Resurrecting Me

I’ve been doing a lot of things, most of which seem to distract my vision on what I want out of life. I want, in fact need, to refocus.

On my agenda:

  • Become a successful programmer (again).
  • Photograph, photograph, photograph — creatively.
  • Get Jalapeño Beach running
  • Set up my email and Google Voice for my domain and create personal calling cards with that information on it (think “business card” without business implications)

And I’ll do it all with or without having an Amazon account… (yep, my account has yet to be reinstated)

Eclipse de Luna(tic)
I had dinner and drinks with friends and coworkers at Eclipse de Luna last night. Eclipse de Luna is a “tapas” restaurant which means you pay near-full prices for small portions of food (you may get my feeling for this concept from the tone of that last statement.) I was glad that I wasn’t all that hungry, although the group outing wound up costing me $25 regardless because we (sanely) decided to divide the bill by the number of people sitting at our table.

Gents, if it’s a place to find beautiful women you seek then take your game to Eclipse de Luna. I was (perhaps not) stunned by the number of stunning young ladies in the Dunwoody location, presumably the stay so slender by not eating gargantuan portions of food. I have no “game” so I sat on the sidelines and watched the activity swarm around me.

ITP Flickr Pic
I didn’t get any shots from Stone Mountain that thrilled me. In my opinion this one falls into the “barely acceptable” bin.
Big City Lights
Hey at least it’s a photo, right?

I’m Now Riding The Google Wave
But don’t ask me how to use it, or even what my ID is, for I have no idea yet.

UPDATE: I am most likely “” Rats, another account to which I’ve tied myself to the identity “InsideThePerimeter.” When I assumed that identity I figured I’d be here forever. Forever is started to seem like it will come to an end someday in the not-to-distant future.

Stats & Goals
Current Mood – unfocused
Current Music – listening to last night’s Survivor

2009 Goals
– Reduce my weight to 190 pounds (today’s weight was 199.5 pounds)
– Completely read the book 1001 Paintings You Must See Before You Die
РEarn at least $150 through photography sales in order to cover the cost for the renewal of the Jalape̱o Beach SmugMug account I opened the other day.

The Unmeasurable
– Continue backing up all data, including the off-site storage
– Become a proficient programmer in Objective-C (iPhone development) and Ruby on Rails (Black Sheep web page concept)

    I think that’s a good picture. Clearly the sunset wasn’t helpful, but you made the most of it. How big was the lens and how long was the exposure?

    I was shooting on a tripod with a 70-200mm lens and a 1.4x teleconverter attached. That shot was taken with a 4 second exposure.

    No worry, be happy.
