So, I was attempting to sort through the 50 million pictures on my computer that needs sorting when I realized, hey! I haven't blogged about this yet! Or this! Or this?! Whoa. I've really neglected my blog. I'm sorry, blog. I'd promise to do better, but I'm not sure that I will, so I'm not going to make that promise.
Instead I'll just try to catch you up to speed. With a lot of pictures. A LOT of pictures. This should be exciting! Especially considering the following: I have a folder in my Pictures folder titled "To Organize." Within that folder are 26 sub-folders. There are 2.49 MB of files in total. I don't even know how many pictures that is, but, to me, that is a lot of MB. This is a daunting task that will probably take a few days (weeks, maybe months... hopefully not years) to sort out. And possibly several blog posts (we'll have to see about that).
Case in point, here is a beautiful picture of the leaves changing colors up in the mountains that I took last year in September from my car on the way back up to Provo after spending a weekend at home. Considering the fact that I was driving on the freeway at the same time I was taking a picture, I think it looks pretty darn good. Also, apparently it was stormy.
As you may remember, once upon a time Lola broke down in the middle of nowhere California and we were stranded on the freeway for nearly 3 hours. When I got to the hotel, I immediately wanted to shower because I was hot and gross. The soap made me laugh:
In case you can't read the soap wrapper clearly, it says "Thanks for trusting HGI with your Big Day!" (HGI= Hilton Garden Inn) (Also, I highly recommend staying there if you are ever, for some unfortunate reason, in Victorville, CA, as they were very friendly, even if breakfast wasn't free.)
And then there was this other fun time where my sister and I went to San Diego for a few days when I was still living in California but had nothing to do with my life because class was over and I wasn't moving to Utah yet. We spent a few hours at SeaWorld (but I didn't take any interesting pictures there) and then went to the beach the first day. The interesting pictures come from the San Diego Zoo, though, which I thought had some amusing signs.
"Please do not annoy, torment, pester, plague, molest, worry, badger, harry, harass, heckle, persecute, irk, bullyrag, vex, disquiet, grate, beset, bother, tease, nettle, tantalize, or ruffle the animals." (I wanted to get this sign for Chilly so she could have it for her desk at work, but my financial funds are rather lacking.)
These Animals BITE!
"Your wish for luck is very dangerous for the ducks."
There were also black bears kissing And cute Koala bears sleeping. It is hard to take very many pictures of animals at the zoo due to the cage bars getting in the way. Annoying, but there you have it.
However, not an animal, but a cool statue that I liked titled "Rest on the Flight into Egypt" by Donal Hord. Don't ask me where Joseph is, because I don't know, but I kind of want a smaller one of these for my home. More later, but it's been more than an hour since I first started this post, and I need a break!
