me, Mavis

I knit. I garden. I co-manage an eclectic shop. I sometimes work in real estate. I sometimes swing a hammer. I always volunteer in my community. I live in an old house with my nice family of one husband and three beastly cats. I have great friends. These are the things that matter to me, Mavis.

End of Week Observations and Musings

1. Having braces has brought an unexpected bonus to me, Mavis. Pre-braces, I wore a pants size "X", fitting quit snugly. Braces went on October 31, 2005. Pants purchased first week of February, 2006 are a size X minus 1 and fit quite comfortably. This is because I am a brushing/flossing nerd (Hello! I'm paying eleventeen thousand dollars for this process!) and cannot even fathom a between meal snack that is worth the effort of the brushing routine.

2. Before I leave the house, I MUST check the whereabouts of each of my 3 Beasts... AND, I MUST tell them where I'm going; when I'll be back; to have fun; to look out for each other; and that I love them. As they are almost never all together, I MUST go through this dialogue at least twice.

3. Thing have been coming in "two's" this week. During a very brief blog-reading session this morning, I was TWICE directed to (of all people),William Shatner. Yes, that pompous-assed, bad-acting, flinging-myself-about-the-under-attack-Enterprise, William Shatner. First, the ever-enlightening Knit'Nat directed us to his new DVD club ... and if THAT wasn't bad enough, then Veggie Geek (see Feb. 3, "Common People") posted the lyrics to his song ... with Joe Jackson??? This is too weird for me, Mavis.

4. Vegetarians and Vegans spend too much time answering lame questions about their food choices. In this video, Steven the Vegan gives an idea what it's like. (I found the link on the Shmoo Blog).

5. I get so pumped when I feel like I have bested "The Man" and won a round for "the little guy." My dental wax discovery will make me happy for a long while.

6. We're preparing for a snowstorm here in MerryLand, which means that the grocery stores are filled to the tippy-top with aggravated, unfriendly folks elbowing one another to get milk, bread and toilet paper. I went in for the required Friday Night Pizza, but came away forlorn ... no plain pies were left. I did get the fixins for Mike's Heartwarming Vegetarian Chili ... and 2 bags of Frito's Scoops with which the DH eats his chili ... no spoon necessary!

    Thanks for the kind words on my blog. I really am surprised people don't think I'm (more) crazy. *smiles*

    As for pizza, you should try the "Easy Pizza Crust" recipe from It's SO yummy and fast. Even though it says you don't need to let the yeast rise.. give it 5-8 minutes and it's even better.
