Photo Album: Sharpies, the Symphony, Kitty Ears, Cereal, a Selfie, Happy Milk, and Poutine A-plenty

I've decided to do occasional photographic roundup entries. I shoot inconsequential life stuff all week long, and, while the photos are usually awful, when I look back I can see that they are about all the small things that make up my life. It turns out that the photos I am most likely to throw into my Flickr account and forget are exactly the stuff I most like to look back on, because while I will remember the larger, more dramatic events, I forget the little pieces that make up the flavour of another time. I want to stop forgetting all these pieces, so here are a few of them to start.

I was eyeing a 12-pack of Sharpies for weeks at a local drugstore, and I finally gave in. How could I not? Secretly, although now not so secretly, I am going to start creating art offline this year, and I figured Sharpie markers would be a cheap, non-intimidating doorway into the process.

Sharpie markers FTW

My friend Sabrina and I went to see "The Merry Widow" with the Regina Symphony Orchestra. I dislike musical theatre 90% of the time, but I didn't hate this. In fact, I actually liked it. Although, my impression of the evening might be coloured by watching a drunk man hit on Sabrina afterwards. He delivered lines clumped together in drunken paragraphs, subtlety be damned. That was entertainment.

Onion and Oskar are both snugglers in the morning, and I never tire of squinting through Onion's ears at the morning light. All alarm clocks should be furry.

I was having a rough day yesterday, so I bought one of those over-priced mixed packs of single-serving cereal boxes so I could comfort nosh on a half-and-half mix of Corn Pops and Froot Loops. Sugar highs can occasionally fix electrical brain shorts.

Dramatic selfie, anyone?

Also, I have some absurdly happy milk in my kitchen right now.

In Regina, we have this place called The Coney Island Cafe, and they serve many kinds of poutine there. I ate the perogie poutine and was absolved of all bad feelings. Perogie poutine is the priest of poutines.

Aaaaand done! Photo album blog entries are my new jam.
