self portrait tuesday - #4


me and garb Originally uploaded by dressform.

for those of you who don't know my garbo... she loves to sit in your lap (even though she's all muscle and 65/70 pounds....) she's a snuggler.... which is part of why i love her! (does this count for take your pet to blog day too?)

have you ever played word dodge-ball? man those vowels and consonants can come flying toward you in missile formation. i'm not a big proponent of the game myself, but am some-how caught in the middle of match. it is too exhausting for me right now so i think i am bowing out. thank god i have people who won't think i'm a sissy for doing so... and a few that have called FOUL when some stinky shitty mess has been lobbed at me instead of a ball.... playing games is not always nice! i'll try and be philosophical and say that it is better to have played and capitulated to save your sanity than never to have played at all. (wow. ranting can sometimes feel good)

so to keep from ending on a bad note.... i'm updating the links over there on your left! so many new new and great finds (thank you bloglines for making it possible for me to keep up with all of them!) it has been great meeting and reading about ya'll....

Snuggling with a friend like Garbo is much preferred over playing "games" with people who get nasty about it. When people do the latter, they are violating the spirit of play. Too bad that they don't realize that this ruins it for others.

I love the angle on the photo.
What is word dodge-ball?

(my fingers were typing different words than I was thinking - I typed angel instead of angle which kind of works. then I typed dog - ball which also kind of works.)

Great photo Lisa, super fantastico!
I wish I had a snuggly creature to love, I just have a menagerie of animals living in my yard: deer, rabbit, hedgehog, squirrel, chipmonk, red tail squirel, and many birds and bugs! HELP

fanatstic angle for your SPT shot here... love it.

yeah, I get caught up in the occasional verbal dodge ball and it just sucks, just drains the life right out of me. sorry you're in the midst of it.

thank you so much for linking me! I'm totally honored and can't wait to list you as well. my update is coming soon (got some issues of my own going on here as well)...
