Stopped at Starbucks after the eclipse for some much needed A/C, headspace and to relax just a tad bit. Almost felt like I was on the road today; it was a real great feeling and enjoyed the outing.
Do apologize for the blurry screen, I didn’t realize I had something private on the screen until I got it ready for posting. So just had to obscure that.
When I started to help my Dad on the house today, I found this perfectly intact praying mantis out next to the wall studs. All complete, killed by the cold. We had frost last night and below freezing temperatures, so I immediately concluded it was the culprit.
This was a big mantis; for comparison to size, the wood it’s on is 4 inches across. When I had to ditch it, it did have a bit of weight to it.
While on a random IT job, I flipped off the lights in the server room to call it a day. Lo and behold I saw this wonderful projection of the power symbol off the monitor switch; so I snapped a picture before heading out. Very interesting to look at if anything.
Today was an interesting snow day. My dad borrowed my Jeep to bring my sister home from work. Mom and I shared a can of cream of chicken mushroom soup. And Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak releases this afternoon. So yes, a real interesting snow day.
Smooth sailing so far. Nearly at my destination this morning, about 15 minutes or so outside Riviera Beach. Have a bit of a deadline, but once that’s met, it’s slow and easy driving back home. I’ll be sure to let you guys know of anything interesting I see as always.
Back when I was around in the RWBY community, this Pyrrha cosplayer who’s name I don’t remember was doing this “name feature” event in a Facebook post. She’d take requests from people in the RWBY group, then pose with their name while doing a “casual Pyrrha” cosplay. The result? Something like this.
I had managed to make it into the final list to get my name featured, so this photo was one the cosplayer released in an album. I don’t remember her name, but if I recall it I’ll update the post accordingly.
While I’m getting into the hang of recording my Dawnstar lines, I grabbed this from Walmart the other day. He was pretty cheap (which is one reason I picked it up), and I could certainly use some more desk toys to decorate my workspace as I work here most of the time.
So I had some fun with him today, letting him pose with some of my recording gear on the desk. I think he’ll fit in right at home. No name as yet, though. Any suggestions?
Doing some spring cleaning, and I thought I’d show you my hard drive stash before I give them to a better home. Most of these are parts I collected when I was at ETSU, and most of them don’t matter anymore as I don’t have cases. I’ve about only kept what’s important to me, so all these extra drives are getting listed on Craigslist for extra cash.
So bye, you guys. You’ve been pretty good to me.
I’ve passed this tree numerous times on the way home from work, but have never stopped to take a proper picture. It always looks so lone and ominous, especially during the afternoons when heading back in. So I just simply decided to grab it one day, no matter how poor the quality is.
This is the result. Looks like a pretty good landmark, doesn’t it?
