sidenote

When I googled "i80 printer eating paper backwards" I got this google result on the first page:
http://www.poopreport.com/Poll/do_women_poop_less_frequently_than_men.html

Do you see that? "Do women poop less frequently than men?" Odd. Google, sometimes you crack me up. I'm glad we're friends.

history repeats... so do dairy products

One of the worst sicks I've ever experienced was after a particularly greedy run-in with a pint of chocolate-fudge ice cream. It was violent. Due to the vomiting, all frozen sweet products were dead to me for almost an entire year -- not a small feat for a 10-year old kid.

Tonight I'm having a recurrence... well, not really, but I went too far with the ice cream and I'm having regrets over my poor choices.

Urgh.

Also, my portable printer may have just bitten the dust. How annoying. I just changed the ink.

ernie of the day

He took a quick break from lounging on the floor...Poor bug. It got up to 95 degrees today, so he's been sleeping all over the floor (anywhere that it's nice and cool). I let him hang out in the fridge for a bit while I made a sandwich (door open! It's our funny trick; I open the door, he jumps in). I think this is going to be a very long summer.

sad day

I woke to the news that Louise Bourgeois died on Monday. We were lucky to have one of her bronze sculptures on loan when the Denver Art Museum's new extension opened a few years ago -- I first met "Mother" at the Tate Modern in London -- it was one of the massive ones which was on display in front of the Guggenheim in Bilbao most recently (although I could be making that last bit up... Maman has traveled the globe). We had the mini-Maman in Denver, but she was still striking.

The massive spider sculptures are recently her most famous, but her body of work, which spans seven decades was revolutionary... controversial... important.

Here's a bit of Maman (after they moved her into the lobby of the DAM).
