Since I’m gearing up for participation in a wedding

An interesting vid

About the “power of photography.” Though it’s more about photojournalism than just straight “good photos.”

Found at DPS, as I usually do with these photo things.

And with that, it’s about time to pack up and head for Denver.

Ugh… campaign season…

When you get four or five calls a night asking about the “upcoming elections,” even not answering gets old. Sometimes I just like to screw with them.

Hey, at least it ties up their lines for a while…

What a selection I’ve found for you this week, if I do say so myself!

Random Food

It was supper last night. Grilled chicken with grilled chilies and bleu cheese sauce.

It was good. And because I know someone will ask, the sauce had plain yogurt, cream cheese, and bleu cheese in it, and no, I can’t remember the proportions.

To all you drivers of small, fuel efficient cars

Do you realize exactly how much of an idiot you look when you follow me so close I can’t even see you in the mirrors of my big evil pickup truck? I bet your car will get even better gas mileage when your radiator has a big hole punched in it from my trailer hitch and you’re stranded on the side of the road with a angry yet befuddled look on your face.  Meanwhile I won’t even notice that you’ve rear ended me and keep on my merry way.

Cheerfully yours, and please die screaming in a fire (without involving me or my insurance),

Okay, one more

One more off the new Muse album (can you tell I’m excited?)

Apparently this one was the official song or something of the London Olympics. If I had know Muse had done something for it I would have payed attention to more than the 0% that I did! Rats!

Goin’ to the chapel…

Well, as I kinda mentioned in passing a while back when talking about getting fitted for a tux, one of my best friends from the time I was born (our mothers were in the maternity ward together…) is getting married this weekend. So don’t be surprised if there’s a couple sappy love songs or something as I try to psych myself up for it. Or more completely random songs as I try to not dwell on having to attempt to dance.

Something a little different

Have some Mongolian music (at least, I think it’s Mongolian. I don’t actually know what “Хилийн тэнгэр цэлмэг байгаасай” means)

Tell me this isn’t a sign of the times


I mean, I know that LL Bean made “hunting” gear in the most yuppie/fudd-like of ways, but I’ve never seen them directly advertise it. We are winning.

Worse than getting a paper cut at the lemon juice factory


A cut right between my fingers. It even hurts to click my mouse…

Trying to decide if I want to branch out on some of the things that I’ve had for a while but need new of, in this case undershirts. “Great,” says I, “I’m an Amazon prime member now, so lets look around!”

Half an hour later I can’t tell if, say, this one as an example, is too long, too short, too heavyweight, too lightweight, too shrinkable, too long, flat collar, rolling collar, and etc, and etc.

I thought Amazon prime was supposed to make me never want to go to Wally World again? Right now it’s having the opposite effect…

Canned cat


The steam canner was out drying off and the cat thought it would make a lovely bed. Guess it’s gonna have to be cleaned out again…
