I've become a Google addict. I google everything. Every story on the news has at least a few googles to it, I would guess. What did we do before Google? So I added Google ads to this blog. The first one? Here's what it says (in case it's gone by the time you read this):

Paintabll Sniper Guns.
One Shot-One Gill Destroys Enemy.
Long Bow Paintball Sniper Guns!

A) I don't really like paintball.
B) I'm not a sniper.
C) Long Bow Paintball Sniper Guns?? That sounds creepy.

Why can't I have Google ads for U2 tickets, or Photography websites, or something like that. Stuff I actually like. Butterflies and kittens. Who cares. Anything other than Long Bow Paintball Sniper Guns. Of course, by writing the phrase Long Bow Paintball Sniper Guns so many times, it'll probably think I actually like them. Why not ads for Curious George memorabilia, or stuff related to The Chronicles of Narnia? Anything related to CS Lewis, or the first film, The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe would be nice. At least I'm not so addicted to Google I would buy a paintball gun. But I would buy an Aslan doll, if it tried to sell me one.

Time wasters of the week:
  • Make a Flake seems appropriate, on this, the first snowfall of the year
  • Not quite as fun, but there's always Create a Flake
  • This one's addictive. It's the Grid Game. Not holiday related, but I can't stop clicking on it!
  • The Rumble in the Jungle King Kong Jump game was fun, but I got tired of it fairly quickly.
update. no snow yet, just really windy. we're talking 50 mile an hour winds. it looks pretty hazy out there, but no snow. just lots of debris in the air, so why did I get up early to check?

It's 39 and rainy right now, at 11:55 pm. Hopefully sometime over night that will become 32 and snowy. I'm going to work late tomorrow, so I kinda hope it does snow. That would be a fun present on a day where I'm planning to play around in the morning anyway. Some pictures of fresh snow would be nice!

Worn. That's the topic of this week's Photo Friday and for some reason this picture came to mind. This man seems well worn, but not worn out.
There's nothing quite like the atmosphere of big time college football. Nebraska's not quite as big time as it used to be, but still, it's a sight to see. I got to work the game yesterday versus Kansas State. Being on the sidelines is electrifying. Standing beyond the end zone, watching guys try to get where you're at. I shoot a lot of high school football, but it's nice once in a while to bring the camera to a game like that.
