it feels like 1988 whenever we see each other. as if we see each other every day (in the art room @lakewood high).
that, i would say, is a good friend!

whats up with steph?

my computer is very sad.

for now i am using whichever computer is @ home and not being used by james and i am slowly but surely remembering my usernames + passwords to the zillion sites i like to look @ daily.

i dont know when i became a nerd but i guess its inevitable, y’know, since i married one and all. but for reals, whats up with me being so dependent on the dub dub dub? (aka=internets, www)

i think its b.c. of my flickr addiction that has never really lightened up, its been years now and i just totally totally heart it. it keeps me connected to my buddies all over this planet. like i really know (see) what is going on in their lives and that makes me happy πŸ™‚

so yeah i figured out my yahoo id thingie and i posted a bzillion photos today and then proceeded to spend a long long time tagging, organizing, naming, describing, >>> flickring.

okay so go check them out….

p.s cute idea for a group:

also,

it was week of old-skool visitors this past week:

vanessa and her son came over for the day-they live in myrtle beach and were in nj visitng family and took some time to see our house and go to the park, two parks actually, and out to veggie heaven, and do arts and crafts!

mikey came up and luckily i saw him and his cutie wifey and son not that long ago. he came up and we went to go see peter murphy. i am happy to report he is still a sexy man, peter that is, well hey mikey is still a cutie too! (no worries maria or james, it aint like that) we had fun times and danced and acted silly.

biyana came over today with her beansprout (eliana who is just sprouting up into the cutest little blondie curlie haired girl) and ron (who is def. old skool). and we had fun times and talked and talked and busted out photos from the 90’s and remembered, and chased around eliana, and checked out the garden (!) and went to church street for cuteness and a strangely timed meal-4pm-early bird special. and then we hugged a lot.

also this past week chloe stayed with us for a few days and it was a non-stop art making and silliness marathon. my niece is cooler than your niece for sure πŸ™‚ she did an amazing painting, and fuse beads, and god’s eyes (fiber art!), lots of drawing and painting and beads, buttons, scissors, yarn, and so on. we watched spirited away and little house on the prairie. baked bread. had visitors including our neighbor hanna. walked around montclair. had a picnic in the grass. we also went to the montclair art museum with our sketchbooks and drew and looked and talked. fun. maybe we will go to moma next time.

whewwwy i am pooped.

for the bees.

you are the bees knees if you go here:
http://www.burtsbees.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SeedUserInfo?catalogId=10051&storeId=10001&langId=-1

you will get free wildflower seeds from burts bees to keep the honeybees alive!

did you know buy buying, eating, + growing organic veggies are also helping the bees survive?

so maybe you are already helping then? good job! hooray. honeybees are fuzzy + cute + helpful buddies.

get your free seeds while they last.

from the burts bees website:

“Colony Collapse Disorder

Did you know that every third bite of food we eat depends on bees for pollination? You might not have given much thought to the role honeybees play in our ecosystem. But fact is, 30% of the fruit- and vegetable-producing plants we rely on to feed our families need honeybee pollination to thrive. That’s why the mysterious disappearance of honeybees known as Colony Collapse Disorder is a critical environmental issue that must be understood and reversed for The Greater Good ”

oh no! go plant some seeds and buy/plant organic veggies.

thanks

❀ bzzzzzzzz the honeybees

bzzzzzzzzzzzzz ❀

and we’re back.

what a crazy last few days.

gees.

we just got internets back in action.

we had a power outage on monday for about 7hrs (2ish-9ish).

you may recall it was about a zillion degrees that day. it was rough, but i am thankful because some are still without power! maybe summertime camping can be fun but…not in your own home when you have to go to work, school, etc in the morning. glen ridge train station has people camping out in it, at around midnight last night i saw people watching tv in there.

then the trains went nuts.

james had a difficult time get out of the city at night, and getting into the city in the morning, earlier this week. there was a fire on one line of the path train which in turn effected njtransit trains leaving penn station. decamp came to the rescue, and honored james’ njtransit rail pass too. after reading baristanet comments i guess he lucked out with a driver that decided to honor his real pass, some were not so lucky.

so lucky.

then we had a coo-coo storm.

from the montclair times website:

Jun 10, 2008
bullet Storm update
Posted: 11:40 p.m. 06/10/08

“A heavy storm system swept through Montclair this evening, leaving fallen tree branches and downed power lines throughout many local streets.

Following the heavy downpour, a large portion of the 4th Ward, south of Bloomfield Avenue, is shrouded in darkness.

According to Montclair firefighters, 33 intersections in town are blocked off due to fallen trees and power lines.

Other streets in town, including Grove Street and Glenridge Avenue, have no police presence despite downed power lines.

Montclair firefighters told The Times that a mutual aid request from the Bloomfield Fire Department was made after a school in Bloomfield caught on fire.

There are also several reports of flooding around town.

Read more Thursday in The Montclair Times”

apparently all these things were unrelated and not related to the heat wave. it sure felt like something bigger was making this week so bizarre and tiresome.

okay so here is to a chilled out though packed weekend.

(it took me two days to finish this post!?!?!?)
