Just Another Photo Post

This is the track at my daughter’s junior high school. This is my son’s Halloween costume this year. A red leaf from the tree in our front yard. This grasshopper is missing a leg. This picture was taken while waiting in an emergency room a couple years ago. My son had accidentally stabbed a shard […]

Just Some Photos

Here are a few recent pictures I’ve taken. A little while ago, I ate at a local Japanese restaurant and played with my food. This is the result. The green is skins of edamame (soy beans), and the brown is soy sauce. The black is just ink from a regular pen. This is a building […]

Klingon Corn Chip

Today I tried to see my orthodontist, but the office was closed. It wasn’t a complete waste though. In the parking lot, I saw this corn chip. It reminded me of a logo or something, but I wasn’t quite sure what it was. I described it in chat to some friends, but none of them […]

Heroes TV Show (No Spoilers)

Norway Day 5 (Part 2)

On the night of day 5, I went to the Trumpet Karaoke Bar. The bartender was very friendly, and was kind enough to teach me some Norwegian phrases that came in handy. She also looked quite a bit like my sister. She even had some mannerisms that reminded me of my sister. I talked to […]

Norway Day 5 (Part 1)

Here is the overdue Norway Day 5 report. Day 5 in Norway was my last full day. I was there with a co-worker (who I’ll refer to as Rick, because that’s his name). Rick suggested that since the weather was great, we might want to leave work while there was still plenty of daylight left […]

Norway Day 5 Prequel

I’m home now. Day 5 was probably more eventful than all previous days combined. I also consumed more alcohol on day 5 than all other days combined. That was not a difficult task: I barely drank on previous days (a couple beers), day 5 was Friday, and my flight didn’t leave until after noon the […]
