Hells bells. As I mentioned in this post from my website, I have a new job!  Entry Level Self Promotion. yay me.

However, as you can see from my freshly vacuumed floors and the start of another zombie apocalypse blog post, I am in avoidance mode. It must be time to write Artist Statements and emails with newsletter invites. gah.

But first let me tell you about my weekend!

We went to Santa Cruz. It was cold and perfect. I didn’t do any of the work I had assigned myself, but painted and took pictures. Let me show them to you!

We drove by the beach.

And we went downtown where I saw this:

and bought these:

I really should get to my to-do list.

Erin had a good time with the Ubers:

One more just because.

Erin making faces while Grandma tries to take her picture.

And typical driving home behavior:

There are more, so many more, but I have a mat to re-cut. And then maybe some lunch! Then the to-do list. Really.

Oh yeah, scroll back up to the top of the sidebar and sign up for my newsletter!

There. Earning my pay.


OK, that’s not entirely true. What is true is that I sold the photograph I had up at this month’s Vox show!  (Man, I love saying that!)

Hopeless Romantic

Yep, that’s Chris, the reluctant model for one of the Utata Iron Photographer projects. And speaking of Utata, guess who is part of their new Code Ninja Strike Force? That’s right – me! And that is their title, not mine – these are my people! I’m told I’ll be paid in cake. That’s cool.

In other big news, in the paying gig world, I am the new Code Artist for Sweet Blog Design! I am so happy to be working with some of my favorite bloggers.

I sold a photo. I am a Code Ninja/Code Artist/geek. I think that covers it.

Life as a statistic

July 1, 2009

in job

And it comes to this… I am now officially unemployed. An innocent victim of corporate downsizing. /insert mild freak-out here/

9 ½ years at Positron and now nothing. There isn’t even an office to go back and visit. Everything was packed up and moved out yesterday afternoon, basically leaving no physical evidence of where I spent a good part of each day for the past decade. And that is surreal to say the least.

This morning I got up, got ready as usual, and took Erin to Jen’s. And then came back home. My job is now to find a job. So, who needs a website?


I should post something…

I’ve got nothing. I packed the last of my personal belongings from my desk today. But the things that are upsetting me I can’t talk about here. And in the long run, they aren’t important. So

in other news, I couldn’t get my doctor to write me a note for Taekwondo class stating that 100 jumping jacks are not good for me. Quack.


You take the good you take the bad

Last Monday I hit the ‘anger phase’ regarding my forthcoming job loss. And I’ve got to tell ya, I enjoy a low-grade petulance far more than being depressed! Nevertheless, all the ups and downs of the last two weeks are making me seasick But here is the really strange thing that I have been reluctant to […]

It’s the end of the world as we know it.

June 4, 2009

And I most certainly do NOT feel fine. I should be writing about my new Taekwondo classes. Or that Chris is out of town and I’m staying up too late each night, as is my way. Even going on about the wicked awesome lightning storm we had last night would be better than what I’ve […]
