Straight from the icemaker!  

Just kidding. Actually, the look on my face is from concentrating on getting the shot right; the only place I could find in the house to get a good spot for the camera was on a Dr. Pepper box on the kitchen counter (such are the little challenges of my particular sitch). I could have just held it up like most people but I was also testing the camera's timing feature. Even after some tweaking in IrfanView it's slightly out of focus but, hey, I only got the thing two days ago. ;)

Frosty the Hepcat

So that's me (I know y'all were itching to see me :Þ). I went out thursday night to meet j03j03 and we had a great time gabbing. It's a pleasure to meet someone with whom you have a quick feeling of comfort. We talked practically incessantly for four hours, hitting upon topics mostly in the upper echelons of philosophical esoterica; but I think it was a good start. I think we both share a view that life is a great journey replete with many curves and branchs well worth the effort. I had wanted to get a lot of shots in the `hood with my new camera that night but couldn't tear myself away from our conv for much more than going back to the bar; there will be plenty of opportunities for pictures later.

Considering how much I drank and smoked (I haven't been out much this winter and tend to binge when I do), I'm surprised I didn't wake up yesterday with a sore throat and a hangover; but I feel great. I even got in some quality time with a couple of my other friends after hours. Altogether a satisfying evening. Tonight I stayed in and tried my meager skills at taking the above pic, transfering it to the desktop `puter, and FTPing it to my webspace. Now for the real test-I hope this works.

I had about six rum-n-cokes but it was over a four hour period and I ate during that time so my stomach also had some soft tacos to work on. Sleep? What's sleep? As soon as I got home I heard the siren song of my computer and jumped back on the surfboard for a few more hours. It's normal for me to sleep in the daytime so I usually get over any alcohol use before hitting it; I very rarely get drunk enough to fall out of my chair (knocking on wood).

Come on, you gotta tell me. Can JO3 hold his liquor, or were you doing laps around him?

Re: lifecycle
I don't blame you, especially if your goal was intellectual stimulation.

Hey, wow. Somebody's commenting on my LJ again! *blush*

j03j03 only came for the chix (don't tell his wife). I was the one drinking like a frog.
