The best thing I think I’ve come across in a long time.
So the camera’s neat. I’ll probably have to shoot a few more rolls to actually get it down. It seems like on certain rolls the film was rubbing on something in the same place (right side of frame) and most of the photos have a noticeable wear mark on them. I’m not blown away by the photos the way I wanted to be, but I’m happy with what I got.
How to be a passive aggressive asshole at a...
1. Order food. 2. Eat food. All of it. Don’t complain once. Don’t give the server any indication that anything is wrong. 3. Complain that everything was terrible at the end of the meal. State bluntly that everything was “just bad” but give no specific reasons as to what exactly was bad about it. When the server offers a suggestion that maybe complaints should have been...

And this is only week 2. Oh man.
This weekend is going to suck
Saturday I work 11am to 11pm straight through and then I’m back in at 10am on Sunday but I’m going to try to go climbing Sunday night and Monday and if I’m lucky maybe Wednesday and then holy fuck I’m at my cottage with the best people in the world for 4 whole, glorious, uninterrupted days. No internet, no TV, no cell phones. No work. I want that now, please.
Four Confirmed Dead On Everest →
At the South Summit, just before 2 p.m., Nima and Dendi came across Shah, in her red-and-white down suit emblazoned with the Canadian maple leaf. With her were Temba and Dawa Dendi. Nima and Dendi urged Shah to turn back. By that point, she wasn’t speaking, but was still signaling aggressively that she wanted to keep going up. Temba and Dawa Dendi had already been urging her to turn...
The day after climbing is the best day.
I am very aware of my shoulder and back muscles right now.
My tax return is going to be something like $1500.
New camera, climbing harness, climbing shoes. Done.
My climbing partner was right

Sometimes it’s nice. Sometimes the drunk bros shaking beer and moshing all around you gets a little worrisome, but sometimes that can be fun, too.
On the plus side, my credit card balance hasn't...
The downside being there is less than $50 in my checking account.
IRS WORKER DEAD FOR FOUR DAYS
Supervisors at the IRS’s regional complex in Lake James township are trying to determine why no one noticed that one of their employees had been sitting dead at his desk for four days before anyone asked if he was feeling all right. What did I expect from a David Foster Wallace book? I was worried that The Pale King, being a book about the IRS, might be boring but friends, here is proof...
This could be the most brilliant and/or most horrifyingly sad thing we have ever made.
Process negatives. Buy photo scanner. Hope pictures turned out. Stay tuned.

However, I just called now and it’s on. Next Monday, 7pm. I have exactly one week to stress about my lack of upper body strength.
