How Boring Can You Get?

Annette tagged me for this tag, which should be at least somewhat interesting and insightful, but really mine is NOT.  The reason is because I do not take pictures and I currently have not a single picture saved on my computer (husband recently emptied everything off of here so that I could continue to blog without it shutting down every 3 minutes).  

For this reason I asked Greg to follow the instructions on his computer so that I could:  Post the sixth photo in [my] sixth folder.   He said it was actually the sixth in the sixth in the sixth, which I do not understand except that I know that it probably has something to do with the fact that he takes loads of pictures.  So aren't you dying to see the photo?  Well, here it is!


Wow!  Fascinating!  This is the shot of one of the bodies they're making for a client (it's called a puzzle car, I assume because it is made in pieces and then welded together? And I am unaware of exaclty what part this is.).  I will say that it is quite beautiful, as you can see the aluminum is most excellently well polished with that stripe sanded down the middle.  Plus you can see the awful glass cubed wall (with many of the cubes missing) that lines the side of the shop at Greg's work reflected in it.  (for more pictures, and especially if you're interested in buying a Cobra -- and YOU KNOW YOU ARE -- go here.) 

How exciting!  Well, speaking of exciting things, we found a way to make a little extra money, thanks to a good friend of ours, and I have spent Monday and today frantically typing up articles.  20 of them at 500 words each.  I still have three to go, so I'd better sign off.  But first let me say that typing up ten thousand words about pendants is not my idea of a good time.  Yes, that kind of pendant.  For each article I am given key words such as "opal pendant" and then I write about it, with that much information given as direction.  What a joy.  What a blast.  Let me stop blogging so I can get back to something FUN.
 (and I really hope to catch up today or tomorrow with you all!  I've been missing you, especially since I've had you right under my fingertips this whole time!  But look how disciplined I am!)

It is a rather artistic shot--and 20 articles? Wow. Is it for a catalog or something like that? Have FUN!

Annette Lyon said...

I was wondering where you were. Thanks for explaining the picture. I was thinking, "It's shiny. But what IS it?"

Nathan said...

Fabulous photo. I think it's most compelling because it is not readily recognizable. The mind is stretched a bit trying to figure it out or gauge the scale. The grid of windows really make the shot.

Lara said...

It's actually a very interesting photo.

Good luck with your pendant essays, they do sound quite thrilling.

McEwens said...

It took a moment to guess what the picture was! I would have cheated and found a different one!

Good luck with all your essays!

Heidi Ashworth said...

I want one! A cobra AND an opal pendant! (shhhh! I wasn't here . . .) signed A. Nony Mous

Becky said...

That's a heck of a lot to write about pendants!! Good luck with that.

Melanie J said...

Cool pic. MUCH better than the one I posted for the same meme today.

Good luck finishing the articles!

wendy said...

Who needs all those essays on Pendants. Ah, for the photo ---I thought it was a mail box.

Kazzy said...

I loved how you said we were right under your fingertips. Cool! And any time you can make a few extra pesos (only the Polish version)and stay home with the kids you are lucky! Good luck.

Karen said...

You should have made your own contest by asking us to try and figure out what that picture was!

Sue Q said...

I think you should start a photo contest. Who can come up with the most original hood ornament to fill in the empty space on that super-shiny car? I know! How about an OPAL PENDANT?

Heather of the EO said...

Oh my gosh, you're hilarious. Somehow this was not boring at all :)

Alison Wonderland said...

Um, you lost me on the whole article thing. But the picture was shiny.

Rebecca said...

Oooh, pretty shiny picture...

Were you saying something? :D


Good luck with your opal writing.

You ARE disciplined. I'm impressed. And that picture reminded me of those clue cards in Cranium game where you have to guess what the picture is.

Erin said...

I am impressed with your discipline. That is a pretty cool picture too.

charrette said...

So. Not. Boring.

I love cool, abstract photos like that! And now we know what Greg does in his office. He designs Cobras? Or maybe he number-crunches. I just think it sounds cool.

And I have to add that it's about TIME you got paid to write! (Although pendants are boring...cash is cash!) Way to go!

Heather said...

So, I can't believe that no one else has said this yet, and you can quote it to Greg to prove that not all of your readers are just kiss-ups,(although I totally agree that your blog doesn't remind me of lower back tattoos) YOU REALLY NEED TO START TAKING MORE PICTURES OF YOUR KIDS!!!!! OK, maybe I just feel strongly about it because I don't have many childhood pictures of myself, but really.... it is so fun and easy with digital cameras.
