Yesterday I took some digital pictures of Anna-Maria for her application to the National Theatre School in Montreal. The best ones were taken outside and then I photoshoped them so that they had a completely white background. She had some taken in one of those two dollar photo machines at the mall, but they were way overexposed and basically useless. Anyway when I got to Cosco to have them developed — well I had saved a bunch of them on CD but there was only one that I really wanted and it was the only one that I saved in .tif format. As you might be guessing Cosco doesn’t develop tifs, jpegs only. I was somewhat frustrated but what can you do? Anna went out this morning and had them developed; they look great.
I took Anna’s roommate Zee along with me in case they asked why the name on the Cosco Club Card said Anna-Maria so that she could say, “Oh that’s me”. And when it came time to pay she did in fact pull through and say, “yep, I’m Anna”. Even though the picture of Anna on the back of the card is half worn out, Zee still looks nothing like her. Almost immediately after claiming to be Anna, Zee started talking with me about Anna’s play and if we should go see that movie The Ring, “Anna and her sisters really liked it!” I couldn’t believe her and I’m sure the guy thought we were quite the imposters / losers but he didn’t say anything.
