It’s Cold in the Apartment!

I’m not usually too cold here (except when I go outside), but today, after I opened the curtains in the living room and got to work, I noticed it was getting colder and colder and colder. I finally got off the couch and went to the window to see if something was up and, well, it was — the window/door wasn’t closed properly, letting in quite a draft. I’ve been trying to warm up since then, by wrapping myself in a blanket and putting on a hood. It’s finally getting a bit better, but my nose is still cold.

Man, it’ll be nice to be somewhere without freezing temperatures for a while.

Update on A Puzzling Problem: Problem Solved

Evan did it. Thanks to a bunch of photos to look at and a bit of fiddling time, it’s solved. Much easier to figure out when we have reference of how it’s supposed to look.

Spike’s Moldy Noggin

Moldy Spike

File this under sad face: Spike’s head is all moldy and I don’t know what to do. Suggestions are welcome. Is this the end of Spike?

Lobby Photos: Miriam Comes to Visit

Francine and Miriam

Awesome surprise while sitting in the lobby today: Miriam came to visit! She is in town from Barcelona, visiting Bernat.

Well, it wasn’t a surprise that she’s in Budapest–she’s been here since Friday and we hung out on Saturday night at the wrap party–but it was still great to get to chat with her and have coffee together. She’s only here until, Wednesday, though.

Fun With Photo Booth

For all of you with Photo Booth on your Macs, you understand how it provides hours of entertainment–playing with effects, contorting your face into the weirdest expressions possible and then laughing with your friends and family about the hundreds of photos on your computer of you looking like a cyclops, Jay Leno or both.

I first experienced the narcissistic joys of Photo Booth a few years ago playing around with my aunt’s MacBook, then again when my sister got one. And since I got my MacBook a few weeks ago, I’ve been playing with it almost daily. Then last night, Evan joined in on the fun. I wish I had some cute smiley photos to show, but most of them are of us making faces or just being generally ridiculous.

Also, I believe this is new with Leopard, since I don’t remember seeing it before–you can take a series of 4 photos in close-to-photobooth style. They show up in a 2×2 configuration instead of a 1×4 and they actually save as individual photos, so I had to put these four back together in Photoshop, but I like them–they seem to tell a little story.

Oh, and Photo Booth takes mirror-image photos. I should have flipped them. Ignore the backwards writing on Evan’s shirt.
