Three Pictures: Foxes in Japan

Sometimes, a theme just presents itself. Our Japan trip filled camera rolls with foxes – statues, actual live foxes, and a little origami. Picture 1: Fushimi Inari, near Kyoto, is best known for its orange-red torri gates – there are supposedly 10,000 of them – I didn’t count them, and it seems like no one…

Outfit Meltdowns and Failures to Get Dressed..

Confession: Last night it took me about 37 attempts to put on clothes. One of the secret little things I pride myself on is being able to get ready quickly, and make an outfit that looks like I put a lot of effort into it, without much actual fuss. I shop deliberately for items that…

Crypt Creeper – Behind a Red Wall, Munich, Germany

Inside this red wall someplace in Munich, we found a small cemetery on accident.. I don’t know its name or how to find it on the map. Since Ich kerne nicht… no words, only pictures.                  

Crypt Creeper – Waverly Cemetery, Sydney, Australia

¬†On the last day of a press stop in Sydney, a friend and I woke up early to do the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk in a mad rush before our flight home. I wasn’t confident it would be a must-do; I’d seen oceans before, but the drama of cliffs jutting out of beaches, the…

Every Hotel Room

About a year ago, I realized that work travel was going to become a part of life for me. While it was all still new and exciting, I decided to take a photo of myself every night I was in a hotel room, for a year. I didn’t necessarily have a strong direction at the…

The “Secret” Bowman Cemetery

There is a secret cemetery in my neighborhood. It’s not actually secret, but the first time I accidentally found it, it seemed like it was. I was running randomly in the dark, listening to a podcast about murderers, trying to forget I was running. The garbage alley I was traveling through ended and I was…

Video Game Visibility Project: Life is Strange

  I forgot Life is Strange Episode 1 was coming out. So right when I was feeling confident in my lack of need for new games.. I pretty much had to buy it. I wanted to play it before I heard much chatter about it, and I could tell chatter was already starting. So I…

Nerdvember Outfits; Late Recap

Yes, it is in fact January now. I had intended to do a round up of all of my outfits for Set to Stunning’s Nerdvember, and I didn’t get to it in a timely fashion. I find I still want to ramble on a little about it, so I’m doing a very late round up….

Anyplace Glamorous : Walking in New York, Thai Grill and Sushi

So I admit, New York actually is glamorous. The Anyplace Glamorous category was invented for places that have “found” glamour. Or maybe created. But I’m going to let this one through for some reason, just a walk in the dark that wouldn’t make it to the front of the queue if I was making real…

Video Game Visibility Project: Pixel Creature Hats

I’m in Louisville for Forecastle Festival right now, but before I make myself a liar, I need to make a post on these video game related hats I got at Screwattack Gaming Convention. To be clear, this is something I tried to buy, but Alec of Freaks and Geeks wouldn’t take the money. So here’s…
