A Quick Preview

I went to the L.A. Pride Parade in West Hollywood today and took a bajillion pictures, which it’ll probably take me a solid couple days to upload. I’ll be putting up a slideshow when I’m done. In the meantime, please enjoy this preview of things to come:

Shameless Bragging 4

I got tossed a research project, which is very good for the pocketbook but not so good for having time to do much else. So instead, it’s time for a little shameless bragging in photographic form. Left: January 27, 2007, about three weeks before I finally snapped and decided to do something about my weight. ...

Vegas! 2

Special thanks must go out to Laz and his lovely wife Christin for haranguing me into getting the fuck out of Los Angeles for a couple of days, and letting me crash on the couch in their room at the Encore so my broke ass wouldn’t have to shell out for a hotel room. I ...

Apropos Of Nothing

While getting some other photos off my camera, I found a few I’d forgotten that I’d taken, including this extreme closeup of Chaplin’s paw that I thought turned out pretty well: I was so amused to find all his paws sticking out from under the blanket while he was napping.

Quack

I went to take the trash out when I came back from my swim at the gym today, and as I walked past my apartment complex’s pool, I was a little surprised to see a pair of ducks swimming around: I’ve seen seagulls in there before, which didn’t seem that unusual since I’m only about ...

Duly Noted 3

Today, February 25th, 2009, I got glasses for the first time in my life. I outlasted my dad (who got glasses when he was somewhere around 5 or so) by about 22 years. I was outlasted by my mother (who got glasses when she was 35) by 7 years. Also: I am now officially a ...

Conehead 2

Chaplin and his hilariously sad cone/satellite dish collar, critiquing my queue of BSG episodes.

Guess Who’s Finally Home

This time, they actually let me spring him as promised. I don’t know who’s happier, me or him. He’s doing fairly okay – I have to keep a close eye on him to make sure he’s not trying to lick his stitches or chew off his fentanyl patch (being held on by the blue bandage ...

A Week Late… 2

A few of my better photos from my ridiculously good seats watching the poor old Cubbies lose to the Dodgers a week ago: Thanks to my friend Matty Lew, who generously subsidized my ticket, and blatantly lied to me about the extent to which he was doing so because he knew I would have been ...

Flickr Fun 2

So Flickr has a feature wherein you can compare the statistics of all your pictures, and see which ones are the most popular, see where your hits are coming from, and things of that nature. It’s pretty interesting and a fantastic way to kill time if you’re really bored. I have one photo that is ...
