Just Your Average Workday: The Sequel

I am so tired again today I wanted to go straight to bed when I got home, but I remembered my committment to blog and therefore will relate that no blood was spilled at work today! Hurray! Also, after three hours of fruitless phone calls I finally located an exorcist--I mean, a plumber--to fix the possessed men's room toilet that had been in continuous flush mode for about 20 hours. His name was Ben, he was kind of cute, and it only took him about 5 minutes to mutter the proper incantations.....

It's not actually reading Harry Potter that has me using all these occult metaphors...

You see, I took my digital camera to work yesterday, and took a few pictures. The ones from the projection booth are very interesting! I wish I knew how to do thumbnails (Pixy! any tips?) but since I don't, here are two pictures I took a few minutes apart :

That stringy bright stuff was not there when I took the picture!

Logically I figure that the flash was bouncing off of something (since I was at a slightly different angle than for the prior shot) but if you look carefully you can almost see a face.....

I am almost positive you caught a shot of a poltergeist. ;)

OH, and forgot, if you want to thumbnail, you just set height and width, ie, (img alt="projector.jpg" src="http://practicalpenumbra.mu.nu/images/projector.jpg" width="64" height="50" border="0" /)

Must be Peeves messing with the projector.

Using width/height tags isn't ideal, because it requires that you download the whole image to see the thumbnail. MT has some support for thumbnails, but I've never tried it. I'll play around and come back.

Aaaah! Demons!

No, you're right, it's almost certainly light reflecting offa something. Kinda neat, tho.

Actually, I generally reduce pics in size. If you do not have a graphics editing program, I can suggest a good nagware program that does about anything you want that does not involve the actual creation of graphics.

That's one spicy meatball!
