Monday Funday

Interesting times here at the spangler house. My wife has decided to get two pet rats. They are mostly harmless. Our dog however is obsessed with them, and keeps whining and barking at them ever since they've been here. It's only been three days, so I'm hoping she gets over it. 

We are watching Ninja Warrior USA vs. Japan right now. I was expecting the Japanese team to be something out of a Bruce Lee movie, but so far, very disappointing. USA is winning by a long shot. My theory right now is that the Japan team is just playing opossum and they're going to completely dominate the rest of the competition. We'll see how that pans out. 

I have been seeing some people post photo collections recapping 2013. I think I am going to work on assembling some of my favorite pictures from 2013 for a post later this week. 

In the picture world, my friend Nick got a couple of new lenses for christmas. One of which is the Canon 40mm pancake lens. I had a chance to mess around with it, and it's actually really impressive. I really want to get a prime lens now, I've got the bug. Perhaps a 50mm 1.4 is in my future. 

I'll close out this post with a random picture I took when I was messing around with that lens.
