Unicorn Spotting
Took a detour through an industrial park on the way home today and spotted one of the rarest cars in the US, a Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R in signature Bayside Blue. These were never sold in the states. Only available in righthand drive. One of the greatest sports cars ever made. And i just happened to see one on the way home. It actually made me hyperventillate. I've dreamed of just seeing one of these since i was in high school (like almost two decades ago). I'd always expected to see a Veyron or Pagani before one of these. So incredibly rare here in the US, and even more amazing that it would be out & about in this auto inspection-happy corner of the rust belt, in winter no less (though it has been unseasonably warm, it was almost 70*F when i saw the car). Schaumburb IL 2-20-17
Boo has a really big issue with begging. My mom kind of spoiled her and now it's almost impossible to get her to stop. But this time i didn't mind, because she was begging for her antibiotic pill (which i break open and mix with yogurt)
Since my last generic food photo did so well, here's what i made the other day. A version of syrniki. It's basically soft dry cheese, mixed with flower, a little sugar, eggs, oil, and butter. I add a little vanilla extract, use ricotta instead of the more traditional farmer's cheese (too effing expensive), and fry it in sunflower oil. You can top it with sour cream, but i usually like them plain. Not the healthiest thing in the world, but they are delicious, fairly simple, quick, and super easy. If this photo gets enough attention maybe i'll post my next project. And hopefully take some better pics
No artistic value. Just a photo of my all-time favourite pizza, from Joseph's in Glen Ellyn. Always get extra sauce. Tried to get a photo of a slice with some beer & stuff for a kind of trashy still life thing but kinda screwed it up. Oh well, just have to keep trying!


United States
Weirdo. Eccentric. Opinionated as fuck. Possibly psychotic. Liberal/progressive/whatever. Agnostic/heathen/sinner/whatever. Highly unprofessional railroader. Devourer of all things cheese. Architecture nut. Chronic trespasser. Cemetery lurker. Animal lover. Unintentional Shrek cosplayer. Die-hard car guy. Obsessed with my dog. Anti-social introvert constantly seeking approval. Proud to be from Chicago, though i'd rather live damn near anywhere else.

Missed my favourite time of the year for photography. Just been too busy, too tired, too lazy, too unmotivated. Barely left the house except to run errands. I have to venture out into the world tomorrow no matter what though. I'm turtlesitting for some friends while they settle in to their new place in Arizona, and the water filter/pump their red-eared slider came with shit the bed. Picked up a cheapo replacement that's meant for tropical fish aquariums, and the pickup is too short. Arg..... Spent two whole days trying to clean the little bugger's tank & everything, now i have to find some PVC or something that'll fit. 
 On another note, the weather here has gone to shit. We are down into the thirties, had gale-force winds, and Lake Shore Drive looked like the avenida de maceo in Havana due to the waves. A fitting way to end my favourite time of the year, and the beginning of the most miserable five months imaginable. Yuck.
 I genuinely have no idea what the point of this entry is. Maybe i just felt like bitching. Or because it's already 0700 and i can't fall asleep. Could be i just wanted to say i'm still here, and haven't given up yet. Or, maybe all three are true. Anyway, hope you all had a fun, safe halloween!
