See, now, this is how you enjoy the snow. Not to be outdone by that thing happening out in Vancouver, the small German town of Braunlage has increased their winter tourism #s significantly though the genius of naked sledding. Or as they say, naked sledging. Good times.
In light of yesterday's re-affirmation that the California proposition system is a dumb one, y'all need to take advantage of your enfranchised status and vote! Or just peruse the samples, and if you're feeling photo-critique-y, then contribute your expert opinion.
As public service I thought it important to post this little doozy: 10 minutes of daily boob observing prolongs male's life expectancy by 5 years. So this means that characters on the O.C. will live way longer than shlubs from Minnetonka, or do they have to be real? Tough questions demand tough answers.
Pretty soon I will be contractually unable to talk about a fair portion of my work. Which as any graduate student knows, is actually kinda a relief, since "how's your work going" isn't usually a great conversation topic for most of us.
The problem with this limitation is that I'm somewhat ill-trained for SoCal conversation. Naturally, you can't go with "man, Papelbon was awesome last night" or "what the hell was Rem-dawg talking about last night", but really most sports-related water cooler talk is out the window here, except for golf. Additionally, since it is always sunny and warm here, you can't use the weather as a conversation starter.

Speaking of creativity, here's my recent graphjam, inspired by having the Snoop/Phish song stuck in my head all day.

(1) Dundergrad. n. formed from the contraction of Dartmouth + undergrad = D'undergrad, this term refers to those individuals who exhibit the baffling combination of [poor judgement/stupidity/lack of common sense/academic superiority/wealth/disregard for expensive possessions] that is characteristic of many Dartmouth students.
(2)Umfriend. n. An individual with whom one has a sexual relationship; as in, “this is Katie, my...um...friend.” (from a discussion overheard yesterday on the bus, good times.)
Nathaniel, you've been known to critique certain photos in the past, what do you think of these? Since she's an Olympian they have drawn a bit of attention, but I have to say they're pretty artsy and certainly easy on the eyes.
