Stephan the idiot [Oct. 7th, 2007|10:03 pm]

The comic will be delayed a while longer due to my utter stupidity.

A few weeks ago I bought a new camera to replace my old 2 megapixel toy. Now I have a 7.1 megapixel & optical zoom pride and joy. Well, I haven't given it a proper trial yet, so at 11:20am today I was heading out to the local iced tea shop and decided "Why not bring the camera and snap a few shots along the way?"

You see... your friendly neighbourhood foxaroo has never learned to do anything in moderation. A short distance along the footpath I thought, "Hey! I could photograph this... and that... and that.... and that..."

"This" begins with a location some distance off the beaten track, and "that" involves a detour which in fact is entirely in the opposite direction to where I should have been going. Presumably anyone accustomed to driving a car would recognise the excessive walking, but one thing I share with the kangaroo species is the blind instinct of wanderlust and the legs that support it. Another shared trait is a skeletal structure barely able to support my (overweight) body.

At 2:30pm I staggered home, aching in every bone, and would have been dehydrated if I'd not finally visited the sought-after tea shop.

I'd post some of the photos, but I'd need to upload them to photobucket and it's 10:20pm now. Maybe later in the week.

So, for the next 48 hours all my friends are welcome to reply to this post beginning with any of the following words: "Cretin, Dimwit, Fool, Half-wit, Idiot, Imbecile, Jerk, Moron, etc"

You got yourself a digital camera? Say good-bye to life ... Mwahahahahahaha ... Oh, you have a web comic, you already did say good-bye. ;-)

A agree with sleepyjohn. If it is fun, it isn't stupid. Obviously you've had fun. :D

I bought a 2.0 megapixel unit about 5 years ago, but now I have a fairly decent camera. I wouldn't worry about me spending too much time with it; as you can see there's not a tremendous amount to photograph nearby and I have no car.

Yes I have a web comic, and hopefully I'll have the next episode ready soon as evidence of all the work that's gone into the current scene.

Yiffing, drugs and PC games are fun too. :P Thankfully I'm only addicted to the latter.
