I got the new camera in the mail Friday. I decided to get the cheapest one that was better than my previous one. So I went from 8 megapixels to 10 and got a better zoom blah blah blah and it only set me back $78 with tax and shipping. Of course then there was the $15 memory card I had to get but still it was all done for under a hundy. Not bad, right? I haven't taken very many pictures except of Georgie since that's the only interesting subject to photograph around here lately. Friday night was fun going out to eat with spouse. We did our usual sharing of a bunch of appetizers. This is not to economize (the bill was still over $200) but to get the maximum tasting experiences out of the event. It was really good but some of the taste combinations left me scratching my head a bit. BBQ octopus with hummus? Nacho cheese chips with tuna tartare? Why again are we combining these?
Today is day 7 of the two week non-stop workathon. I haven't been stressing really, though the cold sore I got might indicate differently. At least I get the cold sore inside my nose. Still awfully painful but thankfully largely invisible to others as oozing pus is easily mistakable for a little runny nose snot. (Are you eating at the moment? In that case, please accept my apologies.)
Couple things I've learned this week. Regularize is indeed a word. I had been certain it wasn't. Means something similar to resolve. Also, there is a distinction between arguably and unarguably. In the former, you can argue for or against that which is being described while in the latter, there is no way to argue against it. For example, Montreal is arguably the greatest city in Canada and it is unarguably the largest bilingual city in Canada.
Have a lovely Monday all!
