The main goal of the weekend was catching up on my sleep. I’ve been a zombie all week. Not having 2 days in a row off really threw off my sleep schedule, which is easily disturbed as it is. I have to work next Saturday, and I think I’ll just take Monday off.
For some reason I thought the second season of Pushing Daisies was coming out on June 21, which makes no sense as the last episode just aired last weekend. So I was all set to buy it from Amazon, then realized oh hey, that’s not until next month. So instead I bought an Oktomat camera, because umm, they’re about the same price and it was in the budget? I don’t know, it was kind of spur-of-the-moment, even though it is a camera I’ve been planning on acquiring for a while. A lot of the reviews complain that its junk; but a lot of people say that about the SuperSampler, and mine still works fine.
That’s pretty much the last camera I wanted that I can buy without feeling pangs of remorse — I want an LC-A and a Lubitel, but they’re about $250 and $350, respectively. The LC-A was 25% off at Lomography.com for one day on June 19, to celebrate its 25th anniversary, and I was really tempted, but in the end just couldn’t justify it. I’ve decided I don’t need a Colorsplash, because my Diana’s flash came with a bunch of colored gels. And I don’t really see the point of a Fisheye: it’s kind of a one trick pony, and I’m not especially enamored of that one trick.
I called Phil yesterday to wish him a Happy Father’s Day, and of course I wound up speaking to my mother for even longer. She’s all excited about us coming out for Granny’s 90th birthday in August. Between this trip; Netflix sending me When The Levees Broke; the first season True Blood DVDs; and all these transcripts I keep getting from like, Thibodaux High School and University of Louisiana Lafayette, I think the universe is trying to tell me something.
