My God, It's Full Of Photos!

Smiling
I'm going to go see Bran Van 3000 with Max-A-Million, Kim Bingham and John Kastner tonight, at the Jazz Fest. Who wants to go? Get in touch with me, we'll go together!

My laptop seems a little bit unhappy this morning. On top of the battery being on its last leg (it keeps only about 30-45 minutes worth of charge now), when I opened it up this morning, it was just off (I only closed the lid yesterday evening, it should have been suspended), and it had lost the time! Wacky.

I finally, after much procrastination, organized my photos sensibly. I have more than seven thousands photos in there, which always surprises me a little bit, because I'm both not very constant with my shooting (reminds me, I should take my camera bag tonight!), and having started out with film, I often end up shooting not too much (although I'm "better" now).

It struck me recently that while I don't feel all that depressed, I'm really having a bad case of being a shut-in, and it's not a very good sign. I think I changed in some ways I don't entirely like, while I was in France. For some things, I think it was for the better, but for others, not so much! I feel like I'm permanently out of the loop, somehow. One thing I miss is the Tuesdays at Grumpy's, it was a nice, mixed crowd, friendly, and was a regular thing, so it was the perfect time to go "hey, so-and-so, there's this thing Friday, wanna go?". Screw Facebook, that was the real thing! ;-)

Rode my bike around a bit yesterday, not so much in distance, but did a few silly things, like go up to the top of Peel, then down (whee!).

Might be just spring, but I'm in a bit of a... "rawr" mood. This is very much unlike the same moment last year, but I was rather depressed at that time. Combined with Montreal being apparently built upon a very large deposit of hotgirlsonium, made the ride yesterday trying on my concentration. Yay for Montreal? I'm not depressed, so I'll die in a horrible traffic incident? Hey, that might just explain all those observations of bad driving!

Um, well, follow the link, there's supposed to be a live webcast! That's unfortunately the best I can do. :-P

I think I'm up for Bran Van tonight, if I can just get off my lazy bum and do the laundry.

Actually I'll go naked if I have to. Get on IM or something!

My laptop is also a bit on the fritz... but it's barely 6 months old! They're shipping me a new adapter even though I made it plenty clear that it was the connector on the laptop that felt a bit loose (like it unsoldered itself). Anyway it's no use fighting with their scripted tech support so I'm just playing along... Should be fixed within a couple weeks either way.

I was just thinking yesterday that I miss those Tuesday pub things. Not that I could afford to go right now, but it would be nice to think that if my money situation changed I could join in.

I miss Tuesdays at Grumpy's too.

And I don't think there is a loop anymore. I thought I was out of it too, but now I'm pretty sure nothing's going on anywhere.

Sounds like it would have been fun. Unfortunately, I just got back from my vacation and had a ton of laundry and related items to do.

Hope you had a great time!

BTW, if you want to see my vacation photos, read my latest journal entry and follow the link contained therein. :-)
