Colour Junkie, originally uploaded by kaphine.

I’ve uploaded a batch of new items to my Etsy store, www.colourjunkie.etsy.com.

In addition to the original cotton Purses for Change, we have a couple made of recycled baby alpaca wool. Check ‘em out and tell your friends.

Remember, through October, a donation to Barack Obama’s campaign will be made for each Purse for Change sold.

Colour Junkie

Sep. 22nd, 2008 | 09:12 am

Now through October 31, Colour Junkie will feature Purses for Change, supporting the Barack Obama Presidential Campaign. For each $10, zippered change purse sold, Colour Junkie will donate $2.50 to the Obama campaign, and a kind donor has pledged to match our donations for the first 40 Purses for Change sold.

That means when you purchase one of our Purses for Change, Barack Obama will be $5 closer to the White House, and we'll all be $5 closer to a more open, accountable government.

Colour Junkie accessories are all one-of-a-kind and hand made by J. L. Woodward in Boston, Massachusetts.

Please check out www.colourjunkie.etsy.com.

I'm having a lot of fun with Ernie (http://www.flickr.com/groups/globetrottingernie/). The weather was great today, so the little one and I headed out. After running around the Public Garden, she's settled down quickly for an afternoon nap.

Unmotorized Vehicle

Great bike ride today on the Assabet River Rail Trail (http://www.arrtinc.org). I'm a huge fan of Rails-to-Trails.

Anyway, right now I'm hosting an Ernie Pez dispenser that's been around the world for a Flickr group called Globetrotting Ernie (http://www.flickr.com/groups/globetrottingernie/). He flew in from Spain, and I just picked him up on Saturday morning. I'll be making a point of getting him out and documenting his travels.

Mount Hood Road Index 2.0

May. 26th, 2008 | 10:35 pm

kaphine's endocrinologist said to her, "Young women don't die of thyroid problems. They get annoyed by thyroid problems." Some of you already know the rest of the story behind this, and for those of you who don't, we will tell you the details next time we see you or talk to you...

Older Asian gentleman talking to two young white women, at the foot of an apartment building in Cleveland Circle: "I wash women's hair!" That's all we heard of the conversation, as we were just walking by, but it was an odd thing to overhear, and it's hard to imagine what the context for the rest of the conversation would have been.

Took ourselves on a date night, after last weekend's crankiness. Went to Oleanna, which has really amazing food and a swanky by laid back atmosphere. Highly recommended. Also, we enjoyed Shabbat dinner on our deck, and had Indian food and beer with a friend on our deck another night. Yay for summer. It's finally here.

Spent our Memorial Day taking the T down to the Boston harbor, where we hopped a ferry and went out to Spectacle Island, which was beautiful and just the right kind of getaway. Can't believe it's taken us so long to discover the harbor islands. We're totally going back. Also, we watched the entire Indiana Jones series on DVD and took in the newest one this weekend. By the way, in case you don't remember this, the second movie sucked. It should be called Temple of Shit. But the others were fun.

Yarn. Irish accents. Good beer. Salty sweets. Chocolate. Not having to sit in traffic on holiday weekends. The escapist qualities of explosion movies. realsupergirl's parents. Our friends. Each other.

Stir Crazy

May. 23rd, 2008 | 12:16 pm

I'm feeling completely stir crazy today. The Little One is having a great nap, and I should be grateful, but I'm just so ready to get out of the house and get out of my own head. I don't want to wait for more information I want it now. I gotta get out.
