I had been thinking that maybe I’d been slacking a little in the photography department. You know, slowing down some. I just checked and I took 1,420 exposures during the month of April. So yeah, there’s that. I guess I’m not slowing down so much after all.

EDIT: I just checked and I uploaded 49 pictures to Flickr during April. I’m gonna let you do the math on that.

Going on to talk more about pictures, yes I am. Ms. Sparkles Thomas has been in possession of Brother Thomas’s camera for a while now and coming out with some remarkable results. A few of them have caught my eye – specifically, this one (because of the tonal range) and this one (because of the color of the sky). That’s not to say that her other pictures don’t have merit – no no, apparently all members of Clan Thomas are impressively artistically inclined. It’s just those two really kept calling me back and finally it really sunk in that part of what was special about those pictures was that they’re film. You know, real film. Once I realized this I told Trey that I was going to steal his old Canon film Rebel from Henry (since my lenses will fit it hooray) and maybe run a couple of rolls through it. You know, just to see. See if I can make things as pretty as Sarah Sparkles does.

Apparently all this photography-think has affected my studies ’cause there’s gonna be a B in the grades this semester. Qué lástima.

EDIT NUMBER TWO: I forgot to mention that my cat’s new hobbies are eating bugs and sleeping on top of the kitchen cabinets.

OKAY SO HEY GET THIS this is FASCINATING (you may stop reading now if you haven’t already) the other day I was pulling on my sock and apparently the edge of my pinkie toenail is sharp and I totally cut my thumb. Can you believe it? Isn’t that fascinating? I somehow managed to hurt myself with myself. Impressive!

Oh yeah and I’m going to Spain this summer OKAY BYE

Spain you say? Do tell. This is for school, no?

Comment by Trey

Just in case you didn’t already know, not all of the digital lenses fit on the film bodies. At least my kit lens from the digital will not fit on my Rebel 2000. Luckily I have an equally mediocre kit lens for the 2000 already.

Comment by Patrick

Trey: yeah, for book larnin’.

Patrick: ah, I had heard this. I put my two pimportant lenses on there last night and they seemed to work fine so I’m content.

Comment by Kevin O'Mara

“pimportant” Is that a new word to describe how your lenses are both pimpin’ and important, or just a typo? I’m not being petty, I’m just askin’, because I want to use that word I just don’t want to be the only one.

Oh, what is it that you study, again? I never got offered any trips to see foreign lands while I was in school. We just went to the City of Cookeville water treatment plant.

I didn’t invent the term ‘pimportant’ but according to the search results I’m an early adopter. It means exactly what you think it means.

My major is international business, or as they like to call it, World Cultures and Business. It’s basically business with a minor in a foreign language.

Comment by Kevin O'Mara

Well, then I suppose foreign travel would be a key component to such an education. For your sake, I sure hope that minor is in Spanish. Otherwise, your trip is going to be a rude awakening as opposed to an education. That French you learned in N’orleans isn’t going to be of much use to you.

In all seriousness, though, I’m sure you’re going to have an awesome trip and I’m already excited about seeing the photos.

I’m also excited about using pimportant, by the way. I’m really hoping to get on early with this trendy new word.

[…] So where to start? I guess I’ll start by saying I recently decided to shoot some film. As I mentioned, Sarah’s pictures got me thinking about film, and I just happened to be able to steal Trey’s camera off of Henry. […]
