Trigger happy face


In other news, I have decided to apply for at least one job in every single state.

Red in the Face

Tomato Face
This new grocery store down the street was hosting a photo contest that was all about tomatoes. The winner received a $500 gift card, which means I probably should have tried a lot harder to win. I had so many complicated and involved ideas, but I waited until the very last day of the contest to take a photo. I don't consider myself an artist-artist, but I did carve this mouth into the tomato, and I think it looks pretty good. I don't generally put up photos of staged faces on this blog, but what the hell. I also don't normally carve faces into my food.

Odd man out(let)

Notice how this looks crooked? I was not holding my camera at an angle. It's the outlet cover that's not straight. Or it could be the wall? The guy in the middle has nothing to say about it, but the two dudes beside him are very very shocked.

bag of many faces

Here are some pictures of a new suitcase/travel bag that I dug out of a friend's basement:

On this side of the bag, there was only one eye.

 Two eyes. That's a little more normal. There's still that beautiful shine.

 Look how happy this one is! That's my cat in the background. His name changes all the time. It started out as Johnny Angel, then switched to Overtime, then Bravo, then Cuba, then Tab. There have been others, but I don't remember them.

Lately, I have been using the camera on my phone because it means that I don't have to use my camera cord every time I want to transfer my pictures. I can be extremely lazy. My phone has a decent camera, but it still couldn't take all the pictures I wanted of this bag. I will eventually use my real camera again. In the meantime, here's a picture of the rest of the cat:

your face is a stain.

This is definitely not the most pleasing image. I forgot to clean the kitchen counter the other morning, and this spill was either from tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, or maybe I cut myself? No, I'm sure it was either the spaghetti sauce or the tomatoes. This is why you should clean any spills as soon as they happen.

House with a hat


This house is across the street from me. I was trying to tell a friend where I lived, so I described this house to him and he kept asking if it was the one with the turrets. It is, indeed; but every time he said "turrets" it sounded like he was saying "turds," so I had no idea what he was talking about. It took some time, but we were able to straighten it out.

I don't want to live in a house unless it has a face. However, when it comes time to actually buy a house, I hope to have gained some practical reasoning skills.
