Role Call - The Girls!

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

I've been meaning to do this post for some time, but as I said without the new laptop and newish camera blogging has been a little difficult. Now with all my excuses aside I want to take this opportunity to introduce my friends. This may be a bit silly since my friends make up a large portion of my audience, but it can't hurt. And for those of you who don't see me socially several times a week here are some faces to put with the names.

So, in alphabetical order, let's get started:


Here's Christine standing in an alley (some of you may recognize that alley from a major motion picture) with a cup of coffee in her hand. If you know her at all you will know that the coffee is classic Christine. And she's just like she looks in the picture...super nice.


Next up is Kate standing with her head between two barrels (which you will not recognize from any major motion picture). I'm not sure why she's got her head between two barrels except that I told her to do it and she did. Kate's a tad quirky (in a good way) and that's part of the reason I like her so much.


Here we have Kristin being Kristin. She's actually just pointing across the Strait of Juan de Fuca into Canada, but she's really, really excited about it. Which is just like her. You can almost always find Kristin smiling or laughing about something.


Now this is the Katie that I know and love. Sometimes she may seem a bit serious, but it's just that she's better at acting like an adult than the rest of us. Deep down she's pretty goofy and she loves laughing with and at us while we act like fools.


Last up is Regina. Here she is demonstrating the proper way to perform a twiga call (it works over mountains!). Regina is the philosopher of the group. I'm always amazed by her ability to illustrate her thoughts through awesome analogies.

So there they are, the girls of the group. They are my best friends and I love them all so much. Without them my life would be pretty boring. Actually it would be ridiculously boring.

Coming Soon: The Boys!

Back! Back with a Vengeance!

It's been quite awhile since I've actually updated this blog. And by quite awhile I mean three months. But in the time since my last post I've become the proud owner of a new laptop and an almost new camera and I'm hoping (fingers crossed) that having these two things will make it a bit easier to actually get around to blogging.

So, what do you (all seven of you) have to look forward to over the next few weeks? Well, there are some fun concerts I'll be attending. And there is the much anticipated return of Project Runway. The even more anticipated arrival of a certain movie this fall (do the words New Moon mean anything to you?). A trip to Disney World (yes, another one!), the U.S. Open and reading progress reports. Of course, I'll be sharing some pictures and stories from Dorks in Forks (it was awesome). And I'm sure I'll find some random things to post about along the way.

What about you all? Anything fun going on over the next few weeks?

A Mosaic About Me

Sunday, May 17, 2009

Well, since pretty much everyone else did a mosaic about themselves I thought I'd better do one too. The rules were simple - answer the questions listed below and use them to search flickr for a picture. If you get a chance you should check out Regina's, Christine's, Kristin's and Katie's mosaics as well. Enjoy!

The Questions:

1) What is your first name?

2) What is your favorite food?

3) What is your favorite color?

4) What is your favorite drink?

5) What is your dream vacation?

6) What is your favorite hobby?

7) What do you want to be when you grow up?

8) What do you love most in life?

9) What is one word to describe you?
