"I know you can be overwhelmed, and you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?" "I think you can in Europe."

Me:  Are you ready to go?
Jesse:  Yes.
Me:  Where are your shoes?
Jesse:  Hey, you're the one knitting by the front door.  Like a crazy person.

This crazy person has been finishing a lot of projects recently, including a new pair of fingerless gloves for Jesse.

Oh, and peoples be asking me 'cuz they curious about my bike fund affairs and, no.  No one has wanted those dishes that I put up on Craigslist.  This is definitely the longest I have ever put something on Craiglist without giving up.  Usually after the first day I've lost all hope and change the listing to free so it gets out of our house.  I once put up a dress for $30 and two days later I made it $5.  Patience is my something or other.

And here?  Is my prom picture with my friend Alex and my feet.  I mentioned it in this post.

I was wearing these strappy shoes that made me taller than Alex, so I asked him if he wanted me to take them off for the photo.  He said he didn't care.  And I, for some reason unknown to me, thought my feet wouldn't show up in the picture anyway.

I think I've built up the whole foot thing, because it really wasn't a big deal, but who, really, who is barefoot in a prom picture?  Here's a quote from Susan about the whole foot thing.  "Your feet don't look funny, they look ugly. Which is much worse. And it's weird because you normally have nice looking feet."



That 6y was brought to you by your favorite online fluffball, Cinnamon.  Here is an old photo of him when he was just a wee boy.  And when I was just a wee girl and my photography skills were bangin'.

No, I'm serious, I actually won a camera because of a picture I took in first grade.  There were two categories to win from, one of which I don't remember and then one that was like "pensive".  I had no idea what that meant, so I submitted a picture I took at the beach.  I didn't win the pensive category, but wouldn't that have been a much more interesting story?

Here's a pensive one for you.

Shoot.  I guess I was going for thoughtful.
