It’s cool, it’s retro, and there is the surprise of waiting until it is developed. And it makes you focus on technique and finesse, not just taking 50 pictures and choosing the best one. It is more about capturing the moment, and letting that moment tell the story.
– Shawn Psarris [on film]
but i’m not. i’m doing american history while i read blogs and facebook.
but, ha, sometimes this abeka stuff is funny.
from american history:
” in 1619, the first boatload of women arrived in virginia to marry the settlers.”
“Explain how grass reveals God’s care and provision for people and animals. Read Romans 1:20. What does grass reveal about God’s eternal power . Why does its widespread presence make all men responsible to God and without excuse?”

“i’ll turn him into a flea– a harmless little flea– and put him in a box. i’ll put that box in another box, and mail him to myself, and, when it arrives, i’ll smash him with a hammer! or, to save postage, i’ll poison him with this!”
“well, there was this big man, and an old woman… how would you describe her?” “scary beyond reason.”
“Poison, what poison? Oh, right…the poison. The poison for Kuzco…the poison specially designed to kill Kuzco. Kuzco’s poison. That poison?”
“sorry. i tweaked his facial nerve. and i may have stopped his heart.”
“i thought you might be monkey. he hides his almond cookies on the top shelf.”

Yay! Audra is coming to our house on the 9th and will stay till the 11th.
Your mom called me, and was telling me about you, how you were beautiful and perfect in every way. I came to the hospital, and I thought, “Well, they forgot to tell me about her legs.” But I thought it was really nice that they thought you were perfect even though you didn’t have any legs. You had big beautiful brown eyes, and no legs.
Eventually your mom asks me to change your diaper, and I’m like, “Okay, how will this work.” And I take off your diaper, and I say, “Holy cow! She has legs!” And your mom and dad look at me funny and say, “What do you mean?” I told them how I thought you didn’t have any legs, because your legs were up by your ears, and I couldn’t tell that you had legs. Like a chicken.
I was telling your Auntie Charlotte that story, and she never really got it, why it would look like a baby had no legs. But when Asher was born, she told me that she finally understood why one could think that.
This story is told from the perspective of my Auntie Steph talking to me.
I laughed so hard when Auntie Steph called for my birthday and told me this story. It’s been more than 15 times that I’ve heard it, I think.
i wanted a dark theme.
