Elephant seals in La Jolla, CA.

Well, OK then. (Owens Valley, CA)


Friends don't let friends photograph drunk.

An old intro geology text I picked up a few months ago, called "The World's Foundations"...each chapter opens with a quote from the Bible.

Leaving town.

I got my second costume idea last night, and I'll be going as "The Wikipedia". The costume consists of two white shirts, one long-sleeved and one short-sleeved, a pair of white pants I found at an indian store here in town, and a bunch of sharpies. I found a few that have little rings on them, and I'll hang them off various points of my costume, and I'll attach the full-sized ones by rubber bands. People can write whatever they want all over me. Pretty cool, huh?

My other costume idea.

Making my "hasidic bling" for my Hebrew Hammer costume. Those are drafting triangles and I'm painting them silver with acrylic.

The last thing to do: connect the battery's power cable.

New battery is in--it's a little smaller than the old one.

A closer look at the battery and the "motherboard".

A peek inside: the hard drive is encased in blue, vaguely sticky rubber. The black thingy at the left is the battery. The hard drive is connected to the case with another fragile brown ribbon cable, so I didn't even disconnect it.

Phoebe needed help replacing her iPod battery. Here's what it looks like open. Note the fragile brown ribbon cable connecting the two halves.

GSA deserted.

There's no way I can explain this one.

Salt Lake City, this Saturday. Too bad that Peruvian restaurant was closed....

Huh. Losering is back.
