Busy weekend. Here’s the non-authorly part.
On Saturday morning, in a wind that totally effed up my hair, I went to Gosch’s Paddock for Melbourne Victory’s open training session. The Grand Final is on this coming Saturday in Melbourne. If you can’t be there in person, be sure to find it on TV. Internationals, ask your favourite pub or sports bar to screen it.
From Costa Rica, José Luis López Ramírez.
Also from Costa Rica, Carlos Hernández Valverde.
And from Brazil, Ney Fabiano de Oliveira.
Though because this is Australia, their names are commonly shorter than the ones above from Wikipedia 😉
Now that I can use Microsoft Office Picture Manager, I’ve altered some more photos of Manny with books. Feel free to caption them (keep them clean) and post them on websites – it all helps to promote the authors. Just be sure to send me the URLs, and those of which you’ve found that other people have made. The original photos are all at my Flickr. The one displayed in this post is the one Mark Henry used to host a caption contest at one stage.
Notice how Manny looks more alive in these photos with Amanda Feral and Rachel Vincent‘s works. And he was curled up because it must’ve been cooler weather (it’s summer, and I’m sweating as we speak).
Yes, new userpic, taken sometime in January. The lighting made me look dark, but in reality I look like a pasty-white English backpacker. And yes, my head usually ends up on a tilt in photos. I’m unsteady 😉 And I’m convinced that RJ Anderson and I are related somehow.
So I’ve got myself a Flickr, but am having trouble finding people. Please let me know how I can find you there. Ta.
Uploaded are photos I took this afternoon (okay, Friday afternoon; it’s Saturday now) of my cat Manny with various books (by Kristopher Reisz, Jeri Smith-Ready, Anton Strout, Marta Acosta, Kat Richardson, Jeanne C Stein, Mark Del Franco, Megan Hart, Jennifer Rardin, Jackie Kessler and Jenna Black). This was circa afternoon nap time, so he looks drugged. Note: the weather was warm (27C), so he stretched out. When it’s cooler, he does the foetal position thing.
Way past my bedtime now.
