Enemy mine...

On the left is my old motherboard with CPU installed. On the right is just the heat sync for my new CPU. Behind the camera is the most frustrated man in the world because after spending money that I don't really have, my computer still doesn't work. But I'm also a genius because I have an external backup drive that saved everything that matters. Now I will go cry myself to sleep.

Not possible.

I understand why you would put this on a small storage container, I just don't get why you would make him/her so sad. Who's ever seen a sad jack-o-lantern?

What color is my thumb?

One of these things is not like the other, three of these things are kinda the same. The not so much the same one has looked half dead for quite a long time now. I'm not ready to call it just yet, but it's not looking any worse today than it did six months ago.

*this whole arrangement was a gift to Cadiz and I from my older sister when she came for a visit shortly after I moved here. We both love it and it fits in nicely with our decor, but I'll be damned if I can't make that one guy look less dead!

Wash me

This is another panorama. Vertical this time. They really need to wash the windows over at the Daley Center.

Power lunch

Why would I take a picture of a magazine? Because I had lunch with the man featured in this article.

His name is George and he's a physics professor at U of I. The article is about how he helped the government bring down a diploma mill. It's in the January issue of Wired Magazine. He's a pretty interesting guy.

Remember this?

Yeah, that wasn't good enough. Never underestimate the ability to find loopholes.

Horror Movie

Not that long ago, I went to see Avatar in the theater because I have issues with 3D movies.  I can't not watch them.  You win Hollywood.  Are you happy?

Anyways, the movie was fine.  If you like 3D, and you're ok with an average story, you should go see it and enjoy yourselves.  But whatever you do, I hope you never come across this guy:

I should probably feel bad about inflicting this image on you, but honestly, I've been struggling with it myself for the past few weeks and I think it's time my misery had company.

Did I get a haircut? Sure did!

It is my greatest weapon as well as my greatest curse. Not a lot of people know this, but as a very small child I was diagnosed with a terminal hair condition. I have a cowlick.

I've had three separate doctors confirm the diagnosis and they've all come to the same conclusion: I only have 4,357 months left to live. I'll give you a minute to let that sink in.

Now imagine how my parents felt? Yeah. I'll give you a second sink in session.

Maybe now you can all appreciate why I live every day like it's my 13,2524th to last. That's some perspective for you.

Mmmm... Baseball...

It's happening. The jonesing has begun.

Yeah, that's a custom made spoon rest. It was hand made for me by my fiancée. I think you can understand why I put a ring on her finger.

Go Dodgers!!

This isn't a picture I took today, but I thought it should be remembered. I saw a homeless woman painting this on the wall one day down in the pedway on my way to work several months ago. Since then I look at it every day as I pass by. It's sort of a checkpoint for me. Not any more though. On my way home from work today, someone finally cleaned it off the wall. It will be missed.

Changing job responsibilities

So let me break this down for you. It is inevitable that this copier will jam on you. When that happens, you will be required to try to unjam it. When you fail at that, and you will fail, here's what you do.

But I was unable to make this any blurrier. I will try harder in the future.

In case you were wondering, yes, making a panorama on the iPhone can cause severe headaches. Also, they don't look nearly as good as you would like.

Night shot

I don't know if it's my iPhone's camera, or if the world is really ending. You make the call.

I need to get out more

I was also up way to early for this one.

One day...

I hope to have my own home theater that is 3D capable. So far, I've got some glasses...

Not what I wanted.

I was hoping that one of the smaller buildings would be buried by snow this morning. Color me disappointed.

-- Posted From My iPhone which easily towers over the pathetic amount of snow on the ground.

Monday, February 08, 2010

Call me skeptical.

So, this is what it looked like at the end of the work day. Supposedly, we're going to get about a foot of snow overnight. I'll take a picture from the same place tomorrow morning. It should look pretty similar according to me.

Happy Souper Boull

And thanks to everyone that didn't point out the huge, throbbing zit just above my right eye. May you always be that classy.

I guess the CTA now requires you to carry your own rotary phone if you need assistance.

Mixed feelings.

If this happened to be the only thing on my modeling résumé, I don't know how happy I'd be about that.

Can you believe it?

This leg has only been broken for 7 1/2 months! The bone wouldn't fuse. This picture is taken 3 1/2 weeks removed from surgery. I'm not saying that sitting like this and twitching your foot all day had anything to do with the slow healing. (I'm thinking it, I'm just not saying it.)
