i feel silly doing this, but i figured learning something knew about me might be fun.
you see, i was "tagged" by someone else and in this game i am supposed to post different things about me that are interesting.
so here ya go...
1) i have a birthmark shaped like a rubber ducky on my forearm.
2) i am an only child. (my parents took in my cousin who lived with us for 8 years, i was two when he came into our home...my parents split up, and so did the foursome family...and then my dad later remarried and i had two step-sisters....and then that ended...) everybody's got their story.
i figured starting my own family would be the best stability in a long time....and i couldn't be more happy.
3) i still like 2nd grade potty humor.
4) i am OCD about how a note on a post-it needs to appear.
5) my wife had open heart surgery at the age of 26. we had an 11 month old baby at the time. this all happened within a weeks time. (aortic valve replacement.) ...to learn more of the story see my fine art section on the blog, title "birth story of ava.."
6) my mother passed away when i was 16. we later honored her by naming our first daughter after her, Alanna.
7) we named our wiener dog "faith" after our first wiener dog, belle, at 2 years old became paralyzed in a matter of 3 days because of a bad spine....we had "faith" that neither we, nor the second wiener dog, would have to experience such pain again. i ended up photographing the last days of my dogs life and it was by far the most emtional and stirring documentary i have ever done. (perhaps i'll have to post more about this at some time).
8) i want to go helli-snowboarding some day.
9) i am addicted to miami and la ink. (nope, no tattoos) i find it fascinating to watch. to hear what motivates someone to get a tattoo, the story behind it, and what they choose as a permanent visual symbol to put on their body. and then to see how well the tattoo artist can interpret and execute their ideas. sometimes it's a flop, and other times it is absolutely beautiful.
10) ....how'bout a joke?
why is 6 afraid of 7?...because 7,8,9!
and there you have it! everyone that i'd tag has already been tagged.
stuck in the mud.
