december 21, 2010 // happy birthday loopy!

Today's my Dad's Birthday! I used to call him Loopy when I was little (and still do sometimes) because of his tendency to be a little crazy... in a good way. Dad, you're an amazing man. Thank you for teaching me that it's okay to be quirky! I love you!

A few fun facts about my dad:
-He was once on Candid Camera (or, at least he was pranked.. it never aired because he used a few too many unsightly words
-He once tried to pick up women at his apartment building in New York City by dressing up in a tuxedo during a power outage and greeting all of his female co-residents at the front door
-He loves Baskin Robbin's World Class Chocolate flavored ice cream
-He's always loved photography and he used to work for a camera/photo store. While working there, he won an award for selling the most holiday photo cards in the area.. maybe that's why I get so much joy out of photography!
-One of his favorite singers is Johnny Cash
