These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

I can remind myself that my hair has been purple a LONG time.

Me, 1984.

Phoenix- there's no sense in getting upset about it-- nothing I can *DO* about it anyway. I am the age I am. *shrug* Getting upset over such a thing is silly.

phoenix - I wasn't trying to upset bronx, it's just usually I'm at least 10 years older than people on here. It's nice to find people from a similar era. And are you really almost 50? If that's you in the clothes shopping pic I woulda said more my age.

In '84 I was in my penultimate year of college :) Keeping that sense of wonder, yay!

bronxelf says:

See, I will turn around and smack *all y'all* upside the head. Don't even.

540air says:

I'm glad you're not bronx as that was never my intention :)

In '84 I was racing BMX bikes and starting my 'O' levels. :)

bronxelf says:

540- In 84? I was in the middle of high school. No worries.

15th Apr 2005, 15:32

Euphro says:

Numerical age, biological age, it's all irrelevant. Inside my head I still feel largely the way I did when I was seven or eight, just with more layers of experience on the outside :)

I'm tired.
I'm hungry.
How far?
My nose is snotty
Need to move my body
Gotta use the potty
Better stop the car.

cool. Both my wife's parents are/were teachers (they're retired rather than dead). It's a career I thought about but wasn't sure enough of myself to go for.

Misha: You have YEARS of that to look forward to.

I cant WAIT for this one to bite you on the ass. *LOL*

anathemad says:

I just pray they put animaniacs out on DVD. This way when my kids do it I can just play that episode and keep some humor to it.

Oh and Av - sometimes I *like* to be bitten on the ass ;)

Rich: Be advised: Youth and skill will always lose to age and treeachery.

Ghead. Ask Anathemad if Im kidding. *EG*

Daz: Just letting you know-- my pink Chuck high tops? Are older than you. Just sayin.

Misha- Well there's a difference between us-- I HATE being bitten there. OMG, I hate it. Instant reflex to swing.

That's a great idea, Euphro! :D

bronxelf: Ah, that's cool actually! :D I can't wear my shoes from 1984 anymore... Wonder why. :)
