Play-Doh and Crayons

Sorry, couldn't pick just one.
Antioch, CA

I had an ALL STAFF meeting today and there was Play-Doh and Crayons on all of the tables to "entertain" us during the meeting. At the end, my department took it all so that it can be used in therapy. Tomorrow, for work, I will sort it by color and put it in bigger containers. I love my job.

Antioch, CA

This is my Puppy from my childhood. He went with me to every surgery, hospitalization, and doctor's appointment I ever had. My mother sewed his ears and tail several times before eventually she gave up. I wouldn't get a shot unless Puppy was getting a shot as well - so Puppy has gotten poked by nearly as many as needles as I have. Great companion.

Oakley, CA

This is graffiti on the sidewalk near work. It used to say more and include a picture of what Phillip was sucking but the city of Oakley erased it. Now It just points to Phillip as being a chubby chaser.

Any way, every day I get out of my car and I think about Phillip. I wonder who Phillip really is and how much fat does he like to suck. And what type....cow fat, baby fat, political fat...I wish I knew who this particular Phillip is so we could get to the bottom of Phillip's fat fetish.

Me in Art

I know this is posted somewhere else, but I can't find it and I need the link. This is from when I was a 'nude' model at BYU-Idaho.

Like Han Solo

Antioch, CA

For the second time in my life - I was part of an art project. (this is my first time) My friend Kate was taking a ceramics class this semester and the semester long project was to sculpt someone's face using clay. So I sent her some pictures and this is what she came up with.

Carmel Covered Sky

I've had the first 30 seconds of this song stuck in my head all day, so I had to take a picture of a sunset tonight. Sorry for the power lines and I'm sorry for yet another sunset picture.

Pine Fog

Oakley, CA

So I could have probably framed this better, but I was running late for work after my first photo location didn't turn out. Oh Well.



The bruise on the back of my leg. It hurts more today than Yesterday.

Bomb Questions

Oakley CA

Someone called in a bomb threat at the middle school next door to where I work. So on my 5th day of work I had the opportunity to review the questions I'm supposed to ask when someone calls with a bomb threat. My favorite is "where do you live?" I wonder how many people are so smart to build the bomb but too dumb to forget to tell people where they live.

A friend asked about my hair from yesterday's PAD, so here is a more up close picture of me. I was in the Oakley office today playing with the mirror.

daily glasses

Antioch, CA

In an effort to reduce the number of dishes we wash - everyone in my apartment (and frequent visitors) are given assigned glasses. We wash the glasses once a week. The two blue ones are mine (water and juice); the glass one is John's; and the grey plastic one is Tina's.

Bread to Be

Antioch, CA

I miss the heat from summer. It took FOREVER for these to ripen.

Except for Melinda - I've never met any of the people that I view Photo A Day blogs with. Which made church interesting today. Suddenly in Sacrament I looked up and saw a little girl who I had only seen online before. It was a weird experience telling the mother that I recognized her child from this picture.

The Bay - After the storm

Oakland CA

Friday, January 4, 2008

My mind in the gutter

Martinez, CA

Today in California we had a major storm come in and cause havoc. Two out of the 5 major bridges got shut down. Of those two - one had 4 (!) tractor trailer rigs get blown over. We had wind gusts of 40 to 80 mhp across the area and across the bridges.

I had to go to Martinez to sign some papers for a new job I start on Monday. In an act my father will probably not consider me wise for doing, I wandered down to the ocean to see how the storm had affected the beach. Take a look at the BTC pictures to see a comparison between the beach today and the beach in September. Please note that the log shown in the September picture I saw floating out in another part of the bay.
