so i missed last week’s photo hunters… so i’m posting both last week and this week themes. the first is steps.. which is self explanatory

and this week is ‘rare’… and it’s rare to have such crazy and awesome friends… especially ones who have so much fun taking pictures with a mannequin head… so here’s my ‘rare’ theme -)

and hey.. don’t forget about the meta four jazz quartet gig tonight at the mosaic piano bar!!! everyone in the milwaukee (or surrounding cities) area(s) please come!! -D (and just in case you forgot the details.. here’s the ‘flyer’ again -) )

i was going to scan this in.. but i kept forgetting to do that.. so i just took a picture so i could share this.

master Chai

this was my ‘thank you’ present from master Chai. this was such an honor to just MEET this man.. let alone get a personalized souvenir from him! seriously.. read his bio and you’ll see what i mean. what an amazing and talented man! he explained in the seminar he was teaching “i’m not that fast anymore”… yet he would throw an undetermined amount of punches in less than a split second. (i tried to count once… but he was too fast for my eye to catch)

anyways… i just wanted to share that. i haven’t been feeling all that great health-wise.. so i’m going to get to bed and try to get some extra sleep.

oh yea… here are some pictures from last weekend

i’m back

ok. so the van isn’t packed yet. but we did get the van.. so that’s half the battle.

anyways.. i’m heading to the twin cities this weekend. if you are in the cities… and have free time.. give me a call or drop me a message. i have a pretty open schedule.. and my name is on the ‘drivers’ of the van. w00t. just like team.

20 ways to maintain a healthy level of insanity

i got this from a co-worker. i have seen it before.. you may have too.. but it’s funny enough to read again -)

20 Ways to Maintain a Healthy Level of Insanity

1. at lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. see If they slow down.

2. page yourself over the intercom. don’t disguise your voice.

3. every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.

4. put your garbage can on your desk and label it “In.”

5. put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.

6. in the memo field of all your checks, write “For smuggling diamonds.”

7. finish all your sentences with “In accordance with the prophecy.”

8. don t use any punctuation

9. as often as possible, skip rather than walk.

10. order a diet water whenever you go out to eat, with a serious face.

11. specify that your drive-through order is “To Go.”

12. sing along at the opera

13. go to a poetry recital and ask why the poems don’t rhyme

14. put mosquito netting around your work area and play tropical sounds all day.

15. five days in advance, tell your friends you can’t attend their party because you’re not in the mood.

16. have your co-workers address you by your wrestling name, “Rock Bottom”.

17. when the money comes out of the ATM, scream “I Won!, I Won!”

18. when leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot, yelling “Run for your lives, they’re loose!!”

19. tell your children over dinner. “Due to the economy, we are going to have to let one of you go.”

20. and … the final way to keep a healthy level of insanity: pass this on. make someone smile -)

this week’s photo hunters theme is ‘hobby’. i have so many “hobbies” .. it was hard to narrow it down. but i figured.. graphic design and photography are more than just a hobby.. it’s also my profession.. so i chose music as my hobby. here’s me playing the drums with metaFour jazz quartet

let there be MUSIC!

in my cubicle!

these were delivered to me at work today:

(yes.. the remote hovers in the air like that. cool eh? -P )

so now i don’t have to wear headphones while i listen to my ipod at work. and when i was wearing my headphones i couldn’t hear my phone.. or would be surprised by co-workers who came to tell me something/ask a question… so i would have to listen to only one headphone.. and it was a little uncomfortable to do that. and i found these little speakers at overstock.com for pretty cheap. and they go nice and quiet.. so it’s perfect for my little desk area!

tracy = happy. -)

ps. happy friday the 13th
