Hollywood called…they want their camera back…

Holy Smokes ~ I have videotaped myself and no one died.  Well, I don’t think anyone died….no one TOLD me they died. Which would be REALLY hard to do.  Never mind.

ANYway, I was sitting in the “Student Center” of our local Community College while Tater is in “Math Thru Art” Camp (I’m not sure she’s convinced this is real camp just yet, but she’s 7 and I’m 51 and I feel pretty sure I can still trick her in going back for the next 3 sessions….).  They have a really, REALLY nice set up here ~ like so nice I’m thinking of coming back ‘just because’.  It’s quiet, there’s lots of tables with plug ins IN the table, internet available and REALLY nice comfortable chairs. Makes my dining room table look like a….dining room table.  Hrmph….imagine that.

I was on my laptop, and the little scrolling arrow was just scrolling all over the place and it landed on “Photo Booth”…..I don’t recall ever clicking Photo Booth so of course, I did today.

I was instantly looking at a picture of myself.  Scared the crap outta me.  I looked behind me to make sure no one was hovering over my shoulder, looking at me watching myself, cause THAT would have just been really, REALLY weird.  The good news is that since it’s Summer, there wasn’t ANYONE in the student center but ME.

Heeeeyyyy…ALONE time!

So I snapped a few pics of myself doing stupid things, (don’t even go there, they are already deleted!) and then I noticed a little movie projector icon.

Hmmm, a MOVIE?

Yep, a movie.

So, after only 18 tries, I had 23 seconds of what I considered a passing video of me trying to say hello.  You should have seen the first 17….geez.  You’d think I just discovered how to speak and complete sentences.

Here’s my 23 seconds of fame….I figured I needed to take it slow and easy and go in short bursts.  Maybe next time I’ll get up to 30 seconds, but no promises.

And as soon as I figure out how to post this on here without all those hieroglyphics, I will….but it’s not on my hot list of things to do 😉


Thanks for hanging out with me and reading (AND WATCHING!!!) what I toss out about my life….I’d love for you to share it, too ~ you know your mama always told you to share 🙂


  1. Accent? What accent? You sound just like most everybody I hang out with… down here in southwest Arkansas! Love the video… my daughter takes video of herself all the time on my laptop, a feat I’ve yet learned to master!!

    • Yep, I’m a Southerner and you know it when I open my mouth. And Tater is ALWAYS videoing on my phone, which I can do, but I never had figured out the laptop! Although the screen is MUCH bigger….not sure that’s a good thing! Ha, Cheers Girl!


  2. I always look forward to your emails in my inbox….I always get a good giggle from your Blog! Thank you! Cheers! 🙂


  3. Sasha, The weather here is very nice today but I feel down. I have to go to a graduation party for my husband’s grandaughter. There is is history of her father ( who is a first class ass hole) and us, and of course he will be there. But he is divorced from my step daughter, so I’ m hoping I won’t be seeing much of him. It’s just the thought. I can’t let 1 person bring me down. But of course there will be more than 1 there. Can’t wait until it’s over. At least there will be ahcohol. (I hope). And I can sneak my little bottle in my pocket! starting to feel better and thanks for listening. I hate writing about downers.


    • Oh Joanne, I hope it went well and was a not as bad as you thought it might be….there are so many days that can turn into something like that…if you can just get through today, tomorrow you can begin again. Cheers my friend.
