St John's Church. Nice job on the wreaths, Dad. Posted by Hello

Note to self: Next time you stop to take a photo like this behind a truck stop on Christmas Eve and the trucker comes out and when you mention something stupid about life on the road and he says actually he lives locally, do NOT ask the next obvious question. Posted by Hello

The tiger lost it's tail in a tug of war years later. Posted by Hello

I didn't color a picture so I missed out on the egg breakfast at some store. My brother and sister were such corporate whores. And I didn't even LIKE eggs anyway! Stupidheads! Posted by Hello


I have no comment for this but it was just too...ummm...something, not to post it. Posted by Hello

Merry Christmas, Dad! - Love, The Surgeon General. Posted by Hello

Silent Night, ok, so it's not that sweet or brooding. Posted by Hello

This is the Chapel of the seminary across the street, I had taken a sweet brooding photo the day before and tried to recreate it using my tripod so it would be clearer. The Lesson? You can't take the same photo twice. Posted by Hello

The League of Doom

I was going to call this the Hall of Fame or something but it sounded silly.

The League of Doom is WAY cooler. We should get shirts.

The Thing of the Moment's League of Doomers are those people who rise above the status of blogger or photoblogger and into the realm of those I consider, for one reason or another, to be friends.

Now put yer hankies away, ya big sniffling babies.
