The Immediacy of the Panic

It’s the weekend. I’m going to attempt to put all the big life stuff on the back burner and just relax (until the next panic attack hits). The little man and I got a good start yesterday. We went swimming, followed by a lovely lunch, where he surprised me by eating Udon noodles for the first time in ages, and then took in a repeat viewing of Cars.

I’m going to kick today off with a visit to the St. Paul Craftstravaganza, with Irish Girl. Meghan got me in the mood for the event by giving me a heads up on Chia Hats. And hello, if you go to the deluxe hat page they’ve got a photo of M.I.A. modeling one of those babies. Also on my radar, some super cute vegan-friendly shoes. Thankfully they don’t have my size, because I really shouldn’t be dropping $78 on shoes just now.

Bonus: Lake Phalen’s Dragon Festival is this weekend.
Plus: The gentleman Barrett Chase has given his site a lovely new look.
And: I created a profile at, but I need to participate in another social networking site like I need a hole in the head. Not to mention, the spelling bee nerd in me can’t get past the fact that there should be another m in the word consummating.
And another thing: There is now an odd tanline around my eyes, from wearing sunglasses outdoors, that makes me look like some sort of reverse raccoon. Sigh.


  1. ooh, you might need a chia hat. i might need one. in fact, i can think of five people off the top of my head who need one! too cute.

    wow. we were in sync. I started to sign up for this weekend too. but then it hit me — I do not need more shit to do, more people to meet, more places to go. I need less. what was I thinking?

    I promptly closed out of that window and moved on.

    PS–crafty people are weird. ;-)
