Shit. I think I left the curling iron on.

4. Rand gets artistic, near the Peerless Hotel.

I think I was looking at some sort of feral child.

5. Vending machine magic: a pack of M&Ms had gotten stuck earlier, meaning that we got two for the price of one.

This marks the only good thing about our stay at the Plaza.

6. Tropical vignette. I get waaay too excited about the colored pencils placed at the table at an Ashland restaurant. Rand claims they are for children. I tell him to shut up.

Sweet jesus, like I dont think about this all the time, anyway.

8. Dusty pathway near Emigrant Lake.

By day, gorgeous. By night? A little too Blair-witchy.

Sigh.

  • I like him too, but you don’t see me kissing him all the time. Note, you don’t see me doing it all the time.

  • I like your caption for the statue. I saw a sign in southern california that said “Do you have defensable space?” I thought about that for a long time.

  • Lisa

    Two things:

    1) Kiss him as much as you possibly can.

    2) I need a Philip in my life.

  • Slide viewer? Check. Slides? Check. Image of your mother when she was 26, pregnant with your brother, that you've never seen before? Check.
  • Whoa. Rand received this rather remarkable gift from someone at a conference and it's led to a lot of discussion in our house about the verisimilitude of it. Also, is it weird that people are constantly giving us likenesses of ourselves?
  • Little dude learning to skip rocks on a crystal clear Bavarian lake. Traveling with @wilreynolds & @norapreynolds is the best. #randtookthis #nofilter #bavariansunset #latergram
  • We visited an Abbey where monks brew beer. Somebody's photobombing us. And this was before the drinking. #randtookthis
  • Just visited my step-mother for the first time since my father died. She gave me a box of photos, many which I'd never seen, including this one of my grandfather on my parents' wedding day. This image of him, his face obscured by smoke, is fascinating to me. In my lifetime, I'd never seen him pick up a cigarette, ever.
  • Cheers! Not sure who was more excited to toast over dinner here in Bavaria. Both Rio And Wil look equally psyched.
  • This again. Off to Germany. Really nervous to see Dad's final resting place for the first time. But this guy has been super supportive. So grateful for him. #thisagain #randaldineselfie #selfiesonaplane
  • My husband's grandfather hugged me goodbye after we had breakfast today, and said, "Take care of my little boy." If you need me, I will be crying forever and ever and ever.
  • Geraldine lost her voice (from recording her AUDIO BOOK!) and so made this handy card to take around at the #Mozcon Local afterparty. #randtookthis
  • Geraldine's uncle, Andy, explains to her, in his Cockney accent, how her book was very well written, even though "half the stories were rubbish." Of course her aunt never would say that you can get bubonic plague from cats... No way. (he read a preview copy - final version comes out May 4th) #randtookthis #everyonesacritic #allovertheplace
