so it turns out that when you reach 200 photos on flickr, you would need to upgrade your membership for like $30/yr. i know it's not that bad but i was so bummed out when i got the notification. c'mon i've been a member since 2003 and i was finally starting to get the hang of it. anyway, i downloaded picasa by google which is very much like flickr. easy to share your photos like this slideshow. our first family zoo trip. awww. you can also tag and comment on the photos.

my own magic bus.

i still want my vw microbus like my old orange and white schoolbus in elementary. i could use it right now... my dream backyard will have a microbus - "the microbus". doesn't have to be in driving condition as long as the exterior is good and there are no leaks. of course i will do all the paint job and i will redo the interior. remove the seats except the long one and do that in a sideway position and of course leave the driver seat. that will be sophie's throne. reupholster the rest of the seats with an outdoor, waterproof material and leave that out for j while he's bbqing. install an awning on the main entrance and put some steps for max. of course max will have a little spot inside too (by that time, i hope to have finished his bed). i have my bird feeder and 2 orchids already. i just need a mint plant and a lemon tree because i plan to stock up on tequilla.

on my work this morning, i saw the cutest little hydrant on greenvale road. didn't have my cam of course. i hate that. it was about 1 ft tall.
since when did i get so into hydrants? highschool, on my first real enlightening retreat. i think i was 13 or 14 years old. one of the activity was identifying yourself as an object or i guess objectifying yourself and why. i picked a fire extiguisher. it's bright and red but goes unnoticed sometimes. i have my own agenda and i am required - important. unusally encased in a glass box like my own little world but very observant. i am always there in case of emergency. "i am always there, just there." that was my favorite part.
wow highschool life is crazy. i would've picked a fire hydrant but i don't remember seeing any in manila. but yeah i guess that's when my obssession began.
