Where’s All My Pictures?

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

For those folks who frequent my site, and enjoy surfing almost every photo I take… (which probably isn’t a huge crowd)… I’ve got good reason for not uploading anything recently! I lost my camera battery!! It’s been a tad annoying, but ever since I went hiking for a week in the Stein Valley, I haven’t been able to find the battery. I managed to snap over 800 photos on my amazing battery, and then I swapped over to a spare one I brought with for the last 200 shots, but when I got home I could no longer find my original battery. I also had a spare battery for my cellphone in the same little zip-lock bag, and they’re both missing.

Not to worry though, I’ve finally caved and ordered a new battery online and it should be here next week. I can only hope it will be as amazing as my first battery… and also that my camera will hold together a little while longer. Those of us who know my camera well know what I mean.

TV Series These Days

Thursday, May 29th, 2008


Don’t worry I never write any spoilers.

I just finished watching the 2 hour season finale of Lost, season 4, and I have to say that I was actually happy with the new season.  Recently I’ve been fairly unsatisfied by Battlestar Galactica‘s third season.  Lost was just awesome and kept up to the standards I hold for it.

Seinfeld CastOn the tv-series note, I’ve started on working through the nine seasons of Seinfeld!  So far they have actaully been really hillarious with more laugh out loud moments that most tv-shows these days have!  I’m just about finished the second season.

All this recent time to watch movies and get abnornal amounts of work done has probably been provoked by not having a car at the moment (though we’re working to fix that soon), and Brittany has been house-sitting her Aunt’s place in Burnaby for the last two weeks.

Actually, I haven’t left my house since last Sunday…

Relaxing Day

Saturday, April 26th, 2008

Today was a pretty slow day, which began waking up over at Chloe’s house after a fun little party to celebrate Mark’s new job last night!  The theme was tacky 80’s ski-wear, which I think scared away a bunch of people.  But for those of us who braved the theme, it was a blast!

Ooohboy… leave it to Mark to host a party with a theme like that!

Gas TankI stopped briefly at home before heading out and filming Vito’s Italian sports news thing as I do every Saturday now, and then I dropped Brian off at my aunt’s to dog sit.  Gas prices were 1.30 on the way out of town, and for the first time ever, I was actually detered from filling the tank all the way.  My theory is that it wastes more time and effort hunting the best prices and stuff, but seriously 1.30 pissed me right off.  I was running really low so I put in $10… but seriously look how little that even got me up to!!!  That is including what I had in there before!

Anyways, the drive was amazing due to perfectly clear blue skies and it being warm enough that I had all four windows down and the sunroof open all the way while blasting Dark Side of the Moon!  I even found myself going slower than the limit on the freeway at some points because I wanted it to last forever!

Back at home, I fried up a single burger and then slipped into a nap for a few hours.  A bit of a waste of a beautiful afternoon, but I really needed that nap.  First “day off” in a while for me I guess.  I’ve been working hard over the past few weeks since the Whistler film getting a whack of work done.  I’ve actually got Spencer coming in every day now and helping out editing and such.  It’s really helpful having the extra hands to tackle the work.  Anyways, this evening I got up to speed watching Lost, Season 4 episodes 8 and 9.  I also managed to tackle my gmail inbox finally!  It’s been stock-piling over the past few weeks and my email has been getting backlogged and it’s been crazy trying to get back to people sometimes.  Lastly I’ve started transferring huge chunks of files onto some new hard drives and such because I’ve been working on re-arranging and upgrading our server.  Moving most of these files are hard to do during a normal work day because a) I should be doing other work, and b) We kind of need those files online to be able to work.

All in all, I’m glad I had a day to get to the “smaller” things and “run errands” around the house.  Normally it would be run to the bank, return a sweater, and visit the grandparents, but for me it was all the things I talked about up above.  And hey, I even got around to blogging now that things are somewhat getting back to normal.  Normal?  Somebody tell me what “normal” is again?

Unbreakable Nocturnalism

Thursday, January 31st, 2008

Talladega NightsWell, I ended staying up a little later last night than I wanted to because I watched Talladega Nights. It was pretty funny.

I woke up around 11am, but didn’t stay up more than an hour or so before going back to sleep because it was just so comfortably cozy and warm! I woke up on and off but never for more than a couple minutes. It wasn’t until around 5 or 6 that I actually got up and started doing things. So much for getting back to a regular schedule!

I meandered around doing a few small things like eating dinner, doing a bit of work, a bit of web-design and a bit of TV. I actually caught the first episode of Lost, season 4 on TV and got to watch it the day it came out for the first time ever! I always have waited until the DVD release to watch them. I also finally implemented Mark’s flash video player in my blog here, so you can finally watch that snowboarding video from Tuesday!

I’m gonna have to get up earlier on Saturday, so this nocturnalism due to web-design has to stop.
