Waltzing Mathilda Wingnut


I HATE that shit~!

I had a nice LONG post written out and then it got eatten by the autosave and turned into vocabubarf!

As I was piucking up Mr. Gothric, I was accosted by an asshole at the Stoplight From Hell.

Mind is raining, grey, crappy, and dark.

This intersection SUCKS!!

In my rear-view mirror is a grey car without headlights on, and a terrified looking driver-boyfriend and his Psycho-Harpy in the passenger seat who is flipping me off.

WTF Bitch?!

I can count to One.


Psycho-Harpy GETS OUT OFF THE CAR to scream unintelligeble obscenities at my passenger side window, then gets back into the car to torture the poor guy driving with her insane shit.

I drive a Yaris.


Even if I wanted to listen to this crazy bitch's ranting I would have to climb across the seat to roll the window down to do it.

Uhhhh.... no.

To the Poor Bastard Driver:

Here is a little suggestion...

On a GREY day...kind of like TODAY, while driving IN THE RAIN, in your GREY CAR...oh...and while it happens to be GETTING DARK, you might...JUST MIGHT, mind you....think about one little thing, m'kay?



Grrrr....stupid photoloader....

I went on a cooking binge this weekend, as I often do.

This weekend I made both Lasagna and Chicken Noodle Soup (from scratch).

How Mr. Gothric and I aren't the size of two minivans I will never know...I can cook!

There are a few photos from the Lasagna-Porn series but Flickr and I seem to be at odds with each other.
Hmmm....I'll have to give this a little thought.

If I can make a wicked lasagna I can sure as hell figure out how to post my pictures of it!


Are you done yet??!, originally uploaded by st_gothric.

Boil, boil...toil and trouble...ooops...that's a different pot.

The filling is ready, now if only those noodles would HURRY UP!!
I NEVER use no-boil noodles in my lasagna.
What can I say?
I like it old-school.

10 more minutes to go.
My stomach is busily trying to devour my ribcage, it smells SO GOOD!!!

Supper Time!!

Silly Putty in Gravy

Nothing like typing a nice long post that is actually somewhat coherant and funny...then the computer decided to go "Ptewy!" and my post went to Mars...or wherever posts go that can never be found again.

Maybe that is what keeps the Mars Rover going way past its shelf-life.

It is running on mis-sent blog posts.

Every couple of months I get it into my head to spoil my cat.

He is an indoor beastie who gets dry food and whatever he can manage to beg from me since begging from Mr. Gothric gets him nowhere.

"I know..." says me, the Dumb Human, "I'll get him a couple of cans of tasty wet kitty food as a treat".

My cat can think into my brain.

He isn't quite as good at it as the last one was, but I know it wasn't MY mind that said, "You don't think I am going to EAT that crap, do you lady? It looks like Silly Putty in Gravy."

He was right.

It did.

He wouldn't even touch the gravy.

Mind you this cat eats pickles and olives...but wet cat food?


I can't say that I blame him.

He has been my trusted food testor for years.
If HE won't eat it then chances are I shouldn't either and I certainly wouldn't want ANY of that icky wet food! went into the trash and he gets actual REAL FOOD treats from me instead.

Anyone need a couple of cans of Silly Putty in Gravy?

Squiddyknit!, originally uploaded by st_gothric.

I finally figured out the squid pattern I was having so much trouble with.

Here is Mr. Gothric's Treo cozy....when it isn't devouring the Manikins.

Mmmm...tasty Manikins.

It really is an adorable little thing but MAN that pattern was a pain in the butt to figure out.
(Anticraft ladies, I love your ideas for the most part, but you REALLY need to work on how you write up your instructions.)

Oh...and the photo editor on Flickr is the friend of the cruddy digital picture myself.

Next project is the 3-Hour Sweater.
The pattern is from the 30's so it is an adventure as well.


I highly doubt that even though it is knitted on size 15 US needles, which is like knitting with logs to me.

I have been drooling over this brooch for months...and now it is on sale!

Got a goth you want to make giddy?

It is on sale for $3.99!!!

Myspace Part Two

After getting fed up with myspace and deleting my account about a month ago, I now find that for a few things, myspace has a purpose.

There are really only a few bands that I will cough up money to see, but if they come to town, I want to know.
Myspace is good for that.

I am still bummed that I missed Elvis Costello, but I will get over it.

Myspace also happens to be the one place that I can contact a couple of old friends who don't seem to go online anyplace else.

Live and learn.

I haven't been my usual talkative self as of late because I really just needed to take a break from everything.

I knit a will be coming soon.

"T-Bone Burnett has saved me more times than Jesus Christ...and that's a fact."

A great quote from a great friend.

I was thinking about that this morning as I drove through the raging downpour that is drowning the Bay Area with rain, trees, and hydroplaning cars.

This is one of those days that makes me really wish I didn't have to drive all the way back home because it is going to be a LONG, slow, drive.
Friday night is always a hellish drive home but sideways rain should make it a real adventure.

No worries...T-Bone will save my sanity.

All in all I would rather be at home with the cat, human, and a cup (vat) of tea.
