Weekly Words Challenge 7!

The words for this week were Inspire and Create.

I have to admit, I'm not all that thrilled about the pictures I took. Then again, I'll never be able to top the pictures from last week. Call me bias. Hopefully you all will have felt more creative.

How did you interpret them?

Inspire


Work seems to go a lot smoother when you have something pretty to look at.


My Grandma sent me these in honor of Hoop's and my engagement.


Unfortunately, the guys at work took them to mean that I'm pregnant. I'm not. They're just idiots.

Create


...a new me. It's not as short as I wanted it, but the hairdresser seemed to have reservations about chopping off my locks.


And if you can get past the fact that I'm holding a BFG (Big Fucking Gun), you'll see my new highlights. They're orangy in loo of the season.

(Random Pictures)

Owl Eyes


Watch Dogs


Dorothy (2) and The Lube Man

We saw these people on the way out. I would like to note, this is not the same Dorothy I saw in the bathroom. This one, as you can see, is Toto-less.

The words for next week are:

Old
and
Blue

BONUS SPORK POINTS: Halloween

If you haven't joined the fun, go

Lube man is pretty darn scary!

I like your hair. It looks great! And so do the other pics.

I love your pictures - I think they're great. What a nice grandma to send you flowers. And I really like your new do - I have hair envy now.

I can't stop looking at the picture of lube man's package, and I'm not sure I thank you for that! ;)

lube man is to my eyes as pointy shoes are to my groin

Those a great photos. I love the new do, it's very cute.

Lube Man--*shudder*

My pics are up. I'm really enjoying playing.

Since when do flowers = pregnant? That's funny!
I love the pics - all of them! And I think the hair cut is GREAT - I can totally understand the hairdresser's reservations. I'm sure a lot of people go in, say "Cut it all off!" and then freak out when they actually do. The same thing happened when I went to get my waist-length hair cut back in the day. :)

Is the BFG an airsoft gun? My husband is an airsoft player and I know there are huge groups down your way in Florida.. which is why I asked.
Love your hair~

 
At 30 October, 2007, Blogger Chris said...

Your hair looks good, but I'm going to have nightmares about Lube Man...

Love the hair, Tink! When I think you cannot get anymore cuter, you prove me wrong!

Nope, that "Dorothy" does not look like the little girl I saw yesterday at the Halloween party! :)

 
At 30 October, 2007, Blogger Aunt Jackie said...

Mine are up and as well, I didn't feel very "creative" this week, but I did what I could... My haircut was a little shorter than I really had planned. But it's o.k. My hair grows fast... I was brave and put up a new ugly self-portrait that I 'Created' :) lol Happy Tuesday.

btw, beautiful flowers... and Dorothy looks like a lil' Ho ;)

Fun pics this week.

Wait...wait...wait just a doggone minute. You mean that flowers on someone's desk indicate pregnancy in your office? Those guys ARE morons. Avoid at all costs!!

 
At 30 October, 2007, Blogger Karen said...

I love your hair cut! I am finally getting used to mine after a week of misery.

The nasty tan lines on Lube Man's legs are are gross! LOL

I played the WWC again too.

 
At 30 October, 2007, Blogger Jay said...

I never thought of Dorothy as such a hussy. I kind of like it!

Love the new do! And I'll be sure to be nicer to you now that I know you have a BFG!

The watch dogs are hilarious!

 
At 30 October, 2007, Blogger Joel said...

The flowers look great! Oh, the BFG a lil funny! :)


Owl eyes caught my attention!

 
At 30 October, 2007, Anonymous mamatulip said...

Holy fuck, is that a real BFG or just one of those very real looking water guns?

LOL.

Your hair looks great! I really like it -- I think the length really suits you.

Your grandmother is really sweet to send you flowers. :)

 
At 30 October, 2007, Blogger Tink said...

No water or paint gun. That BFG is the real deal. Although it wasn't loaded at the time I was holding it. Thankfully! :)

 
At 30 October, 2007, Blogger Jen said...

I played WWC today. Back in the game.

Lube man is perfect. . . to provide the necessary nightmares I did not need.

Seriously, I didn't think the costumes could get any sexier & there they go!

Tink! Your hair is fabulous! [Did you have enough left over to donate?] I'm not gay, but damn!

 
At 30 October, 2007, Blogger mrspao said...

I missed you getting engaged! Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bias!

Well, you said.

Like the new do. Short is the new long.

 
At 30 October, 2007, Blogger Alli said...

Love the hair! You are inspiring me to do something with my mop.

Love the Stargazer lillies!!! I had them in my wedding bouquet & absolutely adored them. One of my favs now.

Lubeman scares me.

 
At 30 October, 2007, Blogger R.E.H. said...

Love your flower pics. Vibrant colors on those.

About your hair... I'm glad you didn't cut it too short. I like it the way it turned out.

About Dorothy and Lube Man. She needs to lose that weirdo and come on over to my place... maybe I can help her find Toto...

I entered the WWC for the first time myself this week. Nothing brilliant, but I'll try to improve my skills in the coming weeks.

 
At 30 October, 2007, Blogger Pamer said...

Cute hair...i had visions of Dorothy Hamil style bob..

 
At 30 October, 2007, Blogger Hilary said...

Lovely flower pics.. and cute haircut. :) Your blog is always a fun read.. lube men notwithstanding.

 
At 30 October, 2007, Blogger Terri said...

I'm in WWC again, 2nd week. It's incredibly fun - whoever is not doing it needs to. I love checking out everyone's pics. Great hair and beautiful flowers Tink!
And in other news my SIL is soooo into guns; she's shot some big ones like that and loved it. Scary!

 
At 30 October, 2007, Blogger Tawcan said...

A BFG? Geesh now I have to watch out when I say bad things about you on my blog. ;) :p

 
At 31 October, 2007, Blogger Peggy said...

Love the new haircut, it is v sophisticated!

Why is it that women use Halloween as an excuse to dress like sluts? I'm not complaining, just an observation.

 
At 31 October, 2007, Blogger janet said...

flowers: beautiful

hair: adorable

lube man: i have to gouge out my eyes now.

 
At 31 October, 2007, Blogger captain corky said...

I like the way you handle that machine gun! When I reform the A-Team I want you to join.

 
At 31 October, 2007, Blogger butterfly girl said...

Love the hair!! Orange streaks and all!

I man that can appear naked in public like that is one very secure man or he's so drunk he lost his costume!

Happy Halloween Tinky Poo!!!!

Is that a bottle of oil int hat guys underwear?!

 
At 31 October, 2007, Blogger Orhan Kahn said...

PS. You look as cute as ever :)

 
At 31 October, 2007, Blogger g-man said...

Nice photos. (Lube dude withstanding). I was actually shooting this week with your words in mind, but only came up with squat. (maybe the one with my daughter looking up and the photoshopped graveyard, eh) I hope to join your game with this weeks set of words.

Are those stargazer lilies? Nice hair.

 
At 31 October, 2007, Blogger Christy said...

The watch dog on the left is totally doing a split!

 
At 31 October, 2007, Blogger Arabella said...

Great haircut for a grown-up engaged lady!

 
At 31 October, 2007, Blogger Jay Cam said...

what?!
i thought "BFG" meant "Big Friendly Giant"...
are you telling me my whole life was a lie?!
....

happy halloween!

 
At 31 October, 2007, Blogger Betty said...

One of your words for next week fits me to a "T", but I will NOT let Jay take my picture for it! Love the watch dogs, and your hair is cute.

 
At 31 October, 2007, Blogger Scottsdale Girl said...

PUPPY BUTTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 
At 31 October, 2007, Anonymous gawilli said...

I love the new do! The good news is that its better to have it a little longer than you like, than a little shorter. It reminds me of the days when I had bangs and my mom always cut them too short. Bangs? That's a blast from the past.

I let Willi be creative for this post. I just took the picture.

 
At 01 November, 2007, Blogger Gracey said...

What pretty flowers! Love the hair too!

 
At 01 November, 2007, Blogger Portia said...

I too love the pictures and the haircut:) And, I honestly can't remember if I already congratulated you, so here's me wishing you and Hoop all the best!!

 
At 01 November, 2007, Blogger Lefty said...

I didn't do WWC this week. I couldn't think of something for Inspire. I think I can do old and blue.

You're pregnant?! Wow! Great work, Hoop. I knew he had it in him.

 
At 01 November, 2007, Blogger Newt said...

You are so damn adorable. Your hair looks fantastic.

A friend once took me shooting. He was the envy of every guy there. Having the "lil lady" going to the range.

Hahahahahaha
