because i like pictures

It's Saturday night and I have been video taping horse shows in the 100 degree Burbank heat all day (not the sort of thing I thought I would be doing with my MFA), and I've been scanning all these old pictures for Rachel and Alexis and they got me thinking about pictures. I haven't posted any from the summer, so here are some of my favorites:

CHERUBS

the faculty (minus Caleb, who urgently had to go to the gym): Jim, Dusty, Adam, Kevin, Glen, Kevin, Melissa, Joe, Marci and me. I LOVE THESE PEOPLE.

Sadly, I have no pictures of Tim, Pat and my drunken viewing of Mamma Mia!, but trust me, the memories are priceless.

Soon I will put up some pictures from Camp and oh hey, maybe tell you something about it. I am deplorably behind in this respect, and I'm sure you're all on pins and needles waiting to hear whether Dad and I won the Trivial Pursuit tournament.

  1. I have spent more of my post-college life working on reality shows and pitches about equestrian sports than you have spent breathing. In fact I am cutting something horse-related next week, God help me.

    I don't know why people think it makes a good subject for TV. It does not. The ratings bear out my opinion as well.
