Hey you!

Ok so I know there is some sort of “Official Delurking Day” and it’s not today (Google seems to point to January 12) but that’s what this is for! I’ve never done it before and, well, I’m curious. I’m trying to figure out what I want to do with this site and realized that I have absolutely no idea who reads this site (probably very few people since I’ve been completely lax on updating for months now). I don’t know that this will actually help me to decide anything but it’s worth a shot.

So lurkers, delurk! Stop in, say hi. Let me know why you read, if you read, how did you find this site, posts you enjoyed, what should I write about, anything!

Sometimes it’s the simple things

Oh look, an elephant!

Actually, there is no elephant unless you consider the inescapable fact that I haven’t updated this in two and a half months. I would say “Oops” but it’s not like I purposefully did or didn’t update. There is something notable in the fact that my hosting is coming up for renewal and I’m all I DID WHAT TO MY WEBSITE??

But now I’m feeling like I actually want to do this thing again. However, I need to either find a template I like (ew; don’t get me wrong I have nothing against premades it’s just that part of the point for me is making my own) or making one. The latter is something I’ve had a big fat ZERO number of ideas for lately. I am going to consciously think about it now and see what I can cook up.

So, for the meantime I will continue to update twitter and flickr.

Edited five minutes later when struck by a certain thought. There CAN be an elephant in this post! Proof:


This fellow hung out at the Renaissance Fair I went to a few weeks back. When he would stop to pick up more riders it seemed like he looked this way to see if there was anyone to take his picture.

Hello Internet

I need to stop being intimidated by this “Add New Post” page. For some reason I feel like I shouldn’t right if I don’t have anything of vast importance to say. But it’s just a blog; I don’t need to produce anything Pulitzer worthy, right? I’ve been tempted to post some random entries on my tumblr but then I remind myself that I have a blog for that sort of thing.

There is something semi special about today. It’s my half birthday! I think the fact that I am excited about such a non special thing is evidence of just how long of a week it’s been. Sometime on Monday I thought to myself “Thank goodness it’s almost the weekend. I’m ready for a break.” Can you imagine how disappointed was when I realized that it was ONLY MONDAY?? Last week at work was pretty killer and this week wasn’t much better. I find it a little amusing that I’m having to try very hard to convince myself that it is indeed Friday and that I won’t have to get up early in the morning. Of course, I have a habit of waking up about the same time anyway but I don’t have to get out of bed and get ready for work. There’s a difference.

One other thing that I realized since it is my half birthday is that I have had my D60 for six months now. SIX MONTHS. It’s crazy. I’ve learned so much since I got the camera but there is still so much that I don’t know. I also need to practice taking more pictures of people but I need some willing participants. I know I sound crazy to most people (I’ve accepted that fact a while ago) but talking about cameras and things just makes me so excited! I’ve been kicking myself a little because I think I may have bought the wrong camera, mostly due to wanting to get some compatible, auto focusing lenses. There’s some technical things involved but I’m trying to figure out the most efficient and inexpensive way to get some new gear. There are soooo many options that it’s a little difficult to figure out. And of course nothing is cheap.

Lazy way out

  • My 365 photo project has turned in to a bit of a bust. It turned in to more of a chore rather than something I enjoyed so I said enough.
  • Work has kicked in to high gear and it doesn’t look like it will let up any time soon. I’m beginning to think I need a book on SQL Server 2005 because of all of the reporting I’m trying to do.
  • I have been reading lots but have failed to update that page just yet. It’s interesting to see differences in writer’s styles and realizing that some people are in a whole different league.
  • This is going to be a short list. I have had nothing profound or thought provoking or even the slightest bit interesting to say. I keep telling myself I’m going to rework the site but I’ve yet to get around to it. So for what it’s worth, here’s an update.
