an arm and a leg

-A couple walking arm in arm through the park.

-A pink cottonball sunset behind the dark outline of my church.

-Meeting up with Catherine at St. George's (and incidentally seeing Fiona and the Sedgewicks there too) and then going with her as she took pictures for a photography project she's doing. Her subject is a one-armed, one-legged doll her mother had in the 50's and she's taking picture of her all around town. It was a hilarious exercise, because people kept walking by as the doll was repositioned and Catherine with all the style of a Hollywood producer snapped photos. As people walked by many tried to hold in their laughter, and then just couldn't and we all laughed. There's not a lot that's more random than stumbling upon the photo shoot of a one-armed, one-legged doll. That's why it was so much fun!

-Going dancing with my fun carnival girls at the Oh Yeah! Centre, a really hip, quirky venue that turns into a club every two weeks. The crowd was wonderfully older than the usual clubs and so all the music was 80's and 90's. When I came in, Caoimhe (that's pronounced "Kieva" by the way), Suzie (the birthday girl), Denise and John all welcomed me with hugs and "Yaaaaay you're here!" and we danced the night away. John's one of the carnival drummers and I had no idea he could move like that! He's also my postman, and so at one point I turned to him and said, "You're a good dancer! You should deliver the mail like that." He quipped back, "What makes you think I don't??"
