We’re in Austin

Posted by: Dave In: Science|Technology|Travel

We arrived in Austin in record time (around 2 hours and 15 minutes).  Would have been faster but we hit traffic leaving Houston. Headed out to find some dinner.  Looking forward to the Maker Faire tomorrow.  I’ll try to post some photos here tomorrow and Sunday. Have a good weekend, everyone. -Dave

  • epiphenita: Like Tom Waits without the music.
  • epiphenita: Reminds me of my good friend's artwork: http://victoriacarlson.blogspot.com/2009/06/untitled.html
  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
