It's just one of those weeks...busy and distracted so no pictures yesterday. Sometimes I borrow Kurt's photos but even he didn't take any. I even said to myself last night "after Harper goes to sleep I'll take a picture of something random" but then she wouldn't go to sleep right away and when she finally did I was pooped and went right to bed and forgot.
I can't believe that Safety Graphic Fun is almost two years old! November 27th is the actual anniversary and I'm having some fun contests this month to celebrate. Go check out the site and enter to win!
Since I don't have much in the way of updates for you, and no new LOLcats to entertain you, I'll send you over to Safety Graphic Fun. Have you been lately? It's the one thing, no matter how busy I am, that I never get behind on. Enjoy. (Click here or click the picture!)
Grateful for the job and income, truly. And in week three of my six week plan things are moving forward -- this is good. I'm actually enjoying using the Wii Fit and find that an hour has gone by quickly and I have sore muscles the next day. All good things.
The one thing I have a shortage of is time. Time to blog here.
So please enjoy this post-birthday LOLcat while you wait for the return of my scintillating blog posts.
One of the most
common things I hear is, "I'd like to do something remarkable like that,
but my xyz won't let me." Where xyz = my boss, my publisher, my partner,
my licensor, my franchisor, etc.
Well, you can
fail by going along with that and not doing it, or you can do it, cause a
ruckus and work things out later.
In my experience,
once it's clear you're willing (not just willing, but itching, moving, and yes,
implementing) without them, things start to happen. People are rarely willing
to step up and stop you, and often just waiting to follow someone crazy enough
to actually do something.
I'm going. Come along
if you like.

Thank you Mr. Godin for reminding me of what I have to do.
We arrived in the Pacific Northwest for a record breaking heat wave. We stayed overnight one night in Port Townsend and enjoyed the pretty view and great company of friend's parents in town.
I had a mini-Seabury Class of 85 reunion with Steve and Courtney. The visit was way too short!
Another blogger field trip resulted in a new tattoo. Fun day!
I got to celebrate the baptism of a good friend's son. Sweet ceremony. Sadly, this dear boy's grandpa died a few months later and we celebrated that amazing life with a funeral in December.
Later in August:
In September I got to meet internets superstar, Ben Huh. I also learned a lot of great stuff from him.
A gang of us got together in September to celebrate our 20+ year long friendships -- one that started at LMU in the late 80's. So much fun to get together and eat El Tarasco's!
Then I left LA to go to work in Northern Ireland on a tv pilot. More importantly, I met Elvis at the Belfast International Airport.
Kurt came to visit for about 10 days and we toured the North coast, Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede bridge. Great weekend adventures...
...and plenty of Guinness!
Of course I was working. Here's another shot of me on set.
In November, Safety Graphic Fun celebrated it's first anniversary. Here's hoping we can get to the 2nd!
I got home from the shoot in Northern Ireland just before Thanksgiving and we flew to North Carolina to cook turkey and celebrate with great friends.
Just after Thanksgiving I was on another work trip to Montana and Oregon. I made a snow angel on Ted Turner's ranch...
...and generally spent time looking like this as the scenery was so lovely.
Finally. Finally. Finally. I got to come home. Three weeks before Christmas I could unpack and put my suitcases away. Heaven. Kurt and I both worked pretty full on until about December 24th. Bunny kept the Christmas tree monitored.
Now we are sliding gently into 2010 with many creative irons in the fire and resolutions/goals/plans/intentions to have much to review and relive in one year's time.
Thanks to all my family, friends and new friends/fans who read this blog and send love and support. You all really held me up when I was feeling down in 2009 and I'm grateful to you. Thank you for making 2009 a year full of friendship and joy.
I live in Los Angeles. In the summer of 2006 I worked in Mexico City. Instead of sending out giant emails full of photos to friends and families, I started this blog. The summer turned out to be a crazy one and this blog and my camera kept me sane. I didn't want to stop observing and writing when I got home to LA, so I kept the blog going.
