Jack-o-vision

This weekend has just kicked large amounts of butt. Friday was a flurry of baking and tasty foods - we boiled 10 pounds of potatoes - with a trip to The Nitty Gritty to chill with friends.

Saturday we skipped the market as our fridge s over-full of food. Much relaxing in the morning and finishing of potato salad before heading off to Vilas Zoo for jackshoegazer's Getting Old Day Scavenger Hunt and Grill Day. Fox and I failed miserably to complete the scavenger hunt a the zoo. But that's ok. We have extra pictures of monkeys to show for it.

Otherwise, fun times were had (ah passive voice!)with (WARNING: LJ name dropping ahead) sasha_feather, Eathan (JSG's son), antarcticlust, kiwikat and Brian of no LJ, hellocthulhu, were_duck, two other people who's names I forget, the infamous brdgt who like everyone I know now posts about constantly, labelle77, blackdreams and family and sufferingbrian. I guess jackshoegazer was there too or something. I forget because of bean bags and brats. Whatev.

Following that was Hellboy 2 with various people and then, um, stuff in the evening involving questionably moral goings-on. It was nice. I was lazy most of the night because of it.

Today? Today is nothing. I should probably get my fat butt to the gym but that requires pants, without which I currently sit. I've also got 200 photos to edit from yesterday along with more from the trip to the Capitol last week.

OH! Yes. About the Capitol. They contacted me about sending them photos for new postcards in August. They print once a year and new about my work from the Isthmus and various other inquiries from past photos shoots (I never cease bothering them about various building details). So, I may make a huge sale to the state or, alternately, give them printing rights to some shots in order to stamp my name and contact info all over them. Either way, seem really good for me. :)

Photo:
I caught hat I think is JSG's self image. :D Vaguely super-hero. The camera I snatched to capture in HDR and thought the Diptych is neat. I'm not sure what I think about juxtaposing an HDR with regular photo. In this case, I think it works because of the pose but it would look better had I gotten the proper shots for HDR of jackshoegazer. I still like it though.

Right. Back to this pantsless thing.
Note! I'm currently uploading 200mb of party photos. Photo post coming later. :D

It has been a great weekend. The wear has been just incredible. Partly sunny. Low humidity. Mid-seventies. Lovely.

I also went to the zoo finally. :)

Brian has an lj, he just doesn't use it. But I've told you that 80 times already just the same way I tell you everything: over and over.

Questionably moral!? Pshaw. My personal morality had nothing comprimised, I'm a lady. A hung over lady. But I still went to the gym (swam a mile) so nanny nanny boo boo.

I agree about the pose, I think it's just about right.

I'll questionably moral you.
kiwikat From: kiwikat Date: July 14th, 2008 03:29 am (UTC) (Link)
I wish you wouldn't. It gets my feathers all ruffled and then I have to preen myself for HOURS. Most bothersome.
blackdreams From: blackdreams Date: July 14th, 2008 05:33 am (UTC) (Link)
And YOU!
(Read convo below)
You are HILLARIOUS! I was quiet to you too, but you are just as sarcastic as I (when not shy) am. I was just listening to you and your husband and guy with long hair who I didn't know....that was funny. I was thoroughly amused. I should've talked to you more. But yeah, it takes a few drinks and no child around to really get loose and social.
kiwikat From: kiwikat Date: July 14th, 2008 02:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
I was so glad to see you there, I'm glad you came! The longhair guy is Dan, twilightreader. I just met him at the partay but he seems quite nice. He's brdgt's boyfriend.

I can be exactly the same way, shy until I've had a drink or two. Of course I did have a drink or two at the picnic, so it makes sense that I loosened up. : )
blackdreams From: blackdreams Date: July 14th, 2008 03:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, I didn't know he was Brigit's Boyfriend, I thought he was her roomate. Hmm.
Well, I'm sure we'll get 2nd or 3rd chances since we all know a lot of the same people. :)
blackdreams From: blackdreams Date: July 14th, 2008 03:14 am (UTC) (Link)
Nice to meet you finally, I know we didn't really say much, but still. ;)
abmann From: abmann Date: July 14th, 2008 03:21 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, I realized that after the whole affair finished that, after months of me stalking you and forcing useless advice, I didn't, like, follow up and make any conversation. Some times I just go dumb?
blackdreams From: blackdreams Date: July 14th, 2008 05:29 am (UTC) (Link)
[laugh] Yeah.
You know what I thought the whole time too?
Typical.
By that I mean, all of us on LJ, most of us are LJ friends, yet put us together in person and awkwardness ensues.
I'm actually really shy in groups of people. Plus, you know, I had to take my turns in keeping an eye on my kid.
blackdreams From: blackdreams Date: July 14th, 2008 05:30 am (UTC) (Link)
Plus, you not recognizing me I realized I must make myself look a lot better in my icons [laugh]
kiwikat From: kiwikat Date: July 14th, 2008 02:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
Me too, I look like a different person in all picnic photos. : )
blackdreams From: blackdreams Date: July 14th, 2008 03:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
Actually I think you look just like you do in your icons and online pics. (That's good by the way)
abmann From: abmann Date: July 14th, 2008 03:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
I felt totally dumb for not recognizing you. I blame your giant sunglasses obscuring 215% of your face.
blackdreams From: blackdreams Date: July 14th, 2008 03:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
[laugh] Yeah, but if you recall I took them off when Kat introduced us, and you were all "nice to meet you" with no recognition on your face at all. That's when I said, "I'm blackdreams bitch!"
Ok, I didn't really say that.

So...there.
abmann From: abmann Date: July 14th, 2008 03:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
SHUSH!
blackdreams From: blackdreams Date: July 14th, 2008 03:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
I forgive you
