Blech, I forgot how much I hate driving in the snow
id: 31306
None of this snow was here only a few hours ago

If you look at the timestamps of the first photo and this one, you'll see it took me 50 minutes to go what normally takes 10

So much snow!

What did the internet stranger send you?
id: 31315
It's all shiny..
id: 31316
It's a crazy lopsided mirror Rubik's Cube!
id: 31317
It essentially replaces colors with thickness of layers. I didn't believe it, but it's isomorphic to a Rubik's Cube
id: 31318
Meanwhile, at my apartment.. I got a box too!

The party took place in a strange building seemingly designed so Buffalo residents could pretend they live in a normal climate
id: 31330
Free food abounded

That's a big Christmas tree. I like to think it's actually a super tall column and perspective just makes it look like a cone

For some reason there is an actual airplane on the ceiling
id: 31333
Giant ornament!
id: 31334
What's with all the flags?

And of course, he was sporting his white high tops
id: 31356
Hey Rob!

Becky poses for the new picture

This was the Obama "Hope" poster I had asked for!

I busted out the old broken 18-55mm lens

It's "artistically interesting"

Or it's just all broke
id: 31458
The 50mm works better
id: 31459
