The orange and blue here in Auburn just don’t feel as friendly to me as they did last week when I kicked around Gainesville. Maybe the people here need an attitude adjustment like that used by this (former) University of Florida professor. (for those who cannot follow the link, there is video of this professor who appears to be stoned while lecturing)
I am sitting in another overly-air-conditioned hotel room, sneezing and brewing a cup of coffee to combat the chill. Currently I am proud of myself for not only correctly guessing how much water should be poured into the mini-coffeemaker, but also for troubleshooting the reason it would not turn on. And this is all occurring in one the better hotels in which I have stayed…
I will say that one good thing about waking up in the Central Time Zone is that I feel more productive because it feels like I’ve gotten up so much earlier.

If I happen to shoot anything interesting between now and my first interview at 8:30am CDT I will update this space.
Here you are, and two shots no less…
Is there really a West “Coast” of Georgia?
