Last Day of November

My goodness the year had gone by quick. This has been one hell of a year too. OMG has it been. 2.5 weeks of school left, just a few short weeks before Christmas and New Years and my loooong winters break, where I shall be bored and broke out of my mind. Maybe I can pick up a side job. Who knows. I hope all is going well for you reading this too.

The pets are good, I still owe a long over due picture update of everyone and the house. :) Also will have to update with school projects of the not just media type ;)

Ok back to homework!

Happy Thanksgiving!

For your enjoyment, my family dressing recipe, because "stuffing is evil"- Alton Brown.

Turkey and Turkey Dressing from Gram Freitas, Bon Appetit, Dorothy Hare 1959 dressing recipe and Nancy Freitas Fischer.

Turkey Dressing:

Make a recipe of cornbread the day ahead of time. I use jiffy package – quick and easy.
Boil the giblets, neck and whatever organs you want in water to equal cups of broth (or you can use stock .. like TJ chicken stock in a box)
Break up the corn bread and mix into the dry bread cubes
Beat the eggs, melt the butter, chop the veggies and olives
For a 10 – 12 # turkey use 1 qt dry bread cubes

Add 3 beaten eggs
1 C chopped onion
¼ c melted butter
2 cups buttermilk
Add ¼ teaspoon pepper
1 ½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
½ Sage (3 X more if using fresh)
Add 1 ½ cups of broth * (when mixed the dressing should be moist, if not add more broth or buttermilk)
½ - 1 cup of diced celery
1 c sliced fresh mushrooms
sliced olives

Bake in a sprayed casserole ~ 30 minutes until internal temp 165 degrees. Check to be sure at 15 minutes that it’s not too dry.

Shortcut: Stovetop cornbread stuffing mix. Saute the onion mushrooms and celery. Usually you don’t have to add seasoning, but taste it.

A little homage to Ansel Adams and his Studebaker. My colorize a photo project. Trying to figure out holiday things while staying on top of homework. Started carving a character head, a zombie dog that haunts my dreams in time of stress. Also have a still life with my unicorn, Gary.

Im fighting a cold, its that time of year. Its trying to get into my lungs which scares me immensly. Arg!!!

Got some new and trandy things shopping with Fashion Rachel and Brandi. It was tons of fun! Look at me, turning into a girl. Last week also I went to visit Tim at his art show!! Yay! Its still up at the Blue Cue, so go and see the spatter paintings. We also walked around, ate hot wings and bought adorable chinese toys and got thrown out of Level Up by Dann-o! Oh SacTown.

What are you up to?

school. its drowning me. As it should, as its supposed to. Flipped my lid over a self portrait. Sorry updates have been so spotty, my source of interwebs (corporate coffee shop) is under renovation. This needs to be fixed as I need me some podcasts!!! lol.

Just a few more weeks untill the semester is out! I need to kick it up a notch and get some good work done. I dont want to get nothing out of this semester :( Sometimes I just feel like a total failier.

Bob Ross is colored.

Also, rememberance of summer 2010

Midterms are Here

I finished really none of them... I have a drapery drawing I "finished" but need touching up for final critique on tues, a portfolio review and self portrait head shots for referance due monday, The project that will break my soul if I let Earl down due thursday and the second half of Bob Ross (coloring the elements) Due Fri. And yet Im not panicing... Im instead surfing the interwebs and downloading podcasts... ?

Whats going?

I dunno, but I'll take it. Still batting zero on the attepting to get a date thing, but after a mini melt down with a great friend I feel better about it. lol. Weird.

Pets are all well. Life is so nice without work. My god its so nice.... I would be in full blown panic attack if I were still there. Also, Halloween costume aquired, Hurrah!!

This no interwebs thing...

I tried to post a few days ago from corporate coffee shop, and it failed, but I didnt know until just now. DUMB. So Midterms are here, and Im managing my time well enough, but its still so much work. Its also really hard watching my friends drown in work :(

The cats were REALLY horrible and have now gone back to good.. for the moment. I need to find a good book on cat psychology. Things are weird and I cant keep going like this. The never knowing if they have pee'd all over or been adorable all day is killing me.

Ill post a tandori chicken recipe soon, yummo! and not to hard!

Oh, I quit corporate petshop. it was horrific

Soup and School

School is awesome.. and kicking my ass. I know I already covered this, but WOW. And its not even that bad yet. ugh. I need to get my schedual under control. I need toget my house together. And people need to leave me the hell alone. Some fellow students who dont speak english just pushed my purse out of the way to sit at my table, without asking.... ugh. But to keep my mind and stomach in check i made 17 bean and barley soup!!

1 lbs 17 beans and barleys
1 can of stewed tomatoes
4 cups water
4 tsp chicken bullion
1 cup peppers (bell or pablanos like i used)
1 jalapeno
1 cup carrots
1 cup string beans chopped
any other things in your fridge

Soak beans. Throw into a crockpot, cook on low for 6-10 hours, when ever they are soft. Super yummy and filling!!

Cranes are coming along :)

Neglecting the blog again

Sorry all, (ha!) its been insanity this past week! School is kicking into high gear and i need to kick in with it. I will soon FINALY have interwebs at my house and then updates with good pictures will be abundant!

School is sooooooo amazing. This week I-

am making a sculpture to scale of a human
am analyzing the light and shadow of fabric folds
am creating a character to present to the class
met Scott Campbell!!!
bought Scotts book
Got Scotts book autographed
went to a book launch party
made new friends
ate amazing cheeseburgers
Got a copy of Korgi
had 2 game nights
did epic amounts of homework
managed to not murder corporate petshop employees

So all is well. Kitler chewed on my sharp knife and cut himself, letting me come home to a spattering of blood and panicing.

I am also atemping to make 1000 cranes for some good luck. You should too, they are adorable

Friday, September 16, 2011

So work... is... Work. Lol! This corporate petshop isn't nearly as up and up as my Dearnborn store. What does this mean? This means that an already mind numbing, annoying, potentially postal-style job becomes another level frustrating. If the other corporate petstore hires me Im out like a cat in a tub. And if you have ever tried to wash cats you know....

So I really dont have any updates of my drawn works, but here is my self portrait for Digital Media. Let me note that I HATE having my picture taken. I hate the way I look, stand, compose myself, everything. I dont want reminders unless its in a distracting place like Zion National Park.. (Outdated pictures will come at some point). So here it is:

Im excited about the way it turned out. And I really enjoyed the class reaction to it today. This weeks homework is going to be tougher. Im suppose to use a model, but I think everyone is busy so I may be shooting one of the Breyers (Beautiful toy horses I collected at the age of 10-24). Or one of nana's dolls. Either way.

I see naked people

All the time... lol! Welcome to art school. 3 out of 4 of my classes involve naked people. Keeps things interesting. Still no interwebs in the homeland, but corporate coffee shop is allowing me to abuse them. And abuse I shall.

Pets are good. Kitler is a pain in the ass, especially when he drags his duck wings all over the damn house, sleeps on the gerbil tank and crawls in the sink. Pickles is a good boy, both are eating up a storm as of late. Giblet is also good. I need to let him out more, he has to be bored. Crabs are crabs, eatin banana today. Fish are all fine, Swimmy keeps eating his tail though. :[ gatta figure out why THAT is.

So good news, IM EMPLOYED! Once again corporate Petshop has hired me. Annoyingly at Detroit wage... grrr..... oh well. Ill get a better job soon, but for now it will give me a bit of breathing room.

Im to tired to do much reporting... blah

Happy Labor Day!!

Are you laboring away? lol. For possibly the 2nd time in my entire life I have been invited to a Labor day BBQ. Its at my Aunt's, but thats even better :)

Had a fantastic weekend. So Daiko Chinese resterant is FABULOUS!! The service is abrupt, but the food is MORE then worth it, and it will be my new place. Also, Mel-O-Dee's Lounge is a great place for Karaoke!! And Elevation 66 has a fantastic brew, Esther Vanilla Stout which every good beer drinker must try.

Also saw The Help. Go see it. NOW. I think I'm a Emma Stone fan. I keep wanting to hate her, because she comes from a generation of actresses that SUCK, but she keeps amazing me over and over. Plus I had that one dream... lol, nm! But the movie is great, I will never EVER look at chocolate pie the same way again.

So life is getting better. I tried to upload the road trip pictures but again the Corporate Coffee shop internet is to chocked out to work. But soon I will have my interwebs back and I can regail you all with tales of my adventure cross country, yet again. Plus oblogatory cat pictures, as well as gerbil update, hermit crab stories, plant tales and fish stuff. maybe I will do a once a week house hold update. That would work....

Plus more recipes! Coming soon.. I made apple butter, wanna try the scratch and sniff on your screen?

Never to Early for the Holiday Season...

Ugh... Its a few short weeks until everyone I know and love will turn into lunatics, and I will be broke, ha, broker. So I decided to be proactive. Since no one I know or love reads this, I can share it with my followers...err... myself. lol. So since I have many many MANY peppers from my lovely sister and her garden I am going to be making pickled peppercini's, with apples from my Aunts tree that is over flowing, I am attepting apple butter (with the help of my beloved crockpot, oh crockpot, love of my life) and back by popular demand, pickled carrots! So why all this pickling? isnt pickling hard? What about botulism? Let me answer all of this loves.

These are refridgerator pickles, so I dont have to worry so much about scary things growing in them. also, applebutter? Freezer fodder till holidays hit :) And for all my pickled things, Im using the same basic brine:

2C Vinager (they suggest apple cider but I used white last year and it was great)
2C water
1/4C White Sugar
1.5 tsp salt

bring it to a boil, and place the vegi's into the jars, along with herbs and spices. This is great so I can flavor each jar seperatly! Pour boiling brine over vegi's, let cool and store in the fridge until yummy.

Its really easy. I bought like 20 mason jars last year for like $10, the little ones (which are cuter for gifts!) and will again this year. Also, I have been saving cute salsa and fruit jars, and picked some masons up from my neighbor. Nice ;)

So school started on Thursday. Its going to be sooooo good for me. Im ready to get my ass kicked!

And yes, pictures are coming, its just hard when Im updating from Corporate coffee shop.

Ohh! I have started a little challenge! Im going to attept to DRAW every day for one year. In my little sketch book... So this isnt going to include the massive amounts of drawing I will be doing at school. I have tried to do this before and always fail.. I may fail now... But maybe I wont ;)

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

And so it is (a little explicit)

Yesterday was the real orientation for school. Meet the President, thank you for your money, get excited, see cheereaders (at art school? oh my) get excited, draw things, get excited, Charlie Brown, Star wars, get excited, harry potter, blah blah blah...

Oh ya, Im an Urban Knight. Oh Detroit dont shun me please.

But I DID get to meet the head of my department. Yay!! and I got supply lists, got to see Fashion Rachel, (Double Yay!!) see Cory (tripple yay!!) and remember why I dont live in dorms (Uberist yay ever!!!!) School starts tomorrow. Holy Cows.

Still no job. Corporate Petshop is evil and the manager out here can kiss my happy white ass. Jerking me around, bah! I'll get all ghettoblaster on him. lol. Not really, I'll write a strongly worded email to corporate and apply for other jobs. Im a weinie...

Anywho, pictures are coming from the trip, plus stories of stories of stories... Cats are good, Herman is king and Cooper is still as fuzzy and incoherant as ever. Most of my lovely plants didnt make the trip, but the green spidey did, aloe vera wang, and the chicken farm are doing nice. I also have some spideys from Joanne, which are from a 30 year old plant from her oldest son's memorial... memorial spideys!! Their feisty buggers too. Pictures are coming. And Im terrible and got a goldfish. A little humpbacked Ranchu who is too cute for words. He will have a 10 gallon soon, and grow to be a beast!! mwahahaha!!!

Ok, so back to school stuff. My school has free buses for me around the city. Also, free workshops, free exercise and who knows what else! Well, not free, part of my ungodly tuition I'll be paying off for the rest of my eternity. I plan on taking advantage of as much as possible. I wanna be hot, fit, smart and oh so talented. Also, kinda thinking about Viola lessions.... Prolly not, but OMG it would be awesome.

BTW, check out and see what I live off of, aka my food bible. This gal rocks.

Move complete!

I have now been in Richmond for a week and a half! Hurrah! I let Castor survive, lol, and everyone looks good. Ill post the whole adventure soon. :)

Wednesday, August 10, 2011


Finished over at the Piquat Museum. Its bitter sweet, on one hand its done and Im free, but I like working over there. Of course I had a very awkward moment when one of the head people came up to me and mentioned the job was supposed to be done by June. oops. Oh well, I had no idea. But my side is DONE!

Made another chicken in the crock pot! Super easy:

Chop potatoes, carrots, celery, onions and half a bell pepper (I used orange) and toss in pot. Cover one chicken in cajun seasoning. toss in the pot. Put Crock on low for 7-9 hours. Inhale. :) OMG I love the crock pot!!! I also made this last night:

All I can say is, YUM. Holy crap yum. And good with soy milk even! (Vanilla Soy, lol) Make this soup. Now.

I have been on an Adam Carolla riff for the past few days. Just obsessed with the pod cast. so many hours of podcasts!!! lol

A dinner to remember

I dont have any pictures, but last night was a great night. Firstly, I am currently unemployed! Saturday was the last day at Passport and Yesterday was the last day at corporate pet shop. Sad, but also good. I came home, and threw a chicken in the crockpot. (The lemon pepper chicken posted below) Some beets the the oven for Everything Salad and took a nap. lol. After getting up, cleaning and putting on clothes (in that order) I prepared for guests!!

Alix came first, then Greg and John from Mantra. We ate, drank (Porter, YUMMO!!) and made fun of the pets. Castor was a ham, and showed off the whole time. I let Cooper out in his ball and him and Castor played chase and generaly were adorable. Everything went so well. We listened to Justin Farren and laughed and laughed for hours. Such a good night.

Im finally packing up for the move. Everything is going down to Toledo to get shipped, and only the bare essentials are going in the car. Im meloncholy about the whole thing. I want to be back in California so bad, but Im going to miss this place like hell. Detroit is like no other place on Earth.

Untidy Abroad!

So yesterday I did it! I packed up the car and drove to Niagra Falls!! This involved cutting through Ontario Canada. I drove up to port Huron (thanks AGAIN google maps, add an hour) And when I got to the check point I apparently am the fave of terrorism, as they searched me and my car, for an HOUR. And gave me attitude. They couldn't believe I wasnt meeting someone. Anywho, after Darlene's invasion of privicy (ooowww, they saw my empty Dr Pepper cans) we headed out!

I ended up arriving around 4:30, got swindled by an exchange place, and headed over to the falls. Wow, its one of the most beautiful things on the planet, easy. I took the Maid of the Mist boat tour, and the walk behind the falls. I want to do the whirl pool tour one day. The City of Niagra, Canada (sister city is Niagra, New York) is like a mini Vegas without gambling. :) Very cute. My favorite was a building that was 1/2 burger king and 1/2 haunted house, with a Frankenstiens monster eating a burger on the roof. :)

Ulta trip!

So I am not a typical girly girl as we know. But that doesnt mean I dont love some girly things! I decided yesterday that since I am entering this new section of my life, I will be needing to update my look a bit. I want to be a little sassier and have the loo to match. I went over to Ulta to pick up a little eye shadow quad. For those who dont know I ADORE eye shadow and nail polish. And since Im broke I thought this is a super easy way to brighten my life up a touch :).

I got an ULTA brand eye shadow quad, Girls Night Out, which is a set of cute purples (brown eyes go GREAT with purples) and a fantastic nail color, ruby slippers (not the fab China Glaze one I will be getting again, but the ulta one, which is really cute too)

When I went up to pay for my $19 purchase I was informed I qualified for a free gift, a CRAZY awesome pack!! 13 piece gift set! I picked wild, since I am here to change my look (I wanted the natural a lot too)

It has 2 eye shadow quads, 2 lip liners, 2 eye liners, a mascara, lipstick, 2 lip glosses, 3 brushes and a nail polish! Plus a cute fuzzy bag. So woot!!

I dont want to work this hard.

Why does everything have to been so hard? I know, Im just whinney. But I have one day off this week from both jobs, have no money and am working a few doubles. I hardly even have time to see Haily, which I need to do.

The pets are going well. Castor has been bad lately. REALLY bad. He bolted into the hall a few days ago, and ran up and down yowling and not letting me catch him. Jen tried to help but he ran from her to. Then he started jumping at random doors and yowling louder. I finally caught him and he was super panicy.

I havnt been cooking. Its been so hot I just cant do it. I lied, I did make some AMAZING grilled cheese sandwiches. I used some grinder bread (wide flat bread thats soft and doughy) slathered it with dijon and covered with colby jack mix. I then added some tomato slices and toasted to perfection. Actually I sorta burned it, but they were delish and lasted two days of lunches :)

Sunday, July 24, 2011

Leaving soon!

Holy cow time flies when your working your ASS off. Its the end of July, and I am going to be leaving second week of August. Its kind of freaky. As bad as I want to go home I am so sad leaving. I love my apartment. I love this city and I love Alix :) lol. I love the proximity to all the eastcoast, but I havnt been anywhere so its a waste anyways.

Yesterday I was in a fowl mood, but A LOT less fowl then fridays. So to cheer myself up I went out to the Ann Arbor Art Fair. I have been hearing about this for like a month, and it was a bit dissapointing. It was just an big street art sale, which is cool, but I dont know if I would have driven all the way out for it. I did pick up two peices though, a photograph of a 50's Odlsmobil and a great night ruins picture. :)

Drive was nice, then I headed to work to end up working as a driver (uck) untill 3 am. It was dead until 1am then a flood of idiots. just so many drunkards who cant even act like a human, much less try and function. I work waaaay to hard.

Thursday, July 21, 2011

Dieing of heat!!!

As Ms Alix put it, Cooper is trying to commit suicide on an ice cute and he's the desert rodent!! Ugh, at 8am it was already 95. supposed to be over 100. Castor is panting, and at 11 am i have soaked him twice. I get to work a 10 hour shift, yay for monies and air, but Im worried about the pets. Im gunna leave the fan going (I have a fan!!!) leave frozn water bottles for everyone except the crabs and bettas (Who are lovin it) and closed the shades.

So the fan... OMG, what an ordeal. so apparently B of A put a hold on my account- AGAIN for buying gas at BP. Same BP. No one told me. So Im at Meijer, and card keeps getting rejected. After an hour on hold, they told me they fixed it and to buy my stuff, my fan and some sheets. I call back to figure out why oh why they keep f*cking with me. they then tell me my account is still frozen untill they send my card- in 5-10 BUISNESS DAYS. -_- Done with B of A

Monday, July 18, 2011


I was bad today. I have been scraping by, and decided today to splerge a bit and blow some cash ;) Lol! And this means like $20. I found the most Ghetto-tastic store, Rainbow! Got an awesome leopard print dress for $7, some thrift store shoes for adventuring, some headbands, some $2 earrings and a $2 necklace, and the best purse from the army surplus store EVER! A perfect little messenger bag like the one I sadly lost wen the car got stolen :( But this one is better. :) much much better! Better fabric and stitching and everything else. and LOTS of little pockets! Pictures soon.

Akbar called me! From Hounduras! Holy Bajeezes!!!

Dashed dreams

There is a very good chance I will not be able to go to the school I got accepted to. Im still going to California, but I can only get a tiny amount of finacial aide, and I cant get a privet loan. I am not going to spend 6 years in school just because I am broke, its not worth it. By the time I am out my leads and contacts in the industry will have died and dried up. Some dreams arnt worth keeping alive. I was crazy to think I could follow my heart as a white woman. I just dont qualify.


Finished over at the Piquat Museum. Its bitter sweet, on one hand its done and Im free, but I like working over there. Of course I had a very awkward moment when one of the head people came up to me and mentioned the job was supposed to be done by June. oops. Oh well, I had no idea. But my side is DONE!

No more Big and Tasty? OMG!

This show's how often I eat out eh? Its been gone from Detroit about 4 months I here, and this makes me sad. This has been my favorite burger at MCD for many years now, since it replaces what ever it is it replaced that was the exact same thing but smaller. Its MCD's Whopper which is appealing to me. If I just want some beef and know it will be decent, thats the burger. The last one I must have had was on my road trip out here I think. A moment of silence for the burger of paupers.

I am transitioning Castor onto the wet food diet. He is very excited about this, and he seems to be doing well. Hurrah! Mom reports Pickles is doing better on his wet food diet as well!

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Stirring up something

How do I work so much without making ANY money what so ever? How am I got all day and all night and not able to make rent without help? Ugh... This is why finishing my education and getting a good job will be AWESOME. Anywho, things are going the way they go.

Talked to my lovely mommy the other day and we decided I will take Sphinx my parakeet back and Mr. Pickles my beautiful kitty. This may be rough as a friend wants me to also take on HER two kitty babies, and I feel like 4 cats for one girl is close to certifiable. Not that Im not, just saying.

Speaking of cats, in my discombobled rampage here, I have been reading up on cat nutrition. Pickles back in Cali has had bladder and UT problems for years, and its been an on going struggle for him. I recently started reading about the glories of wet food, which I had heard nothing but bad things about before. Apparently I have been out of the loop though and its a much better diet. So I told mom to start the Pickle on it, and Im actually thinking of getting the Kitler on it as well. No fish, thats way to stinky. lol!

BTW apparently 5 cats is the lunacy breaking point for single white female. lol!

Vegi Soup and Castor's Home!

Last night was a sad night. No Castor. :( No Matisse :( But I did try Telway Sliders and they were not to bad! :) I will be returning for the little 2.225 for 4 deal they have going. But I picked Castor up today from his neutering, and he even got a tattoo out of it! lol. Im registering him with a cat club as well so I have some sort of proof of ownership. Im weird...

Anywho, making some Vegi Soup out of things from my freezer and fridge. Its in the crockpot, imagine that.

4 cups chicken broth
2 carrots sliced
2 celery sticks sliced
1 red onion sliced rough
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can of water
2 cups frozen corn
2 cups frozen pea's
2 cups frozen green beans (I used french style, but any will work)
1 potato diced large
italian seasoning
1 bay leaf

Thursday, July 7, 2011

The count down

Im so happy to leave. Things have changed a lot around here. Matisse is gone. Monday I get a text at work that "The barking has to stop now, its been going on for to long, muzzle him tonight." Barking? Howling? Omg I had no idea, so I had my neighbor watch him, and I bought a muzzle just in case. So tuesday at work I get a text that he has to go, it to much. Wait, what? How long HAS this been going on? No answer. I have to rehome my dog? Im heart broken. So I bailed on Pizza Shop (goodbye $60) and drove all the way out to take him back to Cheryls, crying the whole way (goodbye $50 in gas). Why didnt anyone tell me before it got to this point? Because everyone in Detroit is super jenky. And this California girl is done. Ya, and my neighbor is trying to make me her personal assistant, but for no pay and BTW being kind of rude about it. And Vince keeps trying to stiff me on my pay. Yup, time to go.

Castor is off at the vet today, he's getting neutered. Its so quiet and sad around here. I guess its time to let Cooper run freeeeeeee!!! lol, well, in the ball. Im getting started packing before work. I have started an experiment but I'm gunna try and keep it to its own blog. :) lol. Lemons, Lemonaide.

the Grande Ballroom Trip 1

So today has been strange. It was suppose to be my day off but I ended up working 5-9am at Corporate Pet Shop and 1-2 at Pizza Shop. I napped somewhere inbetween but still feel like shit. Matisse has been restless so I decided we should adventure. I tried to find James, aka Hustle Bustle, but he wasnt around, so we headed out alone. Matisse rolled in something dead and was super yummy for most of the trip :( First we headed over to check out the Grande Ballroom. I chickened out and didnt go in but got some cool shots from the door :)

After that we headed over to some cool sculptures and then the dog wash

Monday, June 27, 2011

Finally have some time

I have been working almost non stop since I got back from California. Yay for some days off! sadly, that also means I only work like 20 hours between the 2 paying jobs. Boo. Oh well. The critters are good, I got Matisse some Muttluks for exploration. Have to protect his little footies! lol. Sorry, boring post today.

Getting my crockpot back tonight, So the chicken experiment will continue :)

Friday, June 24, 2011


So I adopted a dog! Wow, Im the crazy animal lady :) but omg he's awesome!!!

He's a Belgian Mallinios :) Im soooo lucky to have gotten him! and Castor beats him up regularly.

Old Packard Factory

In the heart of Detroit, there are cars. Surprise! Packard was once a heavy hitter in the car world, but in '57 the doors closed on the factory forever. Enter Explorers!
