Happy 12 of 12 Day! For the uninitiated, 12 of 12 is an internet project started by TV writer (formerly of Alias fame; he's now on Crossing Jordan, I believe) Chad Darnell. On the twelfth of every month, people around the world take twelve pictures of their day and post them online.
Slightly self-absorbed in that extra-special bloggish way? Probably. Kind of addictive (to participate and to look at others' entries)? Yes.
So without further ado, a photo essay of my October 12:
I had a 9:30 doctor's appointment this morning, which gave me time for possibly the best morning ritual ever: reading in bed.
Revelation and Frosted Mini Wheats: plenty of fiber and a healthy dose of apocalyptic symbolism. Breakfast of champions.
9:30, Optical Sales, Kaiser Oakland.
Look! No glasses!
Squash, leek, and pesto pizza; also, a discussion of silly regional pronunciations. (Note to Christine: The other one was worse. Really.)
Bask in the glamor of algebra manuscript!
My genuine Louisiana alligator, brought back by my editor from her native Baton Rouge. It's sitting on a model box from the origami book I edited.
The perfect post-work moment: knitting with my Jewish fake-news boyfriend.
The sidewalk-sale table at Walden Pond books.
On the scale at Weight Watchers. I am officially .4 pounds lighter than I was last Thursday.
Sunset from my living room.
Next month: 12 of 12, the November edition! Same bat time, same bat channel. If I don't forget, that is.
