Have I ever mentioned how awesome Wes is? Because seriously, the man is fantastik. Not fantastic. Fantastik. He’s so cool he gets his own special spelling of a cool word. That’s pretty cool.
The reason I’m so singing Wes’ praises right now is that he’s doing me a huge favor by helping me out with a big project for work. We have to do a video to win a small business grant and none of us has the time or skill to shoot and edit a video. We were going to have one of my boss’ friends help us out yesterday but the scheduling didn’t work out. I was looking at the prospect of having to shoot the video myself (a very bad idea) and I called Wes to kvetch. He sprang into action and put his projects on hold to save the day.
Within an hour we had a bunch of raw footage and Wes was home again, editing his face off. He worked all day (in between conference calls and interviews) and has a rough draft already done. It’s awesome. The editing is great, the shots are fun, and he even wrote an original guitar riff to play during the intro. Seriously, he went the extra mile and then kept right on going.
That’s the real Thing That Does Not Suck this week, but I’m loathe to show the video off yet because it’s not done. Instead, to sate your appetite for non-suckitude, I present you with a site I just discovered today. It’s called Awkward Family Photos and showcases the very best awkward family photos ever scraped off the bottom of someone’s hall closet. It’s an amusing site with which to waste some time, and I doubt they’ll run out of photos to showcase soon.
I’ll leave you with my favorite photo from that site, with the hopes that your Friday and weekend are substantially less awkward than any of the photos on that site.
Think fertile thoughts for me this weekend as I take another pregnancy test to discern whether my extremely late period (seriously, like a week and a half late) is due to freak of nature-ness or because of a tiny little person. I will of course keep you all posted (ha ha! Get it? Posted? Because I write blog posts?) I’m going to leave now before I pun again.
