Grump, grump

So I spent my first wedding anniversary yesterday husbandless. And it sucked. I'll write more later (planning a cross-post w/ Wer Ond Wif), but you can imagine how it would suck. The lunchtime view above, plans for going down to the Cape over the next few weekends, and looking forward to PEI in one month are the only things keeping me going. So thanks, ocean, for making the ache in the pit of my stomach go away a little. Just a little, though.

Guess who I got to hear speak tonight at the Portsmouth Music Hall?  Give ya 3 guesses . . . Gaiman was brilliant (natch) and it was a lovely time.  He also had many, many awesome quotable quotes, but these few spring to mind:
  • "I have writer's block.  Leave me alone.  I have to drink tea and contemplate the infinite."
  • "When I was a kid, I had this book called 'Dalek World' and I learned that Daleks can't see red . . . but there are red Daleks! . . . I always worried about them."
  • "I have this box, mentally as well as physically actually, where I'm always putting stuff for American Gods #2."  !!!
Please to enjoy the crappy phone pictures taken from my restricted view balcony seat.

Dad's Day Pics

Man, those nephews of mine are super cute.  Not bad kids to be a father or grandfather to.

I Guess She Was Cold?

I promise a return to semi-regular blogging next week (and an explanation of where I've been). In the meantime, though, CUTEST (albeit silliest) DOG EVER!

The Rewards of a Town with No Bars

I seriously love this pine tree. And this idyllic scene? Under a half-mile down the street from my house.

Reversal of Stereotypes

On the way up to Portsmouth today to work on my exhibit, I saw a car with a bumper sticker that read "Conservatives Have More Fun." . . . Huh? If anyone is going to be having fun in life, it's us pot-smoking, free-loving commie-pinko-hippie-liberals, thank you very much.
