    Had a second round of snow in Virginia today. I put the gingerbread house from Christmas on the porch for the birds (they love to nibble on it), and it got covered with snow!

    Haha, definitely not. My great grandmother made it for my mom over 50 years ago.

    My parents were actually out to visit this weekend and commented on the afghan. I took it with me when I moved out, and they forgot all about it. We were lamenting the fact that, once my 92-year old grandma dies, nobody in the family will know how to make afghans. We need to learn!

    ^You should ask her to teach you! I bet it'd make her day!

    maybe we should actually look at blades of grass instead of a rodent to detect spring, hmm?

    Unfortunately, she lives 3 hours away. It is something I would like to learn how to do, though. I'm tired of not accomplishing anything during long Netflix marathons.

    ^I'm sorry but three hours is nothing. Unless you live more than a day's drive away, there is no real reason why you can't make it to see her a couple of times a year. She may have some kind of directions written or published somewhere. You still work at that bar with a buddy of yours, right? Surely something can be worked out time to time.

    . My maternal grandmother was a seamstress. I recall some kind of picture guides she used to keep with her kits, lot like those wiki picture "how-to" guides.

    Netflix binges is how I measure my afghans. The black and white one on my sofa took two and a half seasons of Criminal Minds. The multi-color on my bed was a larger gauge -- it only took a little over a season of Supernatural. :)

    I miss my Netflix binges. It got me through my losing my job. Actually, I started doing it before (no it has nothing to do it). I promised myself I'll get back to it once I'm back into full time employment, hopefully in Austin, with the addition of the DVD option. It always seemed to me that the better movie/tv options were only available by DVD :(

    This is me wearing sunglasses indoors like a douche. In my defense, I am recovering from a concussion and have to wear sunglasses indoors like a douche. The friend who took this picture said I looked like I was doing a genderswapped cosplay of Hyde from That '70s Show. I am taking it as a complement.

    That is one of the cutest and most awesome outfits I've ever seen you wearing. I love that shirt. :)

    Thrift store in Seattle, three bucks, baby! Got the pants at another thrift store outside Seattle for $5. Choker was another thrift store. The shoes are these fantastic maroon super chunky heel docs I got of eBay for $25...let's see if I have a pic...
    Here we go, I knew I'd taken a picture of these:

    Which looked perfect with the vintage '70s burgundy leather trench coat I wore (bought at same thrift store as the pants a couple years earlier for $12).
    Yeah, that was a good outfit day.

    You can never go wrong with Docs! They always meet those two criteria! I have a pair of classic Docs (the good ol' black boots) that were my sister's when she was 16. Aside from swapping the laces out a few times, they've lasted well on 20 years now! The laces didn't even need to be swapped out. She just put pink ones in after she saw Welcome Home Roxy Carmichael and the tradition stayed. I have 5 pairs in different styles.
    eBay's actually a great place to find them too. It makes it easier to find the original Made in England ones as well.

    Hey Ancient Mariner - fantastic shots! What kind of camera +/ lens are you using? Bearing in mind that if you tell me it's a phone cam I will commit hara kiri with a rusty reciprocating saw.
    :D

    Thanks @Triskelion ! I'm using a Canon 70D and those photos were taken with an 18-135mm Canon lens.

    @Ancient Mariner, when you were down in the meatpacking district, did you walk the High Line? I always do that when I'm in the city. Interesting views from up there!

    And if so, can he call you Al?
