I got this instead of the Nikon I mentioned before mostly due to time constraints. I wanted to use the lens while I was visiting Boston over the holiday, and the Nikon wasn't yet available. I'm not sure when it will be available, actually. But, never mind: I'm very happy with the Sigma, though it's a bit of a bear to lug around. I'm glad my D40 body is tiny and light.
I haven’t been blogging as much since I moved out here: between my using my work laptop (running Windows) more, and not spending much time at home, I don’t compose my thoughts as much. Also, my Tumblr has reduced my attention span for blogging.
Anyway, I rode a taxi from an art opening at Krankies this evening. It was a joint show of works by Amanda Hollis and Mandy Hockensmith. As the cab pulled up, I noticed a picture of Bob of the Church of the Subgenius stencilled on the front license plate. (Front plates are not required in NC.) While riding the cab, the cabbie had a CD playing which featured a couple of guys discussing Subgenius philosophy, etc. I asked him about it, and he asked me what I knew about Bob. I said, “Not much”.
Also, just got the new version of ecto, the blogging software I use. It’s great.
