cleaning up the desktop...

cooked this a while ago. pork. but i think the key to the whole meal was the fresh pineapple. what doesn't pineapple go with?

i got a two-pack habit and a motel tan.

so, i stayed in this here hotel room because i checked it out months ago and knew i could shoot out the windows down on the main intersection in downtown o'neill during the big celebration.

little did i know, they would, "fix up," the room before st. patty's day. so, for more than $110 a night (two night minimum), i got two towels, no maid-service, little hot water, and some neighbor who liked to get his/her head banged against the wall.

super good.

and for those wondering... this was the entire room, minus the eight-square-foot bathroom.

a horse of a different color

spent the weekend in o'neill, home of one of the biggest st. patty's day celebrations. if you were wondering how to get a horse green, let me tell you: about a gallon of green food dye.

it was fun. good people. i was not a party animal, though. but some people were...

early in the morning, sometimes late at night

i don't have any fantastic view from any of my windows, but sometimes when the light is just right it sure feels like i have one.

*** can you guess this song? no cheating.

something you don't see everyday.

i was helping a co-worker with photo shoot. the final photo (for the paper) does not have the "star" in it. no photoshop work, either. heh. just like those pictures on the internet. not that i would know anything about that...

a bit indulgent...

this meal was brought you you by mark davis (morels), ryan soderlin (beer), ryan pederson (skillet) and bronson riley (for taking me to whole foods where i bought the blue cheese). i couldn't have done this without your support.

unfortunately, i cut off of the potato, which had blue cheese melted into it. oh so good.

and dessert? some fantastic irish whiskey (knappogue castle) and a good pipe smoke with my feet up on the radiator. all this with some vintage springsteen on the hi-fi.
