Failed Lightning Pics

So - I tried to take some pictures of the huge lightning storm the other night. I think that if I had dug out the tripod I could have gotten something good. But, the rain kept on getting lens wet and whatnot. In any case - the storm was huge. Here's what I got.

Ivana Cone

Have we ever mentioned that Lincoln has the best ice cream on earth -a homemade place called Ivana Cone. They have all sorts of wacky homemade flavors (I like the black raspberry, irish cream, dutch chocolate and others . . . Julianne says snickerdoodle is her favorite) and the selection is different every day. We go there way too often. Here are some pics of us and some friends last Monday night.

New Exhaust

I meant to put this up a couple weeks ago but got busy with other stuff. A couple months ago I sold a domain name and used the money to buy a new performance exhaust for my scoot. Its not a super high-end one, but it has some kick. I got a Sito Plus for my Vespa P200E. It bumped my top speed up to about 70mph and really kicked the low- and mid-range acceleration. It also makes Luigi sound a bit throatier. Very cool. Much faster. Much Zippier.

New one on the left, old one on the right. I felt really manly with my wrench and big hunks of metal.

New Camera - Still Unphotogenic

Well, in hopes of getting good pictures of our kid, we bought a new digital camera. We got a Nikon D60 SLR. It is fabulous. Unfortunately, the fancy new camera has not alleviated how bad we look on camera. Nicer Camera does not necessarily mean better looking subjects. Good thing we're good looking in person . . . right?

Obviously we need some camera lessons and perhaps modeling consultations.
We'ze ugly!

Here's a couple others:

My 1st book chapter is FINALLY out!

Although I already had one publication under my belt when I arrived here at UNL, I have been eagerly anticipating the pressing of my 2nd. It is a chapter I wrote for an edited volume around 3 years ago. I'm very excited to see it is finally making it to bookshelves. There is no ego-boost like seeing your name in print!!!

It is chapter 3. Check it out HERE. I just received my complimentary 2 copies and believe that it will be on store/library shelves in July!

In other news, I have an article coming out in a Canadian Journal sometime soon and am working on another chapter for another book (volume 8 in a very prestigious series). Phew! Who knew that academic life would be so busy!

And, if you're really bored, you can always check out my MA Thesis. Currently it gets about 120 downloads a month. I wish I knew who was reading it!
