A Post Of Extreme Randomness

All that thinking I did for yesterday's post? Pretty much sucked me dry. As a result, you'll find nothing socially redeeming, witty or insightful here today. Instead, I present Shit On My Phone. No, you are not invited to relieve yourself on my phone. Instead, this is a collection of random pictures I have managed to accumulate on my iPhone and have done precisely nothing with. Until now.

[And yes, for those of you rolling your eyes saying damn, this is a lame excuse for a post you're right. But I worked until 9:00 last night and then drank beer so I'm not exactly a font of creativity right now. Some days you get brilliance. Other days you get, well, this.]

This is my phone's wallpaper. I shot it the day I got the phone when Beth and I were in NYC for our tenth anniversary. You remember, the time when Beth and I had a lot of fun then returned home and spent three days in the hospital with Mia? Yeah, that trip. It's actually a shot of the pillows and headboard in our hotel room.


This is a picture of a forest that I drew while excessively bored. I can't take credit for the trees. They came with the app. But those clouds? Yeah, I'm proud of those.


This is my parents' Christmas tree. No, it's not you. It was indeed leaning at about a 45 degree angle. They accidentally bought an off-kilter tree. Since they are a little off-kilter themselves, they decorated it this way.


This is a panoramic shot of our local community center pool. I cobbled it together during one of Mia's swimming lessons.


Mia has learned how to draw and then save things on my iPhone. She draws stuff for me all the time. This is my favorite. It says I Love You.


This is another drawing of Mia's. It is a self-portrait. But you knew that just by looking at it, right?


This is reason #1 why I should not be allowed near my children's toys after a long day at work.


This is reason #2.

Two ears of corn equal an impressive display, don't they?

That off-kilter Christmas tree is awesome!

Dude. What wife would not like that message on her fridge?

Dood, you have seriously ruined donuts for me, and that's just mean.

But how much do I love that tree?

Hey, I don't think this is a sorry excuse for a post at all. I love picture posts. And I love iPhones. And so this just combines the two into one, awesomely fun blog! Out of curiosity, what iPhone do you have? a 3G? I want to upgrade mine to a 3G so very badly. Simply because my camera on my iPhone sucks ass.

We're all entitled to an off day. At least you've got something to share.
I'm a bit off myself today. I'm blaming it on the fact that I attempted to drink bourbon on the rocks last night. Just bourbon. What was I thinking?

Haha that's the best fridge note ever. Until Mia can read it, that is, and then that just gets awkward fast :P

This post was like dumping out your pockets, wrapping up the contents and giving them away as christmas presents.
