I'm good at quickies.
    Bullets:
  • MySpace is tolerable with Adblock in full force.
  • I no longer view cycling to work as exercise.
  • Timbuk2 messenger is nearly exactly the same as Red monster.
    - Two differences: Red cannot be worn like a laptop case and has extra fabric on the shoulder strap connections to help it conform to your back.
  • Crumpler doesn't make a 15" laptop case with moderate pocket space
    - You get either a lot (The Considerable Embarrassment) or none (The Skivvy 15).
  • I'm sorely tempted to make my own laptop bag.
  • Darth Kitty.
  • I'm sick of doing dishes. I'm going to stop eating or only eat cold finger food.
  • I have corn on my desk.
  • I understand my camera's light meter. Now, nearly no picture is wasted (exposure-wise).
  • Eye candy at work.


I just had a random thought about Andy Warhol.
(Happy belated birthday, you crazy, dead, peeing-on-copper artist I adore)
--
one more:
  • I'm really tan. More tan than I've ever been before. Wow, tan.
    Now if my legs would catch up to my face and arms, THAT WOULD BE VERY NICE.

    It was Andy Warhol's birthday last Sunday. (Aug.6).

    He must be invading my zeitgeist!

    I didn't know he was the one who peed on copper! My sculpture instructor as an undergrad suggested I try that when I was working with copper. While I did have a crush on him at the time, I thought he was a bit kooky.

    He just wanted to see if you were into awtersports. :P

    I think, technically, he got his boyfriends to pee on them for him. But ya know, whatever works. He may have tried various imbibed liquid experiments to see what they did to copper as well, I don't recall.

    Interesting note on myspace.

    I ended up making an account so I could look for a friend that I have almost no contact for. The only thing I did to my account was put a photo icon of a kid with a pickle hat on. What happened later? In a day, I get dating site spam from a fake woman.

    Thank god I have never encountered this on LJ, or else I'd be ranting and raving about it all the time.

    And in my opinion, if you have figured out how to use the light control, then you already have mastered most of your camera's ability.

    I added all my school info to my myspace profile. I'm waiting to see if anyone and who contacts me from high school. Hopefully people that I can impress with the massive chagnes I've gone though. :D

    But it's still the worst social networking site i've seen. God, it's bad. And ugly. And CONSTANTLY CRASHING.

    I seem to be getting a good understanding of my camera. I figure out the philosophy of my Nikon's UI a few days ago. Nikon wants a user to be able to edit any settings while the camera is held to your face. You can change anything easily from this position and see what you're changing from the view finder.

    Problematically, it assumes you have two hands and can manage two-button adjustments. So I'm a little SOL for some quick setting changes but no big deal.

    Check out Brenthaven. They make mac-specific bags. I got mine off of Apple.com, but it's too small for me and the color choice is, well, not really a choice.

    I looked at Brenthaven. They're nice and expensive-looking. A little priey as well. Boring, too, I must admit. I like someting with a little flair - thus the preference for Timbuk2 or Crumpler (were they what I want/need).

    I may just be too picky. :) Making my laptop bag could be fun. Or painful. or either.

    Just a secret between you and me? I don't actually own a Macbook yet. I have a Gateway Tablet that is nearly the same dimensions. ;)

    Aaaaah. That's ok. The "yet" indicates to me that your heart is in the right place. :)

    Check some of these out: My own searches have uncovered the North Face Modem, the Osprey Transit, The North Face Sepal, The EMS Tech Brief, EMS' Keep It Brief (I might go with this one), the Osprey Torque, and the North Face Off Site (a very serious consideration - I like all the bells and whistles).

    Wow. Cases I have not seen, You are my hero for the day!

    Yes, I'm waiting on second generation of Macbook and my Christmas bonus. :) Then I'll just need photoshop and my transition will be nice adn easy.

    on a total tangent, have you ever looked at abandonedplaces? i've got a thing for abandoned buildings, but there are some pretty neat photographers in there as well.

    I wonder the sex of the wearer.
