Arrival

The camera arrived today – the batteries are charging…

Spent the morning spending money at a nursery… the plant selling type… I bought a Cherry Blossom tree

I’m now addicted to series one of The West Wing.

I missed seeing little John over the weekend, because he’s been exposed to the dreaded Chickenpox – I’ve never had it and really, it’s too late now.

Want to see Nicole Holofcener’s Friends with Money.

G-Wiz goes pink

A pink one and on the same street as the last one.

Jumping up and down

I’m excited now – received an unexpected email saying the camera has been dispatched already!

My teeth hurt

Any connection with my teeth hurts. Imagine a wire wrapped around a tooth and someone pulling it, then multiply the feeling – gush, I hear you saying, that sounds rather like a form of torture, not something you’d pay for…

Well as consolation and to take my mind off it, I’ve placed the order for the camera. However, the first place I tried although their website said they had some, they had sold out, they recommended two other places, but neither of them had any left either. As I can’t phone the place I’ve ordered it from, I’m trying not to get too excited until it’s dispatched after the weekend, until then I’m not going to be convinced they actually have one in stock.

I made the mistake of taking a look at some comments about it and they range from fantastic to every picture comes out blurry. I should learn not to read these things.

Cannes

According to Late Review Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette sounds like it might be good, despite the French press booing at the Cannes screening.

Gappy future

I had my Ortho appointment today, I’d been looking forward to it in an odd sort of I want to get this thing moving way. He changed both wires. I now have much thicker square wires, apparently square wires can’t slip. They are supposed to open my mouth out and I can expect to get some gaps, in fact my two front teeth, which have always been packed tight together already have a gap between them, in 5 hours! And I don’t have to go back for three months… All rather sore right now, although I did manage to eat.

I have also decided finally on a digital camera, which has been such a long saga. I went to have a look at the new model I thought I was going to get, luckily I was in Selfridges and their photo department is in the basement. When I tested the camera it needed the flash and seemed very slow. They had one of the camera’s I was going to get before and I compared the two and the old model is so much better – seems to be faster and feels much more comfortable to hold – Judy I’ve finally decided for sure, just in time I hope.

Blogiversary

Frizz is a year and one day old. I’ve enjoyed the blogging thing. It’s now the longest diary of any sort I’ve kept. It’s been a great place to rant, remember and document. It’s been interesting to see what grabs attention, braces being by far the most popular recently. It’s made me think about some of the things I’ve done, instead of just saying, next. It’s reminded me to take photographs. I’ve even learnt a bit of html and updated my geek gene. It’s introduced me to other blog’s, which I’ve enjoyed reading and which have informed me about life, art, politics and OK some gossip too. And it’s meant I’ve been a little bit ‘out there’, which has been a big deal and feels so good. So a very big thank you to those who are still reading and for all the encouraging words.

Thank U

A big thank you to those who came out yesterday. It was a shame about the sky, too cloudy to see Jupiter – another time perhaps, but it was lovely company, just what was needed.

Memories

Tuesday, Sandy to the vet with constipation and a couple of what thankfully turned out to be only fatty cysts. The poor thing hated being there, except there is a weighing machine, which she obediently stepped onto and stayed for enough time to get a reading. It was like she knew what to do and then I remembered that my Dad used to take her in just to weigh her. It was a bittersweet moment.
