Day 197 of 365 days.

Gotta love technology.

Went to a violin recital with Steph and her family to see her nephew play. At the risk of sounding like an ass, let me say what the biggest problem with kids recitals is. They’re not really that good. I mean sure some of the kids are good. And sure, if you have an emotional connection to one of the kids (as I do, with Ethan) it doesn’t matter if he sounds like Mozart or Jackyl. And I definitely enjoyed watching him play. The problem is that there were like 20 other kids that I didn’t know at all, of varying degrees of skill, and most of them played (or tried to play) the EXACT SAME SONG! So after a couple hours I was really starting to get bored with it. What do I do when I’m bored? I think about 365. I swear, this project is starting to consume my life.

Anyway, for moments of boredom like this, its great to have a smartphone so that I can get some quality web browsing in and check out the streams of other 365ers that I enjoy. At this moment I was looking at today’s shot by the lovely and talented PhotoKat. I was struck to take a shot of it for 365 because 1) I absolutely love Kat’s photography. And 2) I have a much publicized school girl fetish. My hand has never looked so pretty.

Many thanx to Kat for allowing me to use her picture in this one.

    Yes son, sad to say, I saw her pic & thought of you too. Poor Steph, she either has to put up with you or buy a school girl outfit…sigh.

    As for recitals – ha! Deal with it! Goes with the territory – everybody else’s kid sucks. Your’s is the only one with talent! Trust me, it’s even worse when it’s your own kid! So Go Ethan!


    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    @d.rex: ok, I admit it… I have a problem… its a nice problem to have… but yeah…

    @lrayholly: Oh like I didn’t buy her a school girl skirt ages ago. Actually, you knew that, cuz she wore it in her Hermoine Granger halloween costume.

    And yeah, I totally understand the recital thing. I just wasn’t willing to be all delusional about it and pretend that everyone was good. At least not here.

    @PhotoKat: I say thank you for letting me! 🙂 Certainly a much prettier picture than just taking a picture of my hand in the dark.

    You really thought of me… awww…. but am I that predictable?

    LOL!! Okay, I’m another one who saw Kat’s thumbnail and thought of you Mav.
    You ARE predictable when it comes to the Catholic school girl look. 😉
