Lani Kai: I find it hard to believe but it's already been three weeks since I went away
ibleedgraphite: wow, really?
Lani Kai: this means I've been posting pictures from the same trip for three weeks

DXC: Decisiveness

ibleedgraphite: why were you hiding in the foliage?
Lani Kai: waiting for the decisive moment
ibleedgraphite: sounds like terrorist-talk
Lani Kai:
ibleedgraphite: why couldn't the decisive moment have been less blurry in the bottom right?
Lani Kai: because the decisive moment was best photographed at f/1.8
ibleedgraphite: you say that very decisively

DLXXXIX: "That Internet is So You"

ibleedgraphite: what is that green rectangle an ad for?
Lani Kai: Yahoo!
ibleedgraphite: rather brilliant place for an ad
ibleedgraphite: although not entirely relevant in context
ibleedgraphite: if it were a Google ad, it'd be like
ibleedgraphite: "find the best and cheapest flatirons in your area"

DLXXXVIII: One in a Million Ten Million

© Colorburn
ibleedgraphite: I think my camera has a dead pixel
ibleedgraphite: I don't suppose it can be revived
Lani Kai: if you take it to Canon I believe they can re-map it
ibleedgraphite: that sounds complicated
Lani Kai: you could make a Photoshop action to clone it out; just take the next pixel over or something
ibleedgraphite: I think I will let it rest in peace for now until it starts hurting people
Lani Kai: that would be a zombie pixel
Lani Kai: I think you should give it a proper burial
Lani Kai: I mean, think of all the pixels around it
Lani Kai: you wouldn't want a dead body sitting next to you all the time would you?
ibleedgraphite: well, it's not really noticeable most of the time
Lani Kai: it's not noticeable because you take mostly dark pictures?
ibleedgraphite: actually it appears as 100% white
Lani Kai: oh, that's not a dead pixel, that's a stuck pixel
ibleedgraphite: how comforting, it is merely stuck
Lani Kai: that's the worst
Lani Kai: that means it can't go to heaven or hell
Lani Kai: so it comes out to haunt you
ibleedgraphite: oh, I was thinking like stuck in a tree
ibleedgraphite: it just has to climb down
ibleedgraphite: c'mon little pixel, you can do it
Lani Kai: maybe if you bring it a ladder
ibleedgraphite: okay, I'll take a picture of a ladder

DLXXXVII: Number Games

ibleedgraphite: I have my own style of accounting
Lani Kai: making up numbers?
Lani Kai: asking other people?
ibleedgraphite: usually, I type in numbers and hit the "grade" button until one of them is right
Lani Kai: would you say you have a passion for accounting?
ibleedgraphite: if you're asking if I would have sex with accounting
ibleedgraphite: the answer is
ibleedgraphite: um
ibleedgraphite: if it has a nice ASSet
ibleedgraphite: then yes, maybe
Lani Kai: you'll probably insert it in the wrong column and later discover that it's just liabilities

DLXXXVI: Unsmall

ibleedgraphite: why is it so small?
Lani Kai: what are you talking about?
ibleedgraphite: it looks like something you stole from Google
Lani Kai: it's the usual size
Lani Kai: I think you're crazy

DLXXXV: Uncentered

Lani Kai: not so sure about it being dead center
ibleedgraphite: what do you mean?
Lani Kai: the impact point is at the very center of the image
ibleedgraphite: I think you're crazy

DLXXXIV: Lucky Shot

Lani Kai: great, you've commented on the two photos I was going to post next
ibleedgraphite: woot, go me
Lani Kai: no, go me
ibleedgraphite: why go you?
Lani Kai: um
Lani Kai: for taking good pictures
ibleedgraphite: oh
ibleedgraphite: everyone gets lucky sometimes

DLXXXIII: You're Fired

ibleedgraphite: did you know that what's-her-face just published an autobiography
ibleedgraphite: Donald Trump's daughter
Lani Kai: no
ibleedgraphite: Ivanka
ibleedgraphite: which is like Ivana, if you cough at the end
Lani Kai: ok?
ibleedgraphite: I thought it was relevant
ibleedgraphite: because it says Trump Tower at the bottom
Lani Kai: I didn't take a picture of the Trump Tower because I had any interest in Donald Trump's family matters
ibleedgraphite: what do you want me to say?
Lani Kai: I dunno
ibleedgraphite: the scrawny little trees on the terraces are like Donald Trump's sad attempt at hair?
Lani Kai: "ooh, that's where they film The Apprentice"
Lani Kai: or that it's the 49th tallest building in New York
ibleedgraphite: wow
ibleedgraphite: those are clearly extremely important and fascinating insights
Lani Kai: I know right?
ibleedgraphite: I can't imagine how awesome it felt to stand down there
ibleedgraphite: looking up at the building where they film The Apprentice
Lani Kai: it's times like these that i know I've failed
Lani Kai: you don't like the picture at all, do you?

DLXXXII: Syllogism

© Colorburn
ibleedgraphite: is that better?
Lani Kai: yes
ibleedgraphite: because it's bigger
ibleedgraphite: bigger = better
Lani Kai: so what you're saying is
Lani Kai: my pictures are better than yours
