now pose! pose! pose!

Bash tricked me into going with him on a day-long photoshoot in the murderous sun of jiyeh.
it was a looong fashion shoot with 6 models. however it was somewhat beneficial:
  • i learned female models have smaller boobs than mine (just when you thought it was physically impossible)
  • male models sometimes wear women's jeans size 38 hence am not fat
  • i want to become an art director when i grow up
  • people in the fashion work start drinking vodka at 11 am
  • i want to become an art director when i grow up
so i spent some time sketching the shiny happy people...

it was an overall stylish day where i felt cool-chic, trendy, fashionable and oh so perfect.

well almost...

it's finally monday!!!

the Panel of International Judges has convened in the Super-Secret Undisclosed location. and i have no time to report in detail about the selection process because the "fete de la musique 2010" has already begun and the free concerts await me. and because it's a confidential process.
so without further ado, the top 5!! (with their scores over 10)
  • wonderful terribleness of laughter & innocence-----6
  • i can see clearly now, the rain has gone---------------6
  • what is my price?----------------------------------------8.5
  • Too Sexy for Ma Skirt-----------------------------------8.5

and the winner, by decision of the Panel of International Judges (that has convened in the Super-Secret Undisclosed location) is.....
  • "how to change a light bulb" for dummies---------9

congratulations Avo, you win this designer gift presented to you by the P.o.I.J. (please contact the blog administrator for instructions on where to pick it up etc)

The rest of the answers were all so really interesting and inspiring and i am proud of all of you. (yes this is extra encouragement to lift your spirits)

no caption
sometimes around midnight things don't make sense...

ok am too ... erm... what's my excuse again? well whatever who cares... point is, can you come up with a caption for this? something to make it seem like it's actually saying something?
what? what do you get in return? euuuh... well come up with a caption and we'll see...

totally unrelated, my awesome friend Bach (with whom i made a deal) sent me this awesome song. check it out... but i warn you: no matter how tempted you are, lyrics from this song can in no way be used as captions for the above picture!

and may the greatness of bunnies and other fluffiness envelop you tonight.

workplace ethics

in the spirit of love and bunnies and cherry cheesecake power... conflict resolution at work... a little motivational poster

take a deep breath, things aren't as bad as you think they are.

no it's not an invitation. no nothing happened. you don't have to take it literally... it's just a saying like "try effective communication" or "don't turn your misconceptions to preconceptions" and "there is no i in teamwork"...etc

although... in terms of effectiveness... *wink wink*

may world peace be upon you tonight
