Today's Lunchtime Mishap

February 28, 2007

Yesterday's lunchtime mishap was getting a parking ticket. Today's mishap was getting pooped on by a bird. I wonder what's on the lunchtime mishap agenda for tomorrow.

Dum Dum Deed of the Day

February 27, 2007

I parked at a parking meter at lunch. I put $1 in for an hour. Walking into the restaurant, I saw the meter guy checking meters. I thought, "I'm glad I put money in the meter." When I got back to my car, I had a ticket. That's when I realized I put the money in the wrong meter. Sheesh.

Phoenix in Phebruary (aka Foenix in February)

February 26, 2007

Last week, I declared I didn't have time for writing stuff here anymore. Then I found some time. Then I found I had something to show you. I went to Phoenix for a weekend early this month and took pictures. Included are two memorials at the state capitol added since I was there last, a pyramid shaped tomb containing a multi-term governor, and some hiking pictures from Piestewa (Squaw) Peak. Enjoy!

Saints Fans, Protestors and the Intel Implosion

February 26, 2007

Shoal Creek Saloon with Saints Helmet on top
This one's for Rob. Shoal Creek Saloon is on the edge of downtown Austin. I've never been there (yet), but they appear to be Saints fans. That helmet has been up there ever since I can remember, so they haven't just jumped on the post-Katrina Saints bandwagon.
War protesters in front of the Texas state capitol
War protestors are not an uncommon sight around the Texas Capitol these days.
Collapsed building shell
Yesterday, an eyesore that's marred Austin's downtown area since the tech bust was imploded to make way for a federal courthouse.
Here's a bigger photo.
Here's what it used to look like.
For even more implosion fun, watch the implosion videos from the Austin American Statesman (scroll down on the left).
