7QTF: Dinosaurs, Chipotle and an Old People's Cruise

Joining Jen for a very late in the day Seven Quick Takes Friday!

1. Real photographers may want to stop reading here because guys ... I discovered a new app! Discovered = read my friend Miranda (who is redesigning my blog ... eep!) uses it. I am OBSESSED. It's called A Beautiful Mess and it was 99 cents! Woot. I think it's my new obsession. One that I might be taking wayyyyyyyyyyy too far. Way. too. far. But maybe watch for my upcoming photography exhibit in your local Museum! :)







2. Speaking of obsessions ... I was on Netflix a few weeks ago looking to see if they had the show Bunheads. (RIP Bunheads ... I don't think you were given a fair shake.) They do not, however they did recommend that I may enjoy a show called Dance Academy. I quickly learned this was a show about a group of teens in the fictional National Academy of Dance in Sydney, Australia. Ballet? Australians? A show aimed at teens? I was SO THERE. And man, it did not disappoint. Happily, the dancing is LEGIT so I totally bought in. This show is so awesome. If you have Netflix and need something to get into ... Dance Academy. Watch one episode and come back and thank me!

3. I really like dinosaurs a lot and I also have a really elementary sense of humor. If you don't believe me take a gander at this photo:


I realized I had a T-Rex on my windowsill an also a Stegosaurus. This was the natural conclusion.

4. I thought the other day that I am no one's favorite person. My parents have more kids than just me, my grandparents have more grandkids than just me and I don't have a husband or kids. And that's sort of sad because it might be nice to be someone's most favorite person. But then I realized -- wait, Anna. I am Snicks the Bunny's favorite person! It might be because I am the only person he knows, but I'll take it!

5. CHIPOTLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chipotle. Comes. To. Huntington. It's open! I can barely stand myself. And if that is not enough good news for one lifetime ... I also heard they're putting in a Sheetz next door to the Chipotle. When did Huntington become Heaven?

6. People my age would probably dream of a tropical vacation in the Bahamas or a fancy trip to Paris, and, yeah, those things sound awesome! But my dream vacation of the moment? The Turner Classic Movies cruise! Dude. Me, a ton of people over 60, old movies and the people who starred in them. (And I don't even like old people.) Dream vacation! I'm ready to board the boat. Any takers?

7. My church, like many Catholic churches, has a fish dinner every Friday during Lent. They are awesome, but that's not what this is about. What this is about is that the Catholic elementary school attached to my parish has the kids draw place mats for the dinner. Please look at the one on my table tonight:


There are no words for how awesome this is. I'm dying to meet this genius.

Go see Jen for more takes!
