Bridging the gap between computers and pretty dresses.
Interests: Deborah. I like caves and crystals. I am a picky purse collector, art adorer, necklace hoarder. I like to play host and bake things of a vegan nature. I could say I am a crazy cat lady but I don't think there's anything crazy about loving cats. I love to travel and decorate my house, though I have to do it when money allows like the mere mortal I am. Dresses are my clothing of choice with things I make to match. Books are my Gods. Comics my Goddesses. Legos, female actions figures and unicorns. Getting ready to publish my first Young Adult Novel and My First Story Book. Welcome!

A couple of months ago I decided I was going to give away something everyday for 30 days. Well, I actually thought about doing this in December but then got into an argument with myself about the fact that I already give away many things from gifts to money in... Continue reading

If you are looking for a great happy hour and even better food, look no further than Nico's Taco Bar. I walked up here recently from my house on a nice day and had a late lunch/early dinner and wow! I was impressed. My drinks were quite good. The best... Continue reading

Two weeks ago on continuing the tours of Minnesota Wine, I went out to Next Chapter Winery in New Prague, MN. It was a gloomy day so it was nice to sit inside and talk to the bartender about the winery. They run on solar power. One of the owners... Continue reading

I have very mixed feelings about something like Wizard World. I am a big supporter of all geek things because I know without the big movies and shows there wouldn't be more geeky things. But I am not a big supporter of paying to meet celebrities. I simply feel that... Continue reading

The traditional visit to Macy's Flower Show took place a little over a month ago. Since my blog was being redesigned I didn't get the pictures up. The theme was Art in Bloom which is actually the name of another event I went to see this weekend (pictures soon). I... Continue reading

I have this habit of eating at the same places over and over. Which is fine sometimes but I forget about the other places I want to try around the cities. In the last couple of months I've created a meet once a month and go out to eat group... Continue reading

I always try to get to the special exhibits at the Science Museum of Minnesota. I really enjoy them a great deal. The most recent one: Space An Out-of-Gravity Experience is one of my favorites. I have seen it twice and both times I really liked the interactive aspects of... Continue reading

If you ever find yourself at the Mall of America and are in dire need of a vegan cupcake...look no further than the 3rd floor! I remember the dark days of the mall when the most vegan things you could get were greasy french fries and some very poorly cooked... Continue reading

In my continuing efforts to drink all the wine in Minnesota, I went to a wine tasting that took place in caves in Stillwater, Minnesota. Stillwater is a great little town. It's like a town you see on t.v. with quaint shops, restaurants and beautiful views. There's things to do... Continue reading

It's that time of year again when several friends and I spend a whole lot of time plotting and building and preparing for our party at the CONvergence sci-fi/fantasy convention. As such I've been going through old photos from our very humble beginnings as a Dreaming themed party based on... Continue reading

A collection from female artists at the Katherine E. Nash Gallery at the University of MN. There was a challenge for men to try walking in high heels. My guy did it, no problem. Continue reading

Hooray! Thank you Vanessa, I'll email right now. I can add it to my other Vanessa Magazine articles. Like Where Women Create! Deborah
Is it too late to enter? I could use some inspiration around here. Minneapolis is a grey and dreary place right now! Congratulations! Deborah

Freezing in the slippery dark to take some snaps of the Luminary Loppet. It's a pretty event. I am not very good at photographs in the dark. Ok it was also negative degrees outside and windy so I did try. It's not easy to balance a camera on ice but... Continue reading

Gorkha Palace is so yummy. I hadn't been here in a few years. Which is a sad state of affairs. I have however, been eating the veggie momos with tomato chutney every chance I get at the Mill City Farmer's Market. I got to go to the restaurant a couple... Continue reading

There are some sad and frustrating things happening in my life right now. When my mom died some years ago, it was suggested to me to find some sort of not serious creative outlet. I started making little handmade pieces of jewelry to distract myself. I never thought I'd still... Continue reading

I was just at the MIA this weekend for the Habsburgs exhibit(what a bunch of inbred weirdoes) (but worth it to see the Werewolf Syndrome painting). It was the first known case to be documented. *source of picture unknown I was not allowed to take pictures in that exhibit but... Continue reading

So, I have completely and totally messed up this whole In Summation posts. I can't even tell you why. However, I can tell you that I am picking it back up and again. I am going to start with a funny story from my last job at the bookstore I... Continue reading

Little Szechuan has a few locations around town. The one is St. Paul is a hot pot place which is something I did not know about till last year and then went with some friends and had a great time. The location in Dinkytown has some great vegan options and... Continue reading

So maybe it's not sophisticated music. I dunno. What I do know is that Dada Life is about as much fun as you can have both listening to them and seeing them live. I have seen their show twice now and I just love it. It is high energy and... Continue reading
