This is utterly silly, so I thought I’d share. It’s me and Jake on New Year’s Eve at Brian and Shannon’s house. Watching people play Wii games when you can’t see the screen they are watching is hilarious.
I’ve been working and shooting pictures and twittering rather than blogging lately. I blog when I feel like it, so that means constantly or never, depending on my mood. I’m fine with that. Breaking the blog silence to share a really cute picture of Jake that was in the N&O this morning:
That’s him with Miss North Carolina. The picture was taken back in the summer, before we were dating. At the time, Jake blogged about the experience on his blog.
There’s video of the event, too:
If you watch and listen carefully around 47 seconds in, you can see me walk past and hear me say, “Fairy”! I had just spotted my friend Fairy Brutal of the Carolina Rollergirls!
See? I’m doing it. Ayse’s doing it. A bunch of other people at the mall are doing it. If you early vote, then you can spend election day volunteering to get OTHER people to the polls. That’s what I’m doing. For once, I’d like to show the rest of the world that we give a shit about our government. Is that so wrong?
Here are the Wake County Early Voting Locations. Also, how weird is it that I voted at a mall?!! It was great to see such a fine turnout on Day One of early voting.
I’m pretty proud of it, although yesterday, I was wishing so hard I’d picked an easier template. This one took FOREVER! I liked Lalitree’s best. She really tended to to the way the pumpkin “meat” curved to the inside of the pumpkin, so the light REALLY popped once the candle was inside. Stunning!
Thanks for the awesome part, Katy and JD! Lots more pictures here.
