Challenge: Take a picture once a day, every day, for 365 days. I will be doing this through Instagram and my iPhone4. I’m hoping to publish this into a photo book in a year’s time, which will include haikus that will act as the photo’s commentary. Wanna do it too? Photojojo has some groovy guidelines you might find inspiring.
Halloween held a Silent Hill kind of morning in Virginia.
I pass this place every day on my way to and from work, and i want to try it one day.
I’ve been teaching one of my coworkers how to use the Adobe Creative Suite. DC has a decided lack of outlets. Potbelly’s is one of the few places with an outlet. A singular, ever-coveted outlet. That woman in the white jacket had moved in on our spot, so we had to go 3 blocks away to the only Starbucks were one could sit down.
Fall skipped October apparently. It didn’t start looking like Fall in DC until November. Does this mean that in April, we’ll still have snow on the ground?
My friend Liz had a birthday party. There’s a hidden nook in Old Town Alexandria called Medieval Madness that is about as close to a period feast as one can get without being at an SCA event. Except there was heat and we didn’t get threeks or twoks (eat with your fingers damnit!). I got picked out to be the lady for my champion fought. The staff were great, the booze was plentiful, and it was a great time. I was supposed to head straight to Gaithersburg afterwards, but i was SO beat that i decided that passing out at home was a better idea. Happy berfday Liz.
Yeah, that trip to Gaithersburg I mentioned was technically a carpool point before we rolled on to Syracuse NY for Metalcuse 2. It just so happened to be on the 5th of November, and Jesse Keen, the bassist for A Sound of Thunder, was surprisingly the only one well read enough to remember that it was a METAL festival, during the Occupy Wallstreet Movement in NY, ON Guy Fawkes Night, to remember to wear the damn mask. Come on guys, don’t you at least read comic books? How about watching silly snipped movies based on comic books?

We felt the need to stop at POS truckstop diner in Syracuse on the way home. Post Metal-Festival meals have been a great pre-9 hour drive jumpstart. Turns out the food was pretty good. They had shitty had coin operated tvs too. Ahhh, Americana. I love road tripping with these guys.
