Things I like Thursday

If you haven't read Claire's weekly posts, they are highly recommended!

Today, I am liking:

Homemade chili. I am still under the weather and a batch of this made me feel warm and toasty.

Paul Simon. My dad and the older of my younger brothers are going to see him in concert tonight, and I am so jealous! So I have been listening to one of his CDs all day.

Meeting friends for coffee.

This bass that Mr. RK made. Isn't he talented? Technically, he says it is "almost" finished.


Joey's post about writing a letter in retrospect to his 16-year-old self. This moved me close to tears. I'll try doing one myself when I think I'm brave enough.

This awesome Nightmare Before Christmas figure set that Mr. RK got me. I think one of the reasons we get along so well is that we're both unashamedly weird.

Having my goodies returned. (You knew I had to put in something funny, didn't you?)

That's a pretty sick base. oO

I'd turn that sentence about coffee around, so it reads like this: "Getting free coffee by meeting friends."
I'm a cheapskate, sue me. =p

A bass? Was that what he was building? A bass? He using sex jelly to polish his bass?

Granny Annie said...

Okay it's chili for us too. This is the second mention of chili this morning so I believe it is a message.

Mr. R.K. is awesome!!! He built that? WOW!

Hey, you're pretty awesome yourself.

Riot Kitty said...

F: LOL! I bought coffee.
WIGSF: I'll find out...
GA: Hey thanks! Back at you. Now go enjoy some chili :)

Shionge said...

And the Astroglide was out so I got some Spackle! We are now going to catch up on all 8 seasons of House TOGETHER!!!


LOVE ya Man it!

as always, beautiful work by Mr RK. And that picture is hysterical. Reminds me of a line on Weird Al's new CD, "Party at the CIA" where he says, "We only torture the ones we don't like, your PROBABLY going to be okay..."

Riot Kitty said...

S: Thanks!
John: Probably ;)
Darth: That's fantastic.

LL Cool Joe said...

Aww thanks for the shout out, that was a tough letter to write you know. I look forward to reading yours.


That guitar is amazing!

My partner was just talking about Paul Simon today! Weird!

Scarlet said...

I can't wait to read the letter to your younger self. It takes guts, and yes, Joey's was awesome and moving.

Cool guitar!

Now you have me wanting chili, but the kids hate anything HOT...and I like it spicy! Let me know if you have a mild recipe that's still very tasty.

Glad you got your goodies back, chica!! :)

Riot Kitty said...

J: He is quite talented! I imagine yours was a hard letter to write...mine will be too.
S: I don't think mine will be quite as awesome! I have a recipe that you can make sort of half-spicy (I love spice, too.)

A Beer for the Shower said...

Wow, he made that bass? That is freaking awesome!

Riot Kitty said...

ABFTS: For reals. He's quite talented, even without the Astroglide.

Holland said...

Hmmmm... I haven't had chili in years and my mother used to make a killer one... the one that kills you slowly the day after.... lol

Riot Kitty said...

H: Hahaha! My recipe is much gentler than that.

Lynn said...

That guitar is so cool. Will he play it or sell it?
