With all the shootings and muggings, it is starting to feel a little bit like Gotham City in midtown. Maybe I'm just freaked out by this giant inflatable Santa. Evil stooges are about to pop out with Uzis. We went to Hot Italian to celebrate Matthew's real birthday

It's always so much better than I would think.
Sadly, it was too cold for gelato.

My Saturday

As most of the working world is heading back to their work on Monday, I finally get my 'Saturday.'
Weird Nativity scene in the Cheap Thrills window

Never noticed this gem
My computer is doing very strange things when I download pictures from the camera.

Rough day

Holidays mean busy times at work. I had a quiet evening at home with this
An exploration of ugliness through visual art
Some of my favorites:

Francesco Mosso
Claude's Wife

George Grosz
The Writer

Egon Schiele
Young Woman Sitting

It's a great book with paintings that may have had "ugly" subjects, but are actually incredibly beautiful.

Bleak Friday

We went to Arden Fair Mall at midnight, just to see the madness up close. We thought it would be funny. I personally hate to shop, so Black Friday always seemed like my worst nightmare. It was an experience.

Seeing the mall more packed than I have ever seen it and the fact that it was 1 am was tripping me out. It was freezing/roasting and I was sleepy. We drove by target at 4 and immediately gave up on that idea after seeing a line going down the block.
Went to bed for a few hours and then went to work at 10am. It was rough

I had to work and families were too far so I had a little Thanksgiving with the boy. He made duck. He is fabulous.
We also watched The Road (my new Thanksgiving tradition) and really bummed ourselves out.

the devil's playground

Went to Roseville. I had the idea of going to H & M in my head.
Nice job Michaels, I think you missed some letters. Cool blurry photos brought to you by Gabriel Nokes

Later on that night
The Matts

Sunday Morning walk

Nothing feels nicer than a solo Sunday walk in the fall.
