I found my shrimp yesterday snacking on this *disgusting* bristle worm. UHG!! These worms are normal in a salt tank and even beneficial but they gross me right out. I hate how FUZZY and iridescent it is. There's one in my tank that is at least 16 or 18 inches long, and I wasn't even seeing the whole thing. *GAG* luckily it hangs out in the sand most of the time (unless something dies and it comes out to help dispose of the body) so I don't have to see it but I'm not looking forward to the possibility of unearthing it when we take the tank apart when we move. >.<

I took this awhile ago when Jake upgraded to his 2 wheeler (with training wheels, of course). I thought I posted this but I guess I didn't. So here it is. Also, I downloaded a trial copy of Adobe Lightroom for processing. Up until now I've just been using iphoto which really only has a couple things you can adjust. It's pretty awesome. I can't wait to try it with RAW files next, instead of JPEGs.

I had a request for more kid pictures. So, here's one.

Kyocera ceramic knife

Kyocera ceramic knife


I got this knife for xmas (thanks Phil!) and I've been wanting to take a pic of it, but it just didn't seem to do it justice to pose it with some innocuous veggies, so I was waiting to get a big slab of red meat. Because although this knife may look rather unassuming, I have grown to respect it. The blade is ceramic instead of metal and in certain lights it is even translucent, which is what I was trying to show here, with this lighting. I realize now that it could almost look like a reflection in the blade, but it's not. You can actually see through it.

Pickles of the Month.

Pickle of the Month Club
For my birthday, Kelly made me a 'Pickle of the Month Club'. 12 jars of various kinds of pickles, individually wrapped so I have to wait till each jar's month to open them up.

These are January's (tomatoes) and February's (beets) pickles.

I've been wanting a pair of white Docs for a few years now, and apparently I finally hinted enough and Pooky got me a pair for my birthday!

Pooky: those are fantastic
me: fantastic as in, super awesome or as in like, ridiculous and mythical.... like unicorns....
Pooky: uhm.... like unicorns.


lol, well... I like them! Unfortunately, they're too big so we have to exchange them. Oh well, I guess I'll have to wait a few more days.
