Neko Case put on a good show last night. We had some nice standing room at the very front! Good thing, cuz otherwise I wouldn't have been able to see anything...and surely I'd have come home grumpy. The trade off: too close to the speakers, I kinda have a headache.

I think...

In case you want to know what I'm thinking more often than when I blog about it, you can follow me on Twitter. I might be boring. See the sidebar button? The birdie is so cute.

the betrayal

Number 66 of my photo scavenger hung is 'a dog.' Perfect, I thought. I'll just get a great shot of my lovely Zibby. After all my trying, the lighting was bad and he wouldn't hold still for long enough. This was the best I could do:

The bottom two are the best contenders for scavenger hunt inclusion, but I'm just not thrilled about either of them. Amid my struggle, I met the local quilt shop dog, Stella. She's a 3 month old miniature Shih Tzu (is that even possible?). Just look at her!

So that was my betrayal. I didn't love my pictures of Zibby and couldn't resist using Stella and the picture on the left. Oh Zibby, please forgive me!

my new lovely

Don't you love my new purse? That's okay if you don't. It's so smooth and smells like soft leather! It even does an awesome diagonal sling making my bike riding a million times easier. I'm so happy I could eat it!

more from sh 101

We had a nice day on Saturday at the farmer's market. I even got a few good pics for the flickr scavenger hunt. We also walked around the Gateway and Temple Square. We spent the rest of the day watching the Olympics. It was a great day.

#88 a license plate
(how about 48 license plates?)
#47 a place of worship

#48 the tallest building in your city

#71 summer

I'm Twitching

I wanted Twitch to win. What do you mean I can't complain? Oh right, I didn't even vote. But still, I was pulling for Twitch. I am happy for Joshua though.

(this is Twitch)

I love the way the finale works, how they show all the judges' favorite dances. My favorite was this one, hands down:

Scavenger Hunt 101

I jointed a Flickr group called Scavenger Hunt 101. There is a list of 100 things to find and take photos of. Here are some of my favorite shots so far:

#85 your favorite past time/hobby/interest

#23 a flower
I mostly love the sprinkler in the background

#13 someone wearing polka dots
i could have used this one for #98, your favorite article of clothing, but no duplicates allowed!

#74 food growing
one of those stringy things on a cucumber plant

This is the first time I've ever experimented with photography. It's fun!
You can see the rest of my submitted photos here.

Brooks showed me this video a few weeks ago and I bawled through the whole thing.

however many triathlons

beep beep!

Lately I've been wishing my bike had a horn on it so I can honk at all the cars that nearly run me over, or all the people that don't walk in straight lines on the sidewalk. And now you're thinking: "but bikes don't belong on the sidewalk!" Indeed, but crusier bikes certainly don't belong on the street.
If I can't have a horn, I'll take a handle bar bakset. And instead of honking at people, I can throw things at them!
