Okay, so I don't quite have it down to a science yet, but I'm getting there. Posting a video is a series of small complex tasks combined with a little luck, a little faith and a whole lot of swearing.
After I watched the videos we shot of Toby playing in the snow, I smacked my forehead and wondered why I had promised to share it. Not only was the footage horrible, but I think it's one of those things that falls under the category of "a face only a mother could love." If I've ever been sure about anything in my entire life, even more than knowing years ago that Lance Bass was gay, I'm sure that the entirety of this video is only enjoyable to the people who were there to experience it as it unfolded. And even I caught myself yawning.
But, alas, a promise is a promise. And at least five of you expressed (or feigned) interest.
So here it is. My second video. I've titled it "White stuff" and it's a thrilling 24 second clip of Toby rooting around in the snow and me forgetting how to zoom and just walking over for a shaky close up, instead.
I'm this close to figuring the whole video thing out, so I decided that having another go at it would help solidify the steps. Plus, my voice sounds so strange and manish in the last one that I wanted to prove I'm not on testosterone hormone therapy and undergoing a sex change. This third video presents a whole new set of challenges, though, because I'm wearing Jerry's two-tone brown hat over top of a bunchy ponytail, a red hooded sweatshirt and my purple coat. My only excuse is that I woke up less than an hour earlier AND I'M IN MY OWN BACKYARD (aka cut me some slack).
