Pieces of Life

Earlier this week, whenever I'd walk by my co-worker Ann's desk, I noticed she had an amused look on her face. She explained to me that her mom had just learned how to send a picture through text and had been sending her pictures all day of things around the house. She gave me permission to share some of them:

These pictures are just too funny to me. Especially the cat's water bowl!

If you had just learned to send pictures through text, what would you send someone a picture of? I have an idea, how about if you do just that and send it to me? I'd love to see a slice of your life. It doesn't have to be anything interesting. E-mail them to me, or text me if you have my number. I'll publish some of them on here after a few days - I think it'll be fun.

Not to be bossy, but do it soon before you forget!

That is funny. I remember when my mom first learned to text, but all she could reply was, "ok". It was great because you could ask her anything.

I'll get on the picture.

(I need to leave my comment FAST before anyone beats me to being the first to comment on this!! This has been a goal of mine on my bucket be the first to leave a comment on your posting!)

I actually had a friend request this from a bunch of friends, and sadly, what lied in front of me was a closed text book, a stack of flash cards, and a little bottle of BYU chocolate milk. If I sent a picture to someone at this very moment, they would see something similar: an open text book, no note cards, a notebook, and a small bottle of vitamin water I purchased at WalMart. I think that sums up my life for the past few years. I love school and all, but I'm getting too old for this!

E, I'll have you know that, when I met with my professor today to discuss the direction of my work and the concept behind my paintings, the pictures you and Ann were exchanging came up. You may have inspired my thesis to head in a slightly new direction! It was already going along these lines, but this is opening things up for me a thanks!! :) And I already sent you my picture, but I'm sure I'll send lots more.

P.S. The cat water bowl is my favorite, too! Both the mouse image painted inside the bowl, and the idea that this was something you'd think to take a picture of! I love it! And I kind of want to meet Ann's mom now. :)

That's so cute! I think I took about 50 pictures of my pets when I got my first camera phone. In fact, when I switched to a new phone, the Verizon guy transferred my info from the old one to the new one. He told me I had 130 pictures to transfer, and then he gave me this "are you kidding me" look! He was totally judging me!

My dad completely disabled texting on their cell phone plan. He said he doesn't understand it, so he wanted to make sure he never received them. :)-
