milgram me

I had to go to court today. I really psyched myself out about going - "Do I have to say I'm guilty?" So I went and sat quietly, judging how other people presented themselves to him - were they respectful or whiny or casual or . . .? And tried to decide how to act.
I was submissive and courteous and just went along with everything that was said.

Have you heard of that experiment where they made people give electric shocks to someone? (go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milgram_experiment - I really need to learn how to insert links) And basically everyone obeyed authority instead of stopping, even when the voltage was enough to kill a person?

Yeah, that would be me. Killing someone with electric shock because my superior told me I had to.


It's amazing what getting a speeding ticket can make you think about.

Love You Madly

Today was the last day of Summer. And it really felt like it.
The air was cold and the sun went down too early.


This calls for a new jacket.

You Capture - Up Close

Here is my first try for the You Capture challenge! Forgive me for putting up so many pictures but I couldn't decide on a 'theme' for my macro experimentation, so they are just a bunch of random pictures!





I love macro, but that doesn't mean I'm good at it! So any helpful hints or comments would be great! ;)

To see everyone else's great ideas and photos, just go to I Should Be Folding Laundry and take a look around!

so yeah. i went to the fair.


Photobucket We had a crazy car drive over! (Not really, we just played with crocodiles and flies)

Photobucket Rocks are fun. Doesn't my nephew have pretty eyes?

Photobucket Jameson was so excited about all the birds we saw flying in a "V." I asked him if he knew why they do that, getting ready to explain it to him, but he already knew why! Smart kid!

Photobucket Eww! Look at the snot hanging from the sheep's nose!

the horses

Lately I have been going over to my Aunt's house to ride horses and hang out. I usually ride her (nice) horse Raine, and she'll ride either Angel (the white one) or Whisper (the black one). It's been so nice to be around horses again. I've been obsessed with horses since I was little, and when I was a teenager (I can actually say that now!) I used to take riding lessons. I haven't been able to ride much since I moved back to Utah, so finally being able to has been the BEST! I am so grateful that my busy busy aunt lets me come and play!


Photobucket "The Babies" - Levi on the left and River on the right. They have such fun little personalities -Levi is way laid back, and River is curious and a little . . . can we say princess-y? But seriously they are so adorable, they could cheer anyone up.

Photobucket Can you tell they're friends?
