I'll put a house on ConnectiCAT Avenue

I found a bunch of negatives that I took with my 110 camera when I was a kid. The prints were lost long ago, so I'm scanning them to see what they are of. Here's my grandmother playing Monopoly with the cat circa 1984.

More Time Travel

In an alternate time line, Chris Freeman from 2009 jammed with Chris Freeman from 1995. Proof coming soon. Here I am practicing for the jam session.

This series will be up at Scrap Gallery next month and they said I could put up to six pieces in the show, so I am trying to bang out a few more before the deadline.

Scrabble for Pizza

Anne and I have been playing online Scrabble for pizza because she figured out that you can order a pizza online for someone who lives on the other side of the country. I won the last game... who else will challenge me?!?!

Officially a crotchety old man

So the other day I was using this Seal-It Brand packing tape:

It is really bad. It is too thin and tears and you end up wasting half the roll. Anyway, you may notice there is an email address on the roll. I got so frustrated that I sent an email to the Seal-It company. Here is the email:

"I am very unhappy with the quality of the Seal It brand packing tape. It does not unroll easily and it tears as I am using it, thus causing me to waste much of the tape as I have to peel it back around to compensate for the tear. I have been cursing your product since I bought it. I got so frustrated with your tape that I couldn't even finish the roll. I went out and bought a roll of Scotch to finish my packing needs. Their product comes off the roll easily and does not tear. If I had known how terrible your product was, I would have bought Scotch in the first place. Therefore, I believe you owe me a roll of Scotch brand packing tape. Please mail this to me. My address is below."

As soon as I sent it, I thought it was really a dumb thing to do and why am I wasting my time worrying about tape? Then I forgot about the whole thing, because I wasn't really that mad about the tape.

Then a few days later I got an email reply from the company, which I was too embarrassed to read because it was pretty dumb to get so upset about tape.

Then a few days later this free tape arrived at my doorstep:

More hanging out with Dan's band

Tagging along with Dan and his friends means I get to be a tourist in Portland again. I don't go to Powell's or Voodoo Doughnut much normally.

Dan and his band (Love is Chemicals) came through Portland on tour.

Miraculous Initials in Hair

These two hairs stuck to the wall of my bathroom to remind me that I'm being watched over while I pee.

Tillamook Cheese Factory

Their "38 flavor ice cream tour" means they have 38 flavors of ice cream to sell you. Lame.
