Nice to know my Mt. Kilimanjaro-sized pile of clothes is good for something. Snore-inducing, even!

Apple Picking

Had a great time apple picking with friends the other day at Nashoba Valley Winery. Really pretty grounds. We all brought a picnic lunch and then wandered around and checked-out the apples. I tried to control myself and not say too loudly, "You're NOT suppose to shake the tree like that!" when I saw a woman shake the tree and then say, when it hit the ground, "Ew, it's on the ground and dirty!"


I love how in this one, I look like I am going to turn Noah into a vampire with my glowing fangs. Nice.

So You Think You Can Dance

I went to this show with Mom and friends the other night. I found this video recording of my favorite dance from the same show we saw on the same night! Not bad video for being from some tiny camera!

Is it wrong of me to say that I think Jason is completely adorable? I mean, he is, like, 20.

Just Don't Drive Drunk

My friend Suzanne sent me this. Really fun!

Become your own abstract artist! Check out the Jackson Pollock link below. It's a great stress reliever...and rather zen as you watch your artwork disappear when you press the refresh button for a blank slate.

Go to this website. Click the cursor and move it around and see what happens.

September masthead

I present to you this month's (and possibly next month's) new masthead. I'm pleased with it aside from the fact that I cannot figure out how to get it not-blurry.

No complaining, please, I am very busy and important.

I Mean, Really...

Could be be any cuter?
I say no.

Michael at the VMAs

I was at the gym watching this while on the ellyptical. At the end, where Janet was essentially dancing with her brother, I nearly lost it. I mean, I actually wondered if I should get off the treadmill and leave the gym because I was afraid I'd make an ass out of myself!

Clearly I'm busy if I have been even unable to replace my masthead. Since, I'm guessing, I have maybe three readers, I guess I feel it's OK to slack off.
Work has kept me busy for sure. I just got a call today from someone getting married in a week and a half. Yup, you read that right. Now in their defense, she contacted me a while back, but then she kind of disappeared.

I went through a mess deal with my website last week. I changed companies and there was some confusion about who should be making it possible for the site to go live - the old company? The new company? The domain host? Meanwhile, I didn't have any idea what they were talking about in their tech-babble, so when they would stick me on the other parent to get help, I'd have to take notes to convey the technological babble to the next guy. My business email was linked to the site too, so I didn't get any business emails for six days and anyone who tried to reach me that way...well didn't.

I was hoping to teach some photo classes this season/term, but I'm not so sure it's going to happen. I went to my first class yesterday, and there were three people. One of whom was supposed to be in beginners but ended-up trying intermediate because the beginners had so few people they had to can it. I got about five minutes into my talking about Manual photography when she said she was totally overwhelmed already and wasn't going to stay. So, here I'm left with two very interested students, trying to figure out what level of photo knowledge I should be getting into. Do I teach them Manual like I planned? Do I teach them how to better use heir Auto buttons? BY the end of the class, are rather, three-person summit, I felt like I was a crappy teacher. I think I confused myself.

It didn't help the likelihood of class attendance that the photo courses were listed under "recreation". Huh? To me, recreation is volleyball, or bowling. Photo should have been int he creatives section. But, it wasn't.

I'm amazed at how busy my business has been keeping me. From shooting architectural stuff, to weddings, to dealing with tax stuff and oh, did I mention Health insurance? That's always fun.

Here's something that is fun though. She's not a sore shoulder, or a date gone wrong. She's not a dog who won't stop barking at every little thing, or expensive health insurance.

She's Amelia! My close friend Maureen's little one. And she's great!

Not Gettin' Up Yet

This morning I got out of bed. Oliver did too, all rickety and bed-bodied. He moved a few steps away from his plush, cushie couch-bed, stopped, thought for a moment (or seemed to) turned around and got back into bed.

It was awesome.
