Random Random Random

25 Jul

I used to have a friend named Random..We called him Rand for short.  He hopped trains from California to Bellingham and then just stayed. I wonder where he is now?

Speaking of hopping trains, have you ever watched the Journey of Natty Gann?  It was one of my favorites as a child and we watched it last night.  After ten mintues, N walked out of the room.  At the end of the movie, S proclaimed it “the worst movie he had ever seen in his life”

I reluctantly saw Toy Story Part III this weekend during which I realized that I watched the orignial Toy Story with an old boyfriend, his mother, and little brother —close to 15 years ago. Is that possible?

I found the baby doll particularly creepy and realized we have an identical one in the closet.  I would donate it but now I am worried about what its fate may be.  I wish I had an attic.

Did I tell you about our new puppy?  I will…but in the meantime–here are some photos:

Right now, her name is Sushi.  Although, I am wishing we could name her Dora.  No one else likes that name.  Sushi and Maggie are best friends forever.

I heart Vietnamese food.  I wonder if I could make Pho?  Or summer rolls?  My sister-in-law wrote a Vietnamese Cookbook.  I wonder if she could help?

This is my dream kitchen!  Someone please tell me what I need to do to get this kitchen!  I’m getting desperate……my countertops are killing me.  My cupboards are falling apart.  I have no room for a wire whisk—please send help!  No, seriously, I need to figure out how to upgrade my kitchen as soon as possible.  Any ideas?

Florida may not have the beautiful mountains of Washington State or the culture and spirit of the Aloha State—but, the weather is incredible.  This storm (the remnants of Tropical Storm Bonnie) interrupted our beach day but provided great entertainment for the drive home.  Amazing!

N poses as Rapunzel—-she fashioned a nice long braid out of a scarf and wants to wear it everywhere.  Last night, she even wanted to cuddle her braid as she slept.

S trying to cross his eyes at dinner.  Yay! for iphone cameras in restaurants!  How else do these kids keep themselves occupied while waiting for their food?  Good times.

I am off to San Fransisco tomorrow and am excited to eat some good food (Chez Panisse, I hope), run in the cool air, and be in a real city.  Will keep you posted and in the meantime, let me know what I need to do for that kitchen.

    Karla-I love reading your blog! You are such a witty and entertaining writer, and you have a way of making your cooking adventures sound doable (although I’ve yet to get the courage to try any). When your first cookbook comes out you’ll have to sign my copy!

      Thanks Theresa! I love writing it—-it is a creative outlet for me……You remember Rand, right? Any idea what happened to him?

        I do remember Rand..unlike most kids whom I hear updates on once in awhile I’ve not hear anything about him.
        Sidenote:the show-off is no more-it was demolished & something new is being built there.
