I'm still in Albuquerque, as I've noted previously, and thus I missed out on what could have been my first ever experience of an earthquake. I called up a good friend of mine there when I heard about it, and she was like, "Ho hum, the ground shook a bit, but it wasn't anything to write home about. Good times." I'm sure had I been there myself, I would have completely exaggerated the whole event in my head, and convinced myself that the ground shook so much it knocked me on my ass. But I wasn't there, and so am still left without ever experiencing such a natural phenomenon. What I did get to do today, though, was go out to lunch. Robert and I met up with a friend of ours neither of us had seen in far too long. When you meet up at 11:30 and don't leave until 2:30, you know you've had a nice time.
At some point during the meal, I had to excuse myself to use the restroom. And, awkward as it is to admit this, I couldn't resist taking a picture of something that caught my eye while there. Ever heard of Johnny Boards? (If not, it's because they're an Albuquerque company. I'm sure the concept can be seen elsewhere.) Basically, the concept is that an ideal placement for advertisements is in a place people always have to go: the John.
Normally, I don't think much of it, but today was a different story. It pretty much speaks for itself.
And I think it definitely merited taking a picture in the restroom. Just saying.
