Having fallen behind on updating (though picture taking was on track).. I have decided to begin my Project 365 again. I will be going from 09/09/09 to 10/10/10.
Returned some Nintendo DS games that I don’t play anymore, and got this one instead. It’s cute. Not quite what I wanted but better than the ones I returned, so that’s good at least. 🙂
Well, I think part of the reason I missed so many this week is that I was getting some pretty bad headaches from stress, or something. I didn’t do this necessarily on purpose, it’s just where the bottle happened to be, but I thought it was funny that there are smiley faces in the background of this photo.
So… I really don’t know what happened here. If anything, it’s probably personal and I wouldn’t share it on the blog! Please have a look here to make up for these lost days.
Today we had Yard Sale #2… wasn’t as successful as last time for me, but still not bad. The weather was a little gloomy in the morning. Afterwards I went into the village with a couple of friends and enjoy some artwork on display in the area. One of the artists had the same last name as me (which is rare!), so I bought something from her. lol A friend of mine was getting his bike painted by my artist roommate (woot!) so we walked around to kill some time… visited some kitties in the pet store, where I got a new toy for my cat… and then got some yummy ice cream!!! Good times.
So… today was the day, that at 12:01am (technically Saturday the 13th), Facebook decided to allow its users to choose a username. Well, I just wanted to have my name, that’s all. Since I’m getting married next year, my last name is going to change, but it hasn’t changed YET. So, I didn’t really know what last name to choose, so I decided on just using my first name. I waited up late to be able to get it the second we were able to try. FAIL. It was taken… so…. I spent the next hour and a 1/2 trying dozens of different suggestions (some of which were inappropriate… haha), and enlisted the help of a few friends… finally I settled on ‘daphme‘. har… har..
I don’t know why I thought it was funny that I noticed the level of honey in the bottle was right at the neck of the bear. Makes his head look a different colour. It’s not until I posted this photo that I realized his eyes/nose seem to be drawn on with a marker. I’m not sure how I feel about that…
Today is a special treat for you. Since this month I missed so many, I decided to post a photo series today, instead of picking just one. Today was Dan’s birthday, and the photos are unrelated to that, but it just also makes it appropriate to do it today. 🙂
I got a Kinder Egg, and the toy was this cute little robot dude. I decided to follow him around his universe and, with his permission, was able to catch some photos of him exploring. According to the info portrait that came with the egg, he is one of the bad guys, but I completely disagree. He is actually not shooting his weapon, so I’ve concluded that he is a spy. Of course, he’d never tell me this. He never told me his name either. I called him Harold.
Tonight my friend Ang and I went to see Up. It was really cute, but really sad. It was also the first movie I saw in 3D. Ever! So that was neat, but a little weird. Took a bit to get used to the glasses. I find it strange that we have progressed to a point in movie-going society that our 3D glasses are THIS. Like really, what was wrong with the old paper ones?
Note to general public. Don’t bring babies to movies. Seriously. Just…. stop it.
I took a lot of photos this day…. a lot of my parents’ house, where they’ve lived for 22 years… I’m keeping those photos for myself, and don’t want to post them here.
However, on my drive back into London, I had quite the animal rescue ordeal. Traffic was STOPPED, and I couldn’t figure out why. I saw this guy trying to shove/kick something off the road , but couldn’t tell what it was. It DID look like an animal, but I couldn’t tell if it was alive… then I could see it hissing and biting at the guy’s foot… omg. So I get out of my car to see wtf is going on. Meanwhile a guy from the Tim Horton’s across the street had come over with a shovel to help. It tied up 2 lanes of traffic for a couple minutes, then one lane of traffic for about 5 minutes. I asked if I could take a pic, they said yes. I also DID actually help, because the guy was having trouble getting the MASSIVE TURTLE to stay on the shovel, so I nudged it on with my foot. woot.
He put it in the bank beside the road, which leads to a nature area. Rather than the commercial area where this guy was headed. Hopefully he stays in the safe spot.
My parents are also moving this year, and thus having a few yard sales of their own. I went to join them (and to drop off some stuff), and this little guy joined us for part of it. I got a little too close taking this pic I think, and he finally flew off.
So, this is a bit of a cheat, but.. today I just took video. I don’t want to totally forego the 365 photos thing, so I took a still from one of the videos. I was originally planning to do another yard sale video, but decided not to. However, I did have some footage, including Kitty “begging” for food…. hahaha She looks awesome.
Unfortunately, printscreen doesn’t work properly on videos anymore I’ve noticed. After playing around with it a bit, I decided I had to take a picture of the screen…. literally. Sorry for the poor quality, but I think you get a feel for her annoyance… lol
So…. my cousin sent me an email with a recipe for chocolate cake in a mug that you “bake” in the microwave… wow. What will they come up with next?!?! (don’t answer that) Anyways, occasionally Dan and I will try to cook “together”… being as we’re about 2,500 miles apart, that really just means bringing the laptops into the kitchen and webcamming while we’re on the phone with each other. Pathetic, but that’s the best we can do right now. SO, Dan made one too and split it with his dad.
I thought it wasn’t bad actually… a little too moist for my liking, but otherwise pretty good! I recommend using a BIG mug for this. Email me or leave a comment if you want the recipe! 🙂
