TIFF 2015 – Thursday

Thursday morning, we had a little yogurt and fruit for breakfast again (or maybe Thursday was the toast and fruit day?), and worked, and our first movie of the day was I Smile Back, with Sarah Silverman as a suburban housewife who’s just about to not be able to cover up her reckless escapades into […]

Just a Thursday

Yesterday was kind of hosed – it started with 4 advising appointments back to back, the first in-person, so I had to be in the office by 8:00 AM, the rest by phone. Then I dashed off to a meeting at 11:00 – deadly stuff, HR policies – but they gave us lunch. I had […]


Which I’m writing about on Tuesday, for Pete’s sake – Saturday we went to the farmers market for Cows on the Concourse. Petted cows, watched grilled cheese mass production, bought the first sugarsnap peas of the season. And a bunch of flowers. And two bunches of asparagus to make into shaved asparagus pizza for Heike’s […]

Asparagus pizza II

I made asparagus pizza for dinner tonight, and I liked it just as much as the first time. I put the pics on my Tumblr. But this one’s the best: I also got my first CSA box of 2014. I went right after work to pick it up with my bike, and I had my […]

WI Fim fest – the rest

  Sunday was our biggest film fest day – three movies, starting with Gabrielle, about two sweet kids with disabilities, in love.  The woman who plays Gabrielle the character is also named Gabrielle – Gabrielle Marion-Rivard. She has Williams Syndrome in real life as in film; the actor that plays her boyfriend Martin does not […]

Chicago trip to deliver students…

… to O’Hare. Our AFS student signed up for a trip to California, and was required by the travel service to fly out of O’Hare, so rather than getting up at 3:00 AM to get her to the airport in time for an 8:10 Saturday morning flight, we drove down on Friday night, and got […]

Day 4, Vacation slash work at home week

I think the only work work I did today was email. Tomorrow will have to be a different story. I taught the 2nd of the three cooking demos at Aprilaire I’m doing this summer – #1 was back in June, and #3 will be October. They’re a company here in Madison that makes indoor air […]

First dinner in Seattle

It was only Mark & I for dinner our 1st night at the librarians conference, so I took him to Tom Douglas pizza place, Serious Pie. The downtown one was too full, so we walked to Westlake.

Long drive to Ohio

On the long drive to Ohio, after we passed the giant windfarm, we had breakfast at the Sunrise Diner in West Lafayette IN (at 3:00 p.m.) The #6 – eggs, choice of meat, choice of potatoes, toast, choice of a short stack of pancakes or biscuits & gravy. It was a little food-service-y: deep fried […]
