January 2006

Too much stupid going around.

I just got a call from a recruiter who thought that "Vancouver, BC CA" on my résumé meant I was looking for work in Vancouver, Baja California, or California. She seemed genuinely stunned that I didn't want to even consider living in Los Angeles. Me living in L.A. is about as likely as a bonspiel on the Los Angeles River.

The Scottish Play

"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow; a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."

Games to Play on Transit #9

You won't get to play this one often, but I just did.

Watch a couple of suburban yahoos seriously offend an older east Indian man (I missed the offending comment or action).

Listen as the old man seriously cusses out the yahoos with some "colourfully" translated insults.

Watch as one of the yahoos gets up and spits at the old man, precipitating a full-blown fist-fight.

At this point the driver pulls over and puts the yahoos off the bus. One of the yahoos decides to swing around and take a Parthian shot at the old man that nearly knocks him down.

Sleep

My ability to tolerate stupidity (and therefore the great bulk of humanity) is directly related to how well rested I am.

I am not, at this point, at all well rested and I am on a suburban bus.

There is Always Something to Do

I just finished adding a few of the photos from Sunday's shoot to my Model Mayhem pictues page and realised that I really should pick some other photos to go there. I'd don't have any good runway examples.
