I've got problems

Seriously folks, can anyone please explain why I would spend $36 purchasing a pretty vintage camera when I refuse to pay for a cab at 3am on a Saturday night in the pouring rain?

Sometimes I just don't make any sense.

Not done changing

Bruce Barton once wrote "When you're through changing, you're through!"

I've resisted the swell of digital photography for too long. I realized last night after spending hours upon hours drooling over the vintage cameras on ebay that I was traveling in the WRONG direction. So I think I'm going to do it...I think I'm gonna get me a cute little Canon Powershoot SD500. I really want one of those snazzy Digital SLRs but that is just way out of my pricerange...for now.

However, I will still fondly collect my much loved vintage cameras...

How can you turn your back on a sexy sexy camera like this.

Living in close quarters

One thing that people never mention about living in New York is the strange phenomena of mass sickieness. It seems that any virulent strain of cold or other illness tends to strike the entire city around the same general 2-3 week period. I suppose that's what you get when you take 8 million people and shove them together on a little island and force them to ride in tiny little poorly ventilated pods underground where millions of hands grab and strain at the two anemic silver poles that are supposed to prevent you from spilling onto the floor in a heap of down clothing. What ever I had during the first two weeks of this month seems to be striking everywhere. I bet sales of Kleenex are through the roof!

Don't forget to take your Vitamin C.

Happy Happy Joy Joy!!!!!

There is a God!

And if she happens to live in Manhattan, she can now do her grocery shopping at Trader Joe's!!!


I'm floating on cloud 9.

I can now get an endless supply of my much loved rice crackers, natural peanut butter, and tamari almonds without schlepping to Long Island.

I may throw an all Trader Joe's cocktail party after its grand openning to celebrate this foodie heaven!

Tasting the salty wind

I need an adventure. It's been too long since I last wandered and explored with impunity. I need to get lost for awhile. I need to listen to my own instincts.

The deafening march of progress

Yet another sign that the world is trying to tell me something.

Nikon Plans to Stop Making Most Cameras That Use Film

I'm pretty sure that 70 or 80* years from now they'll find my cold, dead body clutching my old film SLRs to my chest.

(*And yes, I do plan to live until I'm 100 or 110...at the least!)

Sickie, Sick, Sick

It's amazing how much mucus a human body can make. I think I've gone through two boxes of Kleenex since last Friday. I'm done with this cold. Done I say!!!!

And it's also amazing how pudgy one can get just sitting around for 8 days.

Geez louise.

Episode 63: Wherein our heroine gets sick and can't practice yoga or go to the gym.

Voice in head: You know you're being kinda a beotch.
Me: Shut-up
Voice in head: Are you sure it's not all psychosomatic?
Me: I really am sick.
Voice in head: Couldn't it just be the whole N*** situation?
Me: It's definately not related to the whole N*** situation.
Voice in head: How can you be so sure?
Me: Cause...
Voice in head: ...
Me: ...
Voice in head: You know, sometimes I just don't get you.
Me: Don't worry, sometimes I don't get myself either.

I definately need to heal up and get my arse back on the yoga mat.
