post and run
very hectic here today, so no time for a "real" post.

on the good news front, i found a place to live! hooray! on the bad news front, i'm moving sunday, and still haven't quite packed everything. okay...i still haven't packed...much. okay, i suck at the whole packing thing, period.

i finished my photos for the 26 things scavenger hunt. this is especially good timing, as my computer is now toast. burned, black, cripsy toast. like, won't boot up all the way toast. like win32.sys error toast. like won't even let you do a new installation of windows toast.

i'm starting to sound like one of those yogurt commercials.

anyway, you'd think that since i work in an it department, i would know how to fix my computer, thereby rescuing all of my photos and writing and other creative-type documents that i saved on the computer...and only on the computer. yeah, you'd think that, wouldn't you? well, you'd be dead wrong. i'm a software girl. end user girl. win32.sys?? all i know is: toast. i just want my files, you satanic machine! give me back my files!

um, anyway, it's not too late if you wanna find
26 things yourself
. you can submit your photos through the month of august...so, there's still plenty of time. as long as your computer isn't toast like mine.

on a wholly unrelated note, i love to people watch. specifically, i love to people watch and then imagine these little stories about these people. where they're going. what secrets they have. what they like on their pizza. you know, stuff like that. so, since i like doing that kind of stuff, i thought i'd continue a vibe that my friend, cw started this week [you might have to scroll a bit. i can never get his entry links to work right. probably something he's doing. certainly not anything i'm doing. perish the thought.]. so, in keeping with the people watching/inventing life stories thing, i visited hello natalie this morning. the story of the site is fascinating to me -- be sure to read the "about natalie" page to understand the deal. basically, the site owner found these photo albums at a thrift store, filled with photos of this woman and her friends. i wasn't dazzled by many of the posted comments, but it's a fun creative exercise to try and invent a story to go with each picture and and each person. plus, today's photo has boobage action, and i know that's a big plus for a significant segment of my readers.

on to other things...despite the indisputable randomness of this post, i was thinking i might like a new tagline. my one-year-of-blogging anniversary is coming up soon, and i was thinking of a site overhaul as a celebration. including a new tagline. and a more comprehensive keeping up with reciprocal links [sorry, kids...i really suck at that]. so, the tagline thing is wide open to suggestions.

and, while i'm thinking of it, a while back someone -- i'm almost sure it was natalie [no, not the same natalie as the "hello natalie". different natalie.] suggested that every tuesday you leave a comment on every blog you read. i like that. and it's tuesday. so, you know...comment your brains out. give a little comment love. spread it around. you'll feel good.

i'm swamped at work, spending most free time packing and unable to get online in the evenings to post, obviously, so i'll be a sporadic poster for the next week or so. not that i've been updating with any real consistency since everything went to hell in a handbasket, but i just thought i'd mention it.
