today was an unhealthy day. Picnic at the park with cheese and potato chips and then Rita’s custard and gelato, then a Krispy Kreme doughnut. This happened to be Nyla’s first ever Krispy Kreme. The good and bad news is that she didn’t like it (good because it is so easy to get addicted to those things, bad because she may have a malfunctioning tongue to not like Krispy Kreme…). Actually, she didn’t like it because it was hot and sticky. This is her trying to cool it down before she eats it – she has sooo much to learn…

the lights out at 9pm thing at the Coke office is starting to get old pretty quickly. I anticipated the lights going out tonight and set up camp in a meeting room with light switches figuring the switch would overrule the timer – well, it didn’t. Oh well. As I left I saw this desk – where no one was sitting – with one single desk lamp on but it felt crazy bright due to the darkness of the rest of the office.

we spent the day in the meeting room at the World of Coca-Cola. We were plotting. It was a long day but a good day. And then we left and I went by to say hi to our old friend, the inventor of Coca-Cola, John Pemberton. He is still right there in Atlanta offering us all a Coca-Cola like it was 1886. John, I owe you one.

there are so many burger places in Atlanta now that the once popular Vortex just doesn’t seem to have it anymore. But it still does have the most impressive entrance. So after eating there before our big soccer game (that the American way) we decided to shoot it. It is funny how empty the streets of Atlanta become post 8pm, when only 2 hours earlier they are slammed…

sometimes I just don’t have the time or the motivation to take a shot. Today is definitely one of those days. But hey, I guess I am being creative by taking a screenshot of my computer which could of course be classified as a photo in this digital age. So be it – number 269/365.

the crib is kind of like a baby prison. That is why I like it and why I am hesitant to get Nyla her big girl bed. Once she gets in her prison, she can’t get out. And as I put her to bed tonight I decided to take today’s picture with her and her jail cell – and it didn’t take her long to figure out what was going on and take on the role perfectly.

267/365 eighties

today we went to a friend’s 40th birthday party and the theme was 80s. I put no thought into it until one hour before we had to go and picked up everything with bright colors and weird patterns – including my killer 80s Miami Dolphins spandex Zubaz shorts and my fro with pick and all. Picked up some killer vintage Nikes too. Toshimi also went for the closet scavenger hunt look but put it together pretty nicely, with belly and all. The Dolphins shorts were a hit, but we were considerably outdone by the birthday boy, his wife, and many of their friends including one who came as Jane Fonda with the one piece leotard. Awesome. I was handicapped though – I didn’t really live through the 80s at and age where I could pick out my own fashion – I blame all my fashion mishaps from that decade on my Mom and Dad who were responsible for dressing me.
