Most people complain that they do not get enough sleep. I’m complaining that I get too much. As I finally settled down at 9:30pm to read about iPhone development I quickly became so tired that I couldn’t make it past 10:00pm. Dangen!
Also included in last night’s sleep was a bizarre dream including a conversation containing a nattily-attired man and woman; I only wish I could remember the gist of the conversation.
My Plans Were Almost Upended
Yesterday I declared that “all” I was going to do was leave work, make a stop for gas and food, and head straight home. During the day I received an email from a friend who was in town for one day and having a happy-hour meetup at Brewhouse in Little Five Points.
I considered going to the happy-hour meetup, I really did. That consideration ended when I didn’t leave the office until about 6:00pm, still needing to make my two stops. With traffic moving at a snail’s pace I nixed the idea of getting food, stopping for gas out of necessity, and then heading home where I whipped up a grilled cheese sandwich, turned the Braves game on the radio, and did some computer maintenance. How exciting!
btw – Unleash your inner four-year old by making yourself a grilled cheese sandwich sometime soon. You’ve probably forgotten how much you love them.
fwiw – I’m taking another shot at a “night at home” tonight.
I Think I’m Breaking Away From
A while ago I stopped updating and checking Facebook.
Last week I started ignoring Twitter because I realize that it was taking up too much of my time, had become a platform for people to brag about things they are doing (or more like will be doing), had become a platform on which I whined constantly (and that’s the purpose of this blog!), and will soon be another platform which will be inundated with advertisement.
So far, so good. We’ll see how long I go.
What Would You Like To See In An Electronic Photography Book?
If I ever get my iPhone/iPad chops in order I’m considering making an application which shows photos — think “coffee table book using a different delivery method.” I realize that many people have no interest in purchasing photography books, but there is a niche market that I’d like to try and satisfy.
If you find yourself in that niche, what features would thrill you to the point of buying an eBook of photography?
