Went home for Christmas. I love home. I'm going to start making more trips to Blue. We wormed the horses today and I went for a nice long walk with my camera. I even saw a big snake.

Soup and Poker

Thanks everyone for coming to my soup n poker party. A good time was had by all! The soups were extra yum - even if half the party opted for the creamy tomato instead of the clam chowder i slaved over all day. Mmmm... I have lots of left over soup.

My plan is to become a poker super star. If anyone wants to sponser an up and coming player please let me know. I look great in sunglasses and I can bluff with the best of them. They're gonna call me Mary "all in" Sledd.

Babies and Telephones

Photographed another family for holiday cards today. (even though it is very close to christmas)The baby was only 7 weeks old and the mom looked FANTASTIC. The baby is yawning in this photo, but it sort of looks like he's hollering.

Ever gotten stuck in a phone tree? This site has an amazing collection of customer service numbers and the back doors to talk to a real human.

Gallery News

Last night at a party at the Artist Studio Studio I met a guy who is putting together some gallery shows and asked if I'd like to hang some work in them. (Nothing beats sight-un-seen gallery representation) The location I'm most excited about is Spider House. Its been a long standing goal (since high school) to show my photos at that coffee shop. Granted it may seem like an odd venue choice for me at this point it is going to be radical. Not sure what work I'm going to show - but I'll create something spectacular and I expect all of y'all to come to the opening. Gosh I hope he actually calls... : ) Isn't that guy in Voxtrot?

Alpha Sigma Sigma

Just wanted to let everyone know Alpha Sigma Sigma is closing its doors forever and is having one last party... here's the scoop.

"Saturday, December 17th @ Art Studio Studios, party o'clock. This is the last bender that will ever be held at the warehouse, as we have to move out at the end of the month to make room for the bulldozers. But don't cry, unless that's just a little "party" in your eyes.

We're at the corner of Jessie St. and Butler Rd. One block north of Barton Springs, and one block west of Lamar. You've been here before, you know this stuff.

So, bring your friends, bring some booze, and have sex in the secret bathroom. Whatever. A.S.S. doesn't give a fuck. Go nuts." - Rush Captian '04-'05, Sterling Allen

I found this picture of my dad while I was going thru my old stuff. So strange the things we save. Most of the stuff in the trunk was junk so I threw it away - but I'm going to keep this old photo. I sure was a sleepy baby.

Its very cold in Austin today so I've hulled myself in my house and I'm not going out. Out of bordom I got a subscription to Rhapsody. Its AWESOME! I should have gotten one ages ago.
