Best of 2007: Round One, Match Six (Roast Chicken and Poi Dog Pondering)  
I made my first ever roast chicken dinner yesterday and it came out perfect. Although I was so concerned about getting the chicken, gravy and stuffing right, that I messed up the mashed potatoes, which I'm old hat at. Still, the chicken was fantastic. And now I've got a pot of chicken noodle soup ready for dinner tonight.

After dinner, K. and I went to see Poi Dog Pondering at the World Cafe. Great show. They were playing as a five piece (mostly) acoustic group rather than the full band. The best part was when they played "Catacombs" (by my request), but they also did a fantastic cover of "Into the Mystic." I think it was probably the oldest audience I've ever seen a show with. I'm used to feeling like the old man at concerts, but with this show I felt like a young whippersnapper.

You've really been making this difficult by mixing the photo types. You have a "celebrity" with a pretty nice ass, a vintage, and two very different styles of outdoor shots.

Ah, but they have something even more important in common: aspect ratio.

Oh what to do..

I am partial to D.

Confession: I have posed in a similar manner many times in different landscapes but I always keep my hiking boots on.

Hiking boots would be fine in that picture, but if she'd been wearing high heels I'd have been annoyed.

I hate to break it to you guys, but "a" looks like she might be a he. http://pics.mediaplazza.com/t_15/101x80/37_37.gif

She's a pretty well-known actress with kids, so I think you're mistaken.

D is my photo of the year. I'm just glad it made the cut - it was the desktop for my home laptop for two weeks (I usually change desktops every couple days).
