I’m headed home today so that I can do Mom’s Pampered Chef party. My only hope is that we do enough in sales for me to make it worth the cost of gas to drive down there. Of course, it’ll be worth it if mom gets a bunch of free stuff, too. In any case, it should be fun, and I think we’ll all have a good time.

Funeral for Edmund’s Dad
If you know Edmund and his family, please keep them in prayer. His dad died last week, and Charlene and I went to the funeral yesterday. It’s likely going to be rough for them for a while.
Edumund, we’re praying for you, dude. Keep the faith, and let us know how we can help.
Hanging with Dan
Dan and I are going up to SF tomorrow to take pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset. I’m really excited. People who know me know that I’m not a huge fan of The City, but I guess for the opportunity to shoot the Golden Gate, I’ll do it.
Adorama 100 Tips in 100 Days Part 1
I didn’t know this, but Adorama has run a series called 100 Tips in 100 Days. I haven’t gone through nearly all of them, but they look like good tips. Some of them seem a bit non-sensical, like Number 5, especially for D-SLR users, it doesn’t make sense that if you were in full manual mode, that you’d have to use exposure lock. On a D-SLR, manual mode means you are locked! Of course, this is different on a point and shoot. Exposure lock is probably a good thing in this situation.
In any case, enjoy the 100 Tips in 100 Days!
I’ve got an interview this afternoon with a consulting firm up in SF. Wish me luck…
I’ve been going through my photo albums, and looking for photos that I need to upload (I know…I know…I’m sorely behind. I haven’t done anything since Jeremy and Amy’s Babyshower.)
In any case, I came across these long lost photos from my birthday party at Tahoe from earlier this year. I don’t know why the didn’t get uploaded. Lame, I know. But here they are.
Elaine’s Birthday Party Tonight
My future sister-in-law, Elaine is having a birthday party tonight at her place. I’m still sick, so we’ll see how far I make it into the night. Ugh. I hate being sick.
I’m sick, and it’s no fun. I haven’t been sick in a long time. Time to down lots and lots of Airborne, and Jamba Juice Cold Busters. Yes, I know Airborne hasn’t been clinically proven to work, and I know they’ve been embroiled in a lawsuit over it. But it doesn’t matter.
I figure, if the placebo effect is good enough to make me feel better, then it’s good enough to take–even if it’s all just in my head.
Today marks the 7th anniversary of 9/11: the attacks on New York and Washington DC. I don’t think I’ll ever forget that fateful day in 2001. It all seemed surreal. But just as December 7, 1941 will live in infamy, so too will 9/11–a day where terrorism was brought to our shores and to our land. A day that has not left us the same. The day that changed everything.
The Commonly Confused Words Test
Thank you, Mr. Ruff. I took the Commonly Confused Words Test, and I didn’t do too badly. My downfall was on questions 32 and 34. Part of it was bad reading comprehension, and part was just a flat out error.
What do you get when you take the test?
Here’s the results they gave me:
