This weekend was awesome – partly due to my lack of concentration on men and partly because I did what I wanted to do: shoot head shots. Shooting portraits is so much easier when the model is stunning, like Jeannie, The Funtasian.
“I used to cover myself in mud to keep the mosquitoes off,” said the full-time mother of two who’s eccentric flair has endeared her to not only to the Long Island comedy scene, but to comedy aficionados the world over.
Jeannie, founder of comedy blog, The Funtasian, has this to offer on her new-found popularity: “Be honest. Be patient. Use Clarisonic.”
Thankfully there were no mosquitos Saturday, but the folks driving over the tracks were just as pesky. “You shouldn’t hang out on the tracks,” one wrinkly old codger suggested, “They’re live tracks.”
“Okay,” Jeannie said sweetly, batting her lashes at him. As he drove away in amazement that a hot model just spoke to him, Jeannie flashed her middle fingers in his wake. “I’m not a dumbass,” she laughed. “But if people keep stopping us to tell us that these tracks are live, we will eventually get hit by a train!”
You can catch up with Jeannie and her Clarisonic at her website, funtasian.com.

I’m pretty sure I just saw blonde girl doing the walk of shame at 8:30 this morning as I sat at a light on my way to Starbucks. My first thought was, “Thank God it’s not me,” and my second was, “Whats with the stomach – is she prego already?” She was a relatively thin girl but her serious frontal MuffinTop was betraying a lack of workout. “Poor thing,” I thought as I tucked in the fat roll over my cotton-candy colored sweats. At which point the light turned green and I made my way to Starbucks to ordered a Venti Mocha Frap.
I just shot Jeannie, The Funtasian! I’m trying to push forward with my year of “me” and in doing so, I’m shooting more. I’m a graphic designer during the day, but I love photography and I try to freelance on the weekends. Making folks happy with a great shot is so much fun, especially when the model is gorgeous – like Jeannie!
We had an awesome photo shoot today: train tracks, gorgeousness, attitude and all – it was a blast. I’ll be posting photos this week, but in the meantime check out Jeannie’s blog, The Funtasian.
And here is a little teaser photo. What do you think?
The theory that there’s plenty of fish in the sea would be accurate if you had a taste for mackerel, cod or blowfish. What if the only fish you liked were salmon? Salmon swim upstream, for God’s sake!
I feel lost without having someone to “like” and I’m finding that annoying and quite pathetic. I blame this on my parents’ preconditioning.
The commuter lot where I park in the morning usually fills very quickly. As I walked from my car to the platform, I noticed a woman looking for an open space. My good deed: I calmly hailed her down and did a Vanna White to show her the open spot. “Thank you so much!” she said, out her car window. The spot was about 25 rows closer to the platform than the remaining open spaces 🙂
Searching for Tiffany’s reminded me of this lovely glossary addition: The Undercover Asshole. The UA could actually be male or female. It’s a person who’s seemingly genuine, who spurs-on a friendship or romance with you, but ultimately has their own agenda and isn’t as concerned for the relationship as you are, thereby hurting you in the process. Typically we don’t discover their agenda until it’s too late.
I was nominated for three awards but between my commute and blonde-ness, I haven’t posted diddly-doo about them. Huge thanks and hugs to the nominators! Will post asap
Lol “Aw look you sweet little poochie. Here boy aw look you’re so tiny…” Lift dog with one hand and over-hand throw the dog to the other side of the street. Did he clear the box truck?
