Transcendental Awesumitude

Newer Older

For the International Day of Awesomeness I decided it would be awesome to finally do some full-on jumping shots at work. It's a horrid misuse of time and possibly inappropriate for the space, if one wanted to be a purist...but I think it was just awesome.

Happy International Day of Awesomeness!

    okay! what kind of pills are you taking and where can I get them? 'cause it's obviously the good stuff to get you flying this high!

    dude, that is an impressive jump! are you sure you can't levitate?

    I think this is your best jump yet! I'm assuming you took off from the chair and not the ground? If that was the ground, you've chosen the wrong profession, bro. You should be in the olympics!

    There you go spoiling the illusion of athletic ability, Kevin. Yeah, I used the chairs, but I paid for it. On top of the usual sore thighs from jumping my wrists are still killing me from a few too many bad landings.

    Still totally worth it.

    How the heck did you do this?

    @*Est--It's a matter of setting the timer, watching the little blinking light, then jumping with a muttered prayer or two that the darn thing goes off at the apex of the jump and good point in the hurried pose. For every one I post there are a lot of fails, epic fails even. At the end of it all I wind up with a few usable shots and more than a few aches and pains for my troubles.

    Still, no way I'm going to stop now. These kind of shots are just too much fun!
