Not quite a moblog

I finally installed phone software on my local computer (the machine that had it installed is still at Saira's house), so I thought I'd share a few of the pictures I've taken this week. I probably won't set up a cool moblog like Rachel has, but when I get a chance to sit down and do some programming, I'll quickly patch moblogging by photo email into the IAM software.

This freshly killed raccoon (by a car I think) was practically on our doorstep as we moved in. The good news is that the neighbors covered it with kitty litter to soak up the blood and it was gone almost immediately.


I think if I had a Jaguar, I'd be more careful with my parking. That said, I'm fairly certain that my monster truck is currently in the basement of a barn because of a floor collapse, so who the hell am I to judge?

This car crash was a couple blocks from our house. Thus far it's been my observation that Mexicans are much better drivers than Canadians and Americans… This is in part due to the lack of “rules” in Mexico, requiring drives to be more alert.


Apparently once you get to the BME server facility where we took this photo, the only way the elevator goes is down (although there are floors above), no matter what button you push.

Jon actually gets the credit for noticing this — if this is “Turkish Coffee”, why is there a Mexican dude in a sombrero on it? Or did they just want to knock off Juan Valdez as a universal symbol for coffee, so they mixed and matched Latino culture a bit?


This winter coming up I'd like to build a new truck… I had plans for a MkII long ago, but I'm currently leaning toward building something a bit more like a monster truck mated with a military sports car, if such a thing could exist!

The only thing that sucks is that the capture chip in the phone requires a fairly long exposure. I see plenty of nice clear RAZR photos that other people take, but mine are all quite blurry. I have pretty constant tremors and shaking so it's hard for me to hold the phone steady enough for its needs…

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
