A pile of phonecam pics (almost done with backlog.) In no particular order:

1.) My nephew Ben, relaxing at a family dinner.
2.) SPOILER ALERT: Uh, I think they're on the same side, guys.
3.) My girlfriend Selene, outside of a wedding we attended back in September.
4.) A sign that cracked me up at the local food court. How could you not pick number five?
5.) My girlfriend's parents' house, which is pretty cool.
6.) A hotel in DC, which is apparently owned by Batman.
7.) They're building a playground at work for the new day care, and a few astute co-workers noted a design flaw.

I'll be more or less offline for the next couple days. Probably won't kill me (note: it might.) If you really need me, I've got the cell. Hold the fort, crew.
