Fire Escape!!



Howdy Friends,

First thing is first:  Kick-Ass was a pretty great movie.  I'd recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind a fair amount of graphic violence.

Today was a pretty good day.  I slept till 1 p.m. and still got a little less than 8 hours of sleep.  After finishing 3 cups of coffee I decided to be productive.  I went to ace hardware and bought a few things for my scooter.  I ended up fixing a broken tail light, replacing several rusty screws/bolts, I found an air leak in my carburetor which was causing my scooter to run like shit, fixed said air leak, adjusted the idle, cleaned the idle jet and main jet, checked the spark plug, then took her out for a victory lap.  She ran great and I felt like a man.

It was a good day.

Love,
Matt

Howdy Friends,

We're going to go see that movie Kick-Ass tonight!! I really look forward to seeing it even though Nick Cage sucks.  I'll let you guys know how it is tomorrow.

Old School Intercom System



Howdy Friends,

This reminds me of a video game that Shannon and I have been playing.  It's a lot of fun.

It was a long day at school.  I have to keep reminding myself that there is only a week left of classes. Then I'm done FOREVER for the next year.

Love,
Matt

Cat, Plant, Stuff, Cat, Plant, Stuff...Repeat....Forever.



Howdy Friends,

I really like the droplet of water in this one.

Today there was a reception type thing for the math majors who are graduating this quarter.  It was pretty cool to be acknowledged for the hard work that's been put into getting this degree.  It was kind of like a mini-graduation except this only took an hour.  I got a free mug  and t-shirt.  Lastly, there were only 60 bored people rather than 5,000.

This means I can sleep in on the actual graduation and not feel bad about missing it.

I love rationalizing my laziness.

Love,
Matt

Is It Plagiarism If You Steal From Yourself? More Importantly, Does It Count As A Sin?



Howdy Friends,

This post is a direct ripoff of a previous post.  I don't care.  It's late and I almost forgot (first time) to take a picture.

Also, please take the time to vote in my current (awesome) poll -->

Photo Friday: Family



Howdy Friends,

I took this at 3 a.m. last night.  Chuck and Taylor are family so I figured that this counts.

And I Complain About Math Class...



Howdy Friends,

This lady bug is the King (Queen?) of all lady bugs. It survived countless death traps. It was found in some lettuce that we purchased a little while ago. This lettuce lived in our fridge and said lady bug didn't freeze to death. It survived the trip home from the store. Not to mention the store itself. This little guy survived the stocking clerks. And the truck ride from its former home. It lived through the various machines that either picked or sorted the lettuce.

I let our lady bug friend go outside in the cold and rain.

I hope that it's okay.

Love,
Matt

Rubik's Cube Mid Flight



Howdy Friends,

Today we celebrated my buddy Greg's birthday.  We watched that movie "Fido."  It was a strange and entertaining movie.  I got so excited that I decided to throw my Rubik's Cube and take a photo of it.

I love birthday parties.  I love them almost as much as getting that black background in photos.

Love,
Matt

Dart!



Howdy Friends,

Here is a photo of a dart being thrown at a dart board. I didn't leave much room for "interpretation" on this one.  I made Shannon throw a dart for 15 minutes so her efforts need to be acknowledged.

My Guitar is Emo



Howdy Friends,

I like having a completely black backround in my photos.  I'm not quite sure how I'm doing this but whatever it is, I hope I can keep it up.

I'm a Thief



Howdy Friends,

Well it turns out that I'm a thief.  I steal things.  If you don't believe me, check it out.  That is my wife's photo blog, she made it 115 days.  If you look through it you'll find that this photo isn't the only one stolen.  There is this. And this (okokokok I didn't steal this one, I just really like it).  Good Times.

Love,

Creepy Snake Cat Eye Things



Howdy Friends,

I always get a little creeped out when cat eyes do that.  Also, if you check out Taylor's (white cat) mouth you can see just a little bit of drool.  She's a very special cat.

Howdy Friends,

Well it's time to come clean.  I own a Stella Scooter.  It is beautiful and I love it.  I've had it for about a year.  I only regret not getting it out in the open right away.
