12 of 12 – January 2010

I took a few pictures today, not quite 12… 6 to be exact. I wrote 2 other posts last night however, so that will have to do!

Blog is Fixed!

I’ve noticed for quite a while that the main page of the blog was showing up oddly.  I finally took the 15 minutes to track it down today.  It was a missing </div> tag.  Go figure.

Where is the love for this blog?  I know I haven’t been to loving to the Handstands Across America blog lately, but I haven’t been traveling anywhere new lately.  We do have some handstands coming up in San Antonio, Texas soon so watch out for those.  Also, Saturday is a 12 of 12!

April 2009 "12 of 12"

April’s 12 of 12 was on Easter Sunday. I mostly spent the day cleaning, and hanging out. It was a nice and sunny day, although it was slightly chilly at the same time. My cell phone failed on me and the pictures I did take didn’t save correctly. This means no picture from playing tennis around noon, and no picture of Dan I jamming around after dinner. In any case, here is my official 12 of 12 for April. It was created using a new php script I just wrote!

10:10am | Breakfast [Flickr]
Mom was so nice to have made breakfast and left it for us lazy kids who slept in!

11:17am | Dad and “Kitty” [Flickr]
They have a understanding.

1:16pm | A well used piece of plastic. [Flickr]
I attempted to organize my electronics using this dresser because I have them scattered all over the place!

3:37pm | Grapes, a healthy snack. [Flickr]

4:35pm | Catnap [Flickr]
It definitely seemed like this would be a good idea, but I never got a chance to take one.

4:50pm | Dirty Car? [Flickr]
Today was overall cleaning day, and car cleaning was not left out.

7:27pm | Sunday Potluck [Flickr]
The food is always delicious and bountiful. It is always a highlight of the week 🙂

7:29pm | Running away from the camera [Flickr]
“J” wanted to run away from the camera, and thoroughly like this game. He didn’t like the idea not being able to play with the camera himself though.

7:32pm | Dan and Conor [Flickr]
They are always up to something.

8:17pm | Light games [Flickr]
Dan shows his perfected skills of light painting after dinner.

8:24pm | “Kids” [Flickr]
Here are most all of the kids of the Sunday potlucks. Lots of fun.

10:08pm | On the Bluetooth for a late call [Flickr]
I found my Bluetooth headset today while cleaning and put it to go use!

March 2009 – 12 of 12 – Blacksburg, VA to Greenville, SC

Well, I woke up on an air matress, in a house where the owner’s girlfriend ran the car through the garage the night before… Didn’t get a picture til I got to work though, cause I forgot it was the 12th! I didn’t keep track of exact times the pictures were taken… Not really important I suppose, because I’m making this a “12 on 12”.

Zach and I worked together ALL morning on Project Schedules

Went for a Business lunch in his pimped out KIA

Panera was Delicious. Got the Smokehouse Turkey Panini and a Asian Sesame Chicken Salad

Jared went running in the office in the afternoon

Monkeys and monsters were held captive at my desk for the day, thanks to the previous tenant

Chick-fil-a for dinner on the way out of Christiansburg

Driving my boat full of my bed and many other things (cause I’m moving soon!)

I-74 and I-77 Junction (I chose I-77)

Mountain Dew to the rescue for the 270 mile drive

Driving on I-485 (which apparently not a road, even on google maps right now)

Welcome to South Carolina, wee!

I have made it, time to move in with my dresser and backpack!

Successful day. “12 on 12”. Done.

Don’t forget to check out Brian’s and Mike’s… They probably did theirs too! (or will post tomorrow)

February 2009 – 12 of 12 (but took my time getting it posted)

So “12 of 12” is a creepy thing where someone takes 12 pictures throughout the day, on the 12th day of the month, in order to share what happens from their point of view. It’s kind of like real world, on the local cable access station… Anyways, I know I find it amusing to check out others, so hopefully you’ll be amused as well. Here are 2 people I know that did one as well…

Uri’s 12 of 12
Mike’s 12 of 12

And here is mine:

(2)7:15am, Avoid the “traffic jams” in the bathroom.

(3)10:00am, Working is hard when you have 68 degree weather in February just outside that window.

(4)12:15pm Get out for lunch, go to Wal-Mart, buy some Eggplant, Onions, Potatoes, Tomatoes… Going to make curried eggplant for the first time

(5)3pm, Keep on workin.

(9)6:45pm, Really, I am cooking!

(10)7:20pm, enjoying a Sierra Nevada with dinner.
