accordion santa


Yesterday I was walking down Wickenden street (having stuck up a bunch of posters) and was in front of Tokyo Restaurant when a guy parked and ran across the street towards me. "Hey, you!" he shouted.

I looked around but nobody else was nearby; apparently he was talking to me. "Huh?" I said.

"Does that place sell liquor?" he asked me urgently.

"What?" I responded.

"Tokyo -- does it sell liquor?"

I thought for a minute. I've eaten at Tokyo a few times, but I don't drink as a rule, so I wasn't sure. "Sorry, I don't know," I said. He nodded and ducked inside, presumably to ask someone who actually worked there and was not just randomly walking past it.

MC Copulation in the house

djswifty is performing as MC Copulation at AS220 tonight. It should be pretty great!

The problem is that I'm not sure when he goes on. The show starts at 9 pm but there are two other acts, so he might start as early as 9 or as late as 11 or so.

I'm planning to go and stick it out regardless, so if you're interested in going but only if he's on early then feel free to give me a call a little before 9 pm to find out what's up -- or if you want you can comment here and ask me to call you.

It should be a hell of a show!

yarn use

Not too long ago I ordered seven 400-yard skeins of denim yarn for cheap. Then they arrived and I had to figure out what to do with them. Finally I decided that knitting a small blanket (using a Debbie Bliss Pattern) would get rid of a decent chunk of it and would leave me with something nice and useful, to whit: a small blanket.

A couple of weeks later I've been knitting up a storm, although there is still plenty left to do. But it only occurred to me this morning that I could get an idea of how much of the skein I'd used by comparing it to one of the other skeins.
