There's always something else

There’s always something else

Well, my new Texas driver’s license says that I am offi­cial­ly a res­i­dent. It’s nice to be back to read­ing a paper each morn­ing, includ­ing the cross­word in a lan­guage where I stand a chance. Sun­days seem to just dis­ap­pear into the big ones. Still, I didn’t expect it to be like this… What is a Chi­wee­nie? Oh dear lord. Then I googled it....
Well now, that's a bit different

Well now, that’s a bit different

I start­ed edit­ing the pics I took of all my stuff while pack­ing, but they still throw me into a bit of a pan­ic attack, even know­ing that every­thing fit and all the trav­els went smooth­ly. So, in the mean­time… Ewok dog makes a great tem­po­rary sub­sti­tute for my cat. And now, onward to the job hunt! (With a few...
Just hiding out for a few days

Just hiding out for a few days

Qui­et hol­i­days and New Year’s, but now there are plen­ty of things in the works. So, I’m keep­ing my head down, fin­ish­ing up a whole bunch of stuff, and doing some light cat-sit­ting in the mean­while. More soon. Much more, very soon. Hap­py New Year and all that.
I think I've been spotted...

I think I’ve been spotted…

Maybe I can just blend into the scenery… What if I smile like this? Or is that creepy? Ah geez, I’m going to end up stuffed on somebody’s side table like Uncle George. Aren’t I now… I’m just work­ing on a bit of this and that, so noth­ing so inter­est­ing to report. How­ev­er, I am con­stant­ly pick­ing up dec­o­rat­ing tips...
From the "Why did it take me so long?" files

From the “Why did it take me so long?” files

Why did it take me a year and a half to real­ize that the fruit sal­ad I’ve been watch­ing the juice lady across the street make is (1) awe­some and (2) 15 pesos (US$1.20)? As lunch, this real­ly helped pull my day togeth­er. Today was a fruit, yogurt, and ama­ranth day (but gra­nola and hon­ey are also options). ...
Nice to have a few days at home

Nice to have a few days at home

After keep­ing my fridge most­ly emp­ty for the past month while I have been trav­el­ing every few days, it is nice to be able to go to the local mar­ket to restock. The scene can get a bit wild on the week­ends, and I final­ly had the courage to sneak a bunch of pho­tos with my iPod. Now if...
The waiting game

The waiting game

Some­times the light is just so beau­ti­ful in the morn­ing.
Birds of my Neighborhood

Birds of my Neighborhood

You’ve already met the cat that stalks them or dreams of stalk­ing them, so now it’s time to give some atten­tion to the birds that hang around my neigh­bor­hood. Main­ly, it was just real­ly nice on my ter­race the oth­er evening, so I decid­ed to hang out there for a while and take some pics. There are...
Critical Mass in Mexico

Critical Mass in Mexico

Or, as it is known here, Saca la Bici. It pass­es my win­dow every Wednes­day evening and I often watch them go with­out my cam­era. Final­ly I more than just got off my duff to stick myself and my cam­era out the win­dow. Now I just need a bicy­cle to join them.  
In like a lion

In like a lion

How’s about I like lyin’ in my bas­ket. haha­ha­ha­ha­ha. No seri­ous­ly, I had a request for more cat pics. I swear.
The problem when it's not your camera...

The problem when it’s not your camera…

… is that you don’t have any of the pic­tures to work with after the trip is over. Instead, I’m at the whim of my guy to choose and send me some. Still, what is worse is arriv­ing home at 11:30pm to an apart­ment where the pow­er has been cut because the pow­er bill did...
