MBP
My MacBook left China at 8pm last night, assuming FedEx is using time local to Shanghai. I wonder if it will get here before it left.
Yay. :) But I can't play with it on the off chance it arrives. I have grad school essays (not mine) to edit!

I have finally gotten sick. All my housemates have been sick twice in the last two months. I was hoping I could avoid it but I think Fox has been coughing in my face while I sleep.
In spite. Angry phlegmy spite.
And malice.

Last night's 365 day portrait was creepy.

Haha! Somehow I missed the 365-day portrait thing, and I was wondering, "Gee, he sure is posting a lotta pictures of himself lately!"

Holy crap, I must have looked so vain. Yeah. It's a Flickr group project that smed brow beat me into doing. It's really fun. I've learned a ton about lighting and mood. I've also learned that the 17-200mm Sigma lens is ass-tastic. Sure it zooms like hell but I have to fully extend my arm, and then some, to get it to focus on me.

Have you a tripod, sir? It might be a way to get some full body shots in.

I do. It's much harder to aim and click the shutter when you're using a tripod for self portraits. What I have been needing/wanting for this project is a remote shutter release. however, Nikon is really bad at stocking any of their stuff. My local Camera Co. has been devoid them for weeks.

Stupid Nikon. Such good equipment. Such crappy customer relationship management.
