Jack in the Box has always been a bit of a mystery to me. Maybe because they’re weren’t any in Florida. Maybe it was those ubiquitous antenna balls. Maybe it was because the only thing I really knew about them was that a contamination in their meat claimed the lives of a few people a decade or so ago.
In any case this mystery was never really filled me with the warm-fuzzies. However, I recently came across the new Jack in the Box logo at the end of one of their commercials and it stuck me as being fairly attractive, something refreshing, something a little different from this stale fast food brand.

Every year around the end of February, the Starr County Fair would take the City of Rio Grande, Texas by storm. It was three days of cultural debauchery. In a town so small, isolated nearly an hour from a city of over 15,000 people, this was indeed an event to behold.
The real kick-off came the weekend before the start of the fair at the Wild Game Dinner. For a mere $10 you were granted the privilege of wandering a prefab fair expo hall to taste every South Texas critter someone could get their hands/rifle/trap/boots on.

This is something I’ve been doing on my phone since I had a PrimeCo flip phone back in 1998. I got tired of having to use a PIN on my own cell, so I came up with this little trick.

So a little over a month after that last post, I’ve got things in order. Firstly, no WordPress portfolio. After exhaustively scouring both free and paid theme options, I couldn’t find something that would let me integrate portfolio and blog content the way I wanted to, so I’m going to use two separate sites. Secondly, I’m not going to run WordPress on my server. I was running into a number of administrative hurdles that I just couldn’t wrap my head around, so for now the blog will be run through WordPress.com with forwarding.
Additionally, I’m really close to having my portfolio redesigned. I played around with the design and code for about two weeks and got it to where I want it. Now it’s just a matter of collecting and sizing up all the goodies to put on there. I’d say I’m about 80% complete and hope to roll it out before the end of the month (and my move to Boston.)
