New Camera

December 8, 2015 at 7:11 pm | 1 Comment »

Got a new camera body this week. I splurged on the OM-D E-M5 mark II—an update to the original E-M5 that I have had for a couple of years. The new design fixes a few issues I had with the original so we should be seeing slightly improved, smoother video. Otherwise, the holiday season has kicked off with decorations appearing around the city and our house. Ho ho ho.


Catch Up

Yes, I’m still here. The long gap is due to computer issues. First the new iMovie had just enough changes to throw off my editing workflow. Then my hard drive died. Fortunately I didn’t lose much, thanks to backup, hence this multi-week compilation. The Fall season progressed. Daylight saving time ended. Rain started. AT&T is trying to make us pay for three weeks of service we never received. Plus my husband and cats are cute. There. All caught up!

Not sure what to theme this week. Just day to day ordinary stuff for a long married gay couple in San Francisco. Driving around in the electric i3. Cute cats. Washing the 3-series. Hiking with the guys. Deer in the woods. And other stuffs.


Fresh Week

SF Fleet Week. Ships and sailors and planes. Oh my. Cooked several vegetarian meals.Semi-annual eye doctor visit. Cute cat shots. Then Saturday, Rich tossed me out so he could clean and I took a salad over to a park overlooking the Bay and caught the air show featuring the Blue Angels. Yes, I know they represent the evil side of the US militaristic empire but they’re fun to see up close.

Here’s a catch up video. Two weeks in one. Rich reviews Scream Queens. Problems with Blue Apron have us considering cancelling our subscription. Our friend Marc showed up again. Mostly to drink my wine. Then I go on a rant about why I dislike religious proselytizers who go door to door. And we wrapped things up at the Castro Street Fair.


Leaks

Discovered a big leak in the garage Monday then didn’t record anything else until Wednesday. Food, cats, friends, and cute boys in short shorts. So much fun.


Labor Etc

Labor Day week. Brutal heatwave hit. Got jarred out of bed by the fire alarm. Turned out a sprinkler in the parking garage went off. Big mess but no real danger. Lots of cute cat shots, too


Fall Start

Start of Fall classes later in the week. So the week felt a bit schizophrenic, relaxing to start then frantic. Checked out the new-ish Drive Now i3 Rex. Interesting if only because the dark cloth interior isn’t otherwise offered in North America. Cute cat antics ahead.


Back

First week back from Hawaii. Love the cool, foggy weather. Cat cute overload. Found Anchor Meyer Lemon Lager. Bitched about the lack of LGBT protections across the country. Then happened upon an i8 wrapped in matte orange—not a good thing.


Last Morning

Final morning of our Oahu break. Four days turned out to be the perfect amount of time. Some last glimpses of Waikiki beach then checked out of the hotel and explored the Bishop Museum before heading to the airport. Flight home went by fast. Alaska Airlines proved great on both legs. Don’t take us as extravagant either. First class out of San Jose actually turned out cheaper than coach from SFO. Now back to our regularly scheduled vlogs.
