it was down about 10 minutes. good thing i didn’t need to buy anything!
as is usual, the leaves are looking awesome this year as the chlorophyll drains for their impending end of life. i love this time of year just for this reason. the few weeks of being able to drive around this side of tennessee are the most enjoyable.
last friday, i snapped a few shots of some of the dying leaves. always a fun challenge to find them. (note: you aren’t allowed to take pictures of the trees in the west town mall parking lot.)
i have a few more things i’d like to post, but this photo caught my attention as a perfect example of guy spacing, and i decided to quick post it.
any guy who looks at this photo will immediate think to themselves, “makes sense.” why? proper guy buffer among all the men.
when chairs are normally set up in a room for meetings, they are put as close as they can be to each other to maximize the seating space. however, this presents a potential uncomfortable condition for guys sitting next to each other. it is the same as the seats in coach on any commercial flight. tight for everyone, especially guys.
however, you could put a woman in between each of the first four gents (from the left), and they wouldn’t mind. put a guy in any of those three chairs and squirming will commence. this is clearly shown as hillary sitting between admiral mullen and the vice president. ignoring the extended spacing between her and the vp, the space between the her and the admiral is inconsequential.
guys need guy spacing. we don’t mind touching women so much, but we do mind touching other men. this picture is the epitome of that principle. lesson to be taken: please space the chairs out a little. please?

after having my site hacked by some kid with downloaded program, i’ve gotten things back up. backups are now in play to avoid the confusion from last time. i was able to get my data back thanks to google reader. it was a lot of cut and paste, but it was all i had. i should have been backups long ago. it really only takes once of losing your data to start the habit.
so, now with the latest wordpress installed, i have some catching up to do.
this is finally a very good snow. this is what winter is all about. the roads are a cold slush underneath a few (several?) inches of snow. and it’s still snowing at this point. this calls for some coffee and breakfast. then work…from mock manor. (if i won’t spend two hours for work lunches, there’s no way i’m wasting time driving with those nuts who creep along in the “first snow they’ve ever seen!”)
