The season's first snowfall

What is this stuff?


Saturday, November 15, 2008


I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried.

Precipitation: (as defined by falling products of condensation in the atmosphere, such as rain, snow, or hail

From the intercom: "Good morning, students. If you have already arrived, you may come to the office to wait until the bell rings."

And a few minutes later: "Due to the wetness of this morning's precipitation, you may wait in the office until the bell rings."
Teacher: "Why can't owls eat bones?"
Student: "Because they don't have forks."

I'm still around, just not here

It may appear that in the past few weeks I've gotten pretty slack about posting, and I guess that's true to a point, at least when it comes to this particular blog.

Occasionally (ha!) I tend to loose focus on one thing when a new interest/obsession crosses my path. You ever hear that saying that goes something like "Some people think I have ADD, but I - ooh, look, a shiny object"? That would be me. If I get more than one thought in my head at a time it becomes too crowded and the extra ones must vacate the premises immediately. But anyway, I digress.

In June I got bitten multiple times by the photography bug and that itch it's causing? It just won't go away. In fact, it's gotten worse. On the other hand, I'd like to think my ability to take pictures has improved. I'm really into wanting to just click away at everything under the sun/clouds/rain/raging blizzard/dark of night. This interferes a little bit with other things like eating, sleeping, doing laundry and working, but I'm not much concerned with trivial things like that when I'm obsessing. Anyway, to 'showcase' what I've done, I put together a photoblog and in the last week have managed to hit up most everyone I know, begging them to pretty-please-with-sugar-on-top let me take their picture. If all goes as planned, tomorrow I'll be taking photos of some friends.

If you live in the Denver area and are interested in having some photos taken for free, let me know. You can email me at betsy(dot)huffstetler at gmail(dot)com and we'll see what we can do!
