Wordless Wednesday

Man, that just sucks. Almost as funny looking as a tow truck being towed. XP

Mexico trip - Day 7

We drove south of Puerto Vallarta to eat at a restaurant on the beach.
Mom and Sophie took pictures of the salt and pepper... lol.

Mom asked me to get a shot of the old people swimming, so I did. Hahaha.

Yes, here's me. If you know me, you know I get into positions like this all the time, solely for photography.

Here's the shot I was taking. I don't even really like how it turned out.

I think this was taken through Sophie's sunglasses. This was the beach at the restaurant. Looks kinda like Oregon, doesn't it? There's a pelican in there! It's flying.

This is the hotel that the restaurant was part of.

We stopped at the Malecon on the way back to the house. This is me, Mom and Soph.

CLOSE-UP! But look, it's me! (I love Soph's sunglasses)

Mom decided she wanted to take a photo every time the car stopped. I told her to take a shot of this tree, because it looked cool.....

I think it's a mango tree!!
And this is where our famous family video fits in. Now available for the entire world to see. The epitome of my family, pretty much.

I did actually get some pictures of the cows! I had a bit of an obsession with them...

Ten on Tuesday

I've been searching around, and I've found a meme to do for every day but Sunday.

I found "Ten on Tuesday", and I'm doing a few past ones...

10 Favorite Actors/Actresses

1) Dame Helen Mirren - Because I drool when I see her, that's why. Oh, and she's amazingly talented, versatile, often nude, etc.
2) Meryl Streep - Brilliant brilliant brilliant. She can do ANYTHING. She does accents like nobody else.
3) Dame Maggie Smith - 'nuff said.
4) Alan Rickman - I find him incredibly interesting. He seems a mystery, but really nice. He's very british, and sexy in a odd sort of way.
5) Zoë Wanamaker - She played Madam Hooch in the first Harry Potter film, and is currently playing Susan Harper in the britcom "My Family", which is an awesome show, you should check it out.
6) Dame Diana Rigg - Both my Dad and I have had crushes on her character Emma Peel from the '60s show The Avengers, LOL. I've always found that amusing. She's a great stage actress, and I would LOVE to see her perform some day, even though I'm accepting the fact that that will probably never happen.
7) Harrison Ford - Han Solo, Indiana Jones... okay, so I haven't really seen him in much else, and I wouldn't call him an amazing actor, but... he's INDIANA JONES, ya know??
8) Megan Mullally - I learned a lot about myself through being a fan of hers, and even though I no longer follow her every move, I still greatly admire her. And she's back to singing on broadway again, go Megan!
9) Dame Judi Dench - Legendary.
10) Imelda Staunton - Terrific actress. I love her hysterically funny characters. She may be shrimpy, but boy she has presence!

10 Places You’d Take a Tourist to See in Your Hometown

1) The Courthouse, expecially between 5 and 6pm during the daily Peace Vigil.
2) The waterfront. Fountains, statues, etc.
3) OSU Campus. Specifically the MU, quad, library...
4) Nearly Normals, the only entirely vegetarian restaurant in town. YUMMM
5) Something at The Majestic or CHS Theater.
6) The library
7) Avery park. We have awesome parks here.
8) Folk dancing!
9) Various places downtown... Burst's Candy, The Book Bin, Northern Star, The Darkside...
10) The farmer's market. Or any other events that might be happening, such as Fall Festival, daVinci Days, Pride Week, etc.

Mexico trip - Day 6

Dad rented us a car, and we took a trip to Sayulita, a cute little town north of Bucerias. It's a surfer attraction spot, the beach gets good waves.
This was on the drive up.

Haha, this is a "look, a camera" face.

We had lunch in Sayulita, and our waiter was from Oregon! He got really chatty when he learned we were too, lol. He said he was staying with his grandparents, who had a house there.

We made lots of doggy friends in Mexico, but this was my favorite. Her name was Azteca, apparenty. I didn't notice that until I saw this photo later.

Crazy-crowded beach! We didn't spend much time there.


A fancy little square at the center of town.

I loved this little window. =)

Diggin' the hair, dude.

Some guys playing drums in the street.

I LOVE all the colors there. Everything is vibrant!

Taken on the drive back to Bucerias.

A Mexican cemetery! Fancyyyyyy.

Mexico trip - Day 5

We just spent this day hanging around Bucerias. I took some photos of some of the gorgeous hibiscus flowers in the yard.

A little Anole trying to hide on a bush. And it worked. Everytime he moved, it took me a while to find him again. I also saw a couple of these little guys puffing out their orange-colored throats, but I never caught it on camera. =( Pretty awesome though.

Bougainvillea! They are EVERYWHERE, and I LOVE them!

Part of the market in Bucerias. Sophie and I tried our hand at bargaining. We were almost starting to get the hang of it, but it was still uncomfortable to get used to.

Iiiiity bity gecko, who I found on the kitchen counter.

Iguanas everywhere!
This is probably my favorite picture of Sophie and me in the water. XP Right before the CRASH.
Sophie lined up some of the shells we collected.

We liked this guy's shirt.
