Mi Vida Loca (Little Dude Edition)


So...for reasons I won't begin to bother you with, my sleep schedule the last few days has been totally messed up. Sunday I fell asleep at like 2PM, and woke up 4AM Monday. I was up again at 3AM today.

Honestly, I kind of like having the mornings to myself. It's quiet, the sun isn't up so it's only, like 100 degrees, there might even be a breeze, the hummingbirds haven't started their daily Hatfield vs McCoy war yet. It's peaceful. And as you can probably tell, I like to spend my peaceful mornings outside.

Ok, so a quick tangent. We have a sliding glass door that leads from the kitchen to the patio. And we have this uberly awesome, hi tech nerderific security system in the form of a sawed off broom handle that sits in the door track. Ain't no one getting in that door.

Seriously. Including me.

So it's like 5AM. I hear Pablo running around inside chasing Chica, or Pablo tumbleweeds, or shadows, who knows, he's crazy. And the kitchen is tiled, so he slides around a lot, and the rug by the door is always upside down or sideways. And so he goes running and I guess he hit the rug and went sliding because the next thing I hear is him crashing into the door. So I get up to go inside and you know what happened right?

Yeah, this happened.

I stood there for a good three minutes just like: Aw hell no, really? I just got locked out of my own house by my own cat?

And then I was like, well no, he's The Crandall's cat, which kinda explains everything about him you need to know.

Hi, remember me?

Ok first, I'm sorry about that Paul Anka thing. I just want you to know that today when I found a 10 minute video of a dude playing Bohemian Rhapsody on ukulele, I didn't post it. (Oops.)

In any case, it's been a busy month. I've been working on 4 new sites, getting root canals and crowns, going to birthday parties, and not going to San Francisco. As it turns out that was probably for the best, but I am kinda bummed that I won't get to see the Stein exhibit at SFMOMA

You know what I haven't done in over a month? COOKED. Partly it's been way too hot, and partly I've been way too busy. But in a couple weeks I'm off to LA to see BFF Kate and I think the plan is to tackle some new fillings for the insanely awesome broccoli ginger dumplings I made for a party last month and apparently never told you about.

Om nom nom nom

Anyway, that's where I've been. How are you?

PS: If you really need to get me back for Paul Anka, I totally understand.
