Where no one has gone before...
...with the exception of 2004...
Our 2nd week on the job here in LA, Dave and I were asked if we wanted to go to Las Vegas and do the Zero Gravity flight with Buzz Aldrin. We were all hmm, i don't know, maybe we should just stay at home in LA without any furniture, television or internet instead...We didn't have to think about that one long! What a treat to meet one of the first men on the moon.
This was not our first Zero G flight. We first boarded G-Force One in 2004 in Ft. Lauderdale. I believe I blogged about it too, so sorry for the re-run!
I wasn't actually on board the flight this time. They have zero gravity trained photogs. I'm glad I was able to experience it in '04 or I would have been one disappointed photog! You may be shocked to hear (and if you are, you don't regularly read this blog) I'm a bit of a space geek. :)
In fact... one of our most outlandish goals in life is to make it into space. Originally, I was shooting for the moon, but y'know, I think I would be satisfied with the curvature of the Earth. For now, this is as close as you can get to that experience.

Hartman is 10 years old this month! Since I don't know the exact date of her birth-- we celebrate her birthday EVERY day in May!
My niece, Cydney, bought Hartman a present with her own money. Her Mom, Pam, asked her who her best friend in the world was-- she answered "Hartman!" Isn't that sweet! :)
Hartman unwraps her gift!
It's a Play-n-Squeak Bumblebee! Now I have to tell you... Hartman is one picky kitty. I bought her a kitty condo once--- she hated it. But she LOVED the box it came in! She usually sticks her nose up at anything that is not a milk ring or twisty tie...
Oh, but wait--
Could it be????---
She LOVES her little bumblebee!
Thanks Cydney!

In other news, Rue McClanahan is my first LA celebrity interview! She's quite witty and very friendly. It was a fun chance to break out some of the toys in my light kit for the interview. BREAKING NEWS:

We interupt this blog to bring you this important announcement: Cydney and Hartman have just been hired to anchor the evening news. :)

Well I'm going to go buy a new couch now. We donated our old couch--dubbed the 'most uncomfortable couch---ever' by, well, pretty much everybody who ever sat on it. My sister-in-law Amy actually says the couch 'hurt her eyes' to look at. I can't seem to find a good picture of it quickly enough. I've gotto go to Ikea! (so excited to live in a city with an Ikea again!)
