fell asleep after dinner and now my body clock is all banged up. will attempt to remedy the problem with vast amounts of chicken wings and iced tea.
i didn’t realize this until now but did you know that there are currently two Chinese manufacturers in 125cc Grand Prix motorcycle racing? yeah, i’ll wait for that to sink in a bit.
the two companies in question are Loncin and Haojue who are fourth and sixth, respectively, in the manufacturers championship which includes the likes of Aprilia, Derbi, KTM and Honda.
i never thought i’d live to see the day.
i never really thought about this until Beka brought it up earlier tonight but why do we yawn? what purpose(s) does it serve?
so what i got in the mail yesterday is this: a Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF-S Zoom-Nikkor. if that sounds like a bunch of nonsense to you, that’s because it is. i won’t bore you with details but i will say this: while utterly fantastic in every conceivable aspect (except weight), the 17-35mm is just another tool. the sole purpose of its existence is to make my life easier so i can focus on far more important things like taking photos. it’s as simple as that.
time to get my money’s worth.
took delivery of some brilliant new glass today. more on this later.
what a great weekend for racing :D
is it just my imagination or has there been a ridiculously massive increase of Indiana-registered cars in Chicago within the past few years? i swear, the place is absolutely crawling with the hateful little things.
i honestly cannot think of any food which could be ruined by adding lemon.
at the risk of sounding like a giddy girl who just bought another fake but oh-so-convincing Gucci purse, i just took delivery of a new camera bag and i’m really excited about it.
of course, i still need to finish adapting it for my needs, work out whatever kinks may arise, do some thorough field testing, and just get used to the bloody thing before i can take it out on assignment with any measure of confidence.
what’s more ridiculous than a $100 pair of jeans? $100 jeans that come prefaded and preripped.
