Tech support.
Another delightfully un-exciting picture for today. I do computer tech support on the side sometimes, which is good for extra income but it does cut into my creative time. This is Patrick, my happy customer for tonight.
AliThinks 12 years ago
I LOVE your January 8 photo! Well done!

And I'll add that Patrick likes white beer (Or maybe you do, and you edited in the beer?). Has he tried Hoegaarden?
stevelyon PRO 12 years ago
The three of us (Patrick, myself, and his sister - not pictured) are all fans of the Blue Moon. I have tried Hoegaarden and while I like it, it seems to be rather hard to find around here. Minnesota has some rather odd liquor laws, which make it hard to find good microbrew.

You'd never know it by looking at these photos, but I used to have a job color correcting photos in Photoshop.

Dead cones.
I volunteered to chase down stray cones for a good cause today, a Teen Street Survival course put on by the BMW club I'm in. It was only 10˚ F out there today, so the cones shattered when the kids ran 'em over; I stopped counting fatalities at 40. The carnage filled the trunk of my car by the end of the day.

The kids had fun and seemed to learn a lot, so if it keeps even one of them from getting into an accident, it was worth it.

'65 Pontiac GTO
I used to have about 300 Hot Wheels cars when I was a kid. When I was about 15 I gave them all away to a little kid down the street who didn't have many toys, but now I'm wishing I'd kept a couple of the nicer ones.

I've recently started buying a few that catch my eye whenever I'm poking around in Target. This one is one of my favorites.
AliThinks 12 years ago
That is a cool car. And regarding your previous photo, the name of the team reminds me of that movie -- was it Johnny Dangerously? -- with Michael Keaton. There was a character who said stuff like "fargin' bastiges!" "Icehole" was one of his insults.

This one is pretty huge at its original size. Not technically perfect, but I think it works nicely. Check out the full size version if you dare.

The view is from the Lutsen ski lodge in Lutsen, Minnesota with Lake Superior in the background. I spent the weekend up there with no WiFi (gasp!) but managed to take almost 400 photos anyway, even if I couldn't post them.
