Just shy of 451 degrees

Broken book

Here's how hot it is outside.

The pages fell out of this book when I picked it up after it had spent the day sitting in my car. Apparently, it was so hot that the glue along the spine melted.

And, just my luck, it's a library book.

Emily covers Flaming Lips

While visiting my brother and sister-in-law this weekend, Emily entertained us with a rendition of "She Don't Use Jelly" by The Flaming Lips. There's no mistaking that she's my kid.

4-year-old sings 'She Don't Use Jelly'

Here's The Flaming Lips' version of the song for comparison.

Balloon over I-65

The drive to work this morning was made a little bit brighter when this hot air balloon flew above commuters on I-65.

I think hot air balloons are just one of those things that make everyone happy. It was a nice start to a Monday.

Wizard rock video interview

This was a really fun interview I did this weekend.

Get in line -- it just might make the news

I'm beginning to think that maybe this trend of taking pictures of people waiting in line for new Apple products has promise. What if we expanded that idea? Think of the possibilities!

Before our trip to Atlanta last weekend there was a line at inside the bank -- it was so long, I gave up and didn't even wait in it! Then there was another line at The Varsity where we stopped for greasy onion rings -- that place was packed; surely it was newsworthy enough to have warranted a photo. I waited in line outside both Toys R Us and Best Buy trying to get a Wii Fit. Yesterday I waited in line at the bar at Cantina to order a drink. Even this morning I waited in line at the grocery store to buy bananas and yogurt for breakfast. So many photographic opportunities missed!
