I Can Haz Pretty Pictures

Thanks to that Oh-So-Classy OHmommy, I can now get results that my average but not fantastic Pentax Optio 550 camera cannot. OHmommy provided a link to Picnik which is a godsend for us photoshop impaired. Now I've been spending all of my free time doing things like this (plus the photos from my previous entry):

Also, if your dog isn't terribly friendly towards children, please do not stand directly in front of the entry way of a CHILD CENTER /DANCE /PRESCHOOL chatting it up with your girlfriends and simultaneously barking orders at children (who approach the center and your dog) to PLEASE DON'T TOUCH YOUR DOG SHE'S NOT TRAINED!! Using all caps while speaking to my daughter. My "okay whatever lady" was said in exactly the tone I meant it so roll your eyes straight up your ass.

Wow, thanks for the heads up about the photo site! Your daughter is gorge-ous, by the way.

Our dog is not very friendly to other dogs and when we used to take her to the park we always kept her on a leash, LIKE YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO DO at this park, but other people's off-leash dogs would always come up and try to start a fight and the people would get pissed at US. We're like, DUDE! You're the one with the problem!

That's a lovely little tapdancer you have.

OHmommy said...

Awwwww... did you just mention my silly name? I blush. Thanks for making my day!

Oh. BTW... you are so in trouble. She is STUNNING!!!

Tootsie Farklepants said...

Awwww...thanks everyone! Yeah, I think she's awfully beautiful too. She has the thickest eyelashes!

And she's already boy crazy. I'm in BIG trouble.

Cheri said...

Amazing photos. I wondered how people do it. Thanks. Seriously.

Lisa Milton said...

Isn't picnik great? (Although you were working with some mighty fine material...)

And the dog thing - why would you drag an unsocialized dog to a public place? Yikes.

Melissa said...

Great snaps!
Yeah, dumb dog owners, you said it. Is that dance place a magnet for stupid people?

The phrase "roll your eyes straight up your ass" has now become my new favorite collection of words in the English Language. It's going to become very popular around here ...

Gorgeous girlie. With or without edits.

And THOSE people who bear dogs who hate children? Why don't they just stay AWAY from children?
