What New Yorkers do on New Year's Eve

Eat lots of yummy potluck food, chat, play Rock Band, and watch Dick Clark. Just like everyone else in the country!

Don't even think of parking here

On Wednesday, we drove around Salton Sea. This was possibly the weirdest drive I've ever done. To learn more about this strange and fascinating place, visit Kim Stringfellow's "Greetings from Salton Sea". We used her map as a guide and visited most of the places she documented, including North Shore, Bombay Beach (the site of this photo), Salvation Mountain, and of course the Sonny Bono National Wildlife Refuge.

A good day for cooking

I was too sick today and it was too cold to go out, so I stayed home and did some work, watched The Wire and baked some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (although in the end, the recipe came from the web.)

345/365: The beloved tchotchke

The beloved tchotcke

When I was a kid, I was fascinated by my grandmother's tiny Coke bottles. I used to take them out of the box carefully, peer at them, and then put them back on her tchotchke shelf. Even then I probably thought that anything tiny was cute. When she died a couple of years ago, all I really wanted were the Coke bottles. My mom ended up giving me other things that she found when she was cleaning out my grandmother's apartment, but the Coke bottles are my favorite.

Since I don't have them in my house, I only get to play with them when they're outside (and I can get close enough to them).
