My adopted city is off it's collective rocker today with love for a baseball team, while I couldn't give less of a shit. Sorry to all of you baseball/redsox fans out there, but it's true.
I find baseball supremely boring.
Thus, I will not mention it again.
Life goes on.
Work is alternately pissing me off, and offering me little glimpses of potential goodness. *sigh* I hate being jerked around. I'm starting to be tempted to look around again for what else is out there, but there's so much potential here that I would hate to just walk away. At the same time, it's sucking right now. I'm on the phones for 5+ hours a day. 5+ hours of mind-numbing boredom. Every day.
I supposed it's better than 5+ hours of sheer terror every day...
I've had a good few evenings at home, the curtlepine and I are getting along even better than usual lately, and it's nice. I think we're starting to adjust to where we are right now, settle down after the move, and get used to our new occupations.
Lunar eclipse last night was cool, I'm wishing I had a good tripod for my camera so I could have tried some time-lapse shots or multiple exposures. perhaps I'll track down a benbo. I'm debating trading in my laptops for an apple laptop, but I'm also wanting a digital SLR, and I can't afford both. Since i have a working laptop, i think i'll just wait a little longer. Plus there's a great deal on Canon's digital rebel that's running until Jan 1st, so I have some time to swing a REALLY good deal on that if I'm patient.
Oh, and I need to brew beer next weekend.
Crap, that's when meg's parents are here.
guess I'll do it later that week.
MMmmmm. Vanilla cardamom christmas red ale.
Life is going, I'm comfortable here in boston, and things are going ok.
For the most part, I don't care about sports, but even I felt caught up in the excitement. However, this area has always been my home so it's hard not to feel happy for the team.
Anyway, I hear you on the digital SLR. I absolutely want one. But, for now, I'm scouting for more classes in the darkroom.
Have you checked out the Digital Rebel deal?
$100 mail in rebate on the camera, and if you buy qualifying lenses, you can double or triple your total rebate.
Course the qualifying lenses start at like $400, but they're worth it. And they hold their value.
For less than $1000, you can get a digital rebel with the kit lens (18mm-55mm), and a 28-135 canon lens with image stabilization.
I'd say that's a pretty damn good deal.
I'm just hoping that someone has a good sale on the rebel between now and 2005. I'll be all over it.
me to the Pie last night, "so, what's this game with the Red Sox?"
*out of it*
i'm with you, though, not big on the baseball. much with the boring. though, i DO enjoy going to a game if only for the chance to sit in the stadium and people-watch.

*waves miniscule red sox flag* ;)
Is this the christmas-y ale I saw and forwarded the recipe for? If so, I'm drooling vicariously. I've also (and Meg will love this) realized over the past week that I love, L0o0vE Guinness. And I used to hate dark beer. So maybe there's hope for me after all. It probably didn't hurt that my first taste of Guinness was an Extra Stout at the age of fourteen. That sort of ruined it for, what, a decade? ;)
yeah, I think that's the one. It was the red ale with vanilla and cardamom. ^_^
Oh, and guinness is waaay overrated.
compared to good porters/stouts it's like bud compared to a good microbrew.

Yeah, but I can't get too crunchy too fast. For someone who makes a cross against evil when faced with a lineup of dark beers, it's a start. :)
