new office puppy

Oakley, CA

One of the departments across the hall brought this cute girl in today and we all enjoyed her. Her mom is a chocolate lab (pure breed) and her dad is a golden retriever (pure breed) who evidently is really good at jumping fences and getting some action before being sent back to his pen. The fur as soooo soft.

my limo

Antioch, CA

I'm a real paranoid passenger and I usually won't let others drive, but when I'm out with Tom doing a job...I am totally at ease in this thing. I literally have to leap to get in it, but once inside I feel fine and I can relax with Tom's driving.

Insert Evil Scientist Laugh Here

Oakley, CA

We have a new policy at work where every toy gets bleach cleaned now. Because I was getting a high and my eyes were burning I asked for a mask, gloves and eye protection. I was sent all of that plus new gloves and a gown today. One of my co-workers suggested I didn't need to worry about a Halloween costume now. After seeing a movie this weekend about evil scientists I felt it was a role I could easily assume now that I knew the ins and outs of the mad scientist business. And now I've got the uniform for it.

drip drop rock

Oakley, CA

There is this nice waterfall on a street near my office. Every time I drive by it I'm tempted to put a bar of soap in the fountain and then come back a few hours later and see how much it looks like a rabid dog.

just sean

Antioch, CA

My "Vision of Sean" poster got ripped during the move. So last night I sat down and made out a new one. Somethings got taken off and somethings got added. These reflect the things in my life that I am or would like to become. It's almost a goals and accomplishments kind of poster. After the picture was taken I added two more to the "To Be" string: "Taking pictures" and "writing." It's been a long while since I wrote anything good.

Twofer Sunday - Same Sun 10 minutes apart

Oakland CA

I went to a religious lecture tonight that was supposed to start at 7 PM. So I rushed there in time to take pictures across the parking lot from the lecture. I then went to the lecture and the organizers were running late so about 7:05 I went back out side and took some more pictures. What I love most in the first one is how the sun is shining through the buildings. What I love most about the second building is the colors of pink on the horizon.

(BTC to be updated later)

(Tomorrow we return to none sunset pictures.)

Twofer Saturday - S cloud sunset and pink palms

Fremont, CA

Yes Yes, I know that there are power lines in the bloody picture up top. I was running late for mt date so I didn't have time to frame it right.

Yes Yes I know, this is my third sunset picture in a row. Don't worry, Monday will go back to being mundane pictures.

And the flag still waved

Antioch, CA

I went to a football game tonight for Antioch High School and this girl sang the national anthem. This is one of two videos I recorded, the other being the female field goal kicker the Antioch High has that was way better than the male field goal kicker Ygnatio Valley had. Unfortunately that video sucked so you get this one.

Aye Matey, thar she settles over them thar busses

traffic shot

Walnut Creek, CA

I was stuck in traffic and kept trying to get the sun to line up with trees, but after each light cycle, I'd move just enough to be on either the right or left side of the trees with the sun. I tried this like 8 times. Oh well. Maybe I'll have better luck tomorrow.

settling down

Antioch, CA

I found out my ex-fiancee is engaged. I used several pain killers and antacids to settle my stomach down.

Antioch, CA

This is my 5th attempt at Stats. The first two times I got a W (both related to mom dying issues). The third time I got a F. This last time I got a D-. However as I'm going through this 5th attempt I'm happy to anounce that I am one of 6 people with an A in the class. Go me.

Frog on a wall

I was on my way to In N Out tonight to celebrate how well I think I did on my Stats test when I saw this frog on the outside wall of the house. I knew we had about 10 bluebelly lizards, but I didn't know we had frogs in the front yard as well. I took about 8 pictures of him with the flash so now I'm sure he's a blind frog. The second picture is just so you can get a perspective of how high up he is from the sidewalk on the wall.
