Tweets for the week of July 3rd

  • Found out Michael Jackson died in the Mac store. Didn’t believe it till we saw it on the BBC website too. Weird. #
  • Committing acts of recursion, feels like standing between two mirrors. Also, no, MJ didn’t die in the Mac store. #
  • Really like teaching people to knit. Also seeing someone realise the value of a lifeline when they dropped a stitch down multiple rows. #
  • Laclede Gas said our appointment would be between 8 and 12. Their guy turned up at 11:57. #
  • Fascinated with Gordon Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares. Does the restaurant ever end up succeeding? #
  • Halfway through techniques for my purple belt! And we get to spar next week. Yay! #
  • Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Rime of the Ancient Mariner, "Instead of the cross, the Albatross About my neck was hung." #
  • Curious: what kind of lady drives a big black SUV with a "Gangster Grandma" sticker in the back window? Would love to meet her. #
  • Cannot believe how fast the birdseed is getting eaten, they will be too fat to fly at this rate! Feeder emptied in 2 days flat. #


  1. I used to go to tracy’s in st. louis and I know karen very well. I was bored today, and googled blogs that mentioned Tracy’s, and yours came up.

    Congratulations on getting to spar soon!

    Sparring was always my favorite thing about karate. I know the gear is hot and uncomfortable, but you quickly get used to it in a month or two.

    I will be moving back to St. Louis from California at the beginning of september, so I hope to meet you then!
