Hey all, sorry for the lack of posts. Fall term is coming to a close, and business abounds. I'm also getting over a cold now. But enough excuses, let's talk about stuff. I must admit, it's easy to start blogging, less easy to continue. It's irking me that I can't remember where I heard this, but supposedly some 60% or so blogs stop being updated after a few months (also, 95% of statistics are made up on the spot). Yeah, okay I totally made those numbers up and I think they're wrong, but the point is, blogging gets more and more difficult as you progress. It's like a video game! It was easy at the beginning when everything was new; I could talk about anything that happened. Now that life is a bit more busy and a bit more routine, content doesn't pop out as easily as it did before (all the more respect for the returning bloggers!). Anyhow, I'll just have to be more creative.
So, random thought: why is Seinfeld called "a show about nothing"? It's not really about nothing. Nothing is about nothing. This post isn't about nothing. But I guess my post last week was about nothing... (more correctly: it was nothing). By the way, nothing is an interesting word. Check out this funny syllogism I found on wikipedia:
- A ham sandwich is better than nothing
- Nothing is better than eternal happiness
- Therefore, a ham sandwich is better than eternal happiness
Words to live by.
Adventure 25: Frosty
So on my way to work this morning, I noticed the frost that has been covering the grass for the past few days. It's kind of nice. Here's some more shiny pictures:
Some nice atmospheric perspective going on

Here's my bike, which is frosty, too.
It's almost like snow!
Adventure 26: Dark again
And what better way to follow up sunny pics than with some dark ones?
Sayles and that other building... and Lockerby the crane!

This looks kind of like a bicycle... and three tomatoes?

Adventure 27: Dying in the CMC
Usually I die of math homework at the CMC, but yesterday, I died of poisonous gases. I was in the CMC all alone, wondering why no one was there. Then all of a sudden, these little units on the walls started making a "pshhhhhhhhhh" sort of noise, and I became aware that they must be poisonous gas emitting units. So I had to fall out of my chair and die.
The unsuspecting victim...
Everything... going... white...
Adventure 28: Final Drawing
I've been working on my final drawing for Obs Draw over the last few days. It's a pen-hatched drawing. I set up the still-life with stuffed animals of various people on my floor (Jimmy, Terry, and Mara). There it is with the still life at a pretty much done phase.
Busy, busy, busy. There's probably other things I could talk about but I don't remember them now Well, time to go. See ya
