I'm sorry I haven't been taking any pictures.  I was going to take some cute photos of Captain over the weekend while home, but sadly, I did not.

Alas, in last weeks Collegian, I wrote an article about H1N1 and prevention.  You can read it here.  The editor and I each have an article about it, and you have to scroll down to read mine, but it is there.  In the paper edition of it, the story was on the front and above the fold.  That spot is like the holy grail of newspapers.

Stay tuned for more Collegian articles.  I going to be writing some opinion/editorial columns in the future.  I'll keep everyone updated on that.

Happy Tuesday!

Monday, Monday!

Monday, Monday. (ba ba, ba ba ba ba, ba)
So good to me.
Enough of the Mamas and the Papas.
Since I didn't do a very good job last week of the five-pictures-a-day, I took a bunch of them at McCory Gardens and Arboretum in Brookings.  My friend Andy Jensen and I went and took pictures yesterday.  Enjoy!
I love hydrangeas.
I have no idea what type of flower this is, but it's beautiful nonetheless.
One of the very few photos I took that didn't have tight framing and was close to the subject.  It's very strange for me to have something like this.
One of my favorites of the day.
I haven't decided how I feel about this one.  I don't hate it, but I definitely don't love it.
Another favorite.  I just now noticed the bug on the flower in the lower left corner... didn't see that before...
I absolutely LOVE this one.  I love the shade of pink the flowers are.
This is a shot from underneath the flower.  It is some sort of trumpet flower and the real name of it escapes me, but the flowers were really large.  By large, I mean like hanging down about five or six inches.  The whole plant was way taller than I am.  It was cool.
Andy, taking a picture of black pearl ornamental peppers.  I think that's what they were called?
Andy and I right before we left McCory.

This five-photos-a-day thing isn't working out so well.  Mainly, because I forget to bring my camera with me.  Here are some pictures that were taken at the OK Go concert and after.

It was dark and most of the pictures I took at the concert didn't turn out.  Although this one isn't very good either, I like the silhouette of lead singer, Damian Kulash.
Picture I took of Cal and I.  This pictures shows true friendship.

Rolling Rock bottle from Saturday night after the concert.  Took me three tries to get this picture.

I don't have any more pictures that turned out very well.  Sorry there's only three pictures, not five!

Pictures taken on Monday.
Ignore the gross-looking calcium deposits and lime stains in this picture.
Waiting for the Safetysuit concert to begin. 
Doug Brown, lead singer of Safetysuit!
Doug Brown, again.  
I was taking pictures right into the sun so there is a bit of a glare.  In a perfect world, that wouldn't happen.
The concert was amazing!
