Here is a really cool Flickr photo stream of abandoned buildings. This totally fascinates me. I remember stumbling on some abandoned houses, etc, when I was kid and we were exploring random places - super eery but exciting nonetheless.
On another note, I'm have bigtime problems with Google (i dislike you more and more google!) because my credit card that automatically renewed my domain name has expired, so without telling me they suspend my account (or maybe this happened when my blog was blocked that one time)...anyway, I don't have access to it to update the payment info...so...after forever and ever running in circles, I've set up a new account so hopefully all is resolved soon. or else I'll have a new web address. Google has pissed me off in 2013 though...google reader?! google home page?!
