the story of an invisible girl

My sister asked me a few days ago, "Do you want a present?"

"Of course," I told her. What kind of question is that? Don't people always like presents?

It turned out that she'd found synchro picture frames at Target, and she wanted me to print out a nice skating photo for her in the appropriate size. If I would, she'd get a frame for me too. It's a pretty neat-looking frame, so I'm happy with the deal I made.

I have a stack of four cubes where I keep my sweaters. Actually, I have two stacks, but that's not relevant to this story. This morning I learned a valuable lesson: always keep enough sweaters in each cube so that there is not enough room for a cat to fit.

(Well, assuming you don't want cat hair all over the sweaters of course.

(Why do we call it cat hair, when cats are covered with fur not hair?))

I had a friend over a few days ago, and I offered him a beverage. He examined the wide selection of diet pop in my 'fridge. He doesn't like diet pop, but thought he'd try one anyway. So he asked me, "Which flavor of diet beverage is your least favorite?"

"The one I didn't buy," I informed him. Obviously.

I now have a whole slew of pirate pictures. I even have a CD with a picture of Dread Pirate Rennie on it! That's pretty cool.

Actually I have a fair number of con pictures in general. Although I brought a camera to the con, I never pulled it out of my backpack. Instead I just tried to convince people with cameras to take pictures for me and give me copies. I'd quickly pose with whatever friend was near me at the time and beg, "Take a picture of me and so-and-so please!"

That worked fairly well, surprisingly. Between people giving me copies, and images folks posted on the web, I now have a pretty decent collection of con digital memories. Not as many of my memories as if I'd taken my own, but more pics with me in them, so that makes up for it I'd say.

And that one that you didn't buy would be...what? Sizzling soda sewage? Diet monkey fur? :)

Eeeeeew! Haha! (: No, I don't like the clear diet sodas -- like diet spirte, for example. Mostly I like diet cola, although sometimes diet mt dew. And Propel water, I love that!

I'm more into the sparkling water lately...which are clear, but don't have the bland syrupy taste that diet sprite has...what's Propel? That might be somewhat similar.

Propel Fitness Water is made by Gatorade. It has only 10 calories per bottle, it's got some vitamins in it, and no carbonation. It's basically just lightly flavored water. I like it lots!

I'd like to see you try...

that on a vacation, I couldn't imagine attempting to give out my email address so many times just to get a picture of me on a hill at 11,000ft ;0) that also seems like it opens a whole new avenue for spam.

the easier trade off I found was taking pictures of others in exchange for one of me (with my own camera of course). It also including the proverbial person who always got left out.

btw, I'm back. Don't suppose you want to go to work for me on Monday?

Re: I'd like to see you try...

Well, it would be more accurate to say I tried to convince friends with cameras to take pictures for me. People who I already knew, and would see again, and who already had my email address.

I agree, it wouldn't work nearly as well on a vacation with strangers!

Nope, no interest in working for ya, sorry. (: I have my own annoying job to do on monday!

I have that same picture frame!! Wendy got it for me as a good luck present for Gemany and she glued rhinestones on it so it's real pretty.
I have the matching bag too.....I guess I'm a little synchro obsessed...

Who you, synchro obsessed??? Not possible! heehee.

Rhinestones sounds like a good idea, maybe I should spruce mine up as well. I don't have the bag, but lots of girls on the team had it last year. The bag didn't look like something I'd use, but I love the frame!
