Blaze orange, and computer work [Saturday, Oct. 30, 2004, 9:18 pm]
Today was the first day of hunting season. It wouldn't take a genius to figure it out. I walked into the diner during work this morning, and most of the tables created a sea of blaze orange.
This one guy's outfit was very interesting. He was wearing camoflouge everything: pants, shirt, jacket. And on top of all that, he had on a bright orange vest (because it's required). I just found that very oxymoronish, in a way. Almost like his outfit was saying, "I'm trying to blend in - you can't see me," and the vest said, "HEY, LOOK AT ME, WHEEEE!!"
My dad and brother went hunting this morning as well. They didn't get anything. I have mixed ideas as to whether I want them to or not. For one thing, if they get one (or 2, *gag*), my mom will probably be serving us venison from now until the next miliennium, and you know how I feel about that icky stuff. On the other hand, a dead deer would make for very interesting photo material, not to be morbid or anything.
Speaking of photos (gee, can't I do an entry anymore without bringing up the subject of photography), I was finally able to scan some of the prints I made in class. And even more exciting, I now have my own domain! The address is Http://perpetual-individuality.com. That's where my pictures have been posted. Under "Photography", and then "black and white photos". So, needless to say, I spent many hours working on that site today. And after that I just paced around my room for a while (which has a grand total of 3 steps worth of walking space in it), as I was listening to my Return of the King soundtrack. AS IF I HAD NOTHING BETTER TO BE DOING!!
Actually, I did do my math today. And some history. So I'm good. But I still have things to be doing. So goodbye.
