Tending to the progeny

I took a serious hiatus from these people. In fact, I thought of never returning. But return I did and, to my chagrin, I found that they are even more house-bound than ever. Luckily I missed out on the family trip to South Dakota. Good lord people. You really need to work on your itinerary.

I decided to go to the Olympics in British Columbia. I thought that I would appreciate the international flavor, and maybe score an athlete;) Instead, I ended up ringing a cowbell on the ski slopes. While doing so was uncouth, I enjoyed it.

While in Vancouver, I realized that I look good with the Canadian flag.

There is nothing to do at hockey games, but take pictures of me.

Don't I look fabulous?

Here I am pretending to be interested in the game. Again, Tamara decided to match her scarf to mine (see the Europe photos). Who can blame her? I'm such a style maven even at boring hockey games.

Europe, part II

My life has been so busy that I haven't gotten around to posting the rest of the photos from my trip to Europe last October. Here they are:

I plan to get married in this church.

What a majestic view...

Look at the tiny back hoe in this photo. No wonder these Europeans can't get anything done! Socialists...

This bucksome woman terrifies me a bit. Who would make a ceramic sculpture of her?

And, while I'm at it, who puts a ceramic lobster in a museum!? The Germans need a little more taste.

I may have over-indulged on the desserts just a little bit...

Cruise to the Statue of Liberty

I recently jet-seted off to New York City for a series of fabulous parties.

Here I am in front of the Brooklyn Bridge. I think I am way more attractive than this hunk of stone.

Here I am with the Statue of Liberty. I am so glad that I got to see it on a classy, double-masted sailboat, with cocktail in hand, instead of with those huddled masses yearning to be free...

I look better in this light.

The food at the party was to die for.

Vacation to Europe

Thank god that I finally got out of the Pacific Northwest and over to Europe. Things are MUCH more civilized in the Old World, and I fit in MUCH better.

Here I am in a museum in Berlin with an Assyrian statue. Culture, finally!

I would have fit in well with the people that made the Ishtar Gate. Isn't my profile gorgeous? My nose job is perfect.

My traveling companion, Tamara, matched her outfit to mine. Apparently, everyone is jealous of my style sense.

Everyone laughs at all of my jokes.

The Berliners have no respect for how to properly drink a beer! The pilsner on the left is mixed with Sprite and the porter on the right with Coke! Pansy Germans can't handle their liquor like a geisha can!

I took a lover during my travels. Isn't he hunky, in that Renaissance fair kind of way?

My lover's palace was divine. Why doesn't my house in Seattle have a ballroom?

I enjoyed looking at the peasants' houses across the river from my lover's castle. I like it when royal people like me can separate themselves from the masses.

The memories of my time in Germany are too much to bear given my dreary existence in Seattle. I'll have to post the pictures from the Czech Republic in a few days so I don't get too overwhelmed.

The harvest

I hitched a ride out with the harvest.

fungi fun

I found many mushrooms of different varieties but none to match the specifications of my companions.
