jeez, i don't know about you but i think i may need one of those sun lamps from sharper image. man! this winter is intense! woooh. i went out tonight, and was like, wow there's a whole world out here that i almost forgot about! it's so easy to hunker down, batten down the hatches and just hibernate the shit out of this place. luckily, we have the world wide intra webs to keep us keepin' on. take for instance this fine pin by richard barlow from red cake gallery, save your own soul. it kind of has new england smack dab in the dead of winter written all over it. am i right? add to cart, pretty please.

I drank my glucose drink a little late. I was pretty scared.. but decided to fill up a glass all the way with crushed ice, pour it in and drink it was a straw really quickly. Surprisingly.. It wasn’t bad at all! It tastes EXACTLY like fruit punch. There wasn’t anything too weird about it. (Except the after taste) By the time we got to the doctors office (an hour later) I was pretty shaky… and felt very wired! My blood was drawn.. and I survived… (and Aaron didn’t pass out!! Yippee for him!) I begged the lady taking my weight to just write.. House or Boat or Wale and let me skip that part, but she wouldn’t. (I didn’t look!) The pee test.. that didn’t go so well. There was apparently a lot of glucose. Which I assumed would be normal. Apparently it’s not. The doctor thinks I’ll have to take the 3 hour test.. :( Soooooooooo not looking forward to that.
We’ll find out on Monday.
She did suggest that maybe I lay off the cheeseburgers a little!!! :) Usually at my monthly appointments I gain about 2-4 pounds since the last appointment. I gained 10 this time. But I knew that! I weigh myself every week! The week after my last appointment I gained 2 pounds.. the week after that was my horrible 8 lbs week!! Then the past two weeks I haven’t even gained an ounce. So far I have gained a total of 19 pounds. BUT ..if you look at it the other way.. I only gained 9 pounds in the first 24 weeks and 10 pounds in the last 4 weeks!! I think that is where her concern is! I really don’t think that’s too bad. I was aiming for no more than 30.. Don’t think I’ll actually get to that goal… but we’ll see.
I took the dog for a walk last night.. and it was really nice. Maybe I’ll keep doing that (We both slept like babies!!)
Anyway.. I was STARVING after our appointment. We were just going to grab something fast foody to take to work but I told Aaron we should go somewhere and sit down. So we went to Village Inn. It was really good… and a nice way to start his Birthday Day!
Oh…and since we have freshly charged batteries I decided to update with a tummy picture. (I also happen to be wearing the same black shirt I normally do when I take pictures.) I thought.. might as well update with a 28 week picture since I’ll be 28 weeks tomorrow..
GUESS WHAT?? I’ll be 29 weeks tomorrow!!! Holy cow.. where do the weeks go???
So this is officially 7.25 months along….
(please remind me to crop my head out of these pictures from now on!!)
Just for reference.. this was 26 weeks… so 3 weeks ago.. There is actually some change this time!! :)
Oh ..and she told me we get one more ultrasound at 36 weeks!!! She wants to check the placenta one more time and check the size of the baby.. So right around Thanksgiving we get one more look before we meet him! (I’m still really hoping $100 will fall out of the sky because I’d really love to go do the 3D ultrasound sometime…)
Umm… I think that is all that has happened so far.. oh.. and I got the A-O-K to fly to Dallas for the business trip! Good thing since we already bought Aaron’s ticket!
So this pictures really doesn’t have anything to do with anything.. But I found it the other day..and just think it’s cute! This Riddick (the much much more shaggy version) probably about … 3 (?) years ago.. He came to work one Saturday with me.. (Don’t tell my boss!) That was my desk at the time (we’re in a different building now..) And I love how he’s looking at me..and how there is a picture of him taped to the monitor and how he’s the backdrop on the monitor!
Again.. has absolutely nothing to do with anything.. just cute! :)

i've got the flu...so i bring you less words more art. alan ludwig enjoys getting lost and feeling good, and i can't say i blame him. i was recently in touch w/ alan and he explained his work to me like this: "it's an exploration into a fictitious wilderness, its aboutorganization, destinations, growth, and in this setting develops thenarratives. which mostly don't follow the linear tradition ofstorytelling."

La firme californienne lèvera le voile sur Android 4.0 en direct sur YouTube. Ice Cream Sandwich devrait être présenté le 11 octobre comme prévu.
C’est via la chaîne YouTube consacrée au développement d’Android que l’on a eu la confirmation de la date de lancement de la version Ice Cream Sandwich du système d’exploitation mobile Android de Google. Un compte à rebours était affiché (il a depuis été retiré…mais Cnet.com en gardé une trace), et il prouvait que la diffusion de la présentation était prévue pour dans quatre jours.
Quatre jours, c’est-à-dire le 11 octobre, date de la conférence de Samsung pour dévoiler le Nexus Prime. La boucle est bouclée.
Capture : mobilissimo
Côté Google, on n’a pas souhaité s’exprimer sur le sujet, mais il ne fait donc plus aucun doute que Android 4.0 sera présenté la semaine prochaine. On rappelle qu’il s’agit du remplaçant d’Honeycomb et de Gingerbread. En clair, il fonctionnera à la fois sur les smartphones et les tablettes. (EP)

Susie Wright just updated her website and added a new shop where you can buy her prints, artwork and publications Yes! I'm digging her South African birds made entirely of weapons. And the lone pidgeon. Pidgeon's are the new owl, the new black. You heard it here first. I threw in the chicken to even it all out. Who doesn't love a fat hen?

one of the major reasons i love art (and why i write this blog) is for the very fact that art moves me. whether it is amazingly beautiful or god awful or just plain disturbing. art almost always elicits some sort of a response w/in my visceral, emotional being and if it's done a really good job, my cerebral, thinking side as well. it gets me talking, thinking, wanting to discuss w/ those around me. pinar yolacan's exhibit maria has done that to me recently.
maria, is a group of 22 photographs of afro-brazilian women dressed in clothing made by pinar and inspired by local architecture. however, not all the fabric is man made, each woman is outfitted somehow in animal flesh, placenta to be exact and it blends in almost perfectly w/ the effervescent velvet. the photos are equally stunning as they are disturbing.
i've become really enthralled w/ this exhibit. many things come up for me as i look at the photographs online, subjects such as race, class, beauty and fashion are amongst some. the women themselves are from itaparica, bahia, an island off of brazil, not far from one of thebiggest slave ports in the world. you can read the press release here to read in pinar's own words her inspirations. her ideas behind it are all very interesting. i'd love to hear what others think on this exhibit.
rivington arms has extendedthe show through january 10th. i hope to get down to nyc to see it. iam really interested in experiencing the photographs in person. theyare quite large and i imagine really demand one's attention.

i mentioned a little while back that i was asked to interview hannah stouffer for the twenty 2wo blog pdf magazine. well! it's been launched and you guys can check it out and download it here. i'm really pleased w/ how well the magazine came out, adam did an amazing job. i'm really honored that he asked me to be a part of it! hannah sent me some goodies (two rad totes and little bits!) so to get you all excited about the twenty 2wo magazine and the interview, i'm going to give them away to the two lucky commenters. you know the drill, leave a comment and i'll pick the winner on wednesday! yay! hurry before i decide to keep one for myself, i LOVE the 18k jungle tote bag but the featherweight tote is just as sweet!
