01/20: MIRROR

Posted on Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

Dave!Uh oh...

The next two weeks are going to be nothing but work, which presents a problem for this blog. With nothing interesting going on that I can write about, what happens to Blogography? I could go on hiatus, but odds are I'd never come back. I suppose I could scour the internets for YouTube videos and other crap to post, but that's not really me. So what to do?

Looks like it's going to be the TWENTY/TWENTY meme! Every day for twenty days you get a word, and it's up to you to post something related to the word. It's not the most imaginative way to blog, but at least it's a starting point at a time when I don't have anything.

Today's word is MIRROR!

For which I'm going to post a picture I took of myself when I was in Reykjavik on my way to Stockholm on September 25th, 2003. I had been traveling and working for five solid days, and was looking a total mess (I nearly had to check those bags under my eyes at the airport). I took this photo so I could show my girlfriend what she wasn't missing...

Little did I know, things would get even worse the next night in Stockholm when I would cut my chin open in a tragic karaoke accident. Can't. Catch. A. Break.

In other news, I installed iOS version 4 on my iPhone. I can't say that it makes a lot of difference since I've got an older iPhone 3GS, but the ability to combine apps into folders makes it well worth the time to upgrade. I feel at least 223% more organized now. What more could you want in a phone? Well, except to be able to make phone calls, of course.

    Kinda what Blogography is, eh?

    I upgraded, too, for my 3Gs, and I keep getting kicked out of email. I also don’t know why all my email accounts are on there twice now. Hmmm.

    I do like that Pandora keeps playing while I do other things, and the zoom feature on the camera will be nice when my children are filthy, and I want to take a picture of them, but I don’t want to get very close to them. That happens a lot.

    You look marvelous – and the same as NOW, which means you haven’t aged, ya bastard. 🙂

    The mirror has two faces!

  5. Random iOS 4 thoughts in no order of relevance. Seems faster to me in general; I have a 6 month old 3GS. Camera shutter lightning fast now. Wallpaper on the home screen! (but that is more annoying than I thought it would be so I’m using a really dark photo of my own for it) Folders are insanely handy and I’m now trimming everything down to a manageable number of screens. Seems to sync an awful lot faster with iTunes 9.2 on my MBP.

    Are you upgrading to the iPhone 4? My contract isn’t up until 2011, and they let me upgrade for the reduced cost.

      Yeah… my fantasy of escaping from AT&T just isn’t going to be in the cards. Verizon is on a CDMA network I can’t use internationally (even if Apple supported it)… Sprint and T-Mobile get worse reviews than AT&T in smaller cities (like where I reside). Oh well. 🙁

  7. Finn says:

    Surely your girlfriend was missing YOU, right?

  8. Katharine says:

    I would love it if I looked that good when I look like a total mess. *shakes fist*
