I think we ate an an IHOP on the island, and one of the things I recall, beyond just how pleasant the environment of the town was, was the number of loud motorcycles roaring past outside, almost all the time. Not sure what the deal is with loud motorcycles, but there seems to be a connection with beach areas (I noticed this with Galveston too.) If I can find my St. John's Pass images, I might post them here.

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit
This is just one of many ways to get something (a stray eyelash, dust, etc.) out of your eye.
- Never rub your eyes when something goes into them.
Grasp and blink method
- Grasp only your eyelashes with your fingers and pull your eyelid down over the lower portion of your eye.
- Keeping your eyelid closed with your fingers, blink several times and rapidly.
- Let go of your eyelid and see if you can find the particle in the lower portion of your eye, or determine if the particle has been cleared from your eye. If not, repeat the above steps.
Follow-on washing method
If you follow steps 1-3 and the particles are still in your eye, try to wash out your eye.
- Take a handful of cool water.
- Open the afflicted eye and splash water onto your eye.
- Once you have done this, dry your eye and blink quickly. If not out yet, repeat once more or seek medical advice.
- If you cannot remove the particle from your eye with the method above, seek professional help.
- Take a strand of hair and gently put into your eye the hair grabs on to dust particles. Try holding it taught with two hands like you would a piece of dental floss and gently pull the middle of the strand down over the particle-- avoiding your actual eye.

I did this charcoal drawing ages ago, based on a bust called "The Damned Man", I think. I did a lot of charcoal on a newsprint-quality paper, then I'd lock it all down with a hairspray. This was a good learning medium, but charcoal is not as forgiving as pencil is, and it's very difficult, I found, to correct mistakes made with the medium.

I was glad to hear that they were making a film about "The People vs. George Lucas", and thought it was cool that they were taking fan-submitted films from disgruntled Star Wars films cheesed by the prequels, and I BRIEFLY toyed with the idea of making my own film. I never got around to doing a film, but I did put a couple cheesy bitmaps together, which I've posted here. These would have been used in the film.

Another silly cartoon I made a year or so ago.

I just found some of these nightmarish Hurricane Ike images from a forgotten folder on my desktop, and seeing these brings back a whole host of nasty memories. I remember this Doppler image as a sure sign that we needed to get out of the area and fast (and I'm glad we did. The damage done around the area was one thing, but 1+ week without power would have been too much.)
