Well, lately I've been hassled by various friends (Renee) and relatives (Lori) to update my blog more often. First of all, I'd like to refer you to the comment I made a few posts back about not feeling guilty about not updating my blog. I don't feel guilty. Ok maybe a little. I love blogging, I really do...I'm not sure why I haven't felt motivated to write lately. So I've been sitting here trying to decide what to write about tonight. I still need to do a post on Venezuela (although it's been going on 4 months since I went!) but I'm feeling too lazy to upload any of the photos right now. Then I thought maybe I'd talk about an awkward conversation I had with someone about the fact that I'm still single. But who wants to hear me go on a rant and rampage, trying to change the view that so many people have of singleness? Yes, I will leave that to another post...Instead I'll tell you about the privilege I have this weekend, to be Tanneal's assistant at a wedding. She is a fabulous photographer, if you haven't already heard and you can see some of her pictures here. So I have no clue what to do as an assistant but I guess I'll find out pretty fast on Saturday. She'll probably just make me go on Timmies runs, carry all her equipment around on my back and just generally work me to the bone (T, if you're reading this, I'm kidding...). At any rate, I hear there will be lots of wine at the reception so at least I'll have T to be my designated driver (wink!!). Anyway I'm sure it will be a great weekend, and perhaps some of that talent will rub off on me!

You know I'd never hassle you!! In fact I just wanted to share all my bloggy love with you is all...lol I'd love to see your Venezuala pics!!! Just so I can live vicariously through you in that experience...lol And being single isn't all that bad....ya know if I could have done it all over again I would have waited until I was older to get married....would have been more mature minded. But I know it's just nice to have someone. And being a photographer's assistant! Embrace it!!! It's fun and you'll learn so much!!!! Have a great time!

when someone starts an awkward singleness conversation with you just tell them that you really aren't single, you have a whole harem of men at your beck and call. Tell them you are bringing back polygamy. Or say "well, I WANTED to marry YOUR husband but since he seems to be taken I guess I'll have to wait and see what GOD wants for me!"

love you. you rock.

Um, ok, so I NEVER READ BLOGS anymore, and today of all days I decide to go through my list and voila, you are raving about me.

And btw, I have no idea what your role as an assistant is going to look like either. I'm just flying by the seat of my pants here!

And ya, that's it...I guess I should go and return your phone call now.
