While everyone is scouring the internet for Black Friday deals, I'm sitting at home, taking pictures of the beautiful morning we're having in sunny Florida. There is not a cloud in the sky (unless you could the lazy two that decided to leave now for their turkey feasts), and it's a balmy 52 degrees out. Warm by New England standards, cold by Floridans. Just like the meme "Floridians be like 'its 65 degrees; get out the winter coat!'", it is hoodie weather right now, but it should warm up by the time we all start eating.
I was working with my Fotodiox Canon EOS Macro Extension last night, and although I'm still relatively trying to learn, I got a nifty little snapshot of a tearing guitar string. I know it's still a little blurry, but I wasn't fully set up - no tripod, no shutter release remote, nothing. It was just a quick "I haven't done anything macro lately, lemme play while my guitar is out". Out of the few I took, this seems cool:
As great as having a day off on a holiday is, I'm like many other Americans currently employed. I have to go to work tomorrow. Lucky for me, my business closed today (big grin). Don't mistake it though - I have worked retail in the past where my single shift turned into a double on turkey day, and then I had to turn right back around the next afternoon and beat the lines for the Friday sale. No rest for the weary, but people are suckers for a percentage off their items. I've got to work tomorrow, yes, but I really doubt people are going to come shop where I am, so I'm hoping all will be quiet on the western front. You never know, however, so I'm prepared, regardless. Hopefully I'll get to sneak out at some point for my coffee.
Yes, I like my coffee.. but when there's a Dunks every 20 minutes, it is hard to get a decent cup of joe. For a state that loves its North East snowbirds, there needs to be more Dunkin Donuts down here. You hear this, Canton? Please bring more Dunkies down to Florida. I'm not a big fan of the Seattle chain... As a former Masshole (once a Masshole, always a Masshole), I run on Dunkin, and it'd be wicked pissah for more convenient locations! Thanks!!
At any rate, for the people up north - stay safe (thousands are alleged with out power right now), stay warm and remember, someone out there is thinking of you!
