commute by numbers

this morning, on my way to work, i was sitting at a red light [1] near a highway overpass when suddenly, a man -- who'd previously been sitting in the passenger seat of the truck directly in front of me -- gets out [2], runs to the overpass, LEAPS ONTO THE GUARDRAIL [3], sticks the landing [4,5] [impressively, and thankfully], pulls a camera from his pocket, takes a picture of the decidedly non-scenic scenery [6], hops down from the GUARDRAIL OF POTENTIAL DOOM, runs back to the truck [7], and drives off [8].

progression of emotion key:
1. impatience [at the red light, as i was running late]
2. confusion
3. EXTREME PANIC [complete with audible swearing]
4. relief
5. anger at stupidity
6. puzzlement
7. boredom
8. ----------

photo despair

this is what i look like when forced to attend two meetings, back to back, without a break to refill my coffee. [i may actually be crying in the second photo.]

"i don't know. they just do that."

home again after my second trip to florida. it was altogether too warm [nearly 100 degrees everyday] but we had a lovely time nonetheless. i miss the endless eating of gummy men/bears/worms, the hours of watching goofy cartoon television and my numerous attempts at avoiding video games.

come home soon. you're too pale to live in the south.

travel prep

it should come as no surprise that a one-pound-plus bag of gummies is accompanying me on my trip.
