Picspam!

But not much. Mostly, there’s this one:

Dinner! Again

This is perhaps only exciting to me, but I love Chinese food, and I’ve always been too afraid to make it. And of course, I’m still too afraid to actually start from scratch, but I found a frozen General Tso’s Chicken meal at the local grocery store. I got with some trepidation, because I’ve tried frozen Chinese meals before, and they have sucked. But this one is actually really good! And I did the rice myself. Aside from some unfortunate close calls at boiling over, it went well. (I am so impatient, I can hardly stand to actually stay in the kitchen while things are cooking, and rice apparently boils over in the time it takes me to get from the stove to the computer and back again.) In related news, the people who take pictures of food for menus and ads? Have my admiration, because I took about ten pictures before I got one that looked half as good as it looks in real life.

And here’s a couple of others I took a while ago.

Baylor

If you haven’t seen Baylor, it’s beautiful. I only have this one shot of it, for some reason. I should go take more. It’s even more beautiful when you compare it with the rest of Waco, which is…less beautiful. This is the oldest section of campus–the building on the right is the home of the English department.

Best.Interchange.Ever

And this is my new favorite highway interchange, between I-35E and I-635 at the north edge of Dallas. You can’t see it too well from here (it’s hard to take picture while driving, okay?), but there are so many sets of bridges. All the bridge columns are engraved with that design, with the Texas lone star on it. It’s pretty impressive.

Music! And Pictures!

Whee! I now have an embedded music player in my sidebar, playing some of my current favorite songs. Don’t worry, it won’t start automatically or keep playing annoying music if you don’t want it to. I mean, it doesn’t play annoying music at all…it only plays GOOD music. ;) So now you can easily get a sense of what I’m listening to.

In other media news, here’s some photos from our trip (click the picture to go to the appropriate flickr photoset). First a bunch of pictures of the beach, including some showing the restoration efforts still going on since Hurricane Ivan flattened the place.

And then a bunch more of my adorable cousins (well, technically, their dad is my cousin…I forget how the relationship details go). My cousin and his wife are from Pensacola, but they moved to Georgia a couple of years ago, so their girls aren’t acclimated to the beach and we had to drag them into the water. In this picture, the one on the left is Michaela, the oldest at four and a half. The two on the right, Ema and Ana, are three-year-old twins. And if you click through, you can see a few shots of baby brother Micah and mommy Beth. My hat’s off to her for doing an amazing job raising four kids under five. And they’re all incredible hams. Just sayin’.
