So it's been a while since I've posted anything. I've wanted to post, but I just haven't had anything interesting to say.

The big news in my life, of course, was receiving my YAY TACO shirt, but we all know about that, so I guess I can't really write about that any more.

Oh, I know! So, after much wailing and gnashing of teeth, I bought an iPhone. Yes, I am now firmly a Steve Jobs sackrider. The iPod was acceptable, the Apple TV was definitely pushing it, but the iPhone just puts me over the top. Next think you know I'm going to have a Macbook and will be sitting in a Starbucks, trying to type out a script for a play. OH THE HUMANITY.

That said, I love my iPhone. It's half the weight of my previous AT&T Tilt, and although slightly larger, it's about 1/3 of the thickness, which is very noticeable in my pocket. The larger screen and expandable browser windows add points.

Most importantly, though, is the Application Store. Yes, Sudoku and Tetris and some crossword puzzles were vital. However, there are some specialty Apps that I love. One of them is called Shazam, and it will identify popular music for you. Just hold your phone up to the speaker for a few seconds and it will identify the song for you.

Unfortunately, that doesn't help me with the song I've been trying to identify for the last eight years, because the last time I heard it was, well, eight years ago. It was in Rainbow Casino in Wendover, and the only lyrics I remember are "I am so lonely now" which pull up about 800,000,000,000,000 hits on Google. Oh well.

Thanks to Facebook, I found a long lost friend that I worked with 15 years ago. I met up with him last night and chatted for several hours. He now does professional photography for work. I got to check out his 70-200mm f/2.8 which caused my pants to become very sticky. I must acquire one of these somehow. And a 10-22mm f/3.5. Crap, so many lenses to buy, so little money! We're going to hang out in a few weeks and just shoot photos for fun.

Oh, and the new Batman movie was pretty tyte. I know some people find her odd looking, but I have no problem saying that I would enjoy sexual relations with Maggie Gyllenhaal. So if you're reading this Maggie, feel free to drop by.
