Pat Pat Toot Toot: A Maker's Year in Review
2016 was a rough year for a lot of people in a lot of ways, both personal and political.  I had my fair share of personal upsets, disappointing and concerning things took place in my professional life (none that directly impacted my own role or earning abil...

Throat Clearing

FO: Pink Monkeys
So, it turns out my "April Socks" were actually my March socks of 2015.   I do what I want, Thor.  My party, my rules, etc. etc. I cast these on last year during my annual early March frenzy of startosis.  (The natural and inevitable consequence of February...

No, it is too much. Let me sum up.
April has just flown by.  Do you hear that WHOOSHING noise?  That was April.  Happily, I caught a lot of it on film (er, metaphorical film.  I use my cell phone.  But you know what I mean.) So settle in and buckle up.  Here's a picture heavy, lightning tour...
