More opportunities for you to not comment.

For whatever reason the page template had no reference to the comment template, so even though I had opened the pages (Music, Camera, PC, etc…) to commenting, the functionality was not there. It’s been fixed, so …wanna make fun of the music I listen to? …got some PC or camera knowledge to impart? Bring it.

12 oz. Filet Mignon. A bottle of Malbec. Cheesecake with strawberries and raspberries. This is not going to help me lose weight. Being fat is awesome.

P.S. First post made from my iPhone. Yes, I still love it.

The Dress.

If you spent any time at all this summer with the Lovely Wife or me, you know that she has spent a good portion of it making a wedding dress for her friend and teaching mentor. And stressing about the dress. And cursing the dress. And getting really excited when she pulled off some new sewing victory, only to have her explanation of said victory fall upon my brutish, non-sewing-educated ears. Well, the dress is done. The wedding happened. It looked beautiful, and it did not split apart or burst into flames. Reception pictures here.


On Wednesday I told the Lovely Wife that she was getting a present the next day. She was sure it was going to be a book she had seen and wanted – Happier, by Tal Ben-Shahar. It was actually a MacBook. I did, however, try to please with the wrapping. Pics here.

I still love my iPhone.

So, I can take a picture with my iPhone and email it from the iPhone to a .Mac web gallery, where it will automatically be added. I can add as many galleries as I like, and have a different email for each. I could have an ACL gallery that was updated with ACL pics from ACL as I took them. For now, there’s just this.
