February Foto Challenge 7 & 8

I have no doubt in my mind whatsoever that you've been thinking to yourself, "But Robyn, where are your latest February Photo Challenge pictures?  Have you given up already?  Did the lens of your camera crack in half after being exposed to the horror of your undercooked pizza concoction?"  To which I reply, "Right here!  And not yet.  And why don't you shut up?"

I didn't post my photo for Prompt #7 yesterday because I didn't get around to it, due to the fact that I'm a super-busy lazy person.  But here it is.

7.  Button*

That's my remote control.  It's slathered all over in buttons, though I don't know what most of them do.  I took a picture of it because, much to my continued surprise, I haven't been turning on the television during the day lately.  Granted, this is no great accomplishment considering all the face time my computer screen gets, but I believe the remote control misses me.  See how lonely?

On a related note, I'd like to send my apologies to HGTV which, due to my distractions on the innerwebs, has not realized the ratings spike it expected when it heard I was going to become a stay at home mom again.   I hope you've somehow managed to remain on the air without my viewership.  Please send my regards to Candice Olson.  Is she still putting crystal chandeliers in every room she designs?  That's okay, I like her anyway.


8. Sun

There are perpetually power lines in my sky photos.  Such is life in the 'burbs.  I do not, however, know why it looks like the power lines are emanating directly from the sun's core in this particular photo.  I don't claim to understand how electricity works, but this does seem like the most direct way to harness solar energy.












* I also took this Button photo:

It's a screen shot of my new Top Mommy Blogs button, which I include here in an unveiled act of self-promotion.  I recently was accepted at Top Mommy Blogs, and if you're at the Hollow Tree you can find my snazzy Vote For Me button on the right sidebar.  You can vote by clicking on it once per day, and in doing so will inch me closer to my ultimate goal of world domination.  Then everyone wins!  (But mostly me.)



I hope you enjoyed yourself while you were here - and I hope you come back! Please share inappropriate giggles with me on Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook, or subscribe via email so you don't miss a thing - and so I don't get all lonely. I get extra-pathetic when I'm lonely.

  3. You guys are too kind! You wouldn't be terribly impressed with me keeping up with the challenge, though, if you saw the resulting child neglect. "Yes, honey, I can see that you're bleeding profusely in that little spot where the bone is sticking out of your leg, but please move out of Mommy's light - you're casting a shadow on the remote control." (note to Child Protective Services: I'M KIDDING! There wasn't that much bleeding.)
