18. August, 2007 - Weekend Update

It’s a rainy morning, and I’m not particularly feeling like getting moving for the day yet, so how about some blogging? Sounds like a plan.

Not a ton has happened. Watched the Saints lose two more games at home. Had a couple cute gals as dates and apparently caused a bit of a stir in the section. People will talk, apparently. And yes, when you add their ages together, they are older than me. But you could figure that out by noticing that both were drinking beers. Still, I enjoyed the cute company.

I’m behind on sleep again. I thought I was in pretty good shape for this last home-stand, but yesterday morning I woke up at about 3:30 to a sharp pain in my shoulder. Seems I had my arm under my pillow (which was under my head) and attempted to roll over the wrong direction. Damn near dislocated my shoulder, it felt like. And for some reason, I couldn’t get back to sleep right away. If this is what getting old is like, I’m not very fond of it.

Got a new camera this week. It was a “present” from work. I’m happy with the still picture quality, and the form-factor, but I’m pretty pissed at the fact that when I plug it into the USB on my computer, it doesn’t just show up on the desktop. I think I may finally end up buying a card-reader just to deal with that. Plus I’ll need a new card for it. It came with an anemic 32MB card, which lets a guy record a whopping 6 seconds of video or 30-some still images. I suspect that won’t be enough to keep me happy. But hey, it grabbed a few photos I’m happy with last night, and I would not have brought my SLR to the ballpark, so it’s working out for what I want, which is a decent quality pocket-camera. And hey, the price was right.

Not sure what else to say. I think it’s time to go fry up some sausage and eggs and such and maybe think about starting the day. Perhaps with a trip to Office Depot to get a new card for the camera. Which reminds me of another conversation about how it’s so much easier to go to places like Office Depot to buy electronics now rather than Best Buy or (Short) Circuit City. At least the clueless sales people in an office supply store don’t think they know what they’re talking about in the electronics department. Unless they do, which is an even happier surprise, since then they’re usually smarter than anyone you’d find in one of the stores that claims to specialize in electronics.

But I had decided it was time for breakfast, hadn’t I?
