Upside-down was HARD!

I went out at lunch and tried to get everything, then after dinner Michael and I went downtown to see if I could find upside-down and teenagers. I ended up finding everything again. (All pictures were taken with Canon PowerShot SD1300)

Adventures in Babysitting

If you follow me on Twitter, you’re probably aware that I spent the last 24 hours with a visiting friend while her baby brother was being born.

These are some of the adventures we had.

Thursday Photo Scavenger Hunt: Results

This list wasn’t horrible, except for the clashing clothing. I think 90% of the people I saw today were wearing scrubs, and I didn’t see a single stupid chick wearing short shorts and Ugs.

Thursday Photo Scavenger Hunt

Nathan graciously submitted the terms for this week.

As I’m pre-posting this, I’m going to try really hard to copy and paste without looking so I don’t get too much of a head start.

Of course, this means it’ll pour down rain Thursday…

Random Question: REM

Was just sitting here wondering, what is your favorite REM song?

If you hate REM, no need to tell me so, though you can ask me to ask about another artist or group.

And Now, A Few Words on the Recent Lack of Words…

Scott Lynch posted a wonderful essay on depression. Go read it.

Really, did you read it? No? Go! It’ll even open in a new tab, so you don’t have to be bothered with that meddlesome “Back” button.

First, I’m always glad when someone else writes about depression. The more people who are open about their mental health problems, the less we have to feel like freaks and failures.

Second, you’ve possibly noted that I’ve been rather quiet recently. A lot has happened in the past year or so, and it’s been gnawing at my mind and taking my energy and using it for things like, Bejeweled and Solitaire rather than anything useful.

Which leads me to the question I’ve been dealing with, which is, is this grief or depression?

The answer is, I honestly don’t know, but I think I’m going to give it some time before I decide one way or another. But in the meantime, I probably will continue to be scarce around here. I’ll try to keep up with the Wednesday Word Association and the Thursday Photo Scavenger Hunt, because I like people to stop by and say hi.

But as for anything else? I’m thinking maybe I’ll take a bit of a break for the summer. So if I’m not around much–sorry. But please stick around for Wednesday Word Association!
