This shot is my first ever “bokeh panorama.” Basically, you take a a bunch of photos (I think I used 9 for this one) and stitch them all together in Photoshop to achieve a greater depth of field. This shot is nothing special, and kind of a dumb example because there is no detail in the background or anything, but I just wanted to see if I could get it to work. I did! Now I’m obsessed with someday doing a really great one.

Last night Greg took the Press Press guys (and Vada and me and my friend Lindsay) out to Mexican for dinner, which was really fun and delicious. I kept getting a few little dizzy spells here and there, but just kind of shook it off and everything was fine. Last night while I was sleeping though, every time I’d roll over, it felt like the entire room was rolling with me. By the time I woke up this morning I had terrible, extreme full-fledged vertigo! I couldn’t walk or move my head at all without the whole world spinning around me. It was crazy! And one of the worst feelings ever. Imagine that room-spinning feeling you get when you drink way too much and multiply it by a million. Eyes closed, open, sitting still, moving around, it won’t stop spinning… and in different directions depending on the position of your head. Fun, right? I called the doctor on call and spoke to someone in labor/delivery. She just told me to take it easy and drink water and call my doctor at 8:30 when he got in. Well, I didn’t get in touch with him until much later, but after a few hours of moving very carefully and slowly, the room stopped spinning and I felt much better. I’ve had a tinge of the spins here and there, but nothing like this morning. To be safe though, I definitely didn’t drive anywhere today. I am going to be so pissed if it comes back tomorrow – we need groceries. Seriously though, what the hell? Am I Lucille Two? It would be cool to take a break from ridiculous ailments for a little while. ♥

    Oh no, that’s not fun. :( I hope the vertigo stays far away and you feel 100% refreshed tomorrow. I got that once while pregnant and it totally felt like I was drunk. Blah.

    Feel better!

    I had the same problem when I was pregnant. After the doctor told me to drink some more water and lay down, it would go away but it would come back later. Then they made me go to the hospital and to run some test. One whole day and a lot of $$$ later I was told its normal bc your pregnant and to take it easy next time you get that feeling. Also love the arrested development reference, best show ever!

    I had vertigo one time this pregnancy – only in the morning and I was able to make it to work, but it was scary! Keep drinking that water :) :) and hopefully you’ll stay healthy!

    Oh Lindsay that sucks! I have occasional BPPV and the doctor told me to do this little exercise: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhkqFGxJthc

    You look like a freak, but it works well for me. I have no idea if it is designed for people that a preggers though. If you need a hand with anything, just give me a call!
