12 of 12

So I'm doing my ninth 12 of 12. 12 pictures taken on the 12th of the month. Since I only post once per day, you get my images the following day. All pictures taken with my iPhone.

Created by Chad Darnell (thanks Chad!) and picked up from, what I can tell, a number of random bloggers who then link back to him and vice versa. He intends 2010 to be his final year of doing this, but hopefully someone will pick it up from there. Time will tell.

07:10. Outside my office building. I actually went outside to take the picture. The parking garage is attached to my office, so I really don't have to go out in the elements, but I needed a morning pic - didn't I?

07:15. The frickin' elevators were out. I had to take the service ones. I'm not an operator, but I'm I was in the elevator anyways...permitted or not.

10:00. Out a co-worker's window. You can see part of the Federal Reserve on the left, going into the Cleveland Public Liberry. Then the taller buildings are the former BP Building, beyond that Terminal Tower and beyond that the new-ish Federal Courthouse.

11:20. Resusci Anne's head. Just "her" head. The plastic wrap made me immediately think of Laura Palmer.

12:05. Out for lunch #1. What border? Summit to Cuyahoga Counties? Are there a lot of illegals coming to Cleveland for our already 10% unemployment?

12:15. Out for lunch #2. I am so fucked if this is true!

13:05. What little of what is left of my honey dijon chicken salad. No fears - I finished it.

17:45. Casual Friday. Tshirt, jeans and tennis shoes today. And Mickey ears. Ok, I didn't wear them all day, just for the pic. I got the ears at my work-thingy earlier this week. Disney is a client - not of mine, but they were there presenting. I totally look heinous.

18:11. Not overly thrilled with satellite radio. 1,893 stations. 1,882 of them suck. Now and again you get a great song like this one. Who doesn't love 'Hairdresser of Fire'?

18:30. Dive Bar. I only went to see my friend Josh guest tend bar. He was doing it for Adoption Network. Josh is adopted. He is from Columbia (the country, not University). His parents are Jewish. I love that he's a Columbian-American-Jew. I went for one beer and to donate/tip $20 for the network. It was dark good image.

19:20. Luggage. It was never put away from my trip. I'm on the way out of town again. Actually, I leave so often, the suitcase rarely goes into storage. Oh - and we have hideous carpet in the dressing room. We'll have to change that out...soon.

21:30. Sophie. I mean, I gotta have one of her.

The mouse ears thingy really fits your head nicely. Were you a member of the club when you were younger? Or now?

Aw, the last shot made me smile. Are those Denton's feet?

Birdie said...

The mysterious Denton appears!

Love the ears. And you are really working the beard. Very nice. Will it stay?

Sophie's a sweetie, but that angle was not at all flattering. She knows it, too. Look at her expression.

I was thinking maybe you took a road trip to Niagara Falls when I saw the Border Patrol vehicle... I work up there are they are EVERYWHERE. I wouldn't have expected them in Ohio.

Thanks for your nice comment on my 12, too. :)

Love looking at your 12 of 12 but it makes me just a little home sick. I went to CSU for a while and took the rapid every day to the Terminal Tower and walked to the school. I had a friend that worked for BP when it was still the BP building. Thanks for sharing your day!

The guest tending bar for the Adoption Network is a fantastic idea! And mmm, the salad looks good. Might have to get some salad stuff, next time I go shopping...

Sorry I'm late commenting - I wanted to wait until I'd got my own 12 of 12 up.
