Finally got it! A Canon Rebel t1i. As a Christmas present – from me to Mikey, from Mikey to me. Joint Christmas presents are the best… we have joint custody over the thing.
I have only done some experimenting, but I make it a point to catch the sunrise on most mornings and to take pictures of passing dogs. Dogs that resemble their owners. Maybe the camera is why I haven’t written in a while – but it’s a damn good excuse! There are way too many beautiful things around to be looking at a computer screen for any extended period of time. If only I could talk while I photographed, ran, work or drove and somebody could transcribe my words verbatim. Nah, that would be way too weird. The world isn’t ready for all that’s inside my head.
It’s been more than a year since my last post. The gap has not gone undocumented, though, as I logged and tracked my going-ons through emails with my long distance relationships. My mom in northern California and Melanie on the east coast. Laura in Australia and Julie upstairs. I’m beginning again, with no particular theme but thoughts and food and travel and out of the ordinary things that happen to a girl like me.
October sunrise on the west coast
Melanie: I know you get to see the sun rise long before I do, but here’s what it looks like from over here. Pretty, huh? I love the clouds and the colors and the trashcans.
I’ve been getting used to my new backyard (see photo), my new house and living with great roommates. Each of them brings something exciting and unique to the BK Lounge. Rightfully deemed the BK Lounge because our front door is close enough to hear, “I’ll have a Whopper,” ring into the intercom of the Pacific Beach Burger King at all hours of the day. They’re too busy deciding whether they ‘want fries with that,’ to hear us say, “Don’t do it!”
Currently raining storming in San Diego – and I’m bummed I have to miss the California Honeydrops play at the Slo Brewing Co. in San Luis Obispo tonight. I’ll have to jive to jazz another time. Come play in San Diego, Honeydrops!
