Is Harry a Horcrux?

30 June, 2007 // 0 Comments

21 days and counting, kids. I hope you’ve reserved your copy at a local independent bookstore, and if you’re in Mendo, I’ll see you at Gallery Bookshop! (They’re having a pajama and movie party, for anyone local who ...

Oink

For some reason, this story sprang to mind today, although it happened some time ago. One evening, I was walking along Main Street when a very jacked up car filled with ruffians drove by. As they passed me, the windows went down and the men started ...

Locavoracious

I headed over to the farmers’ market on time yesterday, for a change, and picked up a bunch of awesome food. As I drifted around, I thought about various meals that I might want to make, and I ended up assembling the perfect ingredients for ...

Living on the Dry Side

“Now,” she says, “what kind of cocktail can I get you?” I was already ill at ease at the party. A huge group of people I didn’t know, all dressed far more formally than I was, with thin legs and flat stomachs, looking ...

On Swimming

I have a confession. I can’t really swim. I know, I’ve been writing all these posts about going to the river, and I might have one up sometime soon about the Great Ocean Adventure, but I can’t really swim. I splash around, for ...

Sweetwater

A friend and I decided to go to Sweetwater last night, pretty much on a whim. The awesome thing about open public tubs is that you can do that, so we trundled on down the road to Mendocino in the evening to see what there was to be seen. He had ...

Evan Almighty

We went to see Evan Almighty last night, and I must say, it was a rather enjoyable film. And so was the preview for Order of the Phoenix that ran before it… Although the movie clearly reads as a spinoff of Bruce Almighty, I think that it also ...

Jubilation

23 June, 2007 // 0 Comments

I woke up grumpy this morning, mean as a snake sizzling across hot pavement. Sometimes it happens. I’m not really sure why. It’s not just waking up on the wrong side of the bed, it’s waking up on the wrong side of life. I’ve ...

Sights of Fort Bragg

22 June, 2007 // 0 Comments

Wandering Fort Bragg to pay my PG&E bill yesterday, I saw all sorts of neat things. I mean, I didn’t really wander to pay the bill, I know where the PG&E customer service center is, and it was a fairly straight shot. But it was such ...

30 Days

Exactly one month from now, I will be done with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, having snagged it at midnight from a local independent bookstore* and stayed up reading until I was done. I am both excited and sort of sad. I first met Harry ...
