Queen of the Blurry Photograph

Blast! I missed Gilmore Girls again! Why is it that whenever I come across a show I like, I invariably forget what day it's on?

Griffin House is going to be playing London in a few weeks -- it's a pity I can't go, esp. since anonypooh and freakspawn have already voiced their intention of being there. Julia introduced me to his music on the drive up to Scotland, and it sounded quite good...He was also really quick about friending me back on myspace, and now I feel like a bad, bad friend for not going to his gig, but I still owe Lare £44 and Pat £52, and with my future as uncertain as it is at the moment, I just can't see how I could squeeze it in...

As to my recent CoRo adventure, I'd taken my new digital camera with me on my trip, but I might as well not have bothered: not only do the batteries on it run out like you wouldn't believe, but after inserting a memory card, I found out that the slot was faulty...or it must be since the card seemed okay when we tested it in Julia's camera. After that, I just couldn't be bothered, really...

Here's one of Common Rotation on their first night in the Troubadour -- I'm not sure when it was taken exactly, but I think it was quite early on in the set:

And here's one of Corn Mo in the middle of performing Havi Nagila Monster in Glasgow -- Queen of the Blurry Photograph, that's me -- this is my clearest shot of him! The rest is just awful.

Your new digital is not a Hewlett Packard by any chance is it? My daughter got a new HP just before she went to Australia (bad timing, but her Fuji had just died) and it only held charge for less than 24 hours. She took it back on her return, and the shop gave her a replacement.

My Fuji will only take about 20 pictures to a pair of batteries - but it is very old.

It is...and less than 24 hours sounds about right...I'm still much more comfortabe with my trusty manual, which is an Olympus. Years of faithful service, never had any problems with it -- not bad for a dinky little camera like that!

Mine's HP too, and the battery life is crap too.

Must be what they call a class problem, then...

Kat's replacement HP is better - not perfect, but better.

I am going to buy me a new one sometime - I have decided not an HP!

I'm thinking of putting mine up on eBay...though obviously, without mentioning its tendency of making the batteries go flat within a day...And no, I don't think that's deceitful -- HP didn't tell me that either when they sold me the damn thing. And I work for them!
