Warning - Deer Crossing [12 Oct 2016|01:47pm]

I live in Uptown/Lynn-lake and drive to work in Eden Prairie every day.

Yesterday I had to stop twice to let a few deer cross the road. It was beautiful, but others were going so fast they that one guy almost hit a deer. Beware people! It is Deer Crossing Season, and if you hit one it can total your car or worse! Be careful out there...

Mpls Institute of Arts has some AMAZING exhibitions going on right now - and totally free!! [15 Apr 2016|08:35am]

Went to the Institute of Arts last night to see a special exhibition of a local guy who did illustrations for kids stories etc. in the 20's - 40's. It was AWESOME!!! This exhibition is only there until Sunday; I cannot recommend it highly enough!! And very kid accessable too!! I really hope they publish a book of his stuff, I'd buy it in a heartbeat!


There's also several other special exhibitions going on, and of course the amazing permanent collection.

And best of all, the entrance fee and most of the exhibitions (including this one) are entirely FREE!!!

I am desperately looking for a psychiatrist in the Western suburbs or in Minneapolis.  I have no idea where to look and Google isn't coming up with anything useful.  Does anyone have a recommendation?

Anybody know of a shop or independent artist who makes custom cut metal signs? Google is giving me mostly street sign-type vendors or large companies with suspicious websites.

Came across these while scanning tons of old family negatives - not sure where in the Twin Cities this was, but it was definitely either Mpls or St Paul:

Interviewing someone [26 Aug 2013|02:56pm]

I need to interview someone whose career is in either technical communication or professional writing or something related or some aspect of your job does those two things.  I am doing it for a class for my degree in that field.  It would probably be easier if we just emailed, so if any of you think you fit and want to do it please respond.

Alarm companies [20 Jul 2013|05:32pm]

Hi, I just want to say that I've had my EIGHTH burglary in 10 years in this house and I am really fucking sick of it. Can I say that here? I don't care.

So... recommedations for alarm companies/systems? I have Vivint. I pay them $50/month. My alarm was SET, motion sensors on, and this person walked right in front of it at least twice without it going off. I know for a fact it was on because I triggered it when I came down stairs in the morning.

I am looking for a new therapist who can help me with my biggest problem which is a fear of success and self-sabotage.  Does anyone know of a good therapist who is good at dealing with this.  Plus points if they deal with people with Asperger's.

Inspired by the post asking for good Indian restaurants...

I am in Paris right now and fell in love with the pastries here. Anyone know of a good French bakery in the twin cities? The more authentic, the better.

Poetry Readings??? [08 Jun 2013|09:33pm]

I need to go to some sort of reading, poetry if possible, for my writing class, but I don't know where to go.   I looked on the Loft but I need to get this done by the 23rd of June and there aren't any that I can afford or are the right thing I'm looking for.  Does anyone know of another place I can look?

Indian Food [08 Jun 2013|05:30pm]

So, the last time I asked about Indian food, I was unanimously pointed to Ghandi Mahal. In my web searches, it always comes up as the best. I can only assume it's gone drastically downhill in the past year.

The first time I went there it was pretty good but not as good as Natraj used to be. The second time, it was downright bland (I mean it was hot, sure, but not flavorful). Then I went there again this past week, and not only was the food bland, the waitress IGNORED me. She took my order and never came back... even though the place was half empty and she had the table next to mine as well. I came closer than I ever have to pulling a "dine & dash," but I eventually flagged down another server for the check.

So I'm looking for a new favorite Indian place. Ideas? Some place that knows there are other seasonings besides hot peppers and might actually bring me a glass of water now and then?
