I guess it does...

Went to New Haven... drop off car at the shop. Andrea and I got Subway after a mad dash to the station (thanks Dad), thinking the train left at 8:57, when it left at 9:16.

I got the high score, and I never do...

Check out this video game (click)

As of this posting, I have the high score (on Level 3), and a bunch of the top ten. For some of them, I entered my names as my web address in a shameless attempt to drive traffic, which probably isn't the coolest thing.

I'm just so proud.

Call it cheesy if you will, but we went to see Pat Benatar in concert last night, and she friggin tore it up. Set was a bit short, but she can still belt it out...

Night Out with Tami, Bronwen and Trev Dawg

Went out with Tami and Bronwen and Trevor last night. Was totally fun. We went to Daddyo's, then Chumleys then XOU. We acted silly and drank more than was prudent...

Some fuzzy pix and Andrea eating a nectarine pit...

I thought I'd fuck around with the fuzzy picture thing. I figured it was a good exercise just to try to get the light, the sort of diffuse thing maybe imparting more volume to the light...dunno, just fucking around.

Robot Camel Jockeys...I shit you not.

Apparently the races are grueling, so they've developed robots to ride the camels, and the real "jockey" uses remote control. Certainly better than smuggled children...

15 year college reunion

Went up to Vassar yesterday for my 15th reunion. At first it was quite strange to be back and talking to people I hadn't seen for 15 years, but it got less weird, and ended up being fun.

John and I walked around our old dorm (where the class of 1956 was rooming-lots of old birds wandering around being really nice to us...). One of John's old rooms was open so we went in and John had flashbacks. It was funny.

Went to the Mug for a while, wandered around campus. Then went to 7-Eleven and got microwave junk food and sat on the curb and noshed. It was like any other night when we were students there.

Full set of pix here...

John having flashbacks...

My room freshman year. They changed the room numbers, it used to be 248.

The Mug, totally unchanged...still smelly, sweaty and loud, and you have to wait too long to get a bad drink.

I lerve my lens

Its really difficult to manage though...I missed the critical focus on the one of Andrea. And I'm shooting RAW now, and I'm using shitty MS program to shrink JPGs after I output them from Adobe and it fucks them up, like the moiree on the shirt below.

I know how fascinating all this is.

New Lens

Bought a new lens yesterday, a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8...very cool. With f/1.8 you can get just a sliver in focus. It was only $100, and its just about as sharp as the kit lens that came with the camera.

In the car in Buffalo...
