The Great Insane Paris Project

I must be crazy. I got a wild idea that it would be really cool to upload all my pictures from my Paris trip last year into Flickr and then make a QOOP mini flip book out of them. (Minibooks are so cute! I am in love with them! So handy! They fit in your purse! Memories in your pocket! Woo Hoo!) Why did I think I could do this when I don’t remember any of the names of the places AND I can’t spell AND I don’t speak French? I’m nuts. Not to mention I have a baby and I only get three 1.5 hour breaks a day that I should be using to vacuum and do dishes and scrub crusty food off the highchair. Oh yeah, I have some freelance clients who need some work done too. Why am I so dumb?

Be a superdoll and do me a favor if you are bored at work and you happen to be a smartypants Francophile who knows the names of all these places and such. Leave me notes in the flickr comments and I’ll be your best friend forever. Really. Maybe I’ll send you something from my Paris shop. Or don’t. No biggy. It’s not like there’s a deadline for me to get this new wacky crazy project done. It’s not like I don’t already have a zillion projects half done waiting for me to finish. One more won’t hurt. OR… leave me the wrong names and mess with my head! Yeah, that’s even better!

And since we’re just posting by the seat of our pants, here’s some random questions for the internet:

1. Do you like lots of hurried half hazard posts (like this one) without relevant pictures and movies or fewer posts but with better content and care?

2. Does anybody know anything about jogger strollers and which ones are better? I keep hearing that they are so big and a big old pain because they don’t steer properly. I’m thinking of buying a used one (because in my dreams I am the hot mama who runs every morning… more on that later).

Okay enough from me. Must go drink coffee before the baby wakes up. Must get rainbow connection song out of my head! I’m singing it so much it’s making me sick!

p.s. I’m not even done uploading Paris photos….there are so MANY!!!!!

The Paris Postcard is Ready for Press!

Now that it’s officially 2006… I finished the Paris 2005 Postcard!!!! Can you believe it!?? (Me neither!)

Remember how I promised to send every one a special SAJ in Paris postcard and you even all signed up on my official SAJ mailing list? Well, I thought I was going to let you down too. I thought with this pregnancy roller coaster all my good intentions were down the drain. I had almost even forgiven myself for being such a flake.

What I didn’t count on was that I would be bored out of my skull during the last two weeks of the crazy pregnancy roller coaster. I didn’t know our cable box was going to be fried and I wouldn’t be able to watch television. I also didn’t know our power was going to go out during a storm today and in a last ditch effort to entertain myself before I started chewing my own arm off, I would launch into an old project and FINISH THE PARIS POSTCARD! Wooooooo! Hooooooo! Yay for boredom! It gets things done.

The plan is to print these this week and have them into the mail by Friday. And if for some reason I go into the hospital before Friday, well, then maybe they’ll double up as birth announcements.

And yes, if for some reason you never did sign up to be on my mailing list, you can email me and still get on it. As long as there aren’t 700 of you. Make sure you get an email back from me confirming though because sometimes the spam-bots high jack your emails and I never get them.
