Good news, everyone!
I finally latched onto a partner in crime, an accomplice, a conspirator colleague... a picture-taker. Honestly, in this sorta biz, the role really does play like an accomplice. And without her, I wouldn't have been able to have so many good pictures of me blending inconspicuously into the brick wall. Thanks, Pink!
Here she is in her natural habitat. Oh wait; since we're both partners in crime, we should have proper disguises...
THERE we go! Now no one will ever know us now that we're Stefan Albus Potter and Monocle McGee McGonagall.
"Pink, like the singer?" Yes, it's her real name. Well. Not technically. LONG STORY SHORT, people call her Pink, 'cause that's what they call her. Either way, I'm grateful for her help. :) I was self-conscious at first, since I was used to back-and-forth routine and posing for myself. But she made it easy and we ended up taking wayyyy more pictures than I had originally planned. Is this how it goes for you guys, the ones who are fortunate enough to have photogs? Do y'all take a good amount of time getting it just right, or just a few snapshots to go?
Hey look, I'mma FASHION CHAMELEON.
I'M SO SPEEDY
LIKE A GAZELLE.
FUN FACT: This is actually the outfit that I'd originally planned for yesterday. The shirt is a Goodwill find (what can I say, my mom is a finder-fiend), and I liked the comfy-casual-chic vibe. Since it's so neutral brown, I paired it with my pair of tights to give it some color (I also just like brown+blue). By a stroke of wonderful randomness, I got complimented on them by a complete stranger. And like the eloquent idiot that I am, all I could do was stare a little and laugh and say "thank you!" I thought it was only proper that I should pass it forward... so I complimented the girl making my sandwich wrap on her wicked cat eye makeup. Who says a little flattery won't get you anywhere? :)
We may or may not have been "caught" by a passerby once. Uh, woops. It's for a ... project? Yeah, a project.

This truly has felt like one of the longest weeks of-- well, I wouldn't say my life, that's a bit drama-queen-over-the-top. But I would say that this was one of the longest weeks in this semester; at the end of the day, I feel like I'm dragging my dead weight of a body around. Which is why I'm so glad for this song.
Best Rube Goldberg, or best Rube Goldberg of all TIME? I especially lurve the rainbow flags at 1:55.
Not only is this music video pretty dang bitchtastic (yes, tastic of bitch), the song is actually a strangely calming medicine. It's a mantra to repeat over and over when I'm in moods like this: You know you can't keep lettin' it get you down you know you can't keep lettin'itgetyoudown...
Looks like photo-me is checkin' out the video. I can't blame photo-me, photo-me's got good taste.
What's Lovely for March 4, 2010: GO GO RED POWER RANGER.
I thought it was a myth, but I finally saw him with my own eyes. There have been rumors of a Red Power Ranger on my campus. I mean, he even had his own Twitter and Facebook account, so that MUST make him real, right? It was pure chance that I found him-- I was walking to my friend's dorm when there he was... just standing watch at the fountain. Like it was totally normal. I mean, come on. Everyone knows that the villains hang out at the Union, not the fountain, gosh.
MIGHTY MORPHIN' POWER MUTHAFUGGIN RANGERS
I wonder if he's as bamf as these guys, though.
