What comes to mind...

1. Identify the first word that comes to mind when you think of me.

2. Go to Google Image Search and search for that word.

3. Reply to this post with one of the pictures on the first page of results. Don't tell me the word.

4. Put this in your own journal so that I can do the same.

Feeling much refreshed versus last night, let me catch up by posting about the trip Caleb and I made to Savannah.

Savannah Pictures, Part 1

Historic Savannah
Here are shots I took over the weekend in Savannah. I took many more shots, since I was helping Caleb by getting pictures he uses for his work, illustrating various housing types, entranceways, etc., but these are the prettiest shots and the ones that give the best feel for the beauty of the city

Color me conked out

Yow! Just woke up after conking out around 5:15. I am pretty sure I'm experiencing one of Lexapro's side effects. Prior to going on it, I would never ever take a nap unless I was sick, but now I seem to crash out mid-afternoon a couple of times a week. I'll just be sitting at my desk and think, "Man, forget it," walk to the bed, toss myself on it, and wake up an hour later. I guess this is why there's a warning label on that stuff saying to be careful operating heavy machinery.

Not that this napping really bothers me. I could use more sleep and if I'm sleepy my work would suck anyway. And then there's the fact the medication does seem to be working, since I feel a heck of a lot better and more functional. (As always, *knock on wood*.)

Movie post -- Wendy and Caleb frolic

While we were out at Tybee Island splashing around in the surf Saturday evening, Caleb and I made a couple little movies. These are in AVI format, which for me plays in Windows Media Player. Obviously since they are movies they're a couple MB each.

Ever since I woke up from my nap, I've been feeling out of it. For the past hour I've felt like I'm having another one of those dizzy spells. I'm not dizzy per se, but I feel that same sort of weakness and some nausea. Also I keep being so hungry, even though I've fixed myself food a few times thinking it would help. Just took some aspirin for my head. Maybe I'll have a strong cup of boillion -- it's what my mom always prescribed for this type of feeling. Either salt or sugar usually does the trick, for some strange reason, and since I don't seem to have any candy in the house...

OK, now I *am* dizzy. Just had that "rolling" feeling where you feeling like you're flipping over backwards inside your head. Does anybody know what I'm talking about?

What the...?

I found this blog called Dear George: Letters to the President that's all open letters to Dubya. What makes it interesting are the letters from his supporters, which offer some answers to the "What the hell are they THINKING?" question.

As an example, this letter:

Dear Mr. President,

It was abundantly obvious at your conference that most of the journalists can only parrot the liberal bias against you. The responses you gave were way too intelligent for them to comprehend. They just can't relate to someone whose life is motivated by a faith that requires honesty and fairness for all of humanity.

Keep up the good work. Our prayers are with you.


Fort Worth, TX

I really wish this guy was being sarcastic, but he's from Texas and I don't think they do sarcasm there.
