|Warning, I am a Criminal
(24 Nov 2005 at 00:21)
| Thanksgiving update! Today was actually quite nice, so Mike and I went for a little photography trip around the woodsy roads of Hamden. Here are pictures from that trip (or just the best artsy ones). In an incredibly unlucky coincidence, during my few moments of exposure while photographing a waterfall (see above) the water police drove by and gave me an Official Written Warning for criminal trespassing (see above). Despite my frequent harmless phototrespasses around the country, this is actually my first ever official warning. It is like a badge of honor! (made of flimsy carbon paper)|
More boring stuff: Since taking up running basically none of my pants fit any more (in a good way), so my mom took me to get new cool jeans as a birthday/thanksgiving/Christmas present. Unlike shoes shopping, where it is impossible to find anything that fits me (7½ 4E) so it is just completely hopeless without special orders, jeans shopping is mildly exciting: some places actually make and stock jeans in 30x28, but they are like rare treasured jewels among the stacks of regular clothes. We got some! At the end I did check out the kid's section (thanks for the suggestion, Jaked ) and it seems that I can maybe just barely fit into XXXL husky kids jeans as well. There are way more toys in the kid's section, too, so I think that might be an overall win.
Also: The Tom and Mike family Pictionary juggernaut takes home the cup again, as usual. You wouldn't believe how quickly we got "six nipple popeye."

|Don't let my future technology scare you, jason.|
|Oh, but it does, tom. My only resort is to fight it with even more future technology. Possibly also with fire. Remember: fire is good for fighting more things than just other fire.|
|Pretty much anything!|
|I always thought Hamden's woodlands would grow faded and grainy over time if the public were allowed to photograph them regularly.|
|That's shenanigans. Unless you damaged something or were a nuisance or engaged in some otherwise criminal behavior, the charge is usually _simple_ trespass. Which for me was a $77 ticket in CT in 1994. As opposed to prison. I suppose they also got you on concealment of a deadly weapon for a pocket screwdriver.|
|B: Interesting. Well, given that it was just a warning, I don't think it would have been worth arguing with him over it. ;)
M: They're printed on acid-free paper.
