A day of painting


Painting textured walls is so much harder than I thought. It took a
lot paint. It's looks so much better now and in return we got tasty
fried shrimps.

The end of an office era


I saw this office furniture mass grave on the way home from lunch. It
came out of the buildings that kaleida is redoing on main near north.
I think it used to be the old devry campus.

The powder blue and green with brown enameled metal reminds me so much
of everything in elementary school. These colors are kind of making
comeback but not the desks themselves. At one point they must have
been so modern and futuristic. Strangely, I bet the people that first
sat in them thought I'd ride a flying car to work now.

Dumpstercopia


I am not going to take a pic of a person actually eating out of it but
seriously I must witness five people a day eating out of it. If you
think about from a personal perspective it's kind of gross but when
you think about it from an environmental perspective it's great. It
takes the one mans trash is another man's treasure to the next level.

doing it in the window

Say someone in an apartment building was full on doing it in an uncurtained window for an hour. Would you look on? I almost feel like someone that obvious about it would be dissapointed if you didn't.

Swine flu and graffiti


I can't believe someone would graffiti this sign in a hospital elevator.

Work and weather


I worked from 10:30-10:30 today. When I ran back from lunch I took
this picture of the idealic weather I missed all day. Why is it that
every weekend is rainy an every Monday-wednesday is perfect?

I didn't take claritin today. I was wondering if it is what elevates
my heartbeat and gives me anxiety. It's either that or the stress
from thinking about all the nuclear Bombs possibly pointed at us in
some former soviet state. The more I think about computers and
security the more scared it makes me or nuclear bombs.

I guess it could also stem from the poor reviews of the nokia n97. I
think this means I am destined to get the new iPhone and sadly I was
hoping for something cooler which doesn't exist right now.

Tomorrow I start at 9am which is beyond too early for me. That kind of
shift in schedule is going to kill my day.

Environmental Consciousness


It's kind of ironic to use a paper cup that brags about it's
environmentally friendly properties and then stack them two high.

How many polocks does it take to get a joke?

How many polocks does it take to get a joke? Apparently more than this many. These people are protesting a play called Polish Joke which is playing at Canisius' Marie Maday Theatre on Main Street.

Here is a guy with a proud Polish American Sign at the protest

[box]By Colin Dabkowski - At its essence, "Polish Joke" is about one man's crisis of identity over his Polish heritage, his long and misguided journey away from his roots and his eventual realization that true ethnic identity is to be denied at one's ultimate peril. It is nothing less than an affirmation, if a rather long-winded one, of the importance of embracing one's own heritage.

Playwright David Ives, in his traditionally neurotic and absurdist manner, has employed a hearty helping of self-deprecation, the standard tool of ethnocentric comedies like "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." Ives' jokes - which aim to flip standard Polish jokes on their heads by placing them within Ives' self-critical narrative-don't always hit home. But what they never do is step over the line from satire and into demeaning caricature of Polish people, as has been suggested by community members, many of whom have neither seen nor read the play.

Thomas LaChiusa gives an adept comic performance as Jasiu, the conflicted protagonist, as does David Hoffmann in a variety of roles. Director Maureen Sheldon points out in her program note that she, and most of the actors - not to mention the playwright himself - are Polish.

This fact should encourage community members who have manufactured gut-reactionary outrage at what they read about the play, or merely at its provocative title, to come out and judge for themselves.

Clipboard security

I wonder if this clipbard security thing is still an issue. Is anyone using IE 6 anymore?

Remember when I used to be creative? I used to have so much fun with photoshop in the days before the non-stop programming.
