Ross’ Super Birthday Party

27 Aug

Well I threw Ross a birthday bash and it was a lot of fun, I Love Parties! It’s been too long. There is glitter all over the floor now, Sue helped decorate with the glitter, and leftover beer taking up valuable space in our new (smaller) fridge. Normally the beer would be gone by now, but Ross is not a big beer drinker and I’m going off gluten for the moment, again. I did however eat gluten when I ate the birthday cake I made for Ross, a Zebra Icebox cake. Of course I did not manage to take a picture of it, but there’s enough pictures of cakes on the Internet, it it didn’t look real pretty anyway, so I think it will okay. It did taste Great however, like cookies&cream icecream, YUM. Ross was feeling shitty and we almost canceled the party but thankfully we decided to have it anyway, and it made him feel better. I was decorating either way. I also made him this awesome card and still haven’t really given it to him… hmmmm….

Black & White Cookies

9 Aug

I made these for Hana for her birthday this year. They’re a little wonky, but I designed them myself, and that’s a first. Design is such a big word, these were pretty easy to conceive, although I wish I had been able to find better plush fabric. It’s all good though. As you can see, one is happy, and one is sad.

Ah, good taste! What a dreadful thing! Taste is the enemy of creativeness.

You are not I

7 Aug

We watched “You are not I” by Sara Driver last night. Ross was excited to get the DVD box set because he hasn’t seen “You Are Not I” yet, and it’s a highly regarded film. It’s about 50 minutes which means it doesn’t fit as a short film, or a feature length, but it fits perfectly into our lazy Monday night. We watch a lot of movies at night, and half the time we have to stop it halfway because someone is too tired to finish (usually me). This film was enjoyable, black and white, with a mystical, eerie soundtrack. An interesting tidbit, Nan Goldin was one of the dead car crash victims. It’s fun to recognize names in the credits. Ross wondered if the crash scene was a found scene or created just for the film, and that question is answered in this article I found. I just realized how the title kind of contradicts the “twist” that happens in the story which I find interesting to think about.
