OK...here's an attempt at meeting the photoblogging requests I got.
Mount St. Helens -- it's pretty far away, and blurry, but I put a helpful arrow on it!!
Here's 1/2 of the Chuck Taylor collection...unfortunately the other half is in a box at my mom and dad's...I forgot a couple boxes when I moved back up this summer. But, I think you get the idea.
Here's the shelf/hook thingie I hang my keys on when I walk in the door. And no, I don't live in a funhouse, I just can't take a reasonably level picture apparently.
Here's the top shelf holding part of my rhinestone picture frame collection...oooohhh shiny! Sorry, but to protect the innocent I had to block out the pictures.
Here's the whole wall. There are probably another 20 frames distributed throughout the rest of the apartment on every flat surface, but once again, you get the picture. And my dad refurbished the chest and my mom painted it...I've said it before, I come from incredibly accomplished and talented people and yet somehow manage to struggle with just meeting the minimum on a daily basis. *sigh*
And just in case you're still paying attention after all those pictures, that sound you hear is me getting dinged. One "you're very qualified but at this time we've decided not to extend an offer to you" email, and another letter of the "we are still considering you, and if you want to come down here on your own dime that's cool, and we'll let you know next month...but we're just not sure yet." I'm going to bed.
