Yeah, so the big 45 foot tall oak in our front yard fell down today.  I was engrossed in editing pictures, and I felt this big thud rock the house.  I looked outside, no joke, to see if smoke was rolling across the ground, or if there was some kind of big cloud like you see in the movies or something, and thought, "eh, nothing", and went back to my work.  Like 10 minutes later my Mom called to me with a great deal of concern in her voice to come, I thought she had fallen or something.  Well, no she hadn't fallen, but something else had.  We go outside and like half of the tree was all laid out across the neighbor's yard, and our yard, and like on top of one of their trees (poor thing didn't stand a chance, just a baby). And the creaking sound kind of gave us a hint as to what would happen next.  Out of balance by it's other half having come down, the bigger part of the tree came crashing down with an earth-shaking, well, crash.  So that part of the fence was, rather, dead as well now too.  

Moral of the story:  Always take pictures when you feel inspired to do so.  

So like, there were these cute little mushrooms blooming out in the yard yesterday, adorable little things, and I was like, oh I want to take portraits of the mushrooms!  Maybe photoshop some pixies in or something!  (Yeah, it went through my mind, k?)  Then I promptly remember that I take myself more seriously then that, and I just appreciated their symmetry and the coloring.  So like, today the tree didn't "exactly" flatten them, but all the crazy wind and debris from them totally killed them.  I was glad I had taken pictures when I did.  

We watched Coraline tonight too.  Very cute little movie.  Talked a little afterwards.  It was just a good movie to watch, we decided.  Too often movies have the same storyline and plotline, and if you can predict at the beginning of the movie what is going to happen, or who the bad guy is, i.e. Scooby Doo-style, then honestly it ain't worth watching for its merits, IMO.  Yeah I'll watch them like everyone else, if for nothing else but entertainment.  But really, too often movies are violent, absurd, etc.  Everything but telling a story.  My hat off to Henry Selick for writing a fantastic screenplay.  

Christina's pictures have again taken a back seat tonight to my other endeavors.  Sorry.
