A warm cuppa MOCA on a rainy autumn day.
Leslie, Sharon, Egan and I met at the Westside Market Cafe for breakfast this past Saturday morning and then headed over to MOCA Cleveland to see the Diana Cooper exhibit.

I was a bit skeptical when Rebecca mentioned how amazing she thought it was, but I thought I would check it out anyway. And since I wasn't sure I would like it, I of course dragged some friends to see it with me. (I'm so thoughtful aren't I?)

I should have known that Rebecca would be right. She knows her artsy cool stuff.

It was a lot of gigantic three-dimensional installations. Just amazing. As Sharon and Leslie pointed out, very architectural.

I told Leslie I wanted to start a podcast that was me talking, giving a tour of galleries and shows that are in Cleveland each month. Talking about the art. Giving some info about the artists.

She asked if it would just be me saying "Do ya like it? huh? How about this? Do you like this one?"

I guess that's all I kept saying to her.

Anyway...go see the show at MOCA. It's very cool.

More importantly, BUY ART THIS WEEKEND!!!

When I was a kid I loved the song Shake It by Ian Mathews.

The opening scene in this movie is probably the reason why.

You don't have to watch it after 1:06

I can't believe I am Stuart!

Which Dyke to Watch Out For Are You?
created with QuizFarm.com
You scored as Stuart

You are Stuart, partner and co-parent with bi-dyke Sparrow. You believe that values need to be backed up with action, which can make you a bit impulsive at times. Make sure to budget time and money in order to afford the winter-length utili-kilts and Air America Radio shirts you've had your eyes on.















I wanted to be Lois or at least Mo!!

The cool thing is that Alison Bechdel is a Stuart too.

I'm a snotty ass foodie

This morning I went to visit my folks in Ravenna. My Uncle Jim from Apple Valley, California was in town. I have not seen he and my Aunt Donna in 20 years.

It was great to see them. Although Uncle Jim has turned into "dittohead". He was spouting all the sillieness. Things like, how lucky we are to have George W. Bush in the whitehouse. Oy.

Anyway, over coffee, mom was talking about wanting to take my aunt and uncle to lunch after visiting my father at the nursing home.

My mom suggested a place called Mike's Place that's kind of like an authentic TGIFridays. They have stuff all over the walls and hanging from the ceiling. But it's all stuff that the owners and staff have collected over the years. Right near the front door they have a full size model (I assume it's full size, I have never been close to the real thing)of a Star Wars X-Wing Fighter.

My mom likes to go there. I don't so much. Not that I am a health nut (it's painfully obvious) but the food is pretty....hmmm.....kinda.... High Cholesterolicious! They should hand out heart paddles instead of moist towelettes.

I said to my mom, "What are you guys gonna get? A bucket of deep fried heart disease?"

Mom said in a fake haughty voice, "ohhh, I'm sorry they don't have... don't have...
asparagus with cheese sauce!"

She did this while miming the pouring of cheese sauce over some high-falutin' asparagus.

Vespa, Vespa

Today Pat and I went down to Pride of Cleveland Scooters so I could try and talk her into buying a new scooter.

I almost succeeded. She said she doesn't want anything BUT a Vespa.

I totally understand. They are just gorgeous.

If I could afford one I would have one too.

Although I do love my poor Vespa cousin from India, the Bajaj.

Flying Club Cup

I have to go to the dentist this afternoon.

To calm myself while under the drill I will think of this video.
