Friday Randomness : Einstein + Email Addresses

esterday I set out to carpe the heck out of my diem. No, really, I was determined not to become overwhelmed with everything, including a two hour drive to an engagement session. I made a new play list, packed snacks, and slipped into a comfy pair of shoes for what the day held after sitting at my desk all morning. On my way home after the shoot, the commute was a solid red 4-hour line on my iphone that led from Ventura to Orange County.

My carpe-ing? It was making me work.

Not to be deterred, I pulled off the freeway and got a manicure. I'm pretty sure I'm annoying as I sound, but it was either that or be seen on the nightly news. LATINA PULLS OFF HER EARRINGS AND GOES CRAZY ON THE 405 FREEWAY.

In more random things about life, here are a few gems I came across the Internet this week...

I'm not really the baking type, but these camera cookie cutters are too cute to pass by. If you make them, I'll eat them!

I'm not brave enough to share my first AOL email address...

Happy Friday!

Wedding Photographer Colchester - Anarchy in the UK so simple so effective. I love it.  02.25.12 - 11:04am
shani - LA traffic...gotta love it.... I've stopped at IKEA on the way back fromOC to LA.... I ended up redoing the whole kids playroom over... would have been cheaper to just get a manicure....  02.21.12 - 8:27am
Erin - I love them as always. Buying the cookie stuff right now! And I don't even bake. :) I have to now. I love the awkward moment when you have to give someone that email address. My husband had an email that was He named it that because there was a big shiny thing on the floor when he was trying to set up his email. It was cool through college though he didn't really know why or care to ask. But one day a few years back he was putting a resume together for a job, I asked him, "Are you really going to put that on your resume?!" with a little sarcasm. He said, "yeah." I told him to re-think it. All of a sudden a look came across his face and he broke out in to loud laughter. What once was innocent was not longer. He changed it right then.   02.20.12 - 3:41pm
Nicole - Try having to give out the e,ail address your MOM made FOR you when you were 11 "based" on your interests. Embarrassing doesn't even begin to describe it.   02.20.12 - 9:30am

sara priddy rogness - I am taking the Texas bar in 11 days & I can't stop reading your magazine (it arrived this afternoon). Photography is what got me through those 2 years (I rushed it) & (I know this is weird. I know) but I feel like I have to take & pass the bar before I can legitimately pursue photography whole-heartedly. A finishing what I began thing. Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for writing the 'zine--it's just the inspiration I need after the last two grueling months (dream food) of study. I'm bummed that there's no Fix for me because I'll be busy trying to remember what amendment gives what right to whom, but I'm pretending you're going to pick my yet-to-be-taped video for the creative live course. Yep-pretending. Mostly, though, Gracias! Now, back to page 53 in the mag or back to taking notes on consumer rights?   02.17.12 - 6:04pm
