My mother and I spent a few (4.5 hours or so) walking around Arlington National Cemetery, and I took a little over 180 pictures (that makes about 250 for the entire trip).
I love walking about cemeteries and looking at tombstones (ladies, I'm still single!). Some of my pictures came out pretty well, if I do say so myself.
The last time my mother and I were at Arlington I was a wee lad. I do remember visiting the Eternal Flame, and that is about it. This time I recall lots more, and I am very glad that my mom wanted to go.

My second set of pictures from my Easter trip to see my mom are up!
We spent some time in Old Towne Manassas, a place my mom always talked about visiting whenever I was there. So we finally headed over there, and it was a bit of a let down. In the words of my mom, 'This sucks!'
However, we did have a nice lunch and got to spend some time enjoying the lovely weather.
I have some posters that need to be framed (for a crime they did not commit, I might add) and I wonder if anyone out in cyber-land might recommend a shop in Center City that does a bang up job of framing posters.
I just realized, as I was making a to do list, that I have about 40 different personal projects that I am working on (most alone, but some involve others).
Projects make me happy, and they make sure that I watch less TV which is always a good thing (though I also am reading less, which isn't as good).
How many personal projects do you have?
He of Daring Fireball fame, and a Philly blogger though he doesn't come to the meetups), has begun full-time blogging, something I would like to do but which I think will remain out of my grasp for a little while longer.
I suggest taking a look at this picture taken in a large, busy, supermarket.
I have uploaded some pictures from day 1 of my trip to see mother for Easter.
Internet, I am your father.
This is what happens when I go into any large store. I don't know what comes over me but I turn into a 5 year old (with an expensive camera).
Ahh, but at least I'm having fun, though this behavior probably isn't too impressive to the ladies.
No, I didn't buy the mask. Mostly because we were at Wal-Mart and I don't want to give them any of my money. You hear that, Wal-Mart?! I enjoyed that mask and you didn't make a cent!
Did anyone miss me?
Didn't think so. You're all bastards!
Bored Scott plus large store = hijinks.
You'll notice that the camera in my hand is displaying a picture of myself.

Well, I'm headed out of Philly to the hinterlands of Virginia to see Mother. I'll be gone until Thursday, so expect light posting as I won't be bringing a laptop with me and my mom is stuck using dial up.
Me, on Philly Future, about April Philadelphia Bloggers' Meetup:
It would seem that April showers bring out the bloggers (even though today was nice and clear). The April edition of the Philadelphia Bloggers' Meetup is but a memory; a good one at that.
We had a bunch of new comers (destine to become regulars) and a few regulars who are always a delight.
I do believe that this was the first meetup where the tech bloggers (aka the geeks) out numbered the political bloggers (aka the wonks, as I like to call them because I am oh so hip).
Why does it always seem that the only picture of me consists of me looking at some gadget (in this case my sweet, sweet camera)?
I wonder if I could make enough money to support myself by being a blogging consultant.
Someone is doing it out there, I am sure. Why not good old Uncle Scottycakes?
I remember trying it in the 7-11 a few blocks from my apartment in Yonkers. I'm a big fan of texture, and this drink was just odd. I was like drinking chunky peanut-butter (without the peanut-butter taste).
It has generated some good traffic for TUAW, which is always cool. And I wasn't even going to post it because I thought it was too obvious (which I still think it is, but that just shows you what I know).
I thought this picture came out so well that I promoted it from the Daily Scott gulag to the wonders of the main Blankbaby blog. Don't I look good? I mean, like, really good.
