All of you without (but wanting) kids, take note.. and all of you with kids, nod your head in understanding… I feel like complete shit tonight. My boy (he’ll be 18 at Christmas) came down and told me how he’d saved up $350 but hadn’t expected Denny’s to lay off all the part time staff last month so he was short money that he thought he’d have by now. Sunday...
For the last three or four weeks I’ve been wanting to do something very out of the ordinary for me - I’ve been wanting to get up and drive to the mountains for sunrise. How is this out of the ordinary? Well, sunrise is most often the time i am going to bed, not getting up. Anyway, with fall now here sunrise if after 8am and this is so much easier than when it is 4am (since the...

lamebot: changing the color of a website isn’t going to stop someone completely hell bent on suicide just as much as changing the color of a website isn’t going to cure cancer. I beg to respectfully disagree. Turning the dash pink for Breast Cancer does nothing to save a person affected. My mom had a Mastectomy December 2009 and she may have gone “awww” but it really...

I am such a child - I giggled far too much at this headline as I envisioned a bunch of stoned employees starting a fire. :)
Posting this from the Hamlet of Priddis, Alberta. Having lunch at the cafe… I think I got the framing assignment done for class. Just need to find one for leading lines and I can turn in this units assignments and finally get to work on unit three. Yay, me!
I went to bed last night in bliss - I didn’t have to start work until 11am today. YAY! Sleep in, enjoy my Friday… No - I awake at 6am, I felt water. I recall closing the bedroom window half way to stop the rain (as I assumed it was). Awake again at 7am, more rain. I sit up to close the window completely and look outside. SNOW. It’s freaking SNOWING. So now, it’s 7am...
DIY Photo Magic: How to Turn Black and White... →
I totally need to try this. Having just finished my black and white developing course (and all the ins and outs of various types of films and their processes) I actually ‘get’ the premise behind it (but still don’t 100% understand it). Sadly - for black and white I have a red, yellow, and green filter. No blue. Must go find one…
It’s 3:30am and I have to be up at 7am to work - I’ve never been known for wise sleep choices >.<
Thanksgiving dinner is complete, I managed to find a place for all of the left-overs, I’m on the second load of dishes in the dishwasher (only one more, I think) and am sitting at my desk drinking the remaining Pinot Noir strait out of the bottle and washing it down with amazing apple pie. …life is good…
I still have to figure out my new phone - all the pictures that I posted from my night away were on my cell and uploaded via the Android cell phone app… half came out high rez (as high rez as a cell gets) and half didn’t… no clue why
