Adventures with Dr. Lady Cutie Troublemaker

Life is in flux BIG TIME these days. I want to keep in touch with all of my peeps. The Internet is this beautiful thing. I can move to a brand new city and still stay in easy, near-daily contact with the people I love. When I feel connected to the people in my life that matter, I am unstoppable!

Oh, we had so much fun! And we all spent in the $35-$55 range. I’m SOOOO going back, even though I can think of basically nothing that I need!

New Year’s Eve Wii Bowling

By Abby at 2:39 pm on Monday, February 2, 2009

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.

Jake and Miss North Carolina in the Sunday Paper

By Abby at 8:09 pm on Sunday, January 18, 2009

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 my boy!

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!

Early Voting is COOL!

By Abby at 4:11 pm on Thursday, October 16, 2008

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?

I VOTED! Voter #818, NCCU campus, Durham, NC. on TwitPic

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.

This Year’s Jack-o’-Lanterns

By Abby at 9:50 am on Monday, October 13, 2008

This One's Mine

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.
