Miscellaneous Monday

(yeah, I know, i'm not posting this until Tuesday... i've been busy)

- I've booked for WPPI! I'm so excited to be going for my first time ever! If anyone wants to meet up, email me and we can exchange info!

- I'm terribly sad that I am losing my garage to my husband again. My husband has the newest car, so he won the fight for the garage (ie the 'i don't have to get into my freezing car in the am or deal with thick frost making seeing impossible' car storage area). A few of weeks ago, his car basically imploded from a defective lifter spring (I don't really know what that is, but I recognize that it breaking was BAD). Luckily, his car was still under warranty, so Toyota is paying to fix it... but they have had it for a while. In the meantime, I stole the garage. And I will miss it...

- Finally, I HAVE to comment on the UCLA-Washington game this weekend. While I am admittedly biased (being a UCLA grad and all), I thought that was one of the worst officiated games ever. Letting someone shoot for a non-shooting foul, allowing Washington players to use Kevin Love as monkey bars (there was one play where a Husky was LITERALLY hanging off Love's elbows - BUT NO FOUL!) was bad enough. But the officials' failure to do anything when an inbounding player, who was being stifled defensively with 30 seconds left and the score within 5, reared back and chucked the ball at a UCLA player's face was TOTALLY uncalled for. Worst piece of officiating ever. I don't care if you have to get the ball in, you don't throw it point-blank at someone's face. Their foot, their arm, maybe even their chest, all ok. But not their face. And the official who just let it slide - didn't even SAY ANYTHING to the offending player.... just ridiculous. Ridiculous.

- Coming this week: Exciting developments! I took pics of another photog and her fiancee on Saturday - can't wait to post them! I have also started developing my latest photography 'passion project' and have found another photog that I will be shooting several events with this summer. Good times!
