Plants and Nicolas Cage!

(picture stolen from perezhilton.com, that site I will no longer visit because he insulted my Nicolas.)

Two orders of business:

#1 - I saw Knowing last night, which is the new Nicolas Cage movie for those of you not cool enough to watch everything he does. It was not the worst movie I've ever seen, but the Biblical Alien themes were a bit much. I think I should buy the DVD and make a "Best Scenes of Knowing" montage in which he'll scream, be awkward, run around with a gun and a flashlight, and fishtail wildly in a humongous truck. :D

#2 - I am starting everything from seed this year. Cilantro, basil, oregano, parsley, tomatoes, peppers, and rosemary. They are just now starting to come up. Now I must go thrifting for containers. I don't think I have enough, and many of mine are terracotta, which I am beginning to dislike thanks to it pulling water out of everything.

The oregano is doing the best so far but it was hard to get a picture of.

They're still on top of my fridge, being warm and in the dark. I'm going to wait until more sprout to start eliminating and putting them in the sun.


Heart disease PSA!

Ah, poop! I said the line wrong AGAIN!

Today I am filming and editing the first ever video I've taken of myself. Creepy!

I don't like the way I look when I talk, but I suppose that's unavoidable. :P

Can I just say that I love iMovie? This is not as hard as I thought it would be. Might I also add that I make some terrible faces when I screw up? It's pretty awesome. Having a million little thumbnails of yourself making awful faces is pretty entertaining.

Here's a link to the video if any of ya'll are interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OX4yivoupio


Making purses!

I've really needed a new bag for quite a while. This was my first real sewing day in forever!

I finished a friend's tshirt - let me say right here and now that stretchy fabrics are not my strong point. I think I'll just maintain that it's very artsy being sort of uneven and all. ^_^

Then I sat down and sewed the lovely tote above, from Lotta Jansdotter's book, Simple Sewing.

It took a little over an hour and was so worth it! Now if only I could find time to sew things like this more often. Maybe once the semester is over.
