...I just found out that a dear LJ friend's father passed away early this morning. :( I was literally in tears for her whole family when I found out, since I know a little of the pain that comes from experiencing someone you love passing away. Ironically, just 18 days from now will be 13 years since my own father passed away from cancer too. :(

I've said it time and time again, but the hardest thing about online friendships is the distance and the feeling of helplessness when someone you care about is hurting so far away. :( I know that Amanda and her family have much better things to do than sit around online, but I wanted to send out some Big *HUGS* and major prayers her way. I've been reading her journal for a very long time (long before her father became ill) and I know what a hard road it's been for her entire family and my heart totally goes out to them. :(

Sydney is...

Sydney photo frenzy...

Spent the better part of my morning with my digital camera in poor Sydney's face. She hates the camera with a passion now and will run away from it. I can't understand it since I never use the flash when I photograph her and I've turned off the sound to my digital. Nevertheless it's turned from "play time" into "let's run under the table out of camera range" time recently when my camera comes out. :(

I managed to take one photo of her begging for food which I love because she has those sad puppy-dog eyes that she uses to get sympathy from us (and eventually part of our meals). :P The others were taken last weekend when I was trying to get new expressions on film, etc. The lighting is really bad on some of these and I'd hardly call it flattering for poor Sydney, but I thought I'd post them anyway.

Other than that, Mark & I went to the market and Mark found scrapple (which I'd only seen for the first time today) Despite our diets, he had to get it since it was the first time he claims he's ever seen it in Hawaii. Looks nasty to me! :P Blech!

Tomorrow I start my week long web class at CTA. I'm looking forward to it and hoping that it gives me some motivation to start doing something creative again.
