Star Wars at OMSI


Posted on Oct 23, 2006

My husband and I took our nieces and nephews (and their parents) to OMSI this weekend.  They have a huge Star Wars exhibit right now.  Our family are huge Star Wars fans.  We all had a great time.  It did make for a long day.  There was just so much to see.  We were at OMSI for about 6 hours and we didn’t get to everything.  I really liked seeing Yoda.  There were tons of actual costumes...

My husband, the geek, is on the computer all the time.  In fact it’s amazing that I’m using it right now and he’s not.  I lovingly refer to our computer as ‘his other wife’.  He has the ablity to find the most unusual stuff during his hours of surfing the web.  He found these and wanted me to make them.  OK, that’s so not going to happen.  This are incredible.  How...

The Art of Looking Sideways

I think that I must have the best husband in the world.  He found this book ‘The Art of Looking Sideways‘, by Alan Fletcher and knew that I would love it.  He was right.  This is definitely a book that I will consume.  It makes you think outside of the box…which is where I prefer to be. At over a thousand pages, it’s definitely something that will take years to really read through.  I...

Last night I  got to see Ani DiFranco (one of my very favorite artists) play at the Aladdin Theater (my favorite venue).  The Aladdin is general admission and there were people camped out front in sleeping bags.  My friend and I got in line right around 5pm and the line was already almost a block long.  We did manage to get good seats, about 7 rows back. I had emailed the folks at Aladdin asking if I could bring a...
