Cactus people

March 28, 2010

We visited Anza Borrego to see the desert bloom yesterday, and lo and behold! We witnessed these adorable but painful creatures populating the dusty roadsides. They are such happy-to-know-ya cactus.

And then there was this guy:

The Weirdo

The Weirdo

It’s best not to mess with him. He’s a lonely stranger wandering the desolate desert plains. And also hills. But definitely lonely.

p.s. These things are called Teddybear Cholla. Have you ever heard a cuter name in all creation? Here’s the link
But watch out, cuz

The teddy-bear cholla is extremely flammable.

Thanks for warning me, wikipedia.

Time to be Awesome

March 25, 2010

Oh man, I abandoned my last blog because it was too much pressure to say something interesting and or relevant and or funny and or something. But this time, I’ll just write whatever I feel like and who cares if it’s any of the aforementioned aforementionables. But at least I can keep track of progress and images of projects I’m working on over time. Oooh, like a diary. But for my work.
