    Well, tomorrow...or today now I guess., the high is going to be 2. So I doubt I'll get anything outside, but I see a lot of shots of random chit within my eyesight inside coming up. lol.

    I do have a shoot thurs night with a lovely lady, and my pinup shoot is Sat so this is going to be a fun week. Makes up for the last two months sucking.

    :)

    You are correct in pluralizing the word jacket, as I'll be wearing two. lol

    It is very sunny out, so I want to find a spot to take a photo where there is no snow and make it look like a nice summer day, and title it "Trickery" lol

    lmao, now it's 0, which apparently is call for a new adjective. So 1 degree is "very cold" but 0 degrees is "bitterly cold" I'm glad weather.com keeps my adjectives straight for me.

    That's when you do what I do when I can't use a lens right away and go all NEWB style and start taking pictures of EVERYTHING I see in my house.

    Granted, I don't even dump the card... I format it.. but it's fun to just use it.

    Although pix of the KITTEH get uploaded.

    Cause... you know... he's mah KITTEH! :lmao:
