12 of 12: July 07   

It is 12 of 12 time!

12 of 12 for July 2007

8:13 – My Street
Oops, I forgot it was garbage day. Good thing my neighbors already put out the house trash bin.

8:35 – Krispy Kreme by UCF
I was running late so I didn’t eat breakfast. I saw that the Krispy Kreme “HOT” sign was on. Is there a better excuse to get donuts for the office? I think not.

10:09 – My Office
Today my Origami calendar is taking a day off so I get to learn its sister art of Kirigami instead. Pretty.

I take a break to let the M&Ms Rubik’s cube frustrate me and (seen in the background) to catch up on the BB live feeds and my online reading list.

12:45 – Co-Worker’s Office
We had an impromptu potluck lunch. S’s contribution was meatloaf and various other side dishes from Boston Market.

1:01 – Conference Room
I’m ready for my 1PM meeting. Pay no attention to my doodles and “notes” from our previous meeting with this client.

3:30-ish – Looking Out My Office Window
Our daily afternoon storm was a little early and brought with it scary lightening. It got so dark out that the street lights came on.

5:57 – Gay!Publix
I stop by my grocery store or as it is more commonly known in Orlando, Gay!Publix, to get supplies for dinner.

7:24 – My Backyard
One of the spectacular yellow daisies on the “Mexican Tree Marigold” plant in my backyard.

7:26 – My Backyard
I went to use the hose and scared this little guy out of his hiding spot.

7:38 – My Kitchen
Chicken… it’s what’s for dinner! I baste the honey teriaki chicken breasts I’m baking one last time.

8:54 – My Living Room
The Big Brother 8 HOH competition is under way and I was transcribing it for the folks over at TV Clubhouse.


Inspirational Word: HOT
Given how hot it was yesterday, I should have a better picture but I kinda forgot about the bonus word. Luckily I had taken a picture of the fan I got at the ABC Red Carpet Screening last Friday. I suddenly have the urge to watch ABC this fall. I wonder why?

    Well, I can never argue with a day that includes Krispy Kreme, or a nice afternoon thunderstorm.

    Nice pictures!

    Wait, there’s a Krispy Kreme by UCF now?

    Damn, I went to the school too early.

    There is! I was going to say it’s fairly new but I don’t think it is… it just feels like it is to me. The stuff on University now is INSANE.

    Krispy Kreme in the morning and Boston Market in the afternoon. That’s a great day. And I’m sure your chicken was excellent, too!

    That’s funny in Atlanta we have a Gay Kroger! We also have a Disco Kroger, a Baby Kroger and a Crack Kroger.

    Great shots

    These are awesome. Do you mind if I ask why they call your Publix grocery store the “gay!Publix?” :x Is it in a particular section of town or…?

  14. 14
    raelee says:

    Well some of it is the section of town. A large portion of our gay residents love and live in the downtown area. That Publix just so happens to be the one that is accessible by a large majority of downtown dwellers. So, that is what led to the name but, specifically, it’s because a notably large number of gay people work and shop there.

    How do you like BB this season?

    raelee says:

    Heh. Thanks. The Krispy Kreme part is definitely true. And my chicken was better the second and third days I had it. ;)

    raelee says:

    Heh. Ok, what the hell is DISCO Kroger??

    raelee says:

    Thanks! The lizards don’t freak me out anymore but I do still scream when I accidently get in the path of the many frogs who live around my place.

    Thanks, Chad!

    Eh, you know I can’t believe I’m going to say this but it’s gotten much better with Jen as HOH. It was a little boring the first week and a half but things have picked up a bit. I guess I just don’t have any favorites yet. Maybe I’ll be back to my BB obsessed self once I do.
