Another quote...

Andy bought some shirts online and they were too small across the shoulders.

Me: You could cut off the sleeves and have a muscle shirt since you always say it's all muscle.

Andy: No thanks. I don't want to get the ladies all tingly over me.

Hello, world!

Imagine that... December again! Tomorrow will be one year since I graduated from college and I still miss it. Anyway, that's not the point of this pointless post. I've been playing around with my new camera (my old one was pushed to its limit at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe when it got soaking wet -- good thing I brought an already dying camera) and experimenting with f-stops and shutter speeds. I know very little about photography, so I've been looking up stuff through Google and Youtube and experimenting. As you can see from my very boring array of pictures, I went on a walk and played with the camera settings. By the way, if the lighting isn't just the way you want it, or if you don't get the depth of field the way you want it, there's always Picasa. :P Cheating, I know.

Some of the fun features of my camera include this one. It's called the miniature effect and it blurs the top and bottom of the picture to create... tadaa.. a miniature effect. I'm not sure how the miniature effect really makes it look miniature, but whatever. It's still cool.
And this is when I was experimenting with the lowest F-stop. Of course, since it's cold out, there wasn't much interesting to shoot other than dead trees... and dead leaves...

Having a 14.1 zoom lens is great! This bird was sitting near the top of a very tall tree, so I took a picture of it.
Grandmother was sewing curtains today. I showed her my new camera. She wanted to know if it also does email. Nope... that's just Andy's Android phone.
The other incredibly cool effect is the fisheye lens. It's great for big buildings, landscapes...brothers...

This is Grandfather's turkey balloon.
I decided I wanted to focus only on the foot, so I edited it in Picasa. :P

As you can see, I'm not very adept at this. However, it's fun to experiment and hopefully I'll get better at using it and also learn composition better.

The End.

Today Andy got up, took a shower, went back to bed, and then took a shower again.

Tattling Blog Revisited

It has been far too long that I've updated this thing. I was reminded of it today as I sat in the peace and quiet of my room... only to be interrupted by the sounds of Andy talking to himself while playing a new, and apparently "awesome" computer game. His conversation with himself was very choppy. It went something like this
"There... Oh me needs to... oh good one.. this.. this is precious.. daaaaah... tsk... needs to hold free technology... POWAH!!! what is THAT?"

Of course, if you had Facebook, you'd know the other comments that came after that. Two of the most comment-worthy snippets of conversation were as follows:
Your toothbrush is face down on the floor." Me
"So?" Andy
"That's gross." Me
"So? It goes face up on your teeth anyway." Andy
"Huh?!" Me
"WHAT?!" -- me
"They're coming at me! We must get men! Oh noooo!" Andy

this is better than the tattling on Andy blog...

Sorry, make that three, I can't leave this one out:
"I miss the tattling on Andy blog!" Andy
"You're so conceited." me
"That always made for such a great laughs." Andy

Yes, he did insert the extra 'a' no matter what anyone says.

You'd never guess from this blog, but Andy IS done college and is, supposedly, gainfully employed (I wouldn't know because his job is so top-secret... maybe he really is just flipping pancakes in an alley and eating caramel popcorn and cotton candy all day).

Quote from Andy:
"I'm just such an awesome hunk of man flesh!"

Today at church...

"Susie, you're a better woman than I am." -- Andy

Well THAT'S good to know.

His latest song is:
"I got peas, oh they're little and green!
I got peas, oh they're little and green!
I got peas, oh they're little and green in my bowl!!!"

Tsk tsk tsk. Shame on him! Here is a selection:
