Where The Hell Have You Been?

24 08 2008

 I know, I have been gone a long time. What have I been doing? Well, I have been in here;

 SLM1 said to me a couple of weeks ago, ” Oh my GOD! You HAVE to read this book!” It took me awhile to get to it and once I started it took me awhile to get in to it, but once I did I was hooked. 

 Things I didn’t do because of this book; socialize, answer my phone, eat, sleep, and watch baseball. Told ya I was hooked! It was a really good book and interestingly enough, Chili’s MIL read it twice. Now I have something to talk to her about. Cool.

 Also, last weekend we had our first annual Lobster Fest. It was a ton of fun even though we got an hours worth of pouring rain. As a result, we had to cook inside. As a result of cooking inside, the house smelled for days. The Room-Mate did the cooking but I had to put the lobsters in. She couldn’t bring herself to do it. 

 No, I wasn’t afraid to touch the lobster. I was afraid of burning myself with boiling water though.

 Yesterday, Chili and I went down to visit with Gerry of Two Blue Day to visit with him and his peeps. We had a lovely day! Even though his honey told me not to say it, I’m gonna; Gerry is a very nice man. He is a wealth of knowledge about a wide variety of topics and he is one funny dude. That’s all I’m going to say because if his head explodes it would make a large mess and his honey would be mad at me. 

 Gerry spent a lot of time teaching Chili and I about the art of picture taking. Here two versions of the same picture;

 Above is the original shot.

 This was my edit. I only cropped it and messed with the exposure a bit using the tools Flickr offers. How did I do?

 Thanks Gerry, for having us!
