Amazing photos on Facebook

Sometimes, I see a picture on Facebook that someone else took and other people say is “amazing” but I think it’s “meh” at best. My GF says I’m bitter, and I just need to get over it.

I think people don’t understand the meaning of words.

It also makes me not take compliments like “that’s an amazing photo you took Raf” with anything less than a pound of salt.

Maybe, I am a little bitter.

My Wrecked Morning

This morning, my entire routine was thrown on its head.

I like to take my time to get ready in the mornings. I like to catch up on the overnight news, I wanted to record an episode for my podcasts, I wanted to make myself some juices to drink during the day and make my lunch.

Why was my morning discombobulated? Because the step daughter missed her bus. Since she missed her bus, I ended up having to take her to school.

That meant no time for my morning dump. No time for checking the news, no time for recording nothing. I had to get dressed and leave.

Now, my day just doesn’t feel right.

Blah.

Game Of Thrones Exhibit At SXSW

I’m a Game of Thrones nerd. When I heard that there was an exhibit in town as part of SXSW, I put everything down and went to go check it out.

It was awesome.

I must confess, that I did not think that I would enjoy the costumes as much as I did. The costumes are super elaborate and detailed. Even in HD, you can’t tell how much detail goes into the stitching and the patterns etc.

I even got to sit in the Iron Throne! Hate the game, not the player.

All of these photos were taken with my iPhone.

There were even a few pedicabs that got into the GOT spirit.
