Wash, rinse, repeat

Hey guess what! It’s almost next month and you know what that means right? A new VOXSac – Second Saturdy show! And yes, that is my name you see snuggled in there with the rest of the particating artists. Which means I need to get on it. Pictures to print, mats to cut… busy busy busy I know, I know, this site has become a bit Vox-centric of late (maybe December will find no one in this household participating in that month’s show, but I hope not!). And I truely had high expectations that my next post would involve some actual writing, but – I’ve got nothing right now. And then Jill sent the flyer and well… here we are. But have no fear! Soon we’ll be getting back to quality posts just like this one – old and bitter – an instant classic no?

Boy wonder

Vox Sacramento’s Children’s Art Show opened last Saturday night and I managed to get a few pics of Kyle and his photographs up on Flickr. I like this one – I think it really captures his enthusiasm for the whole affair. In other Kyle news – he made the school basketball team!  Practices 6 days a week starting…  now.

Keeping it in the family

Tonight I have to drive down to Vox Sac and pick up my photographs. Yes, my month of fame and wished-for-fortune is over. However, I have another task to attend to at Vox tonight and I’m not going down there alone. Kyle and I will be hanging his photographs for the Oct Children’s Art Show! That’s right, Kyle’s photography will be on exhibit at this month’s Second Saturday! How cool is that?! My baby’s first show! I’ve printed and mounted 6 of his pics – 4 of them are amazing car photos that I would be proud to claim as my own! That boy has got talent if I do say so myself. So come on out Saturday night and support Kyle and the other young artists. See you there!

Virtual Vox Sac show

Wow, the show this weekend was fantastic! Not only were all the photos amazing – it was great to meet and chat with the other photographers. And I would really like to thank the ubers who came up for the weekend, Rachel and Phil Valley and Cayle and Holly Little for all making it to the Artist Reception on Friday evening. For those of you who couldn’t make it – here are the images I have up. Get the flash player here: http://www.adobe.com/flashplayer I did manage to take a few photos on Friday evening and will try to get them posted soon. But first? another Barbie video. joy.

Pretty vacant

No need to be so smug about it As you know, I’ve been working on the HS Tourney website for the last couple months. Well, last week I had finally gotten it to a state of ‘almost done’. The Add and Search functions were working. The forums were almost there. It was getting close. And Chris was getting antsy. By Thursday he was really pushing me to get the site up. Telling me not to worry about it being perfect. Ha! easy for him to say! So, when I should have been packing on Friday, I was moving the site from my local server to the hosting server. And the site is now (a)live and kicking! Check it out – www.hstourney.com  There are still a few things to tweak and pictures to add, but Bob is happy and coaches across the land have begun to add tournaments. And Chris was of course right – getting it pushed up before the long weekend allowed me to relax and enjoy the weekend. Damn it. Only dead fish go with the flow That was painted on a sidewalk on the University of Michigan campus when I attended x number of years ago. Well…

Mommy’s dipping in the drupal again…

I know, I’ve gone quiet again. Sorry. And I hate to keep repeating myself, but I’ve been busy. Brain-busy. But don’t worry. My next programming class starts next week, and I’m sure I’ll have plenty to complain talk about then. In the meantime, some updates: Things I learned this morning – I need to have more phone conversations during the week. If not, one poor innocent caller will get all my pent-up ramblings thrown at her all at once. Especially if it is early in the morning and I’m over-caffeinated. So, for the greater good, you should call me. Often. And don’t forget to remind me to eat lunch. Vox show is in 2 weeks and I’ve just finished cutting the mat boards so I can start framing the prints. Very exciting. I’m sure all you out-of-towners have already purchased your plane tickets to get the 2 wk advance discounts. You’re so smart. Kyle started school last Thursday. I just found out he has already got his first detention! What am I going to do with that kid?! And while Chris was talking to the math teacher, I was on the phone with the band teacher. Oh I definitely got…
