The Month in Pictures: October 2007

Random Friday Thoughts

In a nod to my hectic work schedule (though I'll classify this as part of re-branding), the Week in Pictures (WiP) has been rechristened as the Month in Pictures (MiP) from now on. In keeping with current trends, I'm going to classify this as a "Green Initiative" in that it allows me to conserve 75% of the energy I used to spend each month writing this.

It's raining. And cold. And the leaves have finally begun changing. I really enjoy this time of year. The only problem is this: I'm about to fall asleep at my desk.

So let's move on to the WiP...erm...I mean MiP
