Myself and Amy, before heading out to lunch and a movie with Aaron. Two days after my birthday, and it’s snowing like a motherfucker. o.O See, Aaron? I *told* you it could happen, and not just in the snowbelt.
Other highlights of the weekend: opening presents from Christmas and Amy’s birthday; dinner with Amy, Aaron, Mark, and myself at Dolly & Joe’s; Amy’s and my three-hour discussion at Grounds For Thought in BG; and, of course, watching Sin City at Levis Commons.

At the Grand Opening of Books-A-Million, Levis Commons, Perrysburg. Some weekend in late February / early March.
Per Sheryl’s request: a photo of my cute skirtness. It didn’t come out quite so well, but you get the idea.
This kicks our Trek fish‘s ass. Seen at the Grand Opening of Books A Million at Levis Commons in Perrysburg.
As Erk reminded me a few days ago, Aaron and I moved into our house exactly one year ago Monday.
I still wish I’d kept the digital camera handy during the move, so I could have taken pictures of the perfectly-packed 24-foot giant U-Haul, or the inside of our empty apartment, or the all-volunteer moving crew at their complimentary Easystreet lunch.
I do have some other pictures of interest, though:
Our house, at inspection time (February 2004)
The aftermath of getting the U-Haul stuck in the mud across the street from our new house
Our living room, after we got the furniture in place, one year before we got the widescreen TV
So, yeah. Happy one year in the house to us! (Only 29 more years of house payments to go…)

Anyone who knows how big that damn orange lamp is can truly appreciate the scope and magnitude of our new purchase. Holy shit.
I’ve gone entirely too long without posting a cute Mei pic. So, here you go: Mei looking all sleepy on the chair in the living room, sometime last month.
Mei was unimpressed with the annual Christmas portrait experience, and refused to sit still until the self-timer would fire. Afterward, of course, she was content to lounge by the presents.
Here’s an alternate version, with some artsy color tricks. Nothing fancy, but it adds a little something different. Skin tones still aren’t quite right, but… *shrug* Artistic license? Sure…
After yesterday’s disappointment with A&M Photo World, I’ve been contemplating whether I would really use my new toy, once I ever manage to save up a grand to get it. I don’t think this is a case of ‘sour grapes’—it’s more of the usual process I go through when I’m about to buy a big-ticket item.
The big question: would I use it?
