Gung Hay Fat Choy

Saturday I went to the Golden Dragon parade celebrating Chinese New Year with some friends, and my pictures are up. I’m really happy with how these came out, since this is the first time I went shooting with my giant (70-300mm) lens and did manual focus the entire time. I will say, this is the ...

The Last Cliché of 2007

A few New Year’s Resolutions, because if I post them somewhere, maybe I’ll actually live up to them: 1. Continue to lose weight. Have lost: 33 lbs (net; had lost 35 but gained back 2 lbs stuffing my face with Waffle House and other assorted goodies over the holidays). To lose: 47 lbs. Mark my ...

Merry Christmas

I don’t know what makes me laugh more, the cat’s sour look or the hand holding on the sad little Santa hat.

Noted

I think I’m the only person who’s glad the Fourth of July falls on a Wednesday this year. I could use the rest.

Well, That’s One Way To Deal With The Fourth Falling On A Wednesday

Apparently, whoever sets off the Fourth of July fireworks in the big public park near where I live decided that since the Fourth was on a Wednesday this year, they wanted to do the fireworks on a more convenient day. So they’re doing them right now. They’ve been booming away for about the last 20 ...

26

I joked after what happened last year on my birthday that for my 26th birthday I was going to spend the entire day hiding inside, not doing anything. Turns out I wasn’t kidding. Luckily, I’ve made it through the day so far without hurting anything new, so I’m hoping this is a good sign of ...
