Quickie and more pictures.
Things are... good. Last two evenings have been good. Yesterday was pretty good in general though I didn't do any of the stuff sorting I wanted but it did end with an exceedingly pleasant email. No movies tonight. They are the motivation killer. Broken Flowers, by the way, is hilarious. I also cooked a fantastic dinner. I made fresh bruschetta (with nifty organic mozarella) and pork meatballs, spiced with rosemary, garlic powder, thyme, salt and pepper. I pan fried the meat balls and added them to the watercress soup I made last week. I cannot explain how amazing it was. I think I'm really getting this cooking thing.

Today looks promising. It started with a pile of happy compliments from my last posts and another nifty email. (You know who you are that sent it.) Interesting work to do today and a design meeting in verona.
How can it be bad when I end the day in a meeting room named "Zen?" Well, this is assuming I can find it sooner this time. :)


I'm not exactly certain how she emphasized my crotch in that first one. I certainly understand why but how must be a ptrick of the camera. :) Nifty red chair provided by Barriques on the square.

I played with sepia tones (obviously). I don't quite get why people use sepia filters yet as I haven't made anything look better with them. It makes me look like a bronze statue. Or maybe a Bronze God!
Maybe. Just maybe...

PS: Hello to a few new lurkers. :P

Oooh, the food sounds really good. I approve.

I was impressed that it worked so well. Though the bruschetta cut up the top of my mouth a little.

When I make sandwiches at home, I like to extra-toast some really grainy bread, then it cuts the top of my mouth a little, too, above my teeth, and I can think back and think, "Man, the texture of that sandwich was AMAZING!"

Really.

Stupid Barriques. I sit down and their sofa slides out from under me; I order, receive, savor, cool, sip and finally finish every drop of my chai and STILL have to wait ten minutes for the tiniest cheese sandwich in town. Like the other five people waiting at the counter with their arms crossed.

*shakes fist*

Susssssaaaaaaannah, you are everywhere *tease*

I wanted to comment since I don't wish to be a "lurker". I added you because of Kate *smile*

Hi!
I noticed you last night. I even poked through your journal!

Meshel's my friend whose jewelry I stole to wear to the dinner. :) I moved to Madison for her and we lived together for 5 years.

AH! She's the one with gobs and gobs nifty costume jewelry. Cool beans. i like stories made flesh. Well... made livejournal, at least.
Is she the one you told about me when we met in March last year? ;)
evilevi From: evilevi Date: May 3rd, 2006 06:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
I have no recollection of telling you about anyone- I really must have been flustered. What did I say?
abmann From: abmann Date: May 3rd, 2006 07:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
Stuff about gobs and gobs of jewelry. I may be embellishing for effect. :P
evilevi From: evilevi Date: May 3rd, 2006 05:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
And hiddenbook is also a close friend and confidante of mine. Those are her breasts I'm resting my head on in the icon. ;)

I found out who she was from ladymeshel's public Scrapbook pics. I did much nosing 'round last night.
evilevi From: evilevi Date: May 3rd, 2006 06:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
She's also the best kisser in the universe. Though I guess I can think of one place you could have nosed around to find that out. Wait, that doesn't sound right...

Yeah, they take forever to get a sammich made, especially the one on PD. I was unimpressed with the one I had; they constructed it poorly so the tastey mushroom bits were only on one side. UNACCEPTABLE!

I am fit like fiddle!

hot stuff.

err... I meant the chair :)

We women like crotch emphasizing shots... I have a spectacular one of Grant - I didn't mean it like that but after I downloaded the pictures and was looking at the them for the first time (with the family, of course) it became obvious. And very very uncomfortable. If I was at home, I would upload it to show... or rather, if I was at home and "at home" had an internet connection...
CURSES.

I'm not exactly certain how she emphasized my crotch in that first one.

your jeans are lighter than your shirt, and if the camera was auto-focusing, it picked the lighter area as a focuspoint, emphasizing said package.

sepia is overdone, and rarely used correctly. one of the biggest problems i have with it are color images (or images from color digicams) that are filtered black and white or sepia without then adjusting for contrast.

too many greys just makes for a muddy picture.
