I bought a replacement battery for my camera. I'm tempted to do this, but I'm lazy so I have to say "I might be in. If I I remember." I read the community rules and joined, but taking a picture every hour or so might be boring in my life. I go to work, go home, play WoW. Although, my building is pretty neat.

When I did it, I didn't take a photo every hour. Some hours, I skipped. I think all that really matters is that you have a chronological narrative. :)

I even skipped the regular time checks. I'm bad.

Ha! When I did it I didn't even realize there was a community or "rules". I just took pictures throughout my day.

Damn right.

It's also a great excuse to do something interesting. Friday I'm doing a wine tasting and Saturday moving to my new office.

This comment reminded me that I wanted to try to schedule a wine & cheese tasting party this summer. Would you and Fox have any interest in joining us for that?

I'll take a camera with me Saturday... depending on how busy it is, I might not be able to take tons of photos, though...

Woo!

What else is happening Saturday? I think we have evening plans but don't recall.

I'm meeting up with lqqkout for coffee after the market, I think (Still need to confirm for sure), but other than that, nothing...

Ok. I thought I was doing something other than moving my office that evening. Eh?

I need to find a cheap throw rug for my office.
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: May 14th, 2009 02:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
Target?
abmann From: abmann Date: May 14th, 2009 02:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Checked yesterday. All their rugs suck. I may try the Mall this evening.

good plan!

I could do it tomorrow.... but kilt making isn't the most exciting thing in the world...
abmann From: abmann Date: May 14th, 2009 01:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
LIES! Kilt making is awesome!
techdragon From: techdragon Date: May 14th, 2009 01:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
But all my super-secret(tm) trade secrets would get out.... else I would have to edit the part out where the gnomes come in and wave their magic wands over the..... damn.
abmann From: abmann Date: May 14th, 2009 01:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
I see no issue with this at all.
angels_ember From: angels_ember Date: May 14th, 2009 03:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
I totally want to see kilt making!

Some advice on GIMP: http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/04/03/8-handy-tweaks-to-make-gimp-replace-photoshop/ SmashingMagazine saves the day once again.

P.S. I did not see those as doughnuts at first glance.
abmann From: abmann Date: May 14th, 2009 01:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
I only used GIMP because I didn't have my MBP. :) It is a last recourse.

Now.. if I could get it or photoshop or Aperture to work on my netbook...
spitefairy From: spitefairy Date: May 14th, 2009 01:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
Have you looked into PS portable? It's a nice stripped down version that works on most crapbooks. I can get you a link for it later today if you are interested.
abmann From: abmann Date: May 14th, 2009 01:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
I have no idea what you're talking about. So, yes. Give me Teh Infauxs.
spitefairy From: spitefairy Date: May 14th, 2009 02:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
Infaux sent, the chicken is in the roost. I repeat, the lobster is in the cage. Do you read? Over.
abmann From: abmann Date: May 14th, 2009 02:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
I read you. I am boiling the water.
angels_ember From: angels_ember Date: May 14th, 2009 03:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hrm... I actually have plans for tomorrow and Saturday that could result in an entertaining ADIML. Perhaps I will have to charge the camera batteries!
abmann From: abmann Date: May 14th, 2009 03:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
Perhaps? No no. Must.

OMG river of donuts DO WANT.
chandrielle From: chandrielle Date: May 15th, 2009 01:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
Okay, I'm doing it today since tomorrow promises to be dull, dull, dull. So far I've gotten a few good shots. :)
