i will influence your id with my voodoo

under the couch: duplo block and baby baseball cap. pink stain: origins unknown

not actually a "pose". I didn't even know I had "flipped" my hair like this until I had uploaded the pictures. The camera was just set up to click click click. Which actually sort of worries me. Do I do this all the time??? I wonder if people think I'm some sort of hussy.

First off, I didn't forget, about my Aldo Bag Giveaway, that is. A couple of weeks ago I headed over to a random number generator, popped in the numbers and waited. The number that came up?-10. So I meandered over to my blog, riffled through my posts, and found out who was number 10. And now you are curious. So I will tell you: the ever lovely Snappy Q. Delightful, yes? Only Miss Q happens to be my sister-in-law. So I thought, oh dear, people will think it is rigged!

So I wandered back over to the number generator, popped in the numbers again and waited. Well, to my surprise POP number 10, again. So I figure it's fate. Either that or God likes me and knows that I am lazy and wants to encourage my laziness because this means that I don't have to mail the bag. I just have to wait a few days until Miss Snappy comes to visit (she does indeed live a province away, but as fate would have it, she will be here in a few days). Of course it could also mean that God loves Miss Q. But I prefer to think he is encouraging my laziness.

Nonetheless Miss Q will still have to abide by the rules and post on her blog the loot she receives in her bag!

I hope none of you think I rigged the contest. But if you do, that's okay. You may go ahead and believe that I'm a sneak if it makes you feel better about not winning.

As for the pictures: it's raining. So I thought I would do some indoor pics. This is the skirt I contemplated hemming here. Due to your advice I did not. And I am so glad now that I did not!!

I took the pics in front of my couch because crazily enough I haven't one blank wall in my house despite all my paintings currently living on the floor (desperately waiting to be hung mind you, calling to me everyday: "KIMBERELLIE HANG US ON THE WALLS!!! We don't like the floors! It's cold and lonely down here! We want to be hung and admired. ADMIRE US!". But I still haven't decided where to put them. So they can complain all they want. I'm not going to make unnecessary holes in the walls. They'll just have to wait.

I thought I would end with another pic of me laying down. This is my attempt at making everyone who visits here feel relaxed. It's sort of a subconscious psychoanalytical voodoo that should, if done right, influence your id and classically condition you to visit Kimberellie whenever you are tired and stressed out. Of course if you are never tired and stressed out and are actually too happy and relaxed my plan will backfire. So here's hoping you're having an awful day.
