Eleven-eleven (a few days late)

I was fortunate enough to have off from work on Friday in observance of Veteran’s Day, and what better way to celebrate a day off then by starting it watching Spice World in bed? Full disclosure, that movie is still amazing, and might, in fact, like a fine wine, have gotten more amazing with age. Have you forgotten just how amazing? Allow me to remind you:

Do you know how long I struggled trying to decide whether to use that clip or the alien-encounter scene in the forrest? I ought to be embarrassed, but I’m not. I’m pretty sure at least two of my friends can count on getting a copy of that movie on DVD for Christmas.

The rest of my Friday was deliciously low-key, but I made sure to follow my mom’s suggestion and, to commemorate the once-every-100-year-occurrence of 11/11/11,  take a picture at 11:11am and 11:11pm (as you’ve probably gathered by now). Although, when you start your day off as lazily as I did, making it to 11pm was no small feat. My eyes were drooping by 9:45, so I tried to bribe myself to stay awake by eating a chocolate bar, having a glass of almost-flat Prosecco, and reading my favorite magazine (it’s unfortunate that the no-talent Scar-Jo was on the cover). But then, of course thanks to the trace amounts of caffeine in the chocolate, I was wide-awake until 2am watching a marathon of House Hunters International.

Anyway, the weekend went by way too quickly, even for a 3-dayer, but picking up my camera on Friday got me back into the habit of carrying it around with me wherever I go, just in case. So here are 3 extra pictures from the weekend for your viewing pleasure. Some good fall colors and the last farmer’s market in the neighborhood until next year.

How was your weekend? Do anything fun to celebrate 11/11/11? I’d love to know!

  • Great shots! Serioulsy! Oh, and thanks for listening….it paid off!

  • Oh, two more things…you should ALWAYS have a camera with your eye and you should always listen to your mother!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • I’m taking it that by the 13 exclamation points you are very serious about this. :) Thanks for the suggestion to take 11/11 pictures in the first place!

  • I can’t actually believe I clicked on that Spice Girls link and watched that clip! What’s wrong with me? Posh isn’t half the woman she was then. She looks like a completely different person, i.e. normal.

    I like the photo of the leaves – which my autocorrect just changed to ‘elves’ (?) maybe a photo of elves would have been better?

    I got a bit confused about the whole 11.11.11 thing as 11.00.11 is remembrance day over here and we have to have a minute’s silence (or we get horsewhipped) and I didn’t realise 11.11.11 was something different until it had passed. doh.

    ps glad you’re back, I’ve missed you!

    • Oh, who are you kidding, you loved every second of that clip :)

      11.11.11 has no real significance other than the numbers, haha. But you’re right, a picture of elves probably would have been way better.
