Me pink

It's gonna be a photo-full kind of day.

OK, so I got two *more* rolls of film back today, on top of the one that I never uploaded yesterday. There are gonna be lots of pictures, and that's all there is to it. I *will* break it up into three posts, though.

The first roll:

* Impossible to see. Sorry.
** Also very hard to see.

Saturday Photos: The Second Installment

This roll is just plain ridiculous. I should let the pictures speak for themselves:

* My absolute *favorite* Indian restaurant in the Pittsburgh area. I'd not been able to find anyone to go there with me since Douchetruck and I broke up, and I was miles beyond delighted to go there again.
** OK, these require an explanation. The simple story is that he found these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle overalls in the donation pile in the parking lot and simply *had* to try them on. Funny enough, right? Well, I showed these pictures to lilostitch who declared that *SHE* was the one who donated the overalls (something she wore as a gag for a law school exam) and that she wanted them to go to a woman or child living in a shelter, *not* Sprout. And yes, these are my favorite pictures of Sprout *ever*.
*** As my friend Jayne used to say.
Ducks!!!

Saturday Pictures: The Final Installment

Ah, ducks. Y'all know about my great affection for the Highland Park duck pond. This is the roll of film I wrote about in this post, when I took a box of crackers and an entire roll of film with me to visit the ducks.

The pictures:

* B'Nai Israel actually doesn't exist anymore. About five years ago -- probably longer, actually*** -- they closed for business, merged with another Synagogue that was closing, and formed Adat Shalom out in the suburbs. But my maternal Great and Great Great Grandparents were among the founders of B'Nai Israel, so it always holds a place in my heart. The end of the story is that the building is now used for the Urban League Charter School of Pittsburgh, which is good because it means the building still serves a noble purpose, and (hopefully) won't fall into disrepair like so many of the other former Synagogues in that neighborhood.
** OK, I realize they're really hard to see. I never even realized there *were* little fish in the pond until they started jumping out of the water and eating the cracker crumbs.


***ETA:
OK, a lot longer than five years ago -- this site says 1993, although I'm pretty sure I was living in Pittsburgh when they closed, so that would've had to've been post-1996 ...
