Loving having an iPhone!

One of the things I just love about my iPhone is having access to Twitter all the time now, and not just when I'm at my computer. I also love the option to use TwitPic to link to pictures I've taken with my phone.

I was over at my parents house tonight to have my dad help me build a test tube holder for my school project. While we were working I was also taking pictures and twittering.

Here's my afternoon with dad:

I'm at my dad's house having him help me w/my homework.

Dad has a robot in his workshop. It's only a foot tall though.

Told dad that it is dangerous to have too many robots around They will join forces and rise against humans. He says no, you can trust them.

My geeky dad has Einstein in his basement.

The "odd looking doodad" is missing its original ruler:

Yes it is! I remember dad told me it was supposed to have a ruler too.

LOL! Did you already know what the Odd Job was when you saw it, or was it the magic of Googles? He does have the ruler. When he was showing it to me he said it went with the ruler.

I figured it was some sort of marking tool, and then used the Google magics from there.

Of course to get to the shop you have to walk through the smoky haze of the upstairs... I pulled clothes from the dirty laundry to wear over there since I knew I was going to have to change as soon as I got home!

It's pretty obvious that you have an awesome dad!
I love your exchange about robots.

Out with Dad
I'm going out with my parents next weekend.

I'm going to take them out to breakfast, but this weekend I've been hanging out with my dad. We're updating my computer with more memory, and a Graphics Card. In an attempt to speed up the memory.

I also got some new family tree software...woohoo...

I love hanging with my Dad too. He has a lot of the same tools in his workshop. :)

I'm also planning on upgrading my Ipod to the new 8g or 16g, I'm not quite sure yet. I'm leaning towards the 8g, less cost.
