Friday Randomness : Einstein + Email Addresses


Yesterday I set out to carpe the heck out of my diem. No, really, I was determined not to become overwhelmed with everything, including a two hour drive to an engagement session. I made a new play list, packed snacks, and slipped into a comfy pair of shoes for what the day held after sitting at my desk all morning. On my way home after the shoot, the commute was a solid red 4-hour line on my iphone that led from Ventura to Orange County.

My carpe-ing? It was making me work.

Not to be deterred, I pulled off the freeway and got a manicure. I’m pretty sure I’m annoying as I sound, but it was either that or be seen on the nightly news. LATINA PULLS OFF HER EARRINGS AND GOES CRAZY ON THE 405 FREEWAY.

In more random things about life, here are a few gems I came across the Internet this week…

I’m not really the baking type, but these camera cookie cutters are too cute to pass by. If you make them, I’ll eat them!

I’m not brave enough to share my first AOL email address…

Happy Friday!

    Jasmine, I am going to have to borrow that British anarchy cartoon and email it to my very British father – he is going to love it. You had me laughing out loud at my desk (thankfully my boss is out, or he may have thought I was crazy . . but not freeway crazy 🙂 Have a great weekend!

    Haha "pulled off her earrings!" Made me think of two of my good high school friends who were Dominican & Puerto Rican, they even carried "back up earrings" in case anything happened to the first pair & they were def the first thing to come off if things got hairy!! Happy Friday!

    Hey Jasmine, – I’ve seen those cookie cutters making their way around the internet. Way cute! I want to have a photography themed party just so I can buy them! 🙂 That artist list is hysterical..yet so sad at the same time. I’m guilty of way too many of those items! Eeeek!!

    Have a great weekend.

    I am taking the Texas bar in 11 days & I can’t stop reading your magazine (it arrived this afternoon). Photography is what got me through those 2 years (I rushed it) & (I know this is weird. I know) but I feel like I have to take & pass the bar before I can legitimately pursue photography whole-heartedly. A finishing what I began thing. Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for writing the ‘zine–it’s just the inspiration I need after the last two grueling months (dream food) of study. I’m bummed that there’s no Fix for me because I’ll be busy trying to remember what amendment gives what right to whom, but I’m pretending you’re going to pick my yet-to-be-taped video for the creative live course. Yep-pretending. Mostly, though, Gracias! Now, back to page 53 in the mag or back to taking notes on consumer rights?

    santa gave me those cookie cutters for christmas. i have yet to make cookies but i use them to make camera sandwiches as my daughter calls them – pb+j – fun shapes with the lens detail – she eats her sandwich every single time! i hear the 405 is a good taste of your patience!! manicure was a wise choice i’m sure.

    That last one makes me feel old, because email didn’t exist when I was 11 years old. My first email account was the one assigned to me during my first year of college, in the fall of 1995. 🙂

    Try having to give out the e,ail address your MOM made FOR you when you were 11 "based" on your interests. Embarrassing doesn’t even begin to describe it.

    February 20th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    I love them as always. Buying the cookie stuff right now! And I don’t even bake. 🙂 I have to now. I love the awkward moment when you have to give someone that email address. My husband had an email that was He named it that because there was a big shiny thing on the floor when he was trying to set up his email. It was cool through college though he didn’t really know why or care to ask. But one day a few years back he was putting a resume together for a job, I asked him, "Are you really going to put that on your resume?!" with a little sarcasm. He said, "yeah." I told him to re-think it. All of a sudden a look came across his face and he broke out in to loud laughter. What once was innocent was not longer. He changed it right then.

    LA traffic…gotta love it…. I’ve stopped at IKEA on the way back fromOC to LA…. I ended up redoing the whole kids playroom over… would have been cheaper to just get a manicure….
