Slightly NSFW Seattle Snow Sculpture

Posted on
Jan 19, 2012

It’s been snowing for days here in Seattle, effectively shutting the town down. Buses are stranded on hills, schools are closed, and Rand and I have done our best not to go all “Shining” on each other while stuck indoors together (except for a brief bit of hatchet chopping which he really had coming, it’s…

Note: Due to yesterday’s SOPA blackout (which I spent in my pajamas, eating M&M cookies and I REGRET NOTHING) this week’s WTF Wednesday is appearing today. Which, I’m told, is a Thursday. But really, who’s keeping track? – – I began questioning authority at a tender young age. This is in no small part due to…

Hi folks, I’m afraid I have to go and get all political on you. I’m truly sorry. You know how desperately I try not to be informed about, well, anything (for proof, please note the time I got Greenwich and North Greenwich mixed up. Or when I claimed that leprechauns were from Scotland.)

There are times when I am reminded of why, despite all my travels, Seattle will always be home to me. I’ll always come back here. I’ll always love it. It may be true that during our rainy season, a woman could go through her entire gestation cycle and produce a lovely, though Vitamin-D-deficient, child. Or…

The other day, Rand and I were talking to one another, which is something we do when we aren’t sleeping, eating, or staring mindlessly at our keyboards (Yup. Our lives are full of romance. ENVY US). I can’t seem to retrace the steps of the conversation to how we got where we did, but at…

The Week: Jan 13, 2011

Jan 13, 2012

It’s Friday the 13th, and there’s been shockingly little hockey mask wearing and chainsaw wielding in our next of the woods. I am perfectly okay with this (hopefully, the same will be said of the next two Fridays the 13th that will occur this year). The sun is shining here in Seattle, there’s frost on…

Is it possible to make something truly wonderful (and fattening) even more wonderful (and also more fattening)? Of course. This is America, damn it. Where we don’t take “no” or “that’s irresponsible from a dietary standpoint” for an answer. Where we take our dessert with an extra side of dessert. Behold: – These are the…

  • Little man was super into Rand. I can relate.
  • He was pretending to be an #owl.
  • This was the sky tonight. #nofilter #sunset #Seattle
  • I may have done something rash. Really rash. #undercut
  • Friends, @publicaffairsbooks is giving away copies of my memoir on Goodyear! Check out their feed for more info!
  • This is terrible. #puns #badpuns #punsfordays
  • I can't believe my trip to #Cambodia was almost exactly three years ago. That was when I had the pleasure of meeting Lucky the elephant at a wildlife refuge. She was a teenager, and definitely acting the part. . . . 
#elephantlove #elephants #taoprohm
  • Rand told me this was the first weekend in a long time that he didn't spend at his computer. We could barely remember the last time we went to Bainbridge, but holy cats did we pick a good day for it. #randaldineselfie #selfiesonaboat #bainbridgeisland
  • Dinosaurs.
  • I am absolutely blown away by @somekindofalibrary's gorgeous photo and review of my book. I'm near tears on the lightrail right now (it's been an emotional week). Thank you so much, Renée!
