Up until this morning, the status for my new camera was by “end of day” today. Notice my use of past tense. While we were having our doggie adventure this happened:

Seattle, WA, United States
07/24/2014 3:17 P.M. Arrival Scan
07/23/2014 10:00 A.M. A late UPS trailer arrival has caused a delay. We’re adjusting plans to deliver your package as quickly as possible.

…sound of grinding teeth….sobs mentally…it’s okay…it rained a lot of today…there’s time for it to arrive before I go…other humans at the house know to watch for the box too…I’m about to go have fun for days, right?…are we there yet?

I’m a forum believer that pre-travel angst is better than actual travel angst, so I’m gonna suck it up, pull up my butch panties and get effin packed for this trip tonight.

So,… Last week I decided I just had to get my hair trimmed before I spent two weeks in Oregon, traveling and camping. And I discovered that I don’t have purple hair dye in my stash, so I’m doing a lateral, and my hair color is going to wind up channeling this shirt, whatever that turns out to be by the time I hit the road Sunday morning.

So this is from earlier today. That’s Lisette, who cuts my hair. She’s @BabaLouiseSalon on 65th. They have chandeliers, shop dogs and tons of local art too.

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
PHOTOGRAPHY BITCHES

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts

I’m so happy
