yammie is so beautiful. this is one of the only times i have been able to capture her, she's normally skittish and moves too fast for me to get a good photo. she looks so regal here. and you can't see that her teeth are missing.

i'm having an issue with my photos, though. in photoshop, they look great and then i save them as a jpeg from a raw file and poof. color-be-gone! and i am too lazy to fix it right now.


she's dreaming of big fat mice and fields of catnip.


here are two band photos that i took late at night (early in the morning?) for the boys. they are "ok." i would have liked to have had much better lighting, but you work with what you get! or have on hand...

madge's b-day gift! it's this awesome little desk organizer that looks very much like a slinky. i want to use it for brushes possibly, or something sewing related. the packing material was that great biodegradable stuff made from corn - i made a little dog! AND free dali cards! madge totally rocks my pants.


lots of excitement this weekend:

went to see the appleseed cast show in ybor. watched karma-in-action as the obnoxious guy in the crowd ended up punching a huge window out while trying to attack a poster. the bouncers ran out and threw him back inside while the cops were called.

unfortunately, we missed jacques & lisa's stupendous blender/daquiri/margarita party.

saturday morning was a flurry of wedding femininity at rachel's bridal shower. tea, scones, floral motifs and gifts. so lovely.

unfortunately, meaghan and fetal-owen were unable to make it down for the shower. we were very saddened. the only good was that i didn't have to clean the house....

saturday evening was spent celebrating dug's birthday. drinks at fuma bella and then sink or swim at the orpheum (where the punched-out window was covered by plywood). it's probably the most i've had to drink in a while, including at my own b-day party and i had a blast. jen, amy, ryan, dug and i danced the night away. AND i ran into my friend ben from high school! all in all, a great evening. i am actually sore today from all the boogie-ing.

we ignore the last 10 minutes where jen created stigmata on her person by falling on the trolley tracks and bleeding semi-profusely. i cheered her up (i hope) today by dropping off smallvile season 5 for her viewing pleasure.

Between Jane and Yammie, I get my full dose of kitty porn. Yammie is UH-DOOR-UH-BULL.

I like the band photos. The lamps outside are a cool touch.

Everyone has such cute kitties! I should post more about mine. Thanks for the inspiration.

Madge said...

Oh! I love what you did with the packaging from MoMA!

I too like the band pictures with the lamps on the porch steps. Bringing the inside out.

What what!
