Another week has come to a close here in Strangerville. Remind me next week to give you the update about the thing on my arm. Oh, and if you see me before then, DON'T touch me. My ringworm, Axel, is looking for a place for his 5 million babies to live.

And with that, I give you this week's pictures from my phone and weekly distractions.

My adorable niece (the one who hates me). Also, Bob looks like he might be having a stroke in the background.

The Salt Lake Mormon Temple, a block from my apartment.

Sunset view from my office window.

Kurt: a new picture for you to drool over and make his ego explode.

I texted this picture to my friend Sam to ask if he thought I could go out of the house like this. I don't remember his response, exactly, but it somehow used the word "circus." I was too lazy to change.
