first she insisted that he be in the picture...

(these two are inseparable sometimes.)
visa take 1

then she insisted that she get out her camera too...
visa take 2

then she was just being a ham...
visa take 3

...before i finally got a normal, boring shot for her visa application (not shown here). =)

So I was "tagged" earlier today by the lovely Jen, a fellow photographer. Fun! So here's how it works:
The rules:
1. Post the rules on your blog.
2. Write 7 random things about yourself.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post.
4. Pass on the tag.

So here's my stream-of-consciousness list.

1) In one week, me and my family are up and moving to China (thus the visa photos) !!!!!

2) Contrary to somewhat popular belief, we are moving to China and not back to China. None of us have ever lived there, except for one summer I spent in Shanghai during college.

3) I tend to blog as a form of procrastination (thus blogging the night before the movers are coming rather than packing or sleeping)

4) I used to be an engineer

5) After studying Materials Science & Engineering for 6 years, I realized I actually wanted to work as a Mechanical Engineer. go figure.

6) The common theme among a lot of things I like to do (e.g. photography, cooking, knitting, craft projects, engineering) seems to be this insatiable need to create

7) When I got married, I only had to add one letter to my maiden name to get my husband's last name... and I didn't even need to change my signature. Convenient.

OK, jean, rebecca, wendy, sarah, julie, michele, joanne... your turn.

Hi Anita, oh man I can't believe you're moving already!! Like Jean, it seemed so far away when we talked about it! I hope the packing went as well as it could have! Take care on your trip!!

One week?! I hope you love it, and the whole "not moving back to China" totally cracked me up, LOL! Thanks for the tag, now I have to think of what to share, and who to tag...

could the shift from materials science to mechE be highly influenced by the husband? hehee =)
