My moment in the CNN spotlight

Before I went to Blogher12 last week, I hung out with my friends Maya and Jeshua.  We made a day of it! We went to Lincoln Center, Central Park, and the Natural History Museum!  And of course, we did all this traveling by the way of the subway.

And this is where I made my national debut…

I spotted a camera guy with a lady standing next to the Subway track. I was kinda curious, since it was NYC and all, and you never know what shenanigans might be going on.  When the lady turned around, I totally realized it was the quirky reporter from CNN!  I quickly made a little shift to the right to get in the shot.  LOL.  I even snapped a quick photo! I guess one might consider it a photobomb!

Kathy later informed me that it was CNN reporter Jeanne Moos. I grew up watching her reports on Headline News!

Look for me at the 2:06 mark behind her!  You’ll see Maya and Jeshua in there too.

I thought it was pretty cool. It’s not everyday I make a national news segment!

Until next time Swellions!

A quick digi project and this and that


So, I whipped up this project last night on the fly. It’s for a friends’ coffee table. Several other people I know are makine 6×6 canvases to go under his coffee table as well as an interesting art series all focused on bugs.

I am feeling a little icky today over dealing with confrontation. I really hate doing it and don’t have to in day in day out situations, but you know when something rears it’s ugly head, sometimes you just have to approach it even when you don’t want to. I’ve always had anxiety over such things and don’t always feel equipped to deal. I guess I need to just do it and learn and experience…seems like most times it is not usually as bad as I seem to make it out to be in my head. Just not fun.

I just went to Subway. Why is it that I always gravitate toward the same type of sandwich? Anyone else do this? My favorite is the Italian BMT on Italian herbs and Cheese. I guess when you find something you like it’s hard to change. Thankfully, though I’ve gotten over chicken finger ordering at nice restaurants. That used to be the thing I always got. Now, I figure it’s one of the worst things I could get on the menu health-wise, so I tend to avoid it.

I’m all by my lonesome today at work. Just the sound of me typing and the air conditioning going. I really hope this afternoon goes by quickly. I plan on going to the arboretum later tonight and out to eat. Trying to make an exercise plan. Last night, I rode around my neighborhood 4 times. It’s actually not that much, but I was still sweating by the time I got through. I came back in and I had only been gone for 15 minutes. Geez. Well, atleast it was something!

Until tomorrow Swellions. Have a great day!
