New Camera.

Earl surprised me this evening by buying me a new digital camera for my birthday (which is tomorrow). Technology is amazing in that it does twice as much stuff as my old camera for half the price. It’s a Sony Cybershot DSC-W55. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to buy an inexpensive digital camera, as it’s small and thin yet packs a lot of punch.

Frankly I think I look like hell in this video, but then again I’m winding down from several beers this evening, as well as hanging out with friends at the local brewery.


Can I just say I must give credit to everyone that uses Microsoft Windows Vista. I’ve had it installed on my HP laptop for the past week and already Internet Explorer 7 has crapped out to the point that I can’t upload anything to my blog nor reliably open websites without it freezing. Mozilla Firefox, on the other hand, purrs along like a happy cat. I’ve been having problems with IE 7 since I got a blue screen of death on Vista yesterday and I wasn’t even near the computer when it happened. I must give kudos to Windows users, you must know what you’re doing to keep your computers usable. I’m sticking to my PowerBook G4. Oh, the reason for Vista is because I have flash converting software (my videos are done in Flash, like YouTube videos) for Windows that is 10 times faster than the same software on my old PowerBook. That’s the only reason I’m using it these days.


When it rains, it pours. That’s what I’ve always heard and that’s what I’ve always believed. It’s proving to be true once again.

I’ve been checking out job opportunities to carry through until school starts up again. I’ve chatted with folks I haven’t talked with in a while, hoping that my conscious effort to not burn any bridges when I left a position really meant that I didn’t burn any bridges. It’s funny, when I leave a job I swear that I’ll keep in touch but I’m not as good at it as I hope to be. I guess I think of the whole experience as closing a chapter and moving on in the book of life.

I’ve had several good meetings this week with several people. And now I have several opportunities to choose from. What to do, what to do.

I feel like I’ve been kissed by opportunity.
