I Can Fit in a Cage

What exactly are they doing up there at CCRMA? Why does the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics have a cage? Is it for bad bad grad students?

Cage B

I’ve been looking for a cage ever since my bestie DD gave me this shirt. Finally!

 

Cage A

Cage C

 

 

I have Photoshop and I can do five things with it. Here they are.  Note: I have no idea how I did thing #3.

Special thanks to my trusty assistant Velda – who steadied the cage and promised to call an ambulance if I knocked it over while trying to get back out.

She can fit in a dryer!

Everybody loves a dryer, but this is the first washing machine. And a front-loader at that. Nice job Alessandra!

c. 2007 – I hope Alessandra is still squeezing in small spaces today.

 

 

 

 

 

I still can’t fit in a suitcase.

I keep trying, but I just can’t top Jessie.

One day I will prevail.

Just a box.

I see you looking back at me.

I can sneak onto a little train

Happy New Year!  A little bit late.

Closed… That’s okay. I’ll be in and out in time for 2015.

Flash fitting!

Where can I fit at Yosemite?

Would you believe we were the only people in the Bay Area to have the great idea to drive to Yosemite National Park over the three-day Independence Day week-end? BWAH HA HA. The traffic passed from bad to worse to kind of amazing. We skipped the valley, opting instead for the north area of the park. We completed a hike to our highest elevation yet – 9926 at the top of Cloud’s Rest.

I can fit in a big girl box.

Why hello! It’s been awhile.  I hope you are still there. You may have wondered (worried?) that I stopped fitting in things. Not to fear! I have been fitting in things as the spirit strikes me. But I have a j-o-b, which has absorbed ALL of my time this year. I have a backlog of at least ten things I’ve fit in, but didn’t have time to post. Plus fan submitted pics!

What to start with? What significant thing happened this year? Well, I turned 40. And for my 40th birthday my man got me a big girl bike (my other bike is a convenient but dorky Dahon commuter folding bike). Can I fit in the bike box? Why yes, yes I can.

Special thanks to my trusty assistant – the man with the two red shoes.

I can fit under the Excelsa Quartet

Not only are these East Coast gals smart, funny, and babealicious, they play stringed instruments – FRETLESS*!!

*Warning: general fretting may occur on a daily basis. 

Anyway, this was the end of a long week for Valentina, Laura, Audrey and Kacy. They performed, like, 62 concerts in 9 days. 4realz yo.

Are Audrey’s cheekbones amazing or what?

2. Excelsa

I call this the “Red-eye Removal doesn’t work on Satan’s glowing orbs.”

3. Excelsa

HEY EVERYBODY I USED TO KNOW OR HOOK UP WITH IN D.C. – Go see one of their concerts.

There, that should boost attendance.

Special thanks to my trusty assistant Jim.
