B– took sick on Friday, so my usual weekend schedule was preempted by tending to his general, sick-dude care and maintenance (i.e., ordering takeout and playing a fuckton of Lego Star Wars III with him). Needless to say, I fell a little behind on my blog posting.

So, in an effort to catch up, here are the images that would have made up my Week that Was post on Saturday. I believe they’re all from my new place of work, which is badass beyond imagining.

I’m charging up my DSLR’s battery tonight, so you can expect a new outfit post come tomorrow evening. I’m getting back on this blog train, everybody.

Hope you’re having a frank and productive week!


Here’s what I wore to my first day at my new job. The weather report called for a bit of cold and a bunch of rain (of which there ended up being none) and I had a 40 minute commute downtown via MUNI. So, I thought I would dress warmly and wear low-heeled, closed-toe shoes. It didn’t go quite so well. I hadn’t realized how much my feet would slide around due to the tights and my toes kept jamming painfully into the front of the shoes. AND THEN, I didn’t get to loom menacingly over anyone. Boo.

Shoe miscalculations aside, it was a pretty good day. Everyone was super nice and it looks as though I’ll have lots of fun stuff to work on. PLUS, the office is just packed with awesomeness! Here are several pics from today… Read the rest of this entry »

I had an exceptionally busy week and next week will be even busier. I’ve landed a brand new position at a games publisher and start on Monday.

This is kind of a huge deal to me. (As you may know, I am a wicked hardcore console gamer.) I’ve done some marketing and communications consulting in the video games industry in the past, but this will be my first full-time position. What’s most amazing about this new position, though, is that I’ll be working in production. I’m essentially starting over completely in an entirely new field, moving from a Marketing VP to an Associate Producer. It’s kinda crazy, but I couldn’t be more excited. Seriously, I feel incredibly fortunate that I’m getting this opportunity. Marketing is okay and all, but now I’ll be MAKING GAMES.

I’m not sure how the new position will affect my blogging, but I have every intention of keeping the blog up and running with new posts popping up as frequently as possible. The next week may be a bit slow for posts as I transition into the new job and new commute, but I’ll figure it out.

Anywho, how about some pictures?

Earlier this week I downloaded the Hipstamatic app for iPhone. It is super rad. I still kinda can’t get over how much we can do with a phone these days. I remember when cell phones came in bags the size of a pet carrier.

Anywho, pics from the week that was February 27 through March 5 behind the cut. Read the rest of this entry »

I mean, I was born in the 70s so they had to be at least a little awesome. Well, I was born in the later half of the 70s, so, I guess we could say that the first five years totally blew, but the last five years were a total bitchin’ rock star from Mars.

Anyway, this maxi dress makes me think of the 70s. So, for the photographs I used a Photoshop action called “Seventies,” which I found on The Pioneer Woman thanks to the wicked awesome Heather Mann. I think it worked! It kinda looks like the 70s. Everything was kinda hazy and sepia tone then, right?

I really like this next picture because it looks like I’m about to say something, but I don’t remember any point in the picture taking process when I said anything at all. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s a strangely sunny day today, but I just wasn’t in the mood for it.

Outfit components:

When I bought these booties, I asked the lady trying on shoes next to me whether they looked “a little witchy.” She said they didn’t, but, you know what? She was wrong. They are wicked witchy. Oh, well.

In other news, I can’t stop playing with Photoshop Actions. However, I have reached a point where I no longer can tell whether the actions are helping or hurting. So much to learn…
