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.
When I went out with the Morristown BCM group today, I made this Dumpshake mascot for Sean, who’s Halo handle is his namesake. So when he was busy chatting it up with his other BCM buddies, I took his cup, drew this face then used my cup to make the head and antenna.
At the time he approved. That was enough for me, as nobody except two kids in that group actually cared for my humor or art.
How many USPS vans can you fit on a truck? Four, according to this photo.
Snapped this when I was traveling with a family member on the way to Knoxville at Exit 398, Strawberry Plains. We stopped at Burger King for onion rings.
When looking to do some Christmas shopping this season, I ran across this oddity; a trailer for the UPS trucks! I never saw one of these before, so I definitely had to grab a picture of it. I guess the mall had a lot of business this season.
I had been a fan of the game DarkStar One for quite awhile, especially since when I nabbed it as a Christmas gift one year ago. With my new computer, it’s a lot easier to play it, and I’ve progressed well, glad to say!
During this day, I decided to draw the decked out version of the ship on my teacher’s markerboard. Most of the people in the class got a kick out of it, and when another student tried to draw something else we all joked how it wasn’t a “work of art” as the other thing. Eventually my professor erased it, but it was a funny class representation.
This caught my eye; apparently one of my chemistry classmates drives a yellow Ford Focus, and has the Rebel Alliance symbol plastered near her driver’s door. I’m usually late for class and it’s a bit darker out, but I did want to grab a photo of it; to be honest, that’s the first time I’ve seen anyone have any sort of fandom on their car of this nature.
When I was taking a breather, I realized the book I grabbed (Parallel Worlds by Michio Kaku) made an interesting reflection and setup in my bedroom mirror; just like it was in a parallel world! So I snapped this quickly. I do apologize for the messy floor a bit, I hadn’t quite thought that I would be posting this. Maybe that side of the mirror the floor’s clean?
If you’re curious, here’s a shot a relative grabbed of me about a week after my parents sold a piece of property. I was storing countless machines and computers there, and I had to pack up everything and bring them home. But as I was using the garage as a graveyard, there was computers galore. I was told that I needed to get rid of some of this stuff, which I told them I would, it wouldn’t be a problem. So I slowly started to hodge-podge computers together in the garage, trying to bring whatever didn’t work to life to at least sell or show that I had a system working to keep.
It was pretty late when this was taken, so I’m kind of “meh”. I believe the system I was working on was getting reformatted to scratch.
Sorry this isn’t much of a picture, but world, meet Kira. Kira, meet world. He’s my new betta, and sits on my bookshelf above my PC. He doesn’t have a bad setup, but I do have to change his water a lot more often because of no filtration system. Still, he has a pretty good life. Much easier than keeping a bit 30-gallon tank, I will admit.
This was certainly an odd occurrence, and I was glad I was around to catch it. But just as I got home with the USS Novastar, I realized that the odometer was at 111,111. Very interesting. Despite having a crappy cell phone camera I snapped a picture for posterity. From then on I’d snap pictures if I could when they’d hit an interesting combination or a milestone.
