Birds

I got a book in the mail yesterday!!!

w00t!!
I got my copy of City Birds, Country Birds in the mail from Adventure Publications yesterday! :)
I'm officially a published photographer! \0/
Besides my pictures there are tons of awesome pictures in it. It's also a really fun read. Birdchick's personality definitely comes through, and I know I'm going to get a ton of useful info from it.

Unfortunately Amazon doesn't show it as available yet and just has a publication date of September 2008. Borders also doesn't show it as being available, and has a release date of September 01, 2008.

Adventure Publications does have it available to order, but it is at the cover price of $14.95 rather than the $10.17 it will be from Amazon. Since I'm planning to pick up copies for me & hellbob's parental units, I'm going to wait until I can save a little money to get them. Heck, I may be a published photographer, but I *am* an unpaid published photographer after all!

Clicky here or on picture to get to the publisher's site!

This is for the 3 or 4 people on my flist NOT reading xkcd yet!

xkcd is a webcomic that is mainly stick figures, very minimalistic, very little color used, and way super cool awesomely wicked funny!

These are the last two cartoons posted. The first one made me laugh, and the second one made me smile even though it put that damned song BACK in my head!! (and for those of you who haven't seen the commercial/heard the Discovery Channel song, HERE IT IS)
