This month is National Epilepsy Awareness month and Kristine has asked us to come up with some photos that represent the following:

1. Something you seize (as in seizure, get it?)

november 17, 2006 - day 55

I seize control over my own feelings today. I feel excited about moving to the US and living with my hubby :)

2. Something that shakes (because you shake when you have seizures)

My new home shakes. Pretty much multiple times a day. Most of the time people won’t feel it, but the seismographs record multiple earthquakes per day! I am geologist. I must be fascinated by this [and I am!].

3. And something purple (because purple is the color for National Epilepsy Awareness Month!)

Something purple

Ok, this is lame… it’s the only purple thing I could find. It’s a paper clip that I’ve had since I was 12 or so. I just love the bunny ears hoody :) SANRIO stuff is so cute… is it ok for a grown woman to like stuff like that? ;)

So, let me know… did you play? I want to come and check it out!
Happy Friday everyone!

  1. Great SPF! And welcome to the Bay Area (in 5 days)! All the shaking going on here just keeps things interesting! :)

  2. I love how your hair looks in that first shot. I am so jealous.

    Welcome to the USA! I know you will love it.

    I think that’s cute how you still have that paper clip.

    I played.

  3. hi sweetie, gosh i am so excited for you! love your SPF. you look gorgeous. like always. :-) counting down the days? so you will be here for thanksgiving huh? awesome. what are you two gonna do. oh and give me your phone number so i can call and say hi! enjoy the last weekend in germany!! big kiss

  4. Wow..I didn’t realize CA had that many earthquakes! Crazy the ground can shake and nobody can feel it.

    Welcome to the USA!! It’s a big move! I can only imagine your excitement!

    I played – have a great weekend!

  5. Wow- only five days now- that is terrific! I can’t imagine how excited you must be. :-)

    I used to live in Southern California. I’m not sure if I ever got used to the “shaking” that went on there.

    Happy SPF and I played too.

  6. Love the first pic! You just have gorgeous eyes!!

    I remember the earthquake graphs from a visit to SF and i was constantly waiting to “feel” one ;-) Silly girl huh?

    Happy SPF, I played

  7. oooh! i am so jealous! i visited California for the first time back in September & fell in love with it…

    happy SPF! i played too. =)

  8. Yeah, your seizing picture is great!!!

    I can’t believe that CA shakes multiple times per day!! I had no idea.

    I might play when I get home… don’t happen to have a camera here right now. Too bad for me.

  9. I like your picture, you look so happy.
    I played too.

  10. Have fun with all that shaking! ;)

  11. love the shot of you and the purple thing is SO cute!

  12. Nice picture…and enjoy the shaking!!!

  13. Welcome to the US of A!! My sister was born in Kaiserslautern:-) Great SPF and congrats!

    I played as well, so come on by!

  14. Great interpretation!

    Thanks for stopping by mine :)

  15. Kind of scary to think of earthquakes on a daily basis… Was there an increase due to the rumble in the ocean near Japan or is this normal?? Scary.. Good think you love these things ;-)

    Totally appropriate for a grown up to love cute things! Ha! ;-)

    Smoochie! Have a fantastic weekend!
