oh and DKM – her food, crochet, knitting and stuff

13 things about DKM

DKM & Uncle Mark

DKM and Mark

Since it is Thirteen Thursday, we’ll do 13 things rather than 7.

  1. I’m convinced she is part cat because she understands my idiosyncrasies so well.
  2. She has very dark brown curly hair that I like to pounce at night, she, not so much.
  3. She always shares her yogurt with me.
  4. She loves to cook and she lets me watch her from my kitchen blanket or the top of the refrigerator.
  5. She doesn’t eat meat because it makes her very sick.
  6. She is always doing something like working on the computer, reading a book, taking  pictures or crocheting because she always needs to be doing something with her hands. I think Squilliam would call it RHS, restless hand syndrome.
  7. She is part Spanish and part Italian.
  8. She always wears black until people tell her she is wearing too much black, then she drags out a pair of navy pants for a day and then goes back to black
  9. She listens to music all day at work. She says it makes her work better.
  10. She is addicted to Lost and English Mysteries.
  11. She reads Non Sequiter every morning.
  12. Her family is very musical; DKM sings jazz and musicals, Uncle Mark is a band director and plays percussion, the piano, the guitar and almost every other instrument there is, Her Aunt is an Opera Singer and teacher, her Uncle is a jazz pianist, Uncle Bill plays the guitar, her cousin is a famous Jazz Bassist, and now Emi is learning clarinet – just to name a few.
  13. She gives the absolute best head, neck and ear massages.

  1. Daddy is also part Italian and wears black all the time. He wears identical black shirts & pants to work every day (he does add color with his ties). He says it’s easier getting dressed in the morning and hides anything he might spill on himself (he got rid of all of his white dress shirts years ago). He doesn’t do navy though. Last weekend he wore a yellow shirt and Mommy told him he looked weird. We’d say you might be related, but he’s a big carnivore (Mommy not so much).

    Black … why that’s one of the Raider colors. Everyone looks good in Raider black.

  3. What a cute photo! I love her little Mary Jane shoes. She is nice to always share her yogurt with you, too.

  4. wow! cute photo. your DKM is cool. My mommy is 100% German and daddy is 1/2 German 1/2 Italian. she does sound like she has RHS. My mommy used to smoke (OK, she has some relapses) so she tries to always keep her hands busy.
    we think she should dress however she wants. take it from a house panther – black is a good look.

  5. DKM sounds very cool. Our mom has curly hair, too. Do you ever put the bitey on DKM’s hair? That is a very good game, even though she’ll pretend she doesn’t like it.
