If Friday the 13th is unlucky, Sunday the 1st should be unluckier.

Think about it.

Bella, is it okay if I blog your photo of the GG Bridge? If so, I will tell my tale in my LiveJournal thingie.

Struggling with internal demons over the weekend -- think maybe I have come to a solution -- i guess there is the reason for the lack of words.... I've visited photo streams over the weekend and left no comments.... my voice is missing right now.... the saturday photo IS where I am right now. my favorite part of it.... the pins of light in my eyes....

Heehee - when SuneshineCity said "I've never seen them that big!", was she talking about May 17 rather than May 16? (or perhaps even May 19?). Needless to say, I LOVED your wardrobe malfunction, and think your keyboard on the diary was a cop-out, but I'll forgive you.

By the way JR, I love that you're babbling and commenting everywhere. I confess that i've lurked in your photostream and usually because your stories move pretty quickly -- by the time i get there my comments are irrevelant, so I don't say anything, but I love your work :-)

thank you Rob for visiting and your comments -- hmm, i'll bet the 16th ;-) and it seems my "malfunction" is amusing to many -- know what sucks tho -- pictures that I think are far better artistically don't get nearly as many views and the ones showing skin....i should be used to it by now

Eeland, I love black linens and have several sets.... even in cold water though they end up fading pretty quick -- Can't you find them online?

CG -- that tale is my life.....

SunshineCity -- what do you want for breakfast tomorrow? i'm making a quick run.... croissants, strawberries and cream perhaps?

Re your previous comment: more arousing than amusing ;-) And I totally agree about certain genres of pics getting unwarranted attention at the expense of true gems. I have commented on this before. It is still a mystery to me that this unexceptional back view of a girl reading a book has greater than 36000 views and 100 faves.

I should have entitled my photostream "Look! There's Something Shiny!..... Now, What was I saying...?" oooh, that might be a good title for a book.

missed ya, Marc! good one ;-)

Sb -- what do you feel like eating? I need something sweet....I wandered around like a dork at lunchtime in a minimall from the Chinese place to Subway even to Starbucks -- I'll NOT pay $6.00 for some meager looking (albeit delightfully brown and moist bread) tuna sandwich. wandered into the market and got some canned soup for my desk and a couple frozen entree's. Today I had chicken tikka masala -- not bad for frozen either.

Touche, Rob. I suppose it was more arousing to the viewers and THAT is amusing to me.

Someone today asked me my philosophy..... i thought about it and quickly summed it up thusly:

always think before you act
live clean
work hard
play hard
love hard
be brave
be kind
be honorable
be complete
be creative

love... yourself and others
and laugh often

Sunshine -- I think she has a few boys on the other wall -- a shot for another day when I've forgotten to take my picture for the day.... She likes the guys in the High School Musical.

JAllen -- It does!!??? Gee, I totally didn't get the message -- I even climb up there in her bed with her sometimes.

Glory -- She loves Hannah Montana, now there's some other show she's into about music -- I can't remember the name, she's been TiVo'ing it

Rob -- Yeah perfect for a 12 yr old. I'm glad she's pretty much age appropriate but we've started the makeup wars.... for some reason mascara is big on her list of things to wear....

Glory -- do you know the dances yet? We went to the live show in January -- she was thrilled.

finally, getting over the weekend -- still uploading pix...... geez....


Up at 5:30 to head down with family and friends to the Barona Indian Reservation to the Casino there. I'm not too dazzled by gambling these days -- long story -- so my own betting tends to be ultra conservative these days. (even tho this is my second gambling pix of the day for the year with me winning) I played the penny slots (my combination was 50 cents a pull) I put 20 bucks in the machine and won $200. Left there ahead -- that's the best I can ask for. didn't break the bank, but I swear this machine was fun and I was pretty jazzed to see 14,400 coins as my jackpot for this win. We left there about 3:30 and got back to LA around 6 -- later that night we partied up on Sunset in Hollywood.... long day... home at 3AM.... Day 1 of the weekend....

Thats one odd looking character!!! But you're pretty lucky to have the left the casino with more money in your pocket than when you arrived. A good friend of mine went to a Casino recently and lost nearly £500!!!!! And he's a student!!!!
