Foto Friday

It's time for Foto Friday! Unfortunately for all of you who are eagerly awaiting my photographic exploits, it's been a slow week. Too much work, not enough important stuff. Only three pics for you this week - but link up and show me yours! I'll show you mine next week. I promise.

 Hmmm. Interesting.

 The weather has turned.

Yep, I'm up and running around in a park - on live TV.

Want to show us what you did this week? Link up below!

Foto Friday

Now that Fill in the Blank Friday has switched from short answer to essay questions, I'm on the hunt for something to fill the void. Fortunately Lin suggested the idea of sharing the Instagram photos from the past week. So this is the first installment of what I am going to call, for the sake of alliteration, Foto Friday. With original Instagram captions. Enjoy - and if you want to share yours, feel free to link up!

 Yep, that's the world's best birthday card. 

 That's right, my pen has a mustache and a jaunty cap.

 My desktop background, which I consider #art. #photoadayjune

 Being sick is a bit better when you've got a Kleenex box that looks like a #Tetris game.

 Apparently @jessicavancity thinks I feel fabulous. Guess she doesn't know I'm sick.

 Awesome parking job. Really, stellar.

 I appreciate the positivity, but I'm sick. I don't want to go for anything. 
I want to go to sleep.

Today's #photoadayjune topic is #yellow. Does my purse count?
It was that or a Post-It.

Ten on Tuesday

1. I'm sick, so if this post includes lots of typos and random trailing off thoughts....

2. Since acquiring said sickness, I have used nearly an entire box of Kleenex at work. And another one at home. This cold is proving to be very bad for the environment.

3. My reading has stalled.... haven't finished a book in about a month. Wish life would slow down (or preferably pause) so I could get in some serious reading time!

4. Is this not the BEST BIRTHDAY CARD EVER? It's for my Dad, who is awesome and rides a motorcycle:

5. Nothing worse than going to work when you're sick, but unfortunately, due to a sadly and pathetically small number of sick days we get (6 per year, of which I have already used over 4), that's exactly what I'm doing.

6. I'm loving my new pen. Also available in bacon.

7. I have gotten woefully behind on my Photo A Day June Instagram posts. But I mean really. Door?

8. Lauren over at The Little Things We Do has been doing this awesome weekly thing called "Fill In the Blank Friday" for - oh, a long time. Most Fridays I participate. She recently decided to switch it up and ask one question rather than her typical 5+ that's more.... essay style, I suppose I'd call it. Though I get why she got bored and wanted to switch it up, I'm not really a fan of the new format because if I don't like the question, I can't just make a snarky/sarcastic remark and move on to the next one. So I don't think I'll be participating anymore.

9. Instead, Lin suggested doing a sort of Instagram photo roundup with all the images of the week. So I think I'll give Foto Friday a try this week. We'll see how it goes. 

10. Just for laughs:

Ten on Tuesday...ish

1. I'm a day late. And several dollars short. Sorry.

2. Is it just me, or is the world getting crazier and crazier? Between bath salts, various "zombie" attacks in the States and the Montreal killing video and our very own body parts in the mail case, I'm starting to feel like being a shut-in ain't all bad, particularly if you have cable.

3. I'm participating in that Instagram thing, Photo A Day June (#photoadayjune). If you'd like to join in, here are the topics:

4. Don't go to this movie. You might think it would be mildly amusing, but in reality if everyone on the planet watched this movie, the human race would die out after this generation.

5. I told Lin that I'm having trouble finishing my 10 things, so she wanted me to express outrage that Liam Hemsworth is marrying Miley Cyrus. I honestly don't care, but for her: *outrage*

6. Follow up to my Zombie Slipper fiasco - Thinkgeek customer service sent me a form letter about how they don't control customs, to which I replied that if they bothered to read my original email properly, they'd see I acknowledged that and it wasn't my main point. So they replied with a link to their shipping policy talking about cheaper shipping options. I said that I'd picked the cheapest available on checkout - so either their system is stupid and doesn't have all the options available, or that wasn't an option for some reason. Either way, it doesn't help me. And the guy says "oh, well there are size and weight restrictions." I'm like, "well why did you send me the link, then? You know what I ordered." I ended up getting very annoyed that they didn't just say thanks for the feedback and we'll take it into consideration, which was all I really wanted. So now I don't like Thinkgeek and won't shop there again. Warning to international Thinkgeek potential customers.

*Update: The Thinkgeek Twitter people sent me this:

7. Vancouver all week:

8. If you don't have a cat and are thinking about getting one, consider this. Last night I was woken up every 15-20 minutes until 3 AM by one of my cats running around, trying to get me to pet her, scratching the furniture and playing with the venetian blinds. Why didn't I lock her out of the bedroom, you ask? It's not like I didn't think of that. If I do, one of the other ones who doesn't like closed doors will scratch the door, meanwhile she'll stand outside it and whine while clawing up the carpet. Still want a cute little kitten? Didn't think so.

9. I'm totally exhausted - and it's only halfway through the week. I need about five weekends stacked on top of each other.

10. A valuable lesson that is usually learned the hard way:
