not so deep thoughts

So I’m driving through the hills outside of Oceanside (?), flying along and blasting Bon Jovi, singing along at the top of my lungs, even though I have never liked Bon Jovi, and I had already spent a good chunk of the morning lost.  It didn’t even matter, I was on my way to go do a maternity photoshoot and I’m doing what I love.  So nothing could bring me down.  It went great, too.  Better than I had even expected.  I LOVE the pictures.  My little hobby is keeping me a lot busier than I’d expected it to, plus I’ve been working a lot, so I have gotten a little behind in general correspondence.  I’ve also had a little of what they call “writer’s block”. 

 

SO this is what I’ve been up to:

We still try to rollerblade twice a week, though we’re lucky lately to get there once. 

I finally cooked a big meal at my house for everybody. 

I watched season 2 of Deadwood on DVD.

I’m reading a book called “Mutant Message Down Under” about a walkabout with aborigines in the Australian outback.  I often spend my lunches reading, since that is sometimes the only time I get to read.

Jeannie and my brother just got engaged!  Last weekend.  You can go to her blog by clicking the link on my home page.  We are very excited, and after she gets finished with her thesis we can start on wedding plans. 

I’m shooting Asia’s best friend’s wedding on Oct 14th.

I am eating seaweed and rice every day at dinner.  I have no idea as to how much nutrition I am getting or missing out on, but it’s delish.  I come home craving it.

I went to Oktoberfest in Torrance on Fri, an event I seem to always miss out on.  People get REALLY into it.  I mean, REALLY.  We all just kinda joined in and became German for the night.  Okay, I AM German.  But I usually just try to blend in.  If there’s any one race I can’t stand, it’s fucking Germans.  But at a drunken barn dance like that, it doesn’t matter what you are and Germans are less of the assholes that they usually are when they’ve had a lot to drink.  OH but I did break a guy’s sunglasses on purpose.  What can I say, I’m German.

 

And this is what is on my mind lately:

The wedding.  I am so looking fwd to shooting it and then designing the album.

Photography in general.

Do I really need all this stuff?

Is Katie Holmes happy, even if it’s just because of the baby?  Naw I’m just kidding.  I don’t really care.

IF we provided a standard, normal library for Colorado City, with the basic classic books and the usual range of literature, would they just think we’re trying to brainwash their young?  I mean, seriously.  I was thinking about that this morning while I was getting in my car to go to work, and then my mind just wandered off.

How long can I go without washing my hair?

I miss yoga.  Maybe I should do that here.

Am I hurting my body with how little attention I pay to my eating habits, sometimes?  I mean dude, sometimes I just eat those little crumb donuts for breakfast, from the vending machine.  That’s awful.  Especially if I don’t follow it up with a healthy lunch. 

Anyway, I’m off to bed.  Work is keeping me exhausted lately but I love it.
