Talking and Drinking, Do Not Attempt Together

I was at a bachelorette thing this weekend. It didn't get super wild or anything, but there was drinking going on. I was the designated driver, so it was just crazy Coca-Cola for me, but others were having fun.

There's something about people when then drink...especially women. The stories just don't really make sense. Women are talkers anyway. And when women drink, they will start these long stories, and soon, it's like they're about to share a revelation or something. And then, they are suddenly at the end of the story, and the people who haven't been drinking realize the end has come and gone. And there was no revelation at all.

Yes, women and drinking are interesting.

Card Contest

I can't believe it's been almost 6 months since my last post. I blame Facebook.

Anyway, I have a very special reason to come back to the blog. I need a vote! You see, there's this cool Hallmark contest that I think is just genius. I decided to enter it, so this past weekend, I was taking photos for their current category of "Birthday His Way." I tried to think of good photos that would work for a guy birthday card, so I came up with these.

Please vote on your favorite. And if you have any good ideas of messages to go with, let me know. (I think winners only get like $250, so I'll take you to lunch or something if you have a great idea to help me out.) Or take your own photo and send it to me. I love creative contests like this.

Something about how "We will turn the lights off just for your b-day" (Idea courtesy of Vicki)

Something about "Take your pick. It's your day."

Something fishing related...

I don't have a message for this one, but I think it's just funny. I wanted to say "If the early bird gets the worm, then what does the old guy get." But Steve said that wasn't funny at all.

Something about just relaxing; I just like the lighting in this shot.
