over the nights and through the fires
we went surging down the wires
and we saw st elmo's fire
spitting ions in the ether

in the blue august moon
in the cool august moon


welp i went to comic-con

And I got some comics, and picked up some more sketches of robots. Well, actually, they were all from a bunch of people whom I'd never heard of before, apparently all friends as they were in a booth together with a sign that said "Free Sketches." So I got some free sketches and bought some comics from them, and then later returned with sketches of owls to give them in thanks, because they like owls.

Here are their websites that I can find:




There were six of them there but I only saw five, they were pretty cool people though.

Also my dad has a website now up for his new book, and I did some of the photography for it.

Oh, and I met the guy from Kyle XY but that isn't really very cool because I don't watch the show.

I stopped once I got to Snoqualmie Falls, but the storm had stopped by then. But even without lightning there was still the falls, lit up by floodlights and plummeting down into a deep black void.
