Starting tomorrow afternoon, we’re apparently going to start experiencing some serious winter weather, or as the Northeast would refer to it, “it’s just wintah!” But us here in the DMV area like to refer to it as the “end of days” or “Armageddon,” especially considering how all grocery stores have run out of milk and bread.
Honestly why milk and bread? If the power goes out, milk will likely spoil and there’s more to eat than just bread. Also, no offense to you milk lovers, but damn it’s gross.
Psychotic thunder snowstorms aside (that’s right, we’re getting thunder snow, jealous?), I thought I’d share some things I’ve happened upon recently dans ma vie. They may or may not be of any interest to you, but because you’ve (I’m assuming) read the first two and half short paragraphs, why the hell not read on, right?!
Matt recently finished reading the book Confessions of an Economic Hitman by John Perkins and suggested I take a crack at it, so that’s what I’m attempting to do. It took him two days to read it which means it should take me about….oh I’d say 6 months. My slow, drawn out, after work reading tends to take a while because I read and edit several items at work. That usually means reading is the last thing I want to do when I get home. But this book seems pretty damn interesting, so why not, eh?
Have you guys tried Google Inbox yet? (I’m assuming you have a Gmail account, but if you don’t, go ahead and skip to the next paragraph.) It takes a little getting used to and figuring out, but I like the new layout. You can also still Gchat in it as (I’m also assuming) you do in Gmail. There’s also a phone app for both iPhones and Androids and I must say, it has a cleaner look and feel than the Gmail app.
And last but not least I have been on the hunt – that’s right hunt not search – for a new camera bag. I wanted something more compact, easy to carry around, and most importantly not flashy. I happened upon the Domke F-5XB shoulder bag and recently bought and received it. Since I’m a small individual, this specific Domke bag fits me perfectly. They do have a variety of other sizes if you need/want something larger, but I’m trying to cut down on gear and what I carry with me so this is going to work out really well.
Ok folks, we’ll be hunkering down for Snowmaggeden or Snowpocolypse or Snow-whateverthehelltheycall it 2016 in the next few days. See you on the flip side!
