Well, in spite of recent bad news, I had a great birthday yesterday. I think it helped me get in a better mood when Ethan sent me an e-mail that said he was having a hard time with this extension too. Not that I want him to be depressed, but it made me feel less alone. And I know that we can get through this together.
On to birthday business: first of all, thanks to Henna and Puppie and Vanessa who sent me various forms of cards. I really do appreciate that, especially since I am well-meaning and always say I'll send out cards for others, but never do. In other words, I know it takes time and effort and I appreciate that you guys care.
So yesterday, I woke up and talked to my family and Ethan. Then I went out for a nice lunch with a work friend, and then I headed down to Girdwood to practice my photography. It was a beautiful sunny day and wandering around in the fall environment was really nice. Then I came back to town, got my free ice cream from Cold Stone, and went to class. After class I went to the Moose's Tooth for great pizza and beer with a bunch of my friends. Nothing super exciting, but let's face it, I'm getting a little old for super exciting. After all, I'm 29 now. I wouldn't want to give myself a heart attack or anything.
Here are some pictures from yesterday:
Now, a couple of questions for you photographer types: 1) how do you upload full size pictures? If I try to do that, blogger freezes. That Up in Alaska girl uploads photos that you can click on to see the big version. Does it just take her a really long time? 2) What online photo album is most popular? e.g. Shutterfly, Kodak, etc. I would like to upload some more pictures for you all to see, but I don't want to cram them all into my blog (although, as promised, you're still going to get some State Fair pics!)
