Day 305 of 365 days.

Yet another day. Yet another GFY from yet another job.

Spent the morning being depressed about that, while working on tarot cards and other photoshoot stuff. Then, Steph asked me to drive out to her office and have lunch with her at Sree’s (one of our favorite Indian Restaurants) which has a lunch truck on CMU campus.

When I got to campus, I couldn’t find Steph. What I did find was a plate of Indian food sitting on the ground. I leaned over to pick it up and when I stood I saw Steph standing across from me with a giant black cannon with the word ACME written across the side and a fuse burning from the top. A second later the canon went off right at my chest.

Steph can be mean sometimes.

365 days

Also for the Take a Class with Dave group. Assignment: Love (i’ve done kisses before. Wanted to do something different)

    Why are so many people laughing at my pain?

    "There’s a hole in my heart
    That can only be filled by you"

    Well, a bit more than your heart, and only a nip off the R ventricle, anyway.

  11. June 12, 2007 at 9:55 pm

    You’ll get better.

  12. June 12, 2007 at 9:58 pm

    @phlewght: Thanx for reminding me, I almost forgot to add it to the CWD group.

    @Jack Scoresby: Oh totally. It’s only a flesh wound.

    @lrayholly: I was just minding my business eating some birdseed… err… I mean indian food. She’s just mean.

  14. June 12, 2007 at 10:08 pm

    HA! That’s what you get for eating that Acme brand Indian food!

  15. June 12, 2007 at 10:13 pm

    @MegaBee: no no no. The food was Sree’s. The cannon was ACME.

  17. June 12, 2007 at 10:26 pm

    I think this is a lot worse than biting a dog’s ear. Is that Steph checking out her work?

  18. June 12, 2007 at 10:42 pm

    wow, she really lured you in with that plate-of-food trick… 🙂

    Seen in my contacts’ photos. (?)

    @Ms.Blue: wow… thank you. Honestly I just thought it was silly.

    @Stephen Poff: Hah. I didn’t even think of that. I never saw the movie, though I was aware that scene was in it.

    @sadandbeautiful (Sarah): thanks.

  23. June 13, 2007 at 12:09 am

  35. June 13, 2007 at 11:49 am

    Ha, this made me laugh. Sometimes I think you deserve to be blown through with a canon ;-P Very cool shot babe!

  36. June 13, 2007 at 12:12 pm

    Reminds me of Meryl Streep in ‘Death Becomes Her’
    Just replace Steph with Goldie Hawn.

    That’s some sweet photoshop work.

    Hey Mav, here’s our copycat for Founder’s Day. Your mom had a really good idea. This was fun. I hope you enjoy!

    @Ginger_Blue: glad you liked it. As silly as this one was, it’s always been one of my favorites. So I’m glad someone copied it.
