I didn't even realize it until right now, but today is the one year birthday of Belmont Babbles. A year ago I started this blog. I didn't know what I was doing then, and I still don't. Yeah! The year, as documented, has been full of adventures, both fun and challenging.

March has been a quiet month, I know. I've had the opportunity to participate with people on real life creative projects. What?! You talk to people!? You leave your house?! I know. Really. These real life interactions have been a nice reminder of how gratifying working with people (in the real of life and flesh) is.

Oh, and for those of you who were wondering if I've gotten a job yet, the answer is, no. But I have applied and interviewed for one. You'll know when I know.

Shit. Of course the job is nearby, silly. I wouldn't go leaving Camden for a second summer in a row. I've learned that lesson.

One more thing and then I'm done. I swear. Because I change my mind a lot I'm blogging on my Tumblr blog again. Blah blah blah. If you really stalk me then you already knew that.

Oh, and here's a gift. Of music. Maybe you've heard of the Muxtape, maybe you haven't. Wellllll, it's like a mixtape. Online. And because I was an early adopter on this one, I got Emily as a user name!


The music will change with my mood. Hugs n mugs. I'll leave you with Wayne! See, I knew that would make you smile!

Magic hands and Wayno


Hi, my name is...

emily with a match

Lest you forgot.



I've been grumpy lately, but as usual the doctor in space always seems to order up just what I need in the stitch of mental sanity. Today, a pair of children were on the menu.

(I'm not the best with ages, but I'd say Towhead is probably six. Maybe seven. His older sister, Sassy, is probably eight or nine.)

Towhead: I was conceived in Havana!
Me: Do you know what that means?
Towhead: Well, I wasn't born there...
Me: Did you hear that Cuba's leader just stepped down?
Sassy: Yeah, he was charge for like fifty years or something.
Me: (Flabbergasted) You're so right!

Towhead: Do you knit? (as he digs out knitting needles and yarn)
Me: I used to, but it's been a while.
Towhead: Oh, I could help you out with that.
Me: Oh, really?
Sassy: If anyone teaches her to knit it should be me. I'm better than you. I'm already onto crocheting.
God, I love kids.

As a kid- Knitting is fun
