Yes, thrill of thrills, my new camera arrived today. Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. I was afraid that it would get lost in the chaos of cutbacks at the post office, strikes, general malaise around here, but no. The most excellent thing about this arrival, aside from the fact that I got it on ebay for 100 euros less than it costs around here is the fact that I paid for it entirely from revenue generated by Bandcamp, in particular my theatre and dance album. Oh frabjous day! And this here thang, she takes HD videos and panoramic photos and even 3d photos, so very cool. My other camera, which is a most excellent Sony as well will now go to my beloved Maria.
I am also thrilled because I mounted my other ebay purchase on my bicycle, an LED light which mounts on the wheel and displays geometric patterns which it renders based upon the number of times it passes a magnetic sensor mounted on the frame. I hope to be a Rhinestone cowboy out there on the night streets of Athens. I was even humming Rhinestone Cowboy to meself out on the bike.
And tonight, Maria comes back from Cyprus. I will be happy to have her back in my arms but I have also been content to be on muh own for a spell.
