June 22nd


Apparently it's big news that Kodak is discontinuing production of a film that has been made for 74 years. (Note to news people-please stop playing the Paul Simon song over and over and over. Momma done took the Kodachrome away already!) The thing that they aren't mentioning is that Kodak recently introduced a better color film using newer technology-Ektar. Kodachrome is just taking its place in history and going the way of the Brownie camera and 8 mm home movies. Yes, sales of film have declined drastically due to the rise of digital, but there are people who still shoot film. I'm not one of them, but my Uncle Ed tried a digital SLR a few years ago and didn't like it at all, went back to film. There are at least two people that I know of in the photo group who shoot film, although one prefers B&W. Film isn't dead, it's just finding a different group of users.

I had a good outing with the meet-up group at the Glider Port yesterday. I'm still viewing and editing photos, I'll put them up in my Flickr Galleries when I'm done. It takes a while to go through 385 pictures!

June 1st


This would be for the uber-rude, conceited arrogant butt head that I was supposed to have an interview with today. Another man who was almost peeing all over himself over my resume. My experience, my qualifications, I sound so perfect! He asked me to come for an interview at noon.

I got there on time. He was busy according to the receptionist (who was at least as old as me). I noticed as he ran back and forth between two offices that he looked at me and his lip curled up in disgust. Must be the grey hair-nothing else could be that noticeable from 20 feet away. I bathed, I put on make up, I was dressed better than any other person I saw walking around the office.

After leaving me sitting for a half an hour he came out and said that he had a sore throat and needed to go to the doctor, but he would call me later.

Of course, he didn't. He's an asshole. I hope he ends up hiring a mindless bimbo with dyed hair and fake boobs who will screw up all of the loan files. It would be even better if she embezzled money and offended all of his clients. I hope his karma bites him in his arrogant behind.
