At Dallas Nightclub. I always thought this place was a strip club.
Last night’s party had a 30 ft long slip-n-slide. Whataparty!
Last week I made this Rachel Ray recipe, minus the steak. As I hollowed out the tomatoes I realized the recipe might be a little too advanced for my cooking skills. With that said, it came out pretty good and gave me a little confidence boost in the kitchen. I don’t think I’ll make it again, but it was fun!
I think it is safe to say this year’s Thanksgiving was the best meal yet. It was hosted by my Cousin Mike and his Wife Jenny at their beautiful home in Terrytown, West Austin. I don’t think one dish was a bomb, they all exceeded expectation. The only thing missing was my mom, who had to work because cancer doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving. (She works at MD Anderson, Cancer Hospital)
Turkey and Brisket from Rudy’s BBQ, two kinds of stuffing, Aunt Helen’s creamed spinach that I made (vegan), brussels sprouts with bacon, green bean with bacon and mustard sauce, too much cranberry sauce (that I made), sweet potatoes, and creamed corn.
The Kid’s Table, where I will sit for the rest of my life.
Now you see it.
Now you don’t.

Friday night, my boyfriend Andrew and I drove to Caddo Lake for a cabin retreat with his friends Ruben and Kelly. In one weekend we managed to drive over 600 miles and spend about 31 hours total on the Texas-Louisiana border in the form of a lake. Here are a few photos.
All I could think of at 1:30 am as we drove through Marshall, Texas was:
1. David Lynch’s Lost Highway
2. Aliens (the real deal, not the movie)
The Spanish Moss is thought to be the hair of a deceased Native American Princess who died young.
Kelly conquering a fallen hero.
On our paddle boat tour we were told this Big Cypress is thought to be 700-800 years old.
Andrew taking his time to get a nice golden crust on his marshmallow.
Lily Pads, and not this kind: Please Follow Link, You Will Not Be Disappointed.
I made a few shrinkey dinks tonight. This is my favorite way to make art these days.
October 26th at Emos, Villagers open for Ra Ra Riot. Can’t wait to watch this little Irish man perform.
I got my butt over to d berman gallery today to experience the current, and almost over, exhibit featuring Shawn Smith and Joseph Philips. If you are like me and want nothing to do with the ACL crowds tomorrow, I recommend you view this show on its last day of life. Just to get your engines going, here are a few of my favorites:
