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…
I went out to the car to head off to work one morning in mid-January, and was met with this fabulous sunrise. It was one of those moments when I was glad the Lomo was in my purse.

Ohayocon was a great time! Almost like a mini-vacation. Very cool.
I’m currently working on adjusting and resizing the 30+ digital pics we took over the weekend. Until then, here’s a pic I just took of Aaron displaying his two prized purchases: his moogle hat and his Mr. Sparkle t-shirt.
Con pics and a review/narrative soon to come!
Remember how I said after Halloween that Mei likes pumpkin? Well, here are the pictures to prove it:
And, while I’m at it, here are a few more lomographs I’ve neglected to post:
This was the wintry view that greeted me from the window one day while reading in our second-floor Quiet Room at work.
One of my co-workers turned 50 the day after Thanksgiving, so a few of the girls in the office decorated the day before Thanksgiving (after he left work for the day), to make his birthday that much more memorable.
Autumn sunset over south Toledo—Tireman, to be exact.
Before I compose my rant on how wrong I was about the weather last night, take a look at how my neighborhood fared.
I took these photos around 6pm, after Aaron had left for work.

*this* was the biggest nightmare: braving our unplowed street
So, let’s just say I’m glad I don’t have to go anywhere tomorrow, and neither does Aaron. We can stay home, open presents, drink some decaf, and enjoy the astronomical electric bill—er, I mean, the warmth. :-/
As requested… I have delved into the drumcorps archives and dredged up the smuttiest and sleaziest drumcorps photos of the late 90’s! (And don’t forget… you asked for it!)
Here they are, in no particular order:
Here’s a teaser: just a little midriff.
Mmm, some more midriff. Check out that hot… um, chick. Yeah.
Chad shaved his head for Finals in ’95. That’s sort of “going topless”…
When I think of topless drumcorps, *this* is my fantasy. Mmm… tasty.
But these two fine specimens are more of the reality than the fantasy.
And finally: bottomless drumcorps. Or pantsless, if you prefer.
Finally… pictures from Aaron’s surprise party!
Since the slideshow doesn’t have captions, I’m also posting a Cast Of Characters:
