Stuff Portrait Friday: Holy

(Boy am I gonna hear about this one.)

Kristine‘s assignment this week is HOLY. While it has been awhile since I’ve played, this week, I knew instantly what I would submit. It’s the holiest thing in our den of sin (sinful until May 25!).

I give you, Buddy Christ, from Dogma.

Stuff Portrait Friday: Buttons

Kristine has put a new spin on SPF for 2007. The assignment is to take one shot only. This week, it’s buttons. These buttons are on Matte’s vintage football video game. I thought it was an appropriate shot, in honor of this Sunday’s football game that interrupts my commercial watching Superbowl.


So, did you play?

Stuff Portrait Friday: The last one of 2006!

This week’s assignment is from Shaun. It’s the last of the year, so I thought I’d better get back to my regular SPF participation. Here’s what Shaun had us do:
1. Something that you won’t have in your home in 2007
2. Something random and odd
3. 07…..pick seven of something. Or with the number 7. Whatever. Be creative.

I will not have Brussels sprouts in my house in 2007. I think it is safe to say that any dwelling I can call “my house” has never had Brussels sprouts in it. This bag of little nasties was in my future mother-in-law’s freezer. I specifically asked her if she had any of them so I could use them for SPF.
I would not eat them, there’s no doubt.
I would not eat them to cure gout.
I do not like the Brussels sprout.
I do not like them. “Gross!” I shout.

Something random and odd is this “hand” I got in Scrabble the other day. Just what am I to do with this offering? Seriously. What words could you come up with? It is not only random and odd, it’s utterly frustrating. I think there was an open I on the board, so I spelled VIM.

Seven of something. My mom collected these seven Snowdens from Target throughout the years. I took this photo on Christmas, but I just realized there are seven Snowdens here so BONUS! these happy dudes work for my SPF submission.

So, did you play, on this, the last SPF of 2006? No? Well then, I think your New Year’s resolution needs to be something about not procrastinating. Unless you had holidays or vacations or something like that going on.

Happy New Year everyone!

Stuff Portrait Friday: Friday December 1st

It’s DECEMBER ALREADY. How did that happen? In 32 days we’ll be in 2007. There are only 24 shopping days until Christmas. Are you finished shopping? Did you start? OK. Enough of that.

It’s not yet 10 p.m. and I am about to hit the sack so I can get up at 5:15 for the last day of bootcamp (this week). But not until I post my SPF pictures. I have priorities, you know!

The assignment was this:
1. Something that makes you go “hmmm.”
2. Something sweet
3. Something retro

Hmmm…I thought about posting a photo of something that makes me go “hmmm,” but I decided to shoot something that would make you go “hmmm.” I saw the spark of light this created and had to take a photo. Do you know what this is?

Sweet! Oh yes, this was sweet. It’s my dessert from dinner tonight. I consider it research because it is from the restaurant that will cater our reception, so I had to eat it. It’s a caramel brownie s’more and it has tiny little Golden Grahams sprinkled all over the vanilla ice cream on top of the rich chocolate brownie. Chocolate and caramel sauces are strategically drizzled throughout, and a slab of scorched marshmallow is propped up next to it. I’ll have to run really fast and far tomorrow to make up for this one.
Caramel brownie s'more

This is my retro record collection. Several of these albums are also in digital form on my iPod. I don’t know why I keep these vinyl versions because I no longer have a record player, but I just can’t bear to part with them. I have other albums in my closet that are too embarrassing to photograph and post, like that one by my childhood favorites, the brother and sister duo from Utah.

Did you play? If not, you must confess in the comments my telling me your most embarrassing album/CD/cassette tape in your collection.

Stuff Portrait Friday

Kristine gave us a break again this week.

The simple assignment is:
1. YES
2. NO

Yes, I used to love Pinocchio. He was my favorite Disney character from the first time I saw the movie, and made my mom sit through it a second time. When I was little, Pinoke was even my invisible friend. So I paid homage to him on the vanity plate of my old car (a 1989 Mazda 323).

No, I have never seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show. But Matte has, and this is his old plate. The other day when Rocky Horror was on TV, Matte was doing the whole routine. And I didn’t get it. In fact, it kind of scared me a little bit.

Maybe I’ll have some ice cream when I’m done posting. But vanilla is like a blank canvas, it begs for some color and flavor. So maybe I will add some chocolate chips. And maybe some whipped cream. And maybe some warm caramel sauce. OK, and maybe fudge too.
Ice cream

Did you play this week? Yes? No? Maybe? If you did, I’ll share my ice cream with you.

TGIF, peeps!

Stuff Portrait Friday: Super damn easy

Thank you, Kristine, for making this week’s assignment so easy.

1. The Good
2. The Bad
3. The Ugly

In honor of Halloween this week, I decided to showcase some of Matte’s action figures.

The Good. Guess who? I think he’s the least evil of the collection. And the hottest, if you ask me.
The Good

The Bad. This dude is the ultimate bad guy in Diablo, according to Matte. I’m constantly learning new things from my fiance.
The Bad

The Ugly. The ugly is also bad. He’s Baan, the ultimate bad guy in Diablo II. Look at the large size version  of him on my Flickr page. Baan has blue veins and weird zits all over himself. He creeps me out.
The Ugly

Bet I out uglied ya, didn’t I? I apologize for any nightmares I may have caused. Didja play? Didja?
