Uploading an image…of what?

According to the Greymatter documentation, I can upload images directly to the blog. With blogger you could probably do this too, but I FTPed them manually.

It looks like this works.

Here’s the story behind the picture. Last week, I went out with some friends to a late night lounge event at Moorea Beach Club at Mandalay Bay. We were on the VIP list and everything.

So I was sitting talking with the ladies in the photo, and a girl comes up and asks if she can take our picture. We all said yes, and there it is on the web. They were visiting from Utah (the girls in the photo, not the picture-taker). As you can probably see from the body language, I didn’t know them very well, and no one was drunk enough to overcome the usual strictures against violating strangers’ personal space.

Just to give you an idea of the conversational skills of most people, I said something like, “I’ll have to link to it from my website.” Most times, when you throw something out there like that, people might say, “Really. What’s your website about?” But at that place, I just got a blank, nervous stare, as if I had said, “I like to play with doo doo.” That’s about typical of Vegas clubs, I’ve found.

Oh well, what are you going to do?
