Road Tripping Again

So the art is kind of on hold here for a bit while I'm learning animation. They gave us real animation rigs in class yesterday and its pretty intimidating. My assignment was to do a walk cycle with two steps and I couldn't do it in time! I tried though. The teacher understands. It's cool. I'll learn this pretty slowly, but I will learn it and then it will be really fun! I really do love animation. It's just so awesome bringing things to life!

Ok so I did another road trip with Heidi last weekend. It was pretty fun, and also a completely new drive for me. We went from Salt Lake City to San Francisco. The coolest thing we saw was the Utah salt flats. Man such an alien looking place! Anyways, here are some pictures:

Here's The Great Salt Blue Line


Soon after we passed The Great Salt Lake we passed this big pile of white stuff. Here was our conversation:

Heidi: I wonder what that is.
Jen: Yeah, I don't know.

*pause*

Jen and Heidi: Oh.


Mrs. Incredible says "Heck YES!" to the salt flats!


Here I set the timer on my camera to take a picture of Heidi and I in front of the salt flats, but as I was running into place I lost my shoe, and I didn't want to go back for it cause it would waste too much time, so I kept going, pathetically hopping along, but it was too much for me, so finally I yelled "I GIVE UP!" and started to throw the frisbee down in a white hot rage, and then the camera went off.

Behold the magical glistening salt flats!


Frisbee on the salt flats! So. Awesome.


Yeah, and THIS is how we decided what CDs to play on our road trip. I'm not going to explain it. Just know that anything involving two 20 sided dice is two nerdy for explanation.


Yep. There is is.


And finally, we put this Cars image up in our window just to be dorks. We realized it was upside-down after about two hours.

Heidi thinks you should use "Jenerally Speaking" I said, "Blog, sounds too much like boog." And Lissa said, "If they were boogs, what would you call bloggers?"

Hey Jen, what did your doctor tell you about staying away from salt? If your doctor found out,he'd have a fit!

Ed - Yeah me too dude! :(!

Steve - Yeah, "Jenerally Speaking" is pretty awesome. I told Heidi I might change it. I don't want to be a booger!

Jesus - That's why I was a good girl and I didn't eat the salt flats. ;)!

OMG ROTFLMAO that's seriously classic, Jen :P

I envision it played out as a black-and-white tragedy/ drama, with no sound, with you collapsing to your knees and pounding your fist in defiance at the hot sun ... lol ok maybe not.

XD! Yes, obey the dice! Do not question the dice! >:O

err ok now i sound crazy

Sounds like it was fun, nice to hear about your trip. The freedom to roam and explore can be kind of awesome and empowering, and enlightening too ...
yeah, i'm just looking for some way to end this now that doesn't sound too lame :O *thinks for a second*
