Okay, so I have 14,465 pictures in my iPhoto library. Most of them are of my kids, but ya'll know my favorite thing to do is to put pictures of myself on my own blog, so I'd say a good 1500 of them are just of me.
And about 14,300 of them just suck.

And this one
Aso this one
I am no Jamie or Gina, that's for sure.
I mostly take pictures of Harry and Jack's butts and feet (not on purpose)
Or wait until something awkward is obscuring a face before I snap
I have 14,465 pictures in my iPhoto library, and I am out of memory-- I didn't even have enough spare space to update my freaking iTunes software. I got an error message that I swore to Ben meant I needed a MacBook Pro, but he was not buying that (my interpretation of the message OR the computer). He suggested I back my stuff up to my time machine and clear my iPhoto library. This seems like a reasonable suggestion, and I know that the 10,000 pictures (of Harry! Just Harry! 10,000!) that used to reside on my now-defunct PowerBook are just fine on my external hard drive. But they're all the way upstairs in my desk, and I am all the way down here on my couch, so they might as well be in Siberia (speaking of? I'm totally freaked out about rogue asteroids, and I blame Ben because he had a glib FB status update about a potential impact in 37 years, and I started googling all this crazy shit about asteroids hitting the earth and Siberia 1908 was at the top of the list).
So, internets, what do I do? Is it safe to clear my library after I back up my photos, or will my kids' memories be destroyed? Should I tell iTunes 8.1 or whatever to shove it and never add another thing to my hard drive (except pictures! I take more shitty pictures everyday!) Should I upgrade my memory? Delete bad pictures before they make it from camera to computer?
Or was I right all along, and I just need the MacBook Pro? (also wow-- spellcheck thinks MacBook is a real word now-- neat).
Thanks in advance for all the advice.
(and this is where I would say something sweet and post a lovely picture from my library, BUT I DON'T HAVE A LOVELY PICTURE BECAUSE I AM BAD AT TAKING THEM. so I'll leave you with this gem)
