Three days later China scores a point. I just realized on September 24th I bought Petstages Mightie Mouse toys for my cats when I was picking up their food.  Their food by the way is made in Pacoima, California not China so that is good. I didn’t even think about checking when I grabbed it.

I am lucky up till now that this is the first time this has happened as I keep remembering after the fact. Then when I check I have been relieved each time. I need to train my brain. I said it!  This time I did not even realize it till a few minutes ago when I was picking up their toys and thought man this stuff is totally made in China…whoops. :]

Listen, I’m on it.

Day 32 - See

See

I am not going repeat what I already wrote here. A quick synopsis, starting August 1st, 2010 I will publish a picture I take that day everyday for a year (well to be exact I will do this everyday until July 31st, 2011). This is the 32nd of those photographs. Also, there is a Flickr collection called “The Awesome Leftovers” where I put the daily shots (if any) that didn’t make the cut.

This is the kind of blurry vision you can see, the good kind. Here’s more, Day 32 – People, Places and Things.

I am not going repeat what I already wrote here. A quick synopsis, starting August 1st, 2010 I will publish a picture I take that day everyday for a year (well to be exact I will do this everyday until July 31st, 2011). This is the 26th of those photographs. Also, there is a Flickr collection called “The Awesome Leftovers” where I put the daily shots that didn’t make the cut.

Okay, I am back on track. I like these shots. Michelle, Joanna and I had just had dinner and I needed soy milk, so we hit up the Sunshine Mart by St Marks Place, because it is fun times!

Here are the extras, Yo Day 26.

The Dance of Dinner

The Dance of Dinner

I am not going repeat what I already wrote here. A quick synopsis, starting August 1st, 2010 I will publish a picture I take that day everyday for a year (well to be exact I will do this everyday until July 31st, 2011). This is the 20th of those photographs. Also, there is a Flickr collection called “The Awesome Leftovers” where I put the daily shots that didn’t make the cut.

I am not in love with any of the shots I took today or I should say I am unsure of my love for them. This is the first time I have felt this way during the year in pictures. I won’t be too dramatic since I just started, but… :] I need to make sure this doesn’t happen in the future. I personally like this picture because they are my friends and this is them, but structurally I am just not sure I feel it. I don’t know.  Maybe I love it… :D

Here are the extras, Day 20 – Blah.

Going Home

I am not going repeat what I already wrote here. A quick synopsis, starting August 1st, 2010 I will publish a picture I take that day everyday for a year (well to be exact I will do this everyday until July 31st, 2011). This is the 13th of those photographs. Also, there is a Flickr collection called “The Awesome Leftovers” where I put the daily shots that didn’t make the cut.

First off, 13 is my favorite number. I was super worried I wouldn’t have a shot worthy of said number 13, but it turned out fine. I really like this shot. It is around 6:30 or so on the 4 or 5 express train (I didn’t notice) going uptown on my way home from work on a hot Friday night. People always seem so tired at the end of their work day on the train…but it’s Friday!

Here are the rest of the shots that almost made the cut, Day 13 – All Aboard.

Smile.

Through self contemplate self,

Through family contemplate family,

All About Me

I start many things with good intentions, many, many things. This time I intend to stay focused. This time I will not leave behind what I started. This time it is larger and more important than my obsession with Martha Stewart, all design shows, and Teresa Witherspoon. :P This time it is about the greater good...this time I am serious.

Wanna cool, original, organic cotton, handmade, super fresh t-shirt? Yes you do...
