The plan was to boycott images. and the only photo on my blog for a long time now has been my comments’ icon; a photo of my sister’s twins when they were about six months old. Well, this goes to show that when it comes to these girls, i just can’t play Activist.
Like my earlier post incoherently tells, my sister and her amazingly beautiful look-exactly-the-same-daughters and her boyfriend Nick are visiting for a week as part of their summer holiday plan.
Seeing as I haven’t got my own holiday, and can’t exactly take a week off even when i have the option to, I hope to spend the afternoon tomorrow with them and most of wednesday. I originally asked for two full days off (tuesday and wednesday) to spend time with them, but i also don’t want to miss the Cameron Sinclair four day(s) workshop going on at Fabrica this week. So i decided to make a compromise; i two afternoons and maybe one fullday with them, that way I get participate and spend time with family at the same time (hopefully–)
