My favorite images from the week:

January 27, 2008

I was in a local pharmacy and immediatly located Kristine’s first Valentines Day treat:

My interest in finding a small bag for mobile devices and a notebook were renewed when I purchased an iPhone last week. I have become frustrated with my large Timbuk2 bag; it is too big for my current situation – it was perfect for all-day UIUC treks across multiple departments. I have been unable to successfully locate a small bag for mobile devices (no laptops welcome) until Kristine found a great bag from a local Forest Park shop, modified the strap, and then 2 Day expressed the bag and a box of Downy dryer sheets to me!!!

Images of the Downy box (featuring Kristine’s turtletoons) and the bag are forthcoming.

To Kristine’s left is a relatively new coffee table Stanley has been trying to summit…

Stanley on coffee table!
and he did!

Kristine’s favorite green sweater became Stanley’s object of desire for a moment, but first he had to obtain the garment.

and he did!

Underdog has nothing on this pup:

After a long day of flying around with green superhero cape, Stanley decided to rest for a bit before future adventures!

Following Stanley’s visits to his grandparents home, he returns as a plump, well-nourished, 19lb pug.

Entering the space between the floor and the couch, once an effortless task, now requires much scrambling and several breaks to recover his breath.

Eventually Stanley’s goal is accomplished and he lingers for some time, possibly realizing the energy expelled to be in the space demands an extended rest to justify the effort. Like all populations of migratory animals, Stanley returns to the comfort of home…

…the cycle will begin again…

I was running iStumbler on my return trip from Chicago to Champaign hoping to discover available WiFi along the rails during a stop. The following image is a compilation of all the networks my machine detected along the route of my trip.
