Last night I attended a Wildflower / Macro Photography seminar at The Showcase School.
Overall I’d say the two-hour seminar was good, even if it wound up being a pumped up slide show put on by the instructor. What worked best for me was that all of this guy’s slides were done in pairs to show the dramatic difference when you take the shot “normally” or when you do it “more correctly”. The course wound up costing me an additional $25 because upon arriving home I ordered a set of collapsible reflectors. I also have a feeling a new tripod is in my future. Suggestions anyone?
Now I must keep repeating to myself “When you have the camera take picture.”
Oops, I Did It Again
WARNING: Survivor spoiler contained within
It seems only fitting with all of the Britney Spears “news” this week that I would fuck up my Survivor Pool again this week the same way I did last week. If you remember last week’s post I lamented because I should have picked Erica again, but instead I chose Sylvia. Did I learn? Noooooooo! I strayed from Sylvia this week and pick Yau Man. And who got voted off the island? Sylvia. Fuck me! Fuck me! Fuck me! (I am glad I didn’t mention anything about cursing in my Lent Lite entry yesterday)
The episode didn’t do a whole lot for me. I did think that it would be fun to set up a large slip-n-slide like they had in the challenge.
Now That Was Certainly An Odd Episode Of The Office
I still don’t know how I feel about last night’s episode of The Office. Last night’s episode was rather unsettling, and more than a bit over-the-top with the Dwight sub-plot, much like the second season of the BBC’s version. I guess I’ll have to keep tuning in to see what transpires.

This struck me as rather odd. The other day I went onto my deck and noticed that one of the seat cushions for my outdoor lounge had been attacked. I’ll blame the squirrels.
Could it be that they were mad at me for trying to kill them for living in my attic?
If You Want To Catch A Good Show Tonight
You can join me at The EARL to see De Novo Dahl open for Sovus Radio. As a quick side note, The EARL has become my East Atlanta home away from home. Does anyone out there know the owners? I’d sure like to meet them. I certainly give them plenty of ticket and beer money as well as free advertisements here and in other blogs, I think it’s time to get some sort of perks.
Doors tonight open at 9:30pm. Unless you are a sleep-freak like me don’t plan on doing anything early tomorrow morning because I am sure that the show will end around 1:00am.
Because I Rarely Blog On Saturday
I will wish my mother a very Happy Birthday today (a day early)!!!! Mom, who knows nothing of this blog, will be turning seventy-seven this year. I’m lucky because I love my mother. She has been there for me since day one (pretty obviously, huh) and has supported me through all of my ups and downs. I love my mother a lot. Happy Birthday mom.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
