antics in austin

Part 2: Me and my most lovely best ladies (and a really nice guy named Lance)! We ate lots of food from local restaurants. We drank lots of local drinks. We even met a local celebrity (see the thong-clad man below). I think that qualifies us as honorary locals, right?

We're quite the experience, I've been told. Just throw the three of us together, add a drop or two of Jim Beam, mix it all up, and watch the wackiness ensue. We might have adopted Florida names for the week—because our rental car's plates were from Florida, duh! You can just call me Phyllis. My cohorts answer to Janis & Shirley.

Because we're so intense.

They're REALLY good tacos!His name is Leslie, and yes he's for real. I hear he almost got elected mayor as a write-in candidate. Keepin' Austin Wierd, I suppose.What guns? These guns! (Carrie's are bigger than my head, oh well)She looks tough, but she's pretty gooey on the inside.Here I am at the BEST. WATERPARK. EVER. (Schlitterbahn) Notice my pasty, pasty skin. When I took my shirt off, I'm pretty sure my skin acted as a beacon that was viewable from outerspace. Look! It's the very nice Mr. Lance....See, gooey on the inside!And she's quite the hairdresser these days.
Angie gets pretty, per usual.
This one about sums it up, methinks. fierce.

the stale taste of recycled air

Well, I'm getting settled back at home. I had an amazing time in Texas. I have some great photos of me and my friends, and unfortunately, little else. I guess that's what happens when you go to visit one of your closest friends. You spend all your time drinking each other in, and little time site seeing.

Here's part one of my trip to Austin. the sky:

putting the "happy" in "happy hour"

the problem with having a fancy camera is people assume you know alot about said camera. Thus was the case at the Dayton Creative Syndicate happy hour that I guest photographed this evening. That aside, I had a super fun time taking pics of my friends & associates, and pretending I knew what people were talking about as they made friendly conversation about my Canon. What I took away was, I really need to read the users manual.

because ranunculus is a fun word to say

i will not be happy until i have this.

Okay, so I can't sew... Maybe I already have a perfectly adequate Singer sewing machine that is collecting dust in a corner somewhere in my house. BUT! I really, really want to learn to sew. And my sewing machine looks startlingly dull compared to this vintage-inspired, wonderful gem of a gadget.

Oh yes, it will be mine. someday.

getting our hike on...

Some shots from our woodland stroll this weekend (Yellow Springs, Ohio)
I don't know why they call it the Yellow Springs, when it is so obviously orange. I don't think Orange Springs has a bad ring to it. In the founding days of the region, it was believed that the springs had special healing powers. A hotel was even erected next to the Spring to accomodate all the visitors to the magical waters. I suspect that it might help with anemia, as it tastes overwhelmingly of iron.Rodger becomes one with the trees.

leftovers from sweet sentiments

Feels like my life has been on hold for the last week. But it's monday, and life goes on. Beautiful things are blooming, and I have to keep moving.
