This summer I’m getting into the “campfire cooking” a little bit, though mostly it involves me trying to roast hot dogs or bake potatoes. My biggest undertaking so far has been a recipe for mac n cheese in a dutch oven, which is another story in itself.
Most of these times I find that I have the fire to myself, so I get to do whatever I want, whether its put as much wood as I’d like, or cook/toast anything I prefer to eat. On one such evening, I decided to snap the two hot dogs I had over the fire
I use Hebrew National as I don’t eat pork, and the spit was a $2.99, 4-foot length I found at Wal-Mart. It’s real handy so you don’t have to be right next to the fire, I recommend a long one if you’re out at the fire frequently.
Otherwise, came out great. The fat from the hot dog crusted and toasted nicely, and the both hot dogs tasted wonderful.
This was something that was a long time coming. According to my Things app, I’ve had the idea of “putting Sheena from Tales of Symphonia on a bike” since the beginning of 2010. Glad to finally have it see the light of day.
I had real fun with this one in particular, especially with the background and setting up this nighttime “urban” ambience. City was a little tricky but I finally tweaked it to give it that night glow I wanted.

This was an…interesting idea to say the least. I’m just glad Christina put up with me on this one.
Basically I had this idea of an Alice in Wonderland scenario, except it was someone from an older period falling into a modern or sci-fi cyberpunk setting (neo Tokyo, etc). This was one of the first times I used stock photos for the background, and had a ton of fun coloring this together. Basically the girl in the middle is getting a good helping of the modern conveniences, along with meeting some cool peeps.
It was supposed to evolve into a story, and I had plans for this character to be actually decent at playing arcade games. I didn’t quite get further into the plot beyond that, though.

When I was going into West Town Mall tonight, I snapped this picture because the trash can puzzled me. Not so much that it was packed full to the brim, but how the people who did add trash anyway positioned their cups. I haven’t seen anything like it, considering how much nonsense I have to put up with people living here since I started going to college in 2005. So yes, this photo was warranted, to show that rare instance where East Tennessean residents actually had some care for their surroundings.
