5)process derby photos
6)process nebraska photos
7)process state fair photos
8)make art

10)write emails to the zillion people i need to write to
11)snuggle with the stets (but we talked about Mobsters on the phone instead of hanging out!!! lame!)
12)deposit my paychecks
13)get my photo gear ready for tomorrow

23)make a zine
24)dance
25)ANYTHING besides the time sucking activity i partook in.

and then literally 5 hours later i stand up to stretch and look around, and hey! there's a room behind me! a real world! i may not own six pump action shotguns or 4 restaurants that earn me $3650 every hour, but there's all this stuff which is actually real and i spent all evening doing absolutely nothing! dang, wouldn't i much rather messed around with all my crappy real stuff than stare at a computer screen and pretend i'm a bad ass mobster who has lots of money and guns? i'm not bad ass at all. that was lame, and i am ashamed of myself. this happens to me frequently, getting sucked into someone's blog, youtube, myspace, flickr, shopping for clothes and photo gear, etc etc... i'm going to be good for a while now, swear!!

Hey, yeah.. if you ever do drag yourself out of the time sucking vortex known as the internet, could you please do the rest of us a favor and brave returning long enough to tell the rest of us how to get out?

Yeah, I just got hooked up with digital cable (after going 2 1/2 years without TV). This show, Project Runway, sucked up 3 hours of my day...and it would've probably been more if I didn't have to go pick up my son from school. Argh!

And congratulations on becoming a registered voter!

Not to creep you out, but I googled your name today after telling some one about your photography, and low and behold... this blog was there. And I have instead of doing the million things I have to do tonight... like editing photographs and home-work, I read your beautiful blog, and it inspired me.
