The Voyage Home

April 15th, 2005 No comments

I generally hate air travel, mostly because I hate the stress of making connections, waiting out delays and lugging heavy bags from one end of O’Hare to the other. Thankfully, my trip to and from Vegas was almost completely uneventful. On the way back to Chicago, American did stick me in the next-to-last row–looking out at the rear engine–but moved me up to the front after I mentioned my short time window between connections.

Since I got back, I’ve been able to do little more than climb back into my groove, though I did manage to put together a photo album of Vegas (mostly of the Star Trek Experience. Haven’t had time to come up with pithy captions, so I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves for now. However, I will say that if you want to see what I look like drunk, check out the photo of me and the Ferengi.

This weekend, I received a belated Valentine’s Day gift from my lovely wife Vicky: a Sony Cyber-Shot 4.1 megapixel digital camera. I’d been wanting one for ages; the better to snap random images for my web site.

First order of business, after charging the batteries, was to take a few test shots.

Here’s Vicky and Hobbes on the sofa. The original image was huge and crystal clear, but I shrunk it for bandwidth’s sake.

Here’s the reverse angle. Huh, my face looks fat.

Even cooler, the thing takes movies as well. Here’s a sample. (Warning: 4 MB download.)

Neat!

Abdicating The Throne

January 31st, 2005 No comments

Last night finally brought an end to my reign as King of Digitopolis. It’s sad that I won’t see many of my fellow cast members again, but I’m certainly glad to get back my free time.

I did manage to walk away with both my pointy hat (which was originally mine, before the numbers were added) and my giant pencil. Both now adorn my office.

Here is a gallery of photos from The Phantom Tollbooth.
