12:21 PM: smother day
brian visited this weekend! he was in vancouver for a mensa conference but hung out with me, michael & sven on saturday night. this is the first time he's been able to see the house & studio! yesterday we went to a brunch that was faaaarrr to expensive due to mother's day and walked along the columbia river.
an awkward neighborly interaction: last night sven and i were watching the sunset from the corner sidewalk when our usually very chatty foursquare evangelical neighbors walked up the street. we considered going into the house, but the daughter is one of the girls who helped us with the garden last year and we went to their christmas party. the father asked us what we were doing and we pointed at the sunset and said, "nice sunset." without even turning to look at it he said, "because where i come from that's called spooning," and hurried along without saying another word. yowch.
