Yesterday I finally picked up the macro lens I’ve been wanting since I bought my camera. It’s not as nice as the 100 mm macro lens, but that was way out of my price range. Instead I got the Nikkor Micro AF-S 60 mm f/2.8, and I absolutely love it! Just playing with it a little this morning I can tell already that it does exactly what I want it to do, and will most likely have a permanent place on my camera. Awesomesauce!

Things I Love Thursday

  • My Creative Cursing book.
  • Having my Guitar Hero 5 back and fixed. I really missed it.
  • 50 Shades
  • Movie dates with Twi-Whore
  • Porcupine meatballs! It’s been years since I made them.

The natural number following 199 and preceding 201

This, folks, is my 200th post. Strange, I know. I never thought, when I started this blog, that I would keep it going, or make it to this many posts for that matter. In honor of my 200th post I thought I’d post some random facts about the number 200.

From Wikipedia:

The number appears in the Padovan sequence, preceded by 86, 114, 151 (it is the sum of the first two of these).

The sum of Euler’s totient function φ(x) over the first twenty-five integers is 200.

200 is the smallest base 10 unprimeable number – it can not be turned into a prime number by changing just one of its digits to any other digit. It is also a Harshad number.

Two hundred is also:

  • A common ISO-standard film speed for photographic films. However, 200 speed film is being phased out in consumer films in favor of faster films.
  • A denomination of the euro note. The 200 euro note was designed by Robert Kalina.
  • The size of one side of the main square in Kraków, Poland (200 m×200 m)
  • 200 MeV is the temperature of quark-gluon plasma phase transition.
  • The name of a car made by the Rover Group — the Rover 200.
  • An HTTP status code indicating a successful connection.
  • The sum of dollars given in the classical Monopoly game to a player passing Go.
  • A cholesterol level of 200 and below is considered “Desirable level corresponding to lower risk for heart disease”
  • “200” is the title of an episode of the television show Stargate SG-1.
  • The number of NASCAR races won by Richard Petty.
  • A Year.
  • A vehicle that has reached 200 mph.
  • The North West 200, a motorcycle race held in Northern Ireland.

Twilight Tuesday

Even with all the new Details magazine pictures out there, it feels like I just can’t seem to get a good Twi-fix. Sure there’s always fan fics, but those only go so far, especially when two end at the same time. Then there’s the waiting for updates, and those always seem to occur infrequently and in sync, no matter what I’m reading.

To make matters worse Twi-Whore has forbidden me from watching Twilight till the New Moon release. I know she’s only doing it cause she’s trying to get back at me for not letting her go see New Moon again the week before it ended. She plays dirty. Must be why I hate love her.

Plus there’s all the photos of the supposed leg hitch, and while I shouldn’t have, I accidentally on purpose saw them. All of them. And they were hot, and now I’m attempting to regrow my Eclipse Twymen, again. How I’m going to last till the end of June, I have no idea. However, I do know that watching the trailer does not, a Twymen, break. When we go to Remember Me on March 13, I’m sure we’ll squee louder than anyone else in the theater, if anyone does, in fact, squee.

So while I impatiently wait for Remember Me to premier, the Eclipse trailer to show and my Twymen to regrow, I’ll have to keep reading my fan fics, and look at leg hitch photos to get my fix. And my plethora of Rob porn. Yes. That should do it. I hope.

Friday 5

Hello, and welcome to this week’s Friday 5, Rules.

  1. Be honest: what are some rules you have for yourself that don’t really make much sense? I can’t eat Sweet Potatoes because I think they will give me kidney stones.
  2. What rules of questionable sense did your parents have for you when you were young? I wasn’t allowed to be friends with certain people. Really that did nothing to stop me.
  3. What’s a rule most people (if not all people) seem never to obey? The golden rule.
  4. There are no rules governing the giving and receiving of Valentine’s Day gifts, but what rules should there be? There should be thought put into it.
  5. If the Golden Rule says you should do unto others as you’d have others do unto you, what would the Silver and Bronze rules say? If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all. And never tell a lie.

Thanks for participating, and may your weekend rule!
