When Andy and i visited friends in Boston last September, i mentioned at one point that Andy had long hair and a goatee when we met. Since he’s clean-shaven and close-cropped these days, our friends found it hard to believe.
Well. One finds the most wonderful things when one is packing to move.
Behold, Andy at 20:
OH, EXCUSE ME. I have been informed that this picture must also be posted:
So sciency. So sexy. Tho’, to be fair, i thought lab coats were really, really sexy until i met an actual real life working lab coat. A lab coat that’s been used for actual science is, as you can see from Andy’s sleeve, fucking nasty. We still haven’t gotten rid of his lab coat, because i’m not sure what proper hazmat disposal would be.
I’m impressed. I bought this plant as a start from a farmer at the market about 3 weeks ago. By the time i left for WisCon (about 2 weeks ago) it had this tiny little fruit on it. While i was gone we had cool, rainy weather. Since i’ve been back we’ve had warm, sunny weather. Apparently this is how you make a little cucumbers into big ones. And i have at least 2 more blossoms turning into little cucumbers already.

This pin was Gma Kelly’s. It’s one of the first things i acquired from her jewelry collection when Gpa Kelly insisted i look it over.
The weekend in Seattle was dismally rainy and very windy. Yesterday was much calmer and more pleasant. Today is dreadful again. I’m wearing a dress i usually like and which i pair with my beloved blue platform shoes; but going to class and back i’m slopping around in knee-high wellington boots, and sitting in the classroom staring at the fabric of this dress i’m coming to the conclusion that that it’s probably time to bid this 20-year-old garment good-bye because it’s too prone to wrinkling and i’m tired of taking 30 minutes to iron it.
Then class is finished and i’m wrapping myself up in my scarf layers for the trek across campus in the chilly rain. And what do i do?
I gash my thumb across the sharp top of this pin. Not a huge gouge, but it’s bigger than a scratch and it bled and it requires a bandage for the time being.
Just that sort of day where even beloved things scratch you when you’re least expecting it.
Well you’re NOT.
