Pop Art, by an 8-year old

For a Christmas gift, Miranda’s teacher had the class working on art projects to compile into a calendar for 2009. Of her pieces, my favourite is the pop art picture she made of herself.


She was give black & white pictures of herself, which she cut out and pasted onto the coloured rectangles already pasted on black paper. Then she coloured the photos.

Redneck Wrap Job

Who needs tape when you have zip ties?

Although, (FAIL) a true redneck would have used newspaper instead of gift wrap.


He was smart and left them loose enough that I could slide them off without having to cut the ties. It’s wrapped, I couldn’t care what was is in it, I already love it.

My Latest Obsession

On Sunday, the BF put a jailbreak on my iPhone and since then I have been obsessing over building my own custom theme.  Here are some screen shots. 

The home screen background transitions between two images.

I have been lazy and instead of creating my own icons, I have pieced together a few different sets.

Other mods:

custom SMS screen & keyboard:

I have done more, but this is highlighting the majority of the changes.

Dance Dance

Hotel room scene, getting ready for the Christmas party, Angel in one room, BF in the other.

BF: Woman, are these new shoes?!

(obviously he saw my new shoes on the bathroom floor)

Me: (in a slightly higher than usual pitched voice) Maybe...

BF: I thought I forbid you to buy these shoes!?

Me: (confidently) Nope! You just told me you thought they were ugly!
shoeBF:  I must have dreamt it.

Honestly, he didn't forbid me to buy them; he simply had commented that they were ugly.

I told everyone I was going to get these shoes, even if it killed me... see HERE.
Everyone else loved them!  I was in the elevator and a cute guy told me they were great shoes!  Then I get off the elevator and I could hear 2 women getting on the elevator and saying wow those are cool shoes!!
Me dancing in my shoes.
