Phlogging Day 8: Self Portrait

I have a confession, today was a lousy day to take pictures. Let me recap:

8:00 AM While passing cows, with fog coming off the ground, and the rising sun, I decided to take a bunch of pictures that could easily pass for an Ansel Adams knockoff. Instead, they just turned out like garbage. 

9:00 AM Got to Dr. Silcox’s office, began installation of a bunch of new hardware in my mouth. 

10:30 AM Left the office, in pain. 

11:30 AM Met Tom, towed the car home. (Alternator went out last night.)

12:00 PM Lunch, very confident about morning pictures. Can’t wait to get in front of the computer for awesome phlogging goodness. 

1:30 PM Down at the Stanley’s now, working. 

3:30 PM At Home Depot, poof, $80.00 gone.

4:00 PM At Sport Clips, where have you been all of my life? It is like a Man Spa. For $15 bucks, I got a haircut, shampoo, steamed towel on my face for five minutes, then a back massage. All of this while being surrounded by ESPN on at least 15 televisions. Wow, awesome.

5:00 PM Home now. Warm breadsticks from Little Ceasers. Yum.

5:20 PM Time to fix the car. 

5:40 PM Alternator is out, ready to roll down to Lehi to get the new one.

6:30 PM Back with the new one, putting it in. 

6:45 PM Broke the last piece, now in a panic. Spent more money then I would care to admit, and now I might have to buy it again. 

7:00 PM At the Checkers in Saratoga Springs, they are willing to trade the part in on warrenty. 

7:02 PM Called the Lehi store, (where I got the part) headed there to pull the broke part off of the one that I turned in.

7:13 PM Got the new part, headed home.

7:45 PM New part in, test drive taken, all is well. How awesome is that.

8:27 PM Sit down to watch the debate, and start phlogging post-processing. 

8:44 PM Ticked at the caliber of the pictures, maybe some pictures of the moon?

9:02 PM Done cursing the moon. How do people do that?

9:30 PM Played with a goofy picture of myself that I took earlier. Guess it will have to do.

9:58 PM Posting Phlogging Day 8, commited to do better tomorrow.

Some of the field pictures can be found here, here, and here.
