Bringing it full circle.

This experience has been tons of fun. I’ve been eager to join the ranks of Whiskerino since I stumbled upon the contest in 2005, and am glad I was able to slip in here for the last event. I was really too busy to comment much (as was shamefully obvious from my stats) but it was great to be able to spend some time each day really enjoying some rad photography and general creative drive. I also fulfilled my three major Whiskerino goals:

- 100% participation (even though there was that one evening in there where uploading wasn’t working and I had to wake myself up at 1:40 am CT to try one more time. Phew.)

- Completed my trilogy of Whiskerino T-shirts. This year’s shirt is already in steady rotation.

- Successfully used the term “clame” without being too bothered by where the “my” fits into the whole equation. “Click MY Name” = CLAME? I am sad for the MY.

I periodically do things on the internet, so please hit me up.

seriousiseasy.com (periodic ramblings)
twitter.com/justinc (periodic insights)
flickr.com/photos/justinchildress (periodic photography)
virb.com/justinchildress (periodic "social networking." Gah, I hate that term. I’m notoriously bad at keeping this thing up to date, but that has largely been because I’ve had little reason to. This seems like a good opportunity to initiate a reboot.)

Happy trails, beardies!

your hat rules... almost as much as your beard..... which doesn't rule even nearly as close to as much as you do.
