Dear Camera..

... I'm so sorry.

I didn't mean to leave you unzipped in my camera bag.

I really didn't mean to hurl you onto the floor as I threw my bag over my shoulder.

And I super didn't mean to give you this slight rattle inside your body.

Please speed up your autofocus again for me and last until I can get enough money for your big cousin, the 5D Mark II. Don't take it personally, I know you've been feeling the need for retirement also. I still value your 8.2 megapixels, however, and know that with a decent glass, you'll be worth more money to me than those stupid "cash-for-electronics" people at PPI for a looong time. $240, my rear-end!

That is, if you don't die on me.

Tearfully yours,

Good Valentine's Day.... I worked at the store, then had subway, got a really sweet card and chocolates from Joel, had a mini oceans 11-12 marathon, and now I'm ready to sack out.

Hope everyone's was pleasant also!

Dear Mother Nature...


You confuse me.

How unkind of you to give us 60 degree weather and sunny skies in the second week of February. Do you not realize that this false hope and dashing of dreams for spring is the cause of deep dark depression?

Okay, not really. But that was still a really mean April fool.. in February!

Take a chill pill (not literally) and calm yourself.

Happy Birthday..

... to me!

I guess today marks my entrance into the adult world.

*ahem* Yeess, yeeess. Clap for me while I bow.


Chiro treatment, laundry, ogling my husband while ice skating, chocolate cake... good enough day for me. :)

I'll get some pics on eventually.

Hairy subject

Someone help me please!

I've been noticing it for the last well, year at least, but in the last 2-3 months, my hair has been crazy falling out. When I'm combing my hair out after washing it, or even during washing, there's tons of strands that come out.

What causes that? I've tried 3-4 different kinds of shampoo/conditioner (I've stayed away from the 'all-natural' shampoos because my hair 'au-natural' is a frizzy nasty mess.). I do wear my hair up nearly every single day because if I wear it down I have to use tons of product or straighten it... and that's not good for it either...

Any suggestions for me? I have to clean out my hair trap in the drain nearly every day if I dont want the water to back up. It's gross.

Urg. Bullet style.

*No internet for 4 days. I've gone crazy and feel out of touch.

*PPI was fun, exhausting, and exasperating. My prints didn't do well. That wasn't fun. But there were a lot of great marketing techniques. Learned a few new PS things.

*I now have to do 4 more assignments than I was originally hoping.

*My first day of work at TNK starts in less than an hour.

*I'm sick. Sore throat, sore neck muscles, headache. And stomach-ness. No puking as of yet, but have been close. (Dear Sierra Mist, Thank you.) Unfortunately what I have eaten has made dramatic exits for the last couple of days.

*I've lost all organization with classes, blog, keeping house, finances (yes, I'm an online banking addict. I DO need it every day to monitor, otherwise overdraft fees happen. 4 of them to be exact. I'm happy.) That's what happens with no internet.

*I cant stay warm. 2 layers + multiple blankets or 5 layers of clothing and I can't keep warm. Yet Joel says I feel warm.

*I got my van stuck in the Belling's driveway. Just trying to drive up the slippery hill. Thank you, Joel for fixing the U-joints on the truck so I can have my 4x4 back!!

*Aunt Flo decided to make her presence known at the same time as that... which was on Saturday afternoon. So yes, I'm sick... and I dealt with that the whole convention.

But hey... its my birthday on Saturday. *ahem, Joel*
We're going back to my parents for chiro treatments and ice skating... something to look forward to!
