Brain Dump

I'm here although admittedly mostly just marking time until Thursday begins and Friday ends. This is going to end up being a random brain dump. Let's see...

I am finally to the point where I only have about a week's worth of backlog for the photoblog and that is a little scary. It is the point I always wanted to be at, but I have for quite a while now had 2, 3, even 4 weeks worth of material waiting in the wings. One week of material means I absolutely have to get out every weekend to shoot. And even though I have that planned I don't know what I'm going to do if I miss a week. Especially with Bayou City Wanderer taking up the excess that I would have normally fallen back on. It is where I want to be but sometimes new territory is scary.

I had a good and busy weekend. I went to a meet up where we got to shoot a fire station on Saturday and went to the Japanese Festival on Sunday. I like staying busy, but I was tired by Sunday evening. I need a day off to recover from my weekends!

8 weeks, 52 days until school is out!

Flickr has added video. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it yet. I don't want to be inundated with people's videos and it is hard enough as it is keeping up with the pictures. But in keeping with my technolust, I want a flip video camera. Why? Who knows. It isn't like I took video as it is with my compact camera. It is pure technolust. We'll see if I get over it. Or maybe I should actually try using the compact camera for now and see if I would even use it.

I'm starting a new walking program. I say that every few months don't I? Well here we go again. I really want this to work. Hopefully it will help my old person knee which is really hurting. It is my right knee and it is really stiff and uncomfortable when I first stand up. It doesn't hurt once I'm standing on it and I'm fine being on it all day, but it seems to tighten up when I'm not on it. All I need now is a cane and I'll be all set to sail into old peopledom. Hell, I missed middle age!

Hmm... seems like I had more stuff rattling around in there, but I can't recall. Spared you further inanity. Escape while you can.
