So I was driving home yesterday after a long ten hours of laying out a new user registration interface for our company's web site and on my lunch hour debugging a Flash script that loads up the super-heroes kids have designed online. I left my office, which is just across the highway from the largest computer maker in the world, passed over forty miles of Texas highway, and on the last curve before my house I saw this:

Unlike last week, when I saw a zebra on the side of Highway 29, this time I had my camera with me and was able to take a photo. I swear, sometimes the cognitive dissonance that is my life confuses even me. At this point I'd not have been surprised if the buffalo had iPod ear buds in place.

Just another day in Nerd Country, I suppose. I do wish I'd gotten a picture of that zebra, though, I suspect Annie is starting to think I've gone off the deep end ...

Pretty soon, you'll be having photos of giraffes and water buffalo out there on the prairie! Seriously -- I was coming to work one day, and there was a buffalo on the side of the road. I got a photo of him and then minutes later, he charged across the road right in front of my car. Chicken me was inside the safety of my Mazda and did not get an up-close photo. But it did make the photo and made my boss a celebrity in the barber shop that afternoon.
