Blog of the Day

So somewhere in all this mess of my strangely changing life, I seem to be the Blog of the Day over at Fuel. Check it out in this screen cap. It’s in the top left. This was kind of nice, seeing how I’ve been so distracted over here lately. I promise to get up to speed at some point. Maybe after I close on my someday house/condo/whatever I can afford.

I’m not gonna be famous, but I can dream…

The 50 primeSo this weekend is yet another moment of truth. The reception for my first solo photography show. I can only hope everyone will buy up everything to justify my purchases today at a designer sample sale. I should not be left alone with certain jewelry. Anywho, I’m no David LaChapelle at the moment but I’ve already sold a piece and the pictures have only been up since Monday. And I’ve sold others in a previous shared exhibit. Maybe I’m not so bad. You can be the judge. Bagel of Everything over at Ration Reality was so very kind enough to give me a plug under their NEWS section. Thanks lady.

The next goal is getting my dream macro lens and snap better shots. People go on and on about the “eye” being more important than the equipment but let’s get real. You may have a wonderful eye but limited equipment that can’t produce what the eye wants to capture. Currently my main lens is this 50 prime you see before you. However it was taken by my “dream” lens: the Nikon 105mm f/2.8 with VR. All that mumbo jumbo basically means kick ass but there’s lots better out there however over $700 is more than enough of a start. At least that is the translation I’m sticking with. If you look at the reviews of the product, there is one complainer but he’s not using it right. This baby isn’t a portrait lens (my prime is) and that is why I want it. It produces AMAZING macro shots. Sorry, I’m babbling again while drooling over glass.

Wish me luck tomorrow. And feel free to buy stuff from my site if you want Christmas gifts that didn’t come from Target. I’m excited and very anxious about the reception. I’ve saved all my calories for the wine I’m drinking tonight for the nerves. My next post shall discuss the cruelty of counting calories, however two more pounds lost so far…

Akismet: Leave Mike alone.

At WorkI am an avid reader of The Grand View.

Mike, the writer of the blog is a nice guy. And who could dislike a man who calls his wife “his bride.” Read his about me, interesting fella. I usually don’t pay homage to someone via blog, but sometimes it’s necessary. Especially in this case because you see, Mike is constantly in my spam. Now, if I didn’t already know everyday that he would be in there, I wouldn’t look everyday. But there he is, every time he wants to say something–there he his. Sitting in spam timeout.

Akismet, why do you hate Mike? He’s a pretty good guy. Loves his family. Seen the world. Writes well. And has a great disposition. Akismet, please leave Mike alone. I know he didn’t do anything to you. So set him free. Let him comment at will over here without the shunning.

Here’s to you Mike, *cue the Budlight real Men of genius music*

Thursday??

So I cheated. Once 10:30 p.m. hit  and my father left my apartment after another long day of moving crap,  I cracked open a beer and decided to hop on my blog a day early from the hiatus. The move is FINALLY over. And I’ve got shit everywhere and don’t know where the hell it’s going.

The plus? AWESOME neighbors and a five-minute walk to the lake. I’ve made some sacrifices afterall! But yea, you guys are right, I think a house is calling my name next time.

You all left some fun comments I enjoyed. Thanks for stopping by. I’ll be sure to seethe opinions and smartass-ness tomorrow when I’m coherent. As well as catch up on all your blogging. And can I just add, a lot of people are Googling about working and booze. Search engine randomness strikes again.

(forgive any misspellings…my eyes are crossing…)

Religion, humor and Ms. Griffin

I’m keeping this a light weekend. My brain just can’t function while enduring this hellish move that by now I’m sure you are tired of hearing about. No worries because I’m about to be done by next week.

But I just have to give a big So What? to the fact that Kathy Griffin told Jesus to suck it. Read and hear the audio here at LAist. You will need to hear it there because you won’t hear it this weekend when the Emmy’s award show will be broadcasted on E! thanks to the god of censorship. It’s about time that bitch won something. Ms. Griffin is a Kathy at last year’s Emmy’shard-working, loud-mouth mess of hilarity in my book. And I just can’t understand why people can’t just get the joke in that speech. Now the Catholics are after her and she was raised Catholic with roots set in Irish pride. I trust she really doesn’t want Jesus to suck eggs.

I’m a person who HATES the whole “I would like to thank God” speech. It always seems so insincere. I think some “religious” people feel obligated to say it, even if they really don’t mean it. What they really mean to say is, “I would really like to thank myself for landing this role and kicking so much ass to get here, but I can’t say that because I have to thank God, Jesus then my mum.” I’m not saying NOT to thank God but I bet whoever is upstairs can sniff the bullshit from the people who claim to put God first. I’m going to get murdered for that last statement but I don’t think that you can disagree that there are phonies out there who don’t really walk their talk. Hence her dig at the supidity of people who insincerely thank God and use it so lightly.

I admire Griffin for her ballsy approach and her purposeful gaudiness. It got her far enough in life. Even on the “D” list.

I would like to thank cleaning fumes, morning cartoons, insomnia and dissillusion for this post. Thank you.

It may not mean a lot to you…

But reaching over 5,000 hits on a blog that isn’t really that old is kind of cool for me. I know you really cool bloggers well over 10,000 hits are probably not impressed! But I just had to say thanks. So here’s your reward.
