I actually did have a particular topic I wanted to write about, but due to certain circumstantial events (see below), if I delved into that now I would have to rush through it, and I don’t want to do that. There’s always tomorrow! Or the next day. Or the next. You know.
Hang on to your hats, because I am about to say something that I don’t think I have ever said before and am not very likely to be saying again! (I kid, I kid. I think.) Today was actually sort of a good day. Barring a minor freakout when I realized that I start classes again on Monday!! I’ve known that for months; leave it to me to exist in such a fabulous state of denial that I am all but unaware of reality. This made for quite an unpleasant awakening. AH!!!
Anyway. That, obviously, isn’t what was so good about today. I don’t actually know what was. Considering that last night I spent my wakeful hours in bed despairing of the future because I can’t seem to find my “greater purpose,” and other assorted thoughts just like that one, I would have thought I’d be quite down in the dumps today. No? Okay. Not asking any questions!
As for the circumstances which got in the way of my blogging up until now… I did call Canon’s customer support number, and after explaining that I really doubt that it’s dust coming out of the flash, since to my knowledge dust does not smell much like smoke, I was told to send the camera to them to have it evaluated, after which I can weigh my options… pay to have it fixed, upgrade, get a new one, whatever. Point is, I will not have a camera for at least a week. Turns out I am just as addicted to my camera as I am to the internet, because the concept of being camera-less caused a not-insignificant amount of panic! Plus there’s the game I’m going to with my dad on Thursday, and I will definitely need a camera for that. So I’m borrowing my brother’s for a while. Except that his camera doesn’t appear to get along with my memory card. Every time I put it in, the card would lock. Okay, it’s an old card. So I tried one of my newer ones, a micro-card with an adapter — neither of which I’d ever used before. Still says “card locked,” except that it’s clearly not locked. In the end, I’m using my micro-card but with my brother’s adapter. Complications, complications, I tell you…
And then another little issue arose. Last night I had the funereal task of throwing out one of my albino rainbow sharks. These particular fish always did like to hang out in The Graveyard, so there’s no way to know if it means anything, but it was making me nervous to see the second one hovering around there. Obviously this necessitates a water change. No small task, especially when done on one’s own!! I really need to clean out the filter, though. I mean, it’s been about ten whole days. Sigh. Anyway. This is why I didn’t get around to blogging until now, and why I get to ruminate over my originally intended topic for another day or two…
Meanwhile, just a few pictures.
Nana’s Omega-Fiber cookie bar in Apple Harvest; it doesn’t look anything like a cookie at all, which helps a lot mentally for a crazy person like me! It tastes, well, like apples and cinnamon! There are a bunch of tiny little seed-like things in there (flax? and something else?), which I can see someone disliking, but I actually think it enhances the texture. I’m weird.
And clearly, also very mature for my age, because I find this endlessly amusing.
This is just a usual salad (romaine, sprouts, mushrooms, peppers, croutons, tofu, raspberry vinaigrette)… but note the little pile of greens on the top!! Those are leaves from my radish plants… I thinned them out, and it was so exciting to be eating something I grew myself… so much so that I was able to ignore the fact that I don’t actually like radishes. (If you’re wondering why I’m growing them when I don’t like them, it’s because they have a very short harvest time and I have very little patience!)
That’s that for this uninspired post — hope I can actually get the chance to write out what I originally planned, because it would be kind of nice to “get it out of my system”!
Have a fabulous Tuesday!
