no, my blog hasn't died

in case any of you were wondering, which i'm sure you weren't.

bugs aren't incredibly intelligent creatures. for the past few minutes, i have been watching a small fly. first it was attracted to the light of my computer screen. i like to pretend i'm a vampire sometimes so i sit in the dark with only my computer on. anyway, i think this fly was trying to find a way INSIDE the computer. poor thing. i turned on a lamp to give it somewhere else to go. then it was flying around the light of the lamp for a little while trying to figure out how to get through the lampshade to the lightbulb. it didn't fly up or down to the openings, just kept trying to go through it. finally it got stuck on a piece of tape on the wall. sad. i guess it was either that or get burned by the lightbulb. he certainly wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed, poor guy.

camera phones are a great luxury, aren't they? i LOVE being able to have a phone AND a camera all in one! so much versatility and mobility. PLUS my phone is super skinny, so i can just stick it in my pocket and i dont even need to carry a purse anymore. here are some pictures i have taken with my 1.3 megapixel camera phone:

one fun activity native to dc is jumbo slice. and when i say jumbo slice, i mean jumbo slice.

here is abdul pretending to drink from the coffee/tea pot i got him in israel.

this boy has amazing fine motor skills when it comes to manipulating wire. we like to build wire sculptures together.

here is ferraby lionheart playing at the rock and roll hotel in dc. awesome venue, awesomer musician.

i even have some videos of the some of the kids i work with on the playground. for their privacy, i don't think it would be a good idea for me to upload them to youtube and then post them here. the point is - my camera phone rocks.
