My New Ball - New Years 2013


This year I didn't want any green wires on the outside of the ball so I started with a styrofoam ball and hallowed it out so that I could push the lights from the inside out.

image

It was so much work, I really had no idea how strong a material styrofoam was. In my head it seemed like it would be easy but it was like two people scooping for 30 minutes.

The wrapped it in foil and decorated with pipe cleaners, ornaments and glitter foam paper. Its like all those years of art school finally had a purpose.

New Year's Eve Dinner at My Mother's


I took a lot of pictures because someday I will either be poor or the earth will run out of seafood and we can fondly remember how "it used to be."

Every year my mother makes this the pinnacle seafood dinner of the year but this was by far the best ever. (e:mike) and I didn't even fight over the fried shrimp because there was so much food. In fact I think we even had three left over crab legs which I am not sure I ever remember happening in my life.

I got the collosal king crab legs and scallops at Exclusively Alaskan down in Eden.

Sadly, I forgot to take pics of a bunch of things like string beans, baked cheesey potatoes and a nice mixed salad or any of the dessert.

His Pants Were Stolen


Last night at 3:45am ish the doorbell rang and there was a bunch of knocking. I assumed it was one of my friends and answered the door. Instead it was a man with one pant leg who had been robbed on my lawn. Instead of just taking his phone, wallet and keys - they just tried to rip his pocket off him and ended up ripping his pant leg off.

Needless to say he was pretty shaken up and it was pretty freakin cold out. He asked if I could call 911 so I figured it must be pretty legit. Because they stole his keys and phone I had to also call his building supervisor to get someone to let him in. Then I gave him a ride home.

Turned out he lives on Linwood just down the street. Its pretty crazy because he was just walking home from the Bend down on Allen. Could have been anyone.

Bath Night


Since we got back from the trip I have been obsessed with baths. I don't know why I didn't take advantage of the tub before.

I almost pulled a Whitney though. Note to self, do not drink wine in the tub and decide a quick nap qould be ok.

Mike Konos Burnished Leather Boot

These shoes are so amazing.

image

The soles are made of that amazing Italian Rubber that smells exactly like Cabbage Patch Kid faces. (e:mike) you know what I am talking about.

image

I never buy shoes online but I tried these on at the store and they were awesome. For some reason they are $169 at the store but $129 online at the same company.

image

I asked at the store but they wouldn't match their own online price. That seems so stupid to me. It basic is relegating the brick and mortar store to a try on room.

I finally got my DSW account's merged and online access. For my trouble they gave me an extra 500 points which got me another $10 Cash Reward cert.

Lockitron - Smartphone powered door lock

Another thing I wanted to make is already made. I figured the price point is cheaper than I would have made it for with all the fuckups and melted circuit boards that would have occurred along the way. Although less fun.
  • so it monitors your door being locked an unlocked.
  • lets you send keys and revoke them as needed
  • lock and unlock the door remotely
  • not have to both carrying around a key when you already have a smartphone in your pocket
  • works with existing infrastructure

I pre-ordered now for $179 to save $20. They come out in march.

Its also arduino compatible and has an API. I can't wait.

When I said sheep in fishnet stockings, I was joking

Yesterday, I jokingly referred to sheep wearing fishnets and heels. Obviously I was joking as I don't see what that would be necessary with sheep already sexy as they are naturally. Anyways, like everything I think is original, its already been done. Apparently, its even already been mass produced and is available for $34.99 (hint, hint to anyone planning a bachelor party)

New Year's Food - Crab Legs


I made the trip down to Eden's Exclusively Alaskan in order to pick up crab legs for my mom's New Years dinner party. We had a $50 gift certificate to start with so it was a good start. Also got some scallops and salmon in a jar. The guy threw in, according to him, the world's only seafood pierogis. I am excited to try them.

Fashion Rubbers - Tingley


My whole life I made fun of my dad for wearing rubbers on his shoes. Then as ana adult I got my own fancy leather shoes and syarted walking to work through the salty slush. Suddenly, it all made sense so for christmas this year I asked for my own rubbers and got em from my dad. I have been wearing them ever since.
