Amicelli Wangu

This week we finally let Jason the Grouch out of his barrel on the balcony. Now that the weather is warming up, there's really no point making him stay out there.

Also this week, I polished off the last of the Easter candy my mom gave me. I love the Cadbury caramel eggs, and the Lindt eggs, but my favorite are the Amicelli!

Imagine a Pepperidge Farm Pirouette -- it's the thin, cylindrical, butter cookie filled with some kind of sugary goo. Usually the goo is chocolate, or french vanilla stuff or (my favorite) hazelnut-flavored chocolate.

Now ask yourself, "How could I improve upon the near-perfect Pirouette?" What could possibly be better than a thin butter cookie filled with hazelnut chocolate? How about dunking the whole thing in chocolate? Yeahh..... oh man... they're good.

And, two other fun events: I got to go to the VocalPoint concert on Thursday. It was awesome! I had no idea how fun it would be. I loved their Christmas songs, and their reproduction of Vitas was pretty impressive. My two favorite songs were Grace Kelly ("I could be brown, I could be blue....") and September. Fantastic!

And last night, I went to Classical 89's showing of the silent movie: The General with Buster Keaton. They had the organist accompanying the action throughout, and we got to boo at the villain and cheer on the hero -- it was hilarious! Look for tickets next year.

That is all.

Happy Easters!

You do a lot of macro work with your camera. What are you shooting with? I'm assuming you've got a dedicated macro lens... that or a very fancy point and shoot. I can never tell these days as technology keeps screaming along.

In any case, my macro lens is probably my most used lens. I think my photography teacher is a little sick of it.

I love macro shots too!

I use a Sony Cybershot DSC-W70. Just a nice point-and-shoot with good lighting. I've been very pleased (and actually quite surprised) with the camera.
