Take a picture, it'll last longer

I thought Rebecca was crazy for taking a photo every day during the month of May; now I've decided to take a self-portrait every day for a year. Of course, I posted the first day's photo on day two... way to get off on the right foot.

The only thing I do on a daily basis is pee, so we'll see how well I do.

Here's today's photo:

Here's my 365 Project and MySelf Portraits.

A tough act to follow

I love it when someone memes me, yet I rarely respond to them. Why? I think it’s because I read what the other person wrote and tell myself I can’t write anything nearly as clever, ingenious, or meaningful. I still feel guilty because I never responded to Baol’s meme or Courtney’s

Sorry, guys.

I’m apologizing because I’m doing a meme today, but not responding to either of yours. Heck, I wasn’t even invited to do this particular one. I’m just following Kim’s lead.

I am: starting to feel restless. It’s nice outside but I want to go swimming. Unfortunately, there's nowhere for me to do this.

I think: I’m supposed to thank God for this next answer. But I’m not going to.

I thank: James for taking good care of me. He does.

I know: what I did last summer.

I wish: gas and food prices weren’t so high.

I hate: green beans.

I miss: waking up in Hawaii.

I feel: like a lusty seagull.

I shop: as little as possible. I hate shopping.

I hear: my dog barking and growling in her sleep.

I crave: a new purse. I really want a new purse.

I wonder: what it will be like to own a dishwasher.

I dream: about being a mom and having a family.

I love: lamp.

I care. That two word sentence sounds really sarcastic.

I always: have a hard time waking up, regardless of how many hours I’ve slept.

I celebrate: somewhere else. Our house is small; we only have two kitchen chairs.

I sing: horribly.

I cry: when I get really pissed off.

I don't always: silence my burps. I know it’s not lady like, but sometimes a burp deserves a good pull.

I totally write: the way I speak, dude.

I pray: I don’t.

I lose: stuff all the time. I like to say that I live somewhere between total organization and mass fucking chaos, but I actually live in a disaster zone.

I listen: to music when I'm by myself. Which is all day.

I am scared: for the planet. Humans seem to be destroying it.

I dance: all the time, and somehow I’m still horrible .

I need: a total makeover. Then, I need a personal shopper to help me maintain the makeover.

I surf: the Internet in lieu of watching tv.

I dread: going to the dentist.

I anticipate: our upcoming home renovations. Wait, maybe it’s dread that I'm feeling.

I laugh: at fart jokes.

Tag. Terra's it.

What the hell, Jessica, you're it, too.

Nico the Luckdragon

Every time, ever, that I've had Nico groomed, ever, she comes home looking like she's about to star in a Broadway production of the Neverending Story, as Falkor the Luckdragon.

Nico -- after haircut

Granted, she looks cute, but this haircut doesn't quite match her spunky personality.

Nico -- before

Now that's more like it.

A Family Affair

The last week has gone by so fast. I did so much, yet accomplished so little. Well, I didn't get a lot of homework done, but I've caught up with quite a few family members.

On Monday, I cranked out three small assignments for one class, turned them in and headed to my Uncle Doug's. I arrived some time after four in the afternoon. We sat around, drank beer, ate pizza and talked. And talked. And talked. All. Night. Long. Seriously - we stayed up until at least five in the morning. Then I couldn't sleep. Then the sun started coming up. So I drove home.

As a result of this, my Tuesday was all messed up. I slept a few hours in the morning, a few hours in the afternoon, then got a major headache after dinner. That sucked.

Wednesday I spent the day in Homework City.

Thursday morning I ran a few errands. Before noon, I headed out to Fort de Chartres to visit my Uncle Ron who was camping there. I thought I'd hang out for a few hours, he'd tired of me and start dropping hints that I needed to scram, I'd get the hint and head home. As it turns out, we had lots and lots to talk about. So we talked. And talked. And talked. Until I absolutely had to leave... it was after six in the afternoon. I decided to take the super-scenic way home, which was awesome because I had to come home, do laundry, and then pack.

Friday we woke up and drove to visit James' sister, Julie, where we stayed with her for the weekend. On Saturday, James went fishing with the boys (and small children) while the girls stayed back and had a baby shower for Julie.

Sunday, we ate a great breakfast, waited 31 minutes, then went swimming. Because I'm so graceful, I may have broken my toe (again); while walking around the pool, blowing up an air mattress (not looking where I was walking) I walked right into some sort of plumbing apparatus that was sticking up on the sidewalk. The tell-tale bruising is just lovely.

Then we packed up and drove home.

Now it's Monday. Again.

An Apple a day keeps Microsoft away

After many, many crashes, one too many in-process documents lost, and a little persuasion from James, I've taken the plunge and become --gasp-- a Mac user. I am now the proud owner of a MacBook - Black.

I’m still learning to use the many cool features that are new to me, but it’s an exciting change and I’m glad I’ve made the switch.

What’s your favorite Mac feature?
