Thursday Brings the Memes

I really wish this wasn't so blurry, but it totally depicts the exact moment I took it. My kids had never been to a carnival, and they were so excited to be there with my husband. He is self employed and sometimes it is hard for him to do things like the park, zoo, library, farm with us. So whenever he can do something with us we are all ecstatic. We had meet some friends and I was walking behind talking to my girlfriend, screaming over the noise of the carnival, watching my kids get caught up in the excitement when I noticed them all holding hands. I touched my friends arm and gestured to them. She said, "cute" and I snapped the picture. It was all so noisy and busy all around us but that moment just paused for me.

These shots are all from the local Carnival that came through town two weeks ago. I shot so many pictures that weekend and they look good in color, b&w and sepia.
I love them in Sepia because, while I am 42 and we did have color in our photos when I was a child, the sepia is like my clouded memories of those times.

1. What is your least favorite candy bar? Charleston Chew. My best friend isn't a dentist!

2. If I were to call you, what would you say? "Hey, sup! How the hell are ya".

3. What is your favorite type of leaf? One that makes my table bigger. There is never enough room for all my paperwork.

4. When was the last time you....
- had sex? Well, I never! Duh, last night.
- swam in a lake? Last summer, the end of the season.
- went barefoot outside? I go barefoot all the time. Love barefootin'

ate peas? I hate peas!

5. Since Father's Day is right around the corner, tell us about the person that you are celebrating. I celebrate my man. He is our hero and the one we can't wait to see at the end of the day.

6. Were you dropped on your head as a child? I don't know but, that may explain everything.

7. How often do you clean your toilet? Every single day. There are two males in the
house. If it were just me and my daughter, it would only be done once a week.

8. Have you ever been sunburned? Tell us about it. I have been but it has been years. I started working for a dermatologist when I was 27 or so. There hasn't been a burn since then.

9. On average, how many hours a sleep do you get a night? I'll sleep when I'm dead. I haven't slept more than 4-5 straight hours in over 6 years. It is always broken sleep for one kid or another.

10 How many hours did you get last night? 2 hours, then 3 hours, then 45 minutes.

11. Take a picture of something. Post it.

Here is evidence of a good day. My laptop, a beer, a flower, a bug candle, and my pretty pink blackberry! Nice!
12. Are the bottom of your feet dirty? No. They are just hard and in need of a really good pedicure.

13. Do you know the names of every member of the family who lives next door to you? Only on one side of me. The people on the other side are on the other side of an overgrown empty lot.
