From my point of view

i bet you're wondering what all the pictures of my feet are for? i just think it's interesting to capture what im looking know from my point of view. and im loving me some china glaze flip flop party pink nail polish, BESTCOLOUREVER. my BB camera really doesnt do it justice.

that picture is from a recent concert i went to...i'll give you a few hints:

Im a LITTLE BITTY fan, and WHERE I COME FROM everyone has the best time on the CHATAHOOCHEE and he sings it best because he's my favourite ALL AMERICAN COUNTRY BOY. then we got ALL JACKED UP and i was more than happy to be surrounded by favourite REDNECK WOMAN and HOMEWRECKERS. i was very excited to hear them say WE'RE COMING TO YOUR CITY, they always give the best advice like SAVE A HORSE, RIDE A COWBOY and they know better than anyone else that us HILLBILLIES LIKE IT BEST IN THE HAY.

arent you glad i tortured you with reference to 3 country greats? any guesses?

Photo Session Sneak Peak

I might be in love with the cross process finish. i cant get enough. i have another session lined up this week, fingers crossed that it does not rain. although i am thankful for the rain today because it has cooled down my apartment significantly. back to bed for me, poudning headache...thank you pressure from the rainy business mother nature has blessed us with.

The pool house has a new resident

Meet Ralphie the raccoon. our resident poolhouse critter. last week i was doing my poolside duties and getting a tube to float in and when i walked in the door i saw a ball of fur and it turned out to be ralphie. after much debate and "omg dont bring out your effing 22" screaming at the lawn/pool guy i decided to call in reinforcements. we'll call him C and he is the source of all heartache in my life and yes is still around....even though the other woman is still around. hey i never said it wasn't complicated. so i call C and say, well scream:


and then silence and then eruption of laughter. i tell the man he is no funny and he needs to come get the raccoon out because other wise paul (pool and lawn guy) will bring out his 22 and then i`ll cry and no one is going to win. so C comes over, puts on the thickest gloves i have ever seen, the man farms and has weird shit k, anywho he goes in reaches down to the raccoon and the poor thing starts crying. so of course i yell: STOPYOUAREGOINGTOSCARETHESHITRIGHTOUTOFHIM!, i mean honestly raccoon shit is the last thing i needed on a sunny monday morning. sooo then we stood there, me frantic, C annoyed and ralphie almost shitting himself. clearly a big burly man going in to get him wasnt going to work. and then i started contemplating if we could even just pick him up and once we did wtf were we going to do with him. so i sent C on a wild goose chase, or rather raccoon chase. i made him check the trees on the side of the property for a mama raccoon because in previous years there have been babies in certain trees and where there are babies there is a mama. and low and behold C found a raccoon family. now we just had to figure out how to get ralphie from point A to point B. C pointed out that ralphie was calm when i was near him and by near i mean 2 feet away and that maybe i should try picking him up. to which i yelled: ARYOUEFFINGCRAZYNOWIWILLSHITMYSELF! to which C responded no you wont babe and then put the thickest gloves of life on my hands. and so in i went with C close behind with the pool skimmer as a weapon just in case. to my shock and surprise ralphie let me pick him up and we walked all the way to the property sideline and i placed him at the bottom of the tree where he shit himself of course and then just sat there. C and i stood back and 20 minutes later the mama raccoon came out of the tree and got ralphie. it was cute.

i survived, ralphie survived and for those wondering C`s eardrums are intact. and might i add that ralphie was damn cute. all i have are the above pics taken with my BB. he`s adorable!

welcome to the view outside my apartment door. please try not to pay attention to the nasty ugly rugs or the colourful "art" on the left hand side of the picture. people, let's focus on the exposed brick wall, potential to be amazing floors, school pendent lighting and although you can't see it the 24 foot cream tin ceilings :)
i kind of want to take the brick wall and move it inside my apartment. im an inner unit therefore no exposed brick wall for me....but im kind of wondering what might be behind the sheetrock of my window wall...hmmmm

right, so now the ugly. wtf is this poeple? wtf!!!!!!!! my new neighbours have decided this piece of "art" works best right outside their apartment door, which if you didnt notice is marked with painter's tape for the number...TACKY. oh and those nasty floral green rugs TACKY!!!!

as you can see from the picture below this piece of "art" is higher than the door. i actually measured it after a series of rude emails from my superintendents, i used the measurement when i spoke to my joke of a landlord. it's 10 effing feet tall!!!!!! again, WTF. WTF and wait for it WTF.

if someone could explain to me why they need to keep this peice of shit, sorry art, right outside my front door with their 16731357654 nasty rugs then i will stop complaining.

i am forcing the landlord to come take a look. i told him i didnt move here so i could live beside a storage unit. and then i must have asked him 15 times who was going to vacuum those rugs that are literally 4 feet away from my door. im pretty sure he's had it with me as i bitched at him last month when my fridge broke. twice. in one week. and i had to throw out $250 worth of groceries. i basically want to light a small fire under this man's ass. and if you recall my fridge broke last july and i had to throw out groceries then too.

off i go to the library, to look at pretty rows of books instead of creepy, oversized "art". seriously people, seriously?!

effing neighbours.

What? The pool deserves some TLC too

honestly i dont disappear on purpose. and whoever keeps anonymously msging me as to why im not posting you need to make yourself known, become a follower at least! otherwise im just going to think you're some crazy stalker, kthxbai.

soooooo really all ive been up to is this:

well that's a lie, ive also been busy doing this:

(not bad for pics taken w my BB camera)

no for cereal ive been up to my eyeballs in course work. the life of a teacher: taking courses over summer break. i also, like a crazy lady, decided to take on a part time nanny and im pretty sure the little girl needs therapy. im dead serious. that's a whole other post though.
for now i will continue to do my course work pool side, my tan is ridiculous and im loving it. tomorrow im hanging with my sammy bam and im sure we'll be in the pool, it's supposed to be sunny AND hot AGAIN!!!!
congratulations ontario, you finally got summer right for once :)
