Sometimes I catch myself smelling like Grandpa Brinkerhoff. I think it was a mixture of sweat and sawdust that emanated from both his person after he had been working outside, or from his old blue truck all of the time. It's pretty gross when you think about it especially in relation to me, an apparently not so clean but young 23 year old girl who doesn't really do any physical labor. I don't hate it though. When I smell this particular smell on my person it reminds me of Grandpa. I'm not sure what the people around me think but it makes me smile. Grandpa Brinkerhoff passed down some distinct and ironic things to me: my nose and my smell.

A couple weeks ago I met a girl who does makeup and hair for photographers and she asked me if I would ever want to help her out for one of the shoots (I think she really liked my hair). So yesterday she contacted me to see if I wanted to do one last night and let me tell you, it's a good thing I spent so much time watching America's Next Top Model. I just did what Tyra taught me and I think it kind of worked out. We'll see. The photographer said she would get me some of the pictures after she edits them which will take a couple weeks so I had Sarah take a picture of me after I was done just to show off the makeup and hair. After I get the legit shots I'll post them on here too.

I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that when I was scheduling my flight to Portland I forgot that Jordan was coming in Thursday morning instead of Friday morning. So basically Jordan is going to get there Thursday morning and I'm not going to until Thursday evening at 5:30. The good news is that I have a bunny rabbit. She is precious and I'm not even allergic. I'll post some pictures of her soon. Joel thinks he's being replaced by her but just because I do all my blogging about her now doesn't mean that's what is going on.
