I'm busy. Too busy to find a better blog-maker than Blogger (i.e. Bogger). But I can't stand the thought of trying to use Blogger because it's been such a gawdawful excruciatingly slow and unreliable pain-in-the ass lately (although it seems fine today). Over the weekend I wanted to write an entry but I just didn't feel like waiting for an hour to get to my "dashboard." So maybe I'll be boring and not blog much because it's gone from being a fun activity to being a source of stress after Blogger started sucking so horribly.
On a related note, Yahoo bought Flickr, which means that another of my favorite things just might become a big pain in the ass, too. (They swear it won't because Yahoo is committed to the same values as Flickr blah blah blah blah. Gosh, I've never heard that before ... )
Also, today is Day In the Life Of day on Flickr, which means that a bunch of folks are going to document their lives in photographs. I did it back in December and I had planned to do it today, but that was back before I broke the lcd screen on my camera. Now it's a raggedy-ass piece of shit and I can't change any settings or see my battery staus or review photos or even keep track of how many photos I've taken ... so taking pictures is just not as much fun as it was with a non-raggedy-ass-piece-of-shit camera. I know, I should just buy a new camera but I'm hemming and hawing over how much of an upgrade I really need and whatnot. On the one hand, taking pictures gives me such joy that I should feel justified in spending whatever I need to get the camera I want. And since what I really want is just another point-and-shoot, I'm not even talking about top-of-the line prices. But on the other hand I feel I should be thrifty in everything I do and I know for a fact that the photographer is much more important than the camera (I've seen plenty of gawdawful boring shit pseudo art crap photos taken with top-of-the-line cameras.) So I'm poring over prices and specs and whatnot. The only thing I've really decided for sure is that I'm getting another Sony Cybershot because I really liked my previous one and I've already got an investment in Memory Sticks. But anyway, I think the point I may have been trying to make is that the "Day In the Life Of" thing may not be that much fun to do today, and in fact it may be a bit of a pain in the ass, just like everything else. Plus I haven't even finished posting my Ecuador pix yet ..
Anyway, it doesn't matter so much because I've got lots of stupid work to do, which is also a pain in the ass. Thanks for stopping by.
