I just got done watching a Gilmore Girls episode where Rory gives Lorelai endless shit over having a Barry Manilow CD hidden under the driver’s seat. And I was transported back to my childhood, when one of my favorite albums (vinyl, even!) was this one Barry Manilow album, This One’s For You. If we’d had parrots instead of parakeets, the things would’ve ended up being able to sing every single song. I nearly wore that record out.
Here’s a bit of Frivolous Friday fun with flowers! Aoife came at the exact right time of year. Springtime in Seattle is filled with blooms: it seems like absolutely everything wants to put on a display. Even on a short walk around the neighborhood, you can see thousands of lovely blooms in all shades. These delicate pink stars were falling over a fence, and so we of course had to stop to get a closer look.
I just had the best two days, my darlings! Our own Aoife took some time during her American vacation to come see us in Seattle. She’s a perfect delight. If she ever mentions she may want to come see you, say yes. You’ll never regret it.
We spent her first evening here having a lovely dinner with Funny Diva, who made sure we were well-fed and had a wonderful time.

Dean comes out of the station with some junk for breakfast. We find out Dean and his father have been surviving on fraudulent credit cards. We also find out Dean’s music collection is pretty much nothing but classic rock cassettes.
What a jerk

Ah, the arguments over music and names begin.
I love how he’s always trying to get Dean to treat him like an adult, but it never really works.
I’ve got a guest from out-of-country, so I haven’t got much time for posting today. Instead of throwing a link and a promise at you, I thought we might do some thinking on how to change the world. What if it were in your power to make three major changes to the world as it is? What would those changes be?
Zeroth has added some insightful notes on the use of light and shadow in Supernatural’s pilot episode. I’ve updated our inaugural post to include his remarks, but for those who already read it through and just want to get straight to the new stuff, here you go:
All righty. I’ve been working on various perks and extras I can offer to my dearly-beloved donors. I think I’ve got some fairly decent stuff going, but if you can think of additional perks, I’ll be glad to add them. Here’s what I’ve got so far: Continue reading “What Kind of Perks Would You Like?”→
