New 365 on Posterous

So many blogsites, so little organization... Though I failed at previous attempts, I begin again - definitely committed to 52 weeks of photos; sometimes every day, sometimes many a day... leaving it a bit more open. Perhaps now that I'm busier, I'll actually do it! Feel free to follow:

Can you HANDLE the cuteness? Again, taken with the iPhone in very dark lighting, so don't click to enlarge, as it's rather grainy.
A friend of a friend, fostering a new mama and her babies... OMG is right. 5 of them. 3 orange/white, 2 grey. TO. DIE. FOR.

My first attempt at bread pudding. SUCCESS! So gorgeous coming out of the oven I had to take a picture. And it tasted just as good as it looked!

Got a nice sunburn watching the Final - on the sidewalk, the place was so crowded (more with Spanish fans than Dutch). I had Dutch flags on my cheeks, and was rooting best I could, but... Spain won. Ah, well. Good match.

Rooting for Uruguay in the 3/4 Place Final - I got mom and dad into it!Apologies for the blur; I thought I'd get more pics, as well as video of mom cheering (and getting upset), but I myself was too involved in the match!

Finally made it to a show at the Long Beach Arts Theatre, a restored landmark.
A lovely place, though I wouldn't see a big blockbuster there. But I did enjoy seeing Joan Rivers' pic. She's inspiring, but I certainly don't envy her!(taken in very dim lighting with my cell; hence the poor quality!)

Made a new friend today. Just a big love. Wish I could take him home.

Grease... is the WORD!

Went to the premiere of the Grease singalong at the Hollywood Bowl with the Tall Girls. FUN FUN FUN. We go to the Sound of Music singalong in September, which is also really fun, but... Grease. Is. My. Movie.
I didn't want to go crazy with costuming, but at least wanted to do something fun; and happily realizing I already owned a pink cardigan, decided to go with dressing up the top half of me, while wearing jeans and trainers (it is the Hollywood Bowl, after all, and I was not going to let painful feet ruin my night). So I thought I'd do my hair up in pin curls, grab some red lipstick and some bubble gum...

What have we learned:
Pin curls are not something to lightly think you can do at noon the day of.
Started out pretty well...
...and then my patience ran out and I reverted to the curling iron.Pretty good, eh? Though I suppose the makeup's a bit heavy, borderlining on drag-queen, so I'll lighten up a bit on that next year (in person it didn't quite look THAT heavy).

304/365 - photo challenge

The theme was 'toys' - but alas, I have none. *sniff* Just so happens my parents cleaned out part of the attic and gave me a box of fairly worthless plastic bits and pieces of what was once some type of dollhouse, of which I have no recollection. Ah well; put this guy to some use before tossing.

Though I did think this one was cuter:
... part of the challenge was creating some sort of ambience, or story. "Horse zombie coming out of Ground" just didn't work right.

Time to say goodbye to the most awesomest girls I've ever taught.
