If you don't recall seeing this post on April 24, that's because nobody saw it. When I uploaded it the first time, some of the photos didn't show up, and there was just a blank 770x511 space where each one should have been. This included the main photo, so I resolved to get things straightened out before the Little 500. I didn't, and then finals came along, so there was, um, a delay. But it's here now, on May 12th! Enjoy, finally!

There was snow one day last week (snow! can you believe it?!), so I was quite pleased to see none of it last weekend. I was even more pleased with all the trappings, normal and unorthodox, of spring: bright midday light, dogs sniffing for Easter eggs, the usual 4/20 celebration through music, and (a first for me) stealth proposal photos. Also, I finally feel comfortable wearing shorts every day, and every year, I feel like the first day of braving an unexpectedly strong and cold wind with bare shins should be a holiday. I'm a fan of the first days of spring.

Tune in next week for photos from another hallowed marking of the time of blooming flowers and outdoor exercise: the Little 500! Just like two years ago, I'll be covering it for the Star and reliving the good days of the Indiana Daily Student. I wonder how different it's gonna feel, now that I'm three years removed from my senior year and going for medicine instead of journalism. I'm sure there will still be a rush.

Photo gallery links: Easter "Begg" Hunt (with three color photos in the dead-tree edition!) and Cosby Sweater album release party (part of IndyMojo's 4/20 celebration; this got posted twice).

I rented a 70-200 from BorrowLenses.com for the Super Bowl before I got my own. I liked them; I think you will, too.
