Regular posting to resume shortly. I'm busy plotting how to spend my tax refund...

Scenes from a Weekend



Brown bagging the cat


I get fidgety when I'm not driving and end up taking a lot of phone pictures and videos. It's amazing we haven't gotten into an accident. (I have this thing and it's weird, but I know it's weird: I make these little movies on my phone, or camera, and tell bf, "This'll make me really sad if you die unexpectedly. Or it'll make you really sad if I do." They're stupid little 15 second things, like me blowing a kiss or him waving hello, but that thing has been so deeply ingrained in the culture--in cinema--that you can't help but think it'll be playing at a funeral. He goes along with me. Does he really even have a choice?)


The view just around a curve on the way home (we live by the water, so everything is.... expansive).

A
lso, have you all been reading the Daniel Clowes comic, Mr. Wonderful, in the New York Times? It's just getting good.

I assume you eventually .... let the cat out of the bag?????? Oh, why did you force me to say that!

That's weird - everytime someone used to have a video camera around us years ago, my friends would always say, "Well, now someone from this group's gotta die soon."

We didn't, of course. But I wish we hadn't taken those videos anyway - mostly just because I used to wear a lot of really bad clothes.

Pretty sunset and brown-bagging the cat is hilarious.
I agree about the flowers very Austenian and people should do it more! Though my friends already think I was born in the wrong century.

The video/picture thing -- I do that all. the. time. Except I don't always tell the bf/friend/whoever I'm taking pictures with. And yet I'm morbidly thinking it nevertheless.

Thee cat looks less than amused, haha, & that video habit is a bit odd, I don't generally think of funeral video montages.

Daniel Clowes in the New York Times?!? Yay, I totally have to read it for a class.

The idea of those scenes you're shooting are so poignant in that context...

Kitty in a bag looks better than Posh (though, unlike her, your cat will actually be cuter once it's out of the bag).
