Isn't that the cutest "moo face" you've ever seen? Growing up I always defended that I was sending someone a kiss, but my siblings insist that I am pretending to be a cow. It's funnier that way, so
One of my favorite ways to unwind after a long day is to grab some tea, get comfy on the couch, and stalk facebook for Ellen Degeneres videos. She is just hilarious and has a bazillion ridiculous segments on her show that are bound to make me laugh until I forget my sorrows. Came across this one yesterday that I thought was particularily good. I dedicate this video to my dear cousin Chris who once told me how people were selling a bag full of japanese trash on Ebay! By the way, I've never really used craigslist, but now it's safe to say I'm a little bit scared!

Ah, it's Friday again and I get another chance to show off what I think to be interesting, funny, or whatever I want. I have to admit that this is proving to be a bit of a challenge. For one I feel like I could share millions or photos or videos, for another, I have a tough time making a decision. Choosing the photo for this week was pretty easy though. Whenever I think of a hilarious photo, this is one of the first to come to mind. As a photojournalist I feel like my mission is to be able to capture moments and emotion as they happen. I want my photos to transmit a certain feeling or get a certain reaction. I can honestly say this this photo couldn't be posed. Just a little back story: This what at my sister Amber's birthday last year. My younger sister got her some of those prank candles that turn back on a million times after you blow them out.
Hence the face! :)
A good friend of mine shared this video on facebook today. I have to admit that I am impressed. I feel like I would probably would hit the gym a whole lot more if it meant doing some of this in the process. I am seriously impressed by these people in two different levels: 1) because I am really clumsy and not so coordinated and could never do something like that (I've been known for standing and suddenly, without moving, losing my balance and start tipping over!) 2) I love creativity, and I love how creative this is. I love that someone had the idea to create a center where people can literally jump off the walls.
Happy Friday everyone!

The Photo: This week I have picked this ridiculous photo of me and my friend Squiggs. We go way back (I think we met when I was 15) and she spent the first couple of years (when I was mostly friends with her older sister) pretending like she didn't like me. Scratch that, like she couldnt stand me. Of course it was all a front. Anyway, she loves me. On my last visit last summer, on my last day in the US I was crashing at her house. Because it was a school night (and she is a couple years younger than me, and my inner child is very much outside most of the time) we were supposed to be sleeping, and were instead being really quiet. It's hard to be really quiet while taking pictures of ourselves in photobooth. Especially when one of the pictures turns out like this. So... fast forward to today. When I am having a bad day, I kid you not, I open up this picture and it still makes me laugh. I would encourage you to save it on your computer or bookmark this page, because if you're at all like me, it will never get old.
The video: I think it was about last week when I actually ran into this video on a different blog. Call me a copycat, but I wanted to share it just the same. Basically everybody knows that I love all things Apple, and of course people always have something to say about that. It's the old Mac of PC, Canon or Nikon, Pepsi or Coke, kind of debate. Anyway, I know the people who created this video aren't exactly playing for my team, but I love the creativity involved and I just laugh out loud with the song every time. So, again, I had to share it. :)
Oh, and for the record, it's Mac, Canon, and Pepsi! Want to debate me on this? Leave a comment! ;)
