My journal has no name. This is actually the first post I've made directly in LJ, rather than through Movable Type. My MT blog has lj-crosspost installed, so every post I make there gets automatically sent here. I would have posted this on the MT blog, but anyone who reads in on that side would have no idea what I'm talking about. :)

Subtitle: See above

Friends page: See above. Although I'm not sure why I would want to rename it since it's perfectly descriptive. Maybe I would name it, "People who I'm friendly towards but for the most part have never actually met and in some cases probably wouldn't know if I passed them on the street." But that's not very catchy...

My username is bbendick because it's bbendick everywhere else, except the place most of you know me from.

My default userpic is a photoshopped picture of me wearing a turn of the century english long coat. Can't you tell? About 8 years ago my friend Nick and I volunteered to be door men for the grand opening of Crowder Hall, a newly renovated concert hall on campus. As part of the theme we were in costumes and top hats. During a break we walked over to my office and decided we should play with the digital camera we had, and that's where that head shot was born from.

I remember the night so well because I stood for 2 or 3 hours for that event in very uncomfortable dress shoes. Later the night, around 2a, my friend Earl and I left for Yuma, AZ, which is about 4 hours away. 2 hours into the trip the transaxle on his car snapped. We didn't have cell phones then, and even if we did this stretch of highway probably didn't have coverage anyway. So we walked some miles back to the nearest gas station and waited for AAA who towed us to Gila Bend where his dad met us and took Earl to the Tuxedo shop in Yma so he could be fitted for a wedding he was Best Man at. It was quite a weekend.
