I had a craving for Indian food, which is one food ethnicity with which I don’t have much experience. Joe, on the other hand, loves Indian food. So I didn’t have to try very hard to convince him to go out for some. What does this have to do with my lamp? Well, it’s supposed to be Indian; in fact, the base is an elephant, which explains why my mother bought it for me. (Also in the background of this shot: my contact lens cleaner, the shadow of a photo of Deatheaters, and part of my autographed Frames poster.)

Wet Autumn Day

The cobblestones of Court Street where I usually wait for the bus in the mornings.

Butterscotch Cookies

We’ve reached the time of year where I start craving all the treats that we always had around the holidays when I was a kid. Most of yesterday was spent suffering in PowerPoint, and, at the end of the day, I needed a pick-me-up. So I made up some rolls of my family’s butterscotch cookie dough, headed up to Joe’s place, and baked cookies. This photo actually shows a batch getting ready to go into the oven. If you’re interested in the recipe, I’ve posted it at Starving Students.
