Look What I DID!!

My first ever COMPLETED crochet project :) A small, drunken monkey looking wrist warmer.

Afternoon Nap

What's better when you're feeling ill than an afternoon nap in the sun?

Up in Lights

Ever dream of having your name up in lights? I never have. Fame? Nope, not for me. Fortune I'd go for, maybe even glory... (flashback to Indianna Jones- "Fortune and Glory, Kid. Fortune and Glory.")

Ok, so this isn't my full name... I was doing it in the closet so that it was dark enough. Maybe I'll get outside and do this where there's space to spread out, widen the camera angle, and spell my full name. Until then, just my initial (which is how I'm known to most folks anyways).

If I were a Cartoon...

I'd have flames coming out of my nose from how sore it is, and watery red eyes from my plugged up sinuses. Being sick is no fun at all!

Revenge of the Snot Bubble!

As revenge for my taking close up photos of his snot bubbles, my baby nephew kindly decided to share his cold, so that I could have my own snot bubbles.

Ahh Summer

When tank tops start coming out =)

Just Me and the Monkey Man

Some hanging out time in the morning, before he realized I was holding him (not Mom), and started to whimper. And then cry. Because let's face it- Aunty G is not NEARLY as awesome as Mom.

Soo Tired

A rather boring pic of an exhausted me (out of town family staying at my place for a big shindig for my bro-in-law's birthday). I spruced it up by playing around with it a bit.

Ok, I love how if you look closely, you can see all the colours on my arm wrapped around in this little glass bead. Along with my giant hand of course.

Yup, I am addicted to my cell phone.

Comedy and Tragedy

Ok, so I've been scouring the internet for inspiration lately, and this is mostly stealing off of a photo I saw... somewhere... but that's the problem. I can't give credit to my original inspiration. Granted, the original I saw wasn't done up as comedy/tragedy... but it's still pretty much a stolen idea.

This photo totally did not turn out how I was hoping it would. I will need to work on this some more to get the effects I want, but sadly today I just do not have the motivation.

Although on a plus note- I am officially 1/3 of the way through this crazy thing!!! Trying to kick my creativity back into gear, and this is a big acheivement. I honestly didn't think I'd even make it this far when I started.

No Pictures Please!

Feeling very sick of needing to think of a photo every day.... Although I knew this was a passing feeling.

A little too late (ie the next day) I thought that this would've been the PERFECT photo to end this project with. Sadly, it was too late to take a different one for this day.

So, something went wrong with my labels... tags.... whatever you want to call them... so I tried to fix it, and suddenly there are a few posts out of order. This distresses me greatly as I've been trying for the past 119 days to keep my photos published IN ORDER, even if not published the day they were taken. *sigh* perhaps some future editing will sort the problem out. Probably not. I'm sorry dear readers, it was not intentional. I didn't realize editing an older post would bump it to the top- otherwise I would have left the annoying labels with bizarre symbols and coding in them.


Hair In My Eyes Like A Highland Steer

Feeling the Corb Lund Love!

Photo taken 10 May 2011. Video/Song stuck in my head for past week... possibly more. It's just damn catchy!

Photographer's Eye

Not feeling very inspired today... Actually I haven't been feeling very inspired for my 365 photos in a while. Sheesh this is getting rough. I'm nearing the 1/3rd mark (about a week away) and it's not easy I tell ya! Fingers crossed for inspiration and motivation!

A 3 Way! Tie I mean....

So, for today's pic, something unprecedented. I couldn't decide which one I liked best. So I'm submitting my top 3 of the day. My hubby helped me newsprint up a frame, and voila- instant inspiration for a fun day at the park! Or at least a few minutes while I destroyed the paper. So, tell me what you think! Which do you like best and why?

#1 - I See You

#2 Breaking Free

Or #3 Outside the Frame (yes, I know that's a Paul Brandt song... thinking up pic titles is just as much a challenge as coming up with ideas for the pic sometimes).

Drag Queen Dreams

There is a great RuPaul quote... "We're born naked. The rest is just Drag." Today, I felt like being a drag queen... minus the feather boa.

After a week away from home on business, and then coming home to a garage sale, I'm exhausted, and updating my blog is 1 more chore to check off of my to-do list.

Is it Time to go HOME yet???

Exhausted at SeaTac airport waiting for my flight home.

Make OVER!!!

For Cinquo de Mayo my co-worker and I got done up and went out for Mexican food. There was some great eats here, and said co-worker did a great job on my hair and make up. I look like a girl!!!!

Burger Time

This burger joint was featured on Man Vs. Food apparently. This place will cook their bacon and stack it in a giant brick... Red Mill Burgers. Sadly they do not have any photos of the bacon brick online that I could find, but trust me, it was impressive. Bacon, the size of a cinder block.

This photo taken 4 May 2011.

May the fourth be with you! Happy Star Wars Day!

Mirrors all over the place!

Spent the day representing P.R.T. all over downtown Seattle... but decided to take a cool shot of me in one of the gazillion mirrors in the hotel room (because you all know I have a thing for mirrors and photography).

Superman Where Are you Now?

Schrödinger’s Gender

Saw what is probably my new favouritest quote the other day...

"I exist in a superposition of gender; it is only by interaction with an outside observer that I settle into some semblance of male or female." Seen on genderfork.

Still taking my pics, but as I'm not at my "home" computer (and am paying an arm and a leg for hotel internet access), I still won't be uploading anything until I return to Victoria. Just a few more days!
