Tid Bits

I haven't had a lot of cake action recently, which I'm, admittedly, a little grateful for because the free time has allowed me to do all the doctor appointments and various other things I've been wanting to do for months. I have a gorgeous new art project that's about to go up on my other blog. I've written a bunch of reviews that my other gig has been asking me to get to. For copyright reasons, I was told I couldn't publish them on my own, which is fine because it was getting a little redundant anyway.

I figured I would do a little update.

On tonight's "Long Island Medium" episode, she went out to Sky Dive Long Island, where my buddy Margaret and I did our Dirty 30 Jump during our year of Firsts. Let me just say right now that I don't subscribe to the whole medium/psychic thing. I'm sure there are people out there who are a lot more sensitive to the supernatural world beyond what we mortals can see and hear, but I doubt that those people would be charging whatever it is most of these people charge per hour.

With that being said, Margaret texted me to tell me to watch tonight because they were filming at our Sky Dive spot AND the restaurant out there that we went to a couple of times. She wanted me to see if they filmed anyone we knew. Well, as luck would have it, Margaret's tandem jumper Duncan was on the show and he was strapped to the psychic's husband's back. We didn't know anyone from the restaurant but we recognized the place well enough and she ended up doing a reading on the general manager rather than the actual restaurant.

Anyway, here are some blasts from the pasts to brighten up a sullen Sunday night:

Margaret and Duncan
Me & Willie (this because my free-fallin' shot is over done)
Two of the happiest people on the planet!!

 Goddammit it; look how skinny I was!!!!!

Speaking of Margaret, I was always talking to her about this Indie flick I caught one night at 3am. I had missed the beginning, but I saw most of the movie and found it one of the most thought-provoking, insightful movies I have ever seen. Talk about a rollercoaster shitstorm! Anyway, if you're every bored and want a good recommendation, go torrent "The Guitar". It's fucking awesome but in a quiet understated way.

It took me nearly 3 years to find the name. I got lucky tonight and stumbled on it. =)


  1. Katniss you're really very striking when you're happy. I'm gonna try to find this movie tonight. Naked woman & guitar- done!!!

    1. It's a really good movie. I just dl'ed the torrent. I haven't had a chance to watch it again yet. I know you asked before but I haven't finished editing my post for the canvas I just finished. Later tonight for sure.

  2. That looks like fun! Someday, I'd love to do that. I miss Margaret!

    1. I miss Margaret, too. If I had my own place that she could come and crash at, she could visit more often. You all will just have to come visit me once I'm settled in WA. =)

  3. Yes we will! That will be so fun! I haven't been to Seattle but I've been to Spokane.

  4. Hurrah! I will totally come visit you too. I haven't travelled for fun since... 2006! I liked St. Cloud and South Dakota but those were school/internship trips. I would love a vacation and to go someplace different.
