heads up! you only have a week to get your card [and possibly other things?!] for your boss! boss's day: 16 OCT!!

I got a nice card for my boss, cuz she's been a really awesome boss-person [especially if this is her first time being a boss-person, which it might be]. she's extremely flexible w/time, asks that we just do what we're asked to do and let her know of any problems and she'll take care of them. that, and she keeps asking me when I come in if I have gone to the gym that morning. GREAT motivation for keeping up this developing habit :D :D :D

and, of course, if you dont have an awesome boss, uh - there ARE some cards out there that share your feelings in a nicer way than you'd likely do if put on the spot. ;) that, or there's always monster.com ;)

--------
PS: to folks who've got me on your flists & haven't let me know who you are - please take the time to do so, so's I know. you're not gettin' all teh awesome things I have to say and share cuz you've not been added back. yet. ♥

Yes, I need to hunt for a Bosses Day card. I looked at a few the other day, but none of them were quite right!

I found mine at target - they had a pretty good selection last week when I went.

I think I'll give Llama exactly what he gave me for my birthday. And what he gave me for Administrative Assistant's Day. And the lovely gift he brought back from Las Vegas.

Nosebag...

Have you had a successful baking experiment with them?

From: [identity profile] sparklypoof.livejournal.com
I haven't had a moment to do any baking since our last exchange. but what 'm thinkin' might work just might work... I do need someone to help eat them, because I certainly don't want those delicious things sitting around being lonely.

hey there, poof of sparkliness!

i'll keep this as brief as i can, and i totally get that it might seem a bit sudden, this pink girl just zooming in from the nether-realms of the internet's various tangled wires: bursting with ideas for you to consider:
but to dive right in; first of all, we have all sorts of shiny & sweet things in common - and are both in alexandria! - which is absolutely lovely. if you didn't seem lovely in a way that makes me think we just-might connect, i wouldn't be writing/posting about this at all. this, being that --

i'm a photographer; mainly portraiture; and i'm working on sort of revamping my "portfolio" right now. new themes, lots of ethereal color & shimmer; the intense contrast & vivid shades, focus on angles & close-ups that i've always been drawn to, but with a focus on the actually ethereal. (which i've explored in a few sets, and my portraits often hint at, but i'm diving into a whole new realm this time.) fae, pixie, underwater, otherwordly, fantastical, etcetera. i'm writing because you, your shimmers, have me intrigued. the reason i said i wouldn't have posted if you didn't also seem lovely - as a person - is that i really believe portraits generally work best when connection is involved. i work with models creating together, not directing exactly, generally very mellow.

if you go back just a few entries in my own journal, you'll see an entry with a subject-line about rain & oceans. obviously, you don't know details about my years of work for my own website, for other sites, for individual people (etc. et alia) - but hopefully the post will make clear, albeit in a dreamy-shim-shimmery way, the concepts i'm heading towards/working with now. i have a myspace page; you can see at least a handful of my photos there, it's just myspace.com/robin_bird. [ an important aside: due to various life issues, primarily chronic illness & time spent offline, i haven't changed the myspace profile for many months, or been active on the site. which means that it talks a bit about the feminist erotica website that i adore(d), but am not running anymore, am moving forward from in a bunch of ways. just in case that throws you off; don't let it! i do enjoy working with sensuality & bodies, most of all when it has therapeutic value; but nudity is not necessary to the dreamworlds & concepts i'm focusing on now.]

i realize how *completely* random this may seem to you! since you do seem so lovely, so open-minded, i felt it would be okay to post this here. but, of course, it's also your right to be weirded out & not respond at all!

if you do, however, want to respond - perhaps to talk about this more specifically, to meet & play, to see more of my work in person; to explore photo-fey-worlds with your own modeling or otherwise - prettyplease be sure to post something here. as with myspace, i haven't been using email for awhile now - so at least a heads-up comment, if you want to talk, would be fabulous.

i hope this didn't weird you out too much, if at all. i entirely promise that i'm a small & pink, glittery & gentle creature! if anything, i hope you can maybe see the compliments inherent in the way you, in all your sparklypoofness, drew me to comment about all this.

take care; i'll hope to talk soon;
r-bird

hahah - this comment has totally made my morning :D

please do shoot me an email, 'm extremely curious to meet you IRL, especially since you are ridiculously close-by. [I too do not log onto myspace often, but 'm on there too...] sparklypoof at gmail dot com. :)

I am waresy of posting more things publicly, but if it garners amazing comments like this from apparently fantastic individuals, perhaps I should do so more often. n_n

hi again! just now, the above icon of dancing creatures (is that a haaamster?!!) made me do a little dance-in-my-seat. oooh, indeed, i am smiling!

i love the giddy back&forth that a sense of intuition, of shared ideas & creation; these along with a feeling of safety & softness; can bring. i love sending words across (this time, such short!) miles, with silly, bated breath. it's a swoony sort of magic; the kind i like best to dive right into. by which i mean, dive into the "real-life" heart of it all, within a day a month a moment, if possible. i think we're along more-or-less the same lines here, so this is me saying: yes! me too! i'm often ultra-picky about online folks, but when i feel a sort of path open to me, my instincts - the heightened senses of the empath in me - whirl me along that path quite deliciously. i'd love to talk, play, deviously-glitterfully plan in person, etc, etc. - when we're both able/as soon as you wish, really. what with me being all quirky & pink, all photo & faerie-obsessed & zooming into your reality so quickly, i don't expect you to follow the gingerbread trail of my intuition-glow. but hey, a girl can hope, yeah?! also, because of the zooming (so to speak) it may seem weird that i'm really not even doing email much right now. i can't seem to explain this quite right or succintly enough on my journal; although people who know about my history & journey with/through chronic illness, know a bit more background. basically, i treasure every drop of energy i have - and it's boundless inside - but my body doesn't allow me what "normal" people take for granted in countless arenas.

so far as that goes for communicating, where i am in my life at the same point i've stumbled over your most shimmeryness: i adore postcards, handmade stationary, mail-art & packages of all sorts. and i adore, whenever possible - whenever my energy or circumstance allows - the breathing-in & see-smell-smile of three-dimensional togetherness! which isn't to say i'll *refuse, grarrr!*, to email you - not at all, if your spark&poofiness needs that. only that, the more direct route is best for me, especially when i am able to dive into my dreams as we've only begun to touch upon! (particularly after a recent seven month absence, i've been experimenting & bending with the balance of the energy i have at any given time; the frustrating limitations of illness to my boundless, leaping, dreaming artists' heart & head! after being known for much of my life as anti-phone, i'm trying to embrace the two "extremes", so to speak; spending less time & energy online for the time-being. tempting as its' own worlds & countless interfoldings can be!)

i hope the philosophize-explaining bit of this didn't distract too much from my main point. from the adventure-giddy-possibles-to-come! what i'm getting at is, really, mostly: *the crinkle of handwritten mail, packages from miles away & tangible & *the actualities of voices on phone & most especially when possible, those voices, touch, peeeople... in... person! are where i'm trying to be more lately, expend most of my energy. there are lots of specifics you might have read cryptic bits about in my journal if you peeked at all, and it's hard to explain without going into real detail. i worry that i might come across as somehow defined by illness - rather than by my hope, by the view into ever-present bits of beauty. the electricity, the light-possible in dark in every tiniest, squirmiest, potential detail!) ---

---continued, because i really should be emailing! i need to find some middleground, and soon, methinks. but for now ---

okay. wow. the above was definitely a ramble! it's in a recent locked entry of mine, but i'll post my phone number to you & then delete it, so your email grabs it, but nobody else can snag it. it's awfully lovely that, for once, someone who glows as you do is so nearby also; and yes, i would very much like to show my full, active appreciation of that lovely truth! i want to respond a bit to what you posted in my own journal, but otherwise -

if i don't stop writing now, it's possible my poetryprose scramble-rambles will take over entirely, becoming impossible for you to decipher! i'm sorry; it's just so catching. like... a really fantastic flu virus! thos passing back&forth of ideas, of energy & glitter from one to another; the nearby location of an also hopeful soul; the hope itself. obviously this weekend is very, VERY soon - but nights are always good for me, though daylight/early eve is excellent for the photos i'll talk about just a bit when i respond to your post on my journal.

thanks so much for your effervescent response! i'm glad i made your morning; you made my day in turn, for sure.

"i believe people are see-through if you hold 'em up to the light. i believe people are enlightening if you plug 'em in right;
bird

p.s.: just recently, i finally found & lost myself in buffy. my sweetest girl has been obsessed with buffy's worlds for years, & i've been waiting to unfold them into my life - now i finally, totally, more & more/bit by bit understand. losing myself in such deep & precious stories; sometimes they truly heal me. i smiled when i saw you seemed to have an awfully special place for the buffyverse in your heart, too. ...rock on with the icons!
