"It's Called the 10-Day Crud," She Said.

MaryAnn stood at the kitchen counter. I tried my best to get a good look at her. The Crud, now in its eighth day, had seemed to settle in my eyes on its way out.



"Yes," she said, "they say it spends three days coming, four days making you miserable, and three days leaving."



"Hmmph."



"Along the way it gives you a sore throat, watery itchy eyes, headaches, clogged up ears, a stuffy nose,… Continue

Las Posadas de Barelas 2008

The older I get, the more drawn I am to local neighborhood holiday traditions. Part of it is a nostalgic longing for community – I have happy childhood memories of large extended family gatherings. (To give you an idea what I mean by extended family - in just 10 minutes I came up with a list of more than 200 family members, and given another 20 minutes I could probably double that list. And this is without conferring with my mother, whose memory has a… Continue

Las Posadas

(cross posted from Forgotten Albuquerque



In name, at least, this blog is about “forgotten” things. The idea is that, on some level, all history is forgotten the moment the last person with memory of it dies. Therefore, those of us who find ourselves looking backwards are constantly trying to reconstruct experiences we’ve never had, poring over tattered documents and fading pictures, trying to put ourselves into moments forever sealed off… Continue

Posole



I was inspired by the lady who was giving samples of tamales from Bueno Foods at the grocery store. She gave me a recipe card for Holiday Posole from Bueno but I did my own thing.



Braise 2.5 pounds of pork neck bones with meat, add favorite seasoning to taste (I used salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried minced onion and season all). Add… Continue

WPMMSAAHCFTHCNDHE!

(Um... that's a big bag of stuff for the homeless pictured in the banner, from last year, pre Nikon... btw)



It’s that time of the year again. The time when our neighbors let the *incessantly barking dogs out just a little later, when the sun is warm. Peace and Joy? How about Peace and QUIET! The time when little old ladies hit your car not once but twice in the parking lot at… Continue

Notification and "standing" of non recognized Neighborhood Associations on zoning and planning issues

In listening to the City Council meeting of December 15, 2008 (AC-08-23 and the discussion regarding “notification”) I continue to be astounded by the degree to which some of our our elected officials embrace an archaic concept of privilege in matters of government information.



During the conversation regarding notification of land use matters scheduled to be heard by the EPC (or Council) to individuals, coalitions and non-recognized (alternative) neighborhood organizations… I saw… Continue

Little Red Hamburger Hut

Ever since Lota-gate I've been looking for a new place to get a good burger. Coincidentally, I've also meant to go try out a Wimpy's since time immemorial (Martini Mike's blog furthered the inspiration). Then one day, at Mountain and Sawmill, all was resolved.

We arrived at 11:20-… Continue

The 10:30am Railrunner to Santa Fe

Yes! Yes! We were on it. And it was great! Sure, we did go r-e-a-l-l-y slow at one point, but the views were more than worth it. We weren't on any time limits or job deadlines so we didn't care. Commuters grumbled but did they really expect to get there on time the first day? The very first trip of the day was worse than ours from what I understand.



The new snow really made the view incredible. We were just a few feet from the traffic on the slushy highway but it was like being in a… Continue

A Pleasant Lobo Surprise

We were walking up to The Pit last night to watch the UNM Lobos take on Oral Roberts University. It became immediately obvious that I had misplaced one of the tickets somewhere between my work, my house and Lobo Country.



Totally furious at myself, I prepared to throw myself at the mercy of the ticket-taker, explaining that I had bought two tickets and had lost one out… Continue

IMAX in ABQ?

So Regal Theaters has announced they are planning a 16 screen theater in the new Winrock development link here and I must say I am very torn on the idea. While I'm definetly not a Cinemark fan by any means, I do enjoy the idea of this theater continuing to pick away at what little crowds the Rio is still getting. When I worked for Century Theaters, customer service was at least mentioned in the training. The projectors… Continue

Mothering From Afar



I can’t say that I’ve always seen eye to eye with departing Congresswoman Heather Wilson, but part of me has a soft spot for her. You see, we’re both members of a fairly small club – the club of Albuquerque mothers who commute by jet to work.



Long distance commuting wasn’t what I set out to do when I started down my career path. Like most people, I assumed that I’d get my education and then get a… Continue

Birds in the Hood

I originally wrote about sauntering into Fredrico's hair salon at Montgomery and Tramway with an outdated copy of Bon Appetit in my hand that had a picture of Candice Bergen on the last page and telling him to make my hair look like hers, much to the dismay of some guy on the other side of the universe, but I decided that posting pictures of the birds in the hood was infinitely more interesting. Maybe. Besides that, you can listen to my Christmas music (and yes, Marilyn Monroe singing… Continue
