chasing shadows again











[As often done, to make my Ravyn smile.]

A chocolate CD.  Shipped in a CD case, naturally.

Save The Earth!!!  This is our new Earth Day shirt!!! [Also, it totally makes me want to say “Save the chocolate.  Save the world.”]

And a tee-shirt for the prowlings!!!  In pink for the amusement of your gender neutral pronouns!!!

Chocolate-Cherry Mouse Kisses –  I would totally make these for you right now if I thought they’d survive shipping!!!  Why don’t you live close to me?  I would be showing up with chocolate-cherry mouse kisses and rum!  *looks curiously at truffle box and ponders logistics-first step, eat all the truffles; second step, snuggle chocolate mouses into the truffle cushiony papers…third step, do I have cherries?  Where is our house slave my brother?*

Chocolate Bunny in Sportscar-from Nirvana.  [Click here if you want to order one, I linked to the enlarged photo.]

It’s New Age Chocolate!!!  Chocolate and Yoga!!!  [With seven chocolates-one for each chakra!  Yes, it really goes there!]

Peace, Love, Chocolate.  Lookit!  It comes on thongs!  And boxers!  I would have though we could have matching underwear….

When Pigs Fly-um.  Um.  Uh.  Murr.  I think you have to see this one to believe it.

Back with the chocolate and the playful!

What about ice cream? White Chocolate-Rose Geranium perhaps? I’d be impressed. Need an ice cream maker? Check out MakeIceCream.com – from the rather sane additions to a kitchen like the Cuisinart ICE-30BC ($79.99-sale), to the quirky crank-handled White Mountain 4 Quart Manual Ice Cream Maker ($139.99), to the Musso Pola ice cream maker (generally reserved for those moments after winning the lottery or having a great night in Vegas at only $1,999.99).   You can also find recipes and trivia poking about this site. Having an ice cream maker might totally make the lack of easily findable lavender ice cream more bearable! I shall have to consider this thought once I settle down in a place (here in the land of loud birds I’d have to make the ice cream in the garage or something – tiny kitchen already full of delightful gadgets!).

Want to give desserts without the calories? This set of links is dedicated to the cute! Cake roll washcloths, chocolate cake towels, and cake wedge washcloths add extra fun to the slightly more predictable default calorie-free bathroom decor. The petit four lip balm set is darling overkill.

Making breakfast? Check out the heart egg mold.



{February 3, 2008}   Sunday Morning Coffee and Secrets

When I am 40, I want to be here.

Right now I am 27, and terrified I will not have children before I am 30.

I have no real home at moment (do not misinterpret, I am living in a house!) and I am slowly coming to terms with the knowledge that I will not stumble upon a place to belong and will instead have to build one.



{February 2, 2008}   Fox!!! Where did you go???

Everywhere.

Nowhere.

I went on a vacation that was bliss and anguish, I came home with no idea what my future was to find out within the week that my grandmother was dying, my grandmother died, and I still have no idea where my life is going.

Some people do rollercoasters. I don’t always understand those people. I’ve tried, but willingly subjecting myself to falling when I already feel that way so often seems crazy. There are people who find this fun.

Anyway, I’m obsessing over memory, reading old cookbooks, downloading The L Word (specifically Season Two, Episode 1), and trying to figure out what home will be. I’ve been reading Urban Tribes by Ethan Watters. I’ve been trying to figure out what to make of my life. I’m impatient and terrified and absolutely exhilarated because even if my life is chaos I’m in love!

I’ve been having a long-running internal monologue and I haven’t been sure if I should open it up to people, or how to open it up to people, or well…anything. And then I read this post by Molly and before I lose my nerve I’m going to post this. I am going to try to open this up-but offering anything of myself up honestly and openly is hard for me. Especially when I’m not holding a direct conversation. Even more so when I’m not yet sure what I think, and don’t know how to fight to defend it.

All of the things I’m thinking would make for a huge post. Sooooooo…I’m gonna try to take this one in stages. Tomorrow is Sunday-I’ll try to reestablish Postsecret and coffee.

And talk.

I must re-learn how to let people under my skin.

I think it’s time.

P.S. – For the people who leave me hugs on the sidebar-THANK YOU! As strange as it may make me, that always makes me smile.
