I know my last post was a list. I’M SORRY I AM VERY BUSY. But I have some things to share with you, all of which you will LURRRRRV. So here you go…
My darling, dear friend and co-contributor on RVANews, Patience, has just launched a website highlighting her new work as a birth photographer. Please, please go look at it. There is nothing that will make you squeamish. It is all beautiful and wonderful and making-you-want-to-have-babies-ful.
Ross and I recently bought a new camera because our old one (after several years of serving us well) went kaput. We’re still in the honeymoon phase with it, meaning we use it all the effing time. Which is great when you have a cute BAYBEE. Ross has taken and uploaded some great shots of JR, and he also managed to capture his most recent milestone on video. Along with some quality baby babbling.
My friend Jenny has recently started a blog. Go give her some clicky love.
Ever since we saw Public Enemies (which was kinda slow, pretty good, oh hello, Mr. Depp, yes I will run off with you, especially if you hold on to the Southern-ish accent) I’ve been mildly obsessed with John Dillinger. Well maybe not with him specifically, but more with the era and the whole “glamourized criminal” type thing. Particularly the nicknames people had: Baby Face Nelson, Pretty Boy Floyd, guys who were called “Red.” I’ve decided that if we were gansters, Ross would be called “Bottlecap Catrow,” due to his tendency to leave them everywhere; they could be like his calling card. I haven’t zeroed in on a name for myself yet. Send me some ideas, and be sure to think up one for yourself. Anyway, I encourage yourself to get lost on Wikipedia looking at that stuff. It’s fascinating.
And finally, here’s a video tribute to the late, great John Hughes. A montage set to Teenage Wasteland. Because sometimes things *are* perfect.
