Ask Me Anything #6: The Moon

Future Landfill asked “Did you go outside and look up at the moon when Neil Armstrong went for a walk there in ’69?”

The Year in Review: 2008

I got this annual recapping idea from Rachael at Yarn-a-go-go.

January

Duncan and I adopted each other, I went on a business trip to Toronto, and Mayor Larry thought he was a rock star when he got booked on charges of bribery and influence peddling.

February

I won second prize in a beauty contest. Ha ha! No [...]
