Evil faxer of summer’s past


“Hey I’ll get it” Mike said as he answered the phone at our new CRESH office in sioux falls back in the summer of 2005. And as he answered the phone his face contorted into the shape one might form upon receiving a wet willy.

The cause of this facial contortion was some idiot constantly sending faxes to our main office line.  I’m not saying someone who accidentally sends a fax to the wrong number is an idiot.  I am however going to say that if you send faxes at random times of the day, to the same number, and never realize that whoever you are faxing is not getting your faxes, you probably should look at the importance of your faxing.
This became irritating over time.  In our excitement to see Batman Begins, we’d begun watching lots of old Christian Bale movies.  This lead to watching American Psycho a few times.  Which lead to an obsession of business card quality, and feeding cats to machines.  Naturally the following image is what we decided to reply with every time someone attempted to fax our voice line.

Top Gear Series 13


It has begun.  I haven’t watched it yet, and BBC America probably won’t be playing them until at least september[citation needed], but here is the advert for the series.

Top Gear Top Picks


Last week Andrea, Traci, and Barb came to drop off Sharla’s new car and hang around for a bit. I lent Andrea some how I met your mother dvds to give her and traci something to watch when bored, and during our bored time Andrea and I watched the Top Gear Vietnam, Botswana and Lorry challenges. This lead to me thinking, what would the best “must see” top gear episodes be to recommend newcomers watch.

First and most obvious are the Vietnam, and Botswana challenges.

After that what comes to mind are the “Best Road in the World” vacation, and the second “Turn cars into boats” challenge.

Which other memorable episodes am I missing?

(I am by no means saying that what I’ve listed are the only good top gear episodes).

For those who have no idea what Top Gear is:

Wedding v. Initial Pictures


I’m actually pretty impressed at how streamlined you can go from RAW to online album of jpegs with picasa. This is just a chunk of the pictures from the wedding/honeymoon. We haven’t even met with the photographer again since we’ve gotten back, everything pre-honeymoon in the album was taken by Jay.

A quick message (from captivity)


Day 1 in captivity.

I’m alive and well. Trying to get out a quick message to those who may be worried while I have the opportunity.

It is different in captivity, in contrast to what one may expect, it is much more calm and friendly compared to the few days prior to capture. Things are oddly cordial and affectionate, this may be a clever ruse…

Viewing Canon .CR2 RAW thumbnails


Just saving a link for myself and putting another way to find it via google for something I found useful this weekend.  Canon makes a driver so that you can easily add thumbnail support for their file format in windows xp and windows vista.

Best shower idea ever


I’m fairly sure I’d be immediately shot down, but with any luck JT will manage this.

Hot & Cold


Another song stuck in my head, this time with an awesome accent.

Mmmmm v. The Smell of Spring


And no, it isn’t the smell of flowers or mowed lawns or any of that rubbish. The smell of spring is the same as the smell of summer and fall: grilling.

Unfortunately(for her) my fiance is at her parents and is missing out on this delicious new york strip. Its alright though, I picked up a friend to keep me company tonight :)
