bonus shot: he gets this way whenever he watches "lock, stock and two smoking barrels"

The other day, Chris over at the beautiful Creative Silence photoblog had a giveaway celebrating his recent redesign -- a mug with brass knuckles for a handle.  I'm not sure what came over me, but I decided that I had to have it.  I signed up, along with several dozen other commenters, for a chance to win.

Late last week, Chris emailed me to inform me that I had, in fact, won the mug.  And a few days later, it arrived.

And I haven't seen it since.

Remember when I talked about my pretty little mug?  Well, it appears that Marcus now has one of his own.  And for those of you who think that every time I take a picture of him, he has the same handsome brooding intense smile, see above for evidence that lately, he's more of a hardass.

Thanks a lot, Chris.

(Thank God, he can't hold that expression for too long.)
