I got a new camera. So I have been taking lots of pictures of random things to test it out and figure out how it works. I have not had a camera since, oh July, because sometime after that, it died it's final death. It was an old camera though.

Anyway, I thought I would post some pictures of Trick, my hamster. He is very cute. As you can see:

Trick, stuffing his face.

Running on his wheel while chewing.

Being cute in close up. Or plotting evil plots. You decide.

There you have it, my advanced photography skillz. Actually, I'm not too shabby with a camera, I just haven't had a chance to go anywhere of significance with it yet. I can't wait to take it to the mountains next summer when I am sure we will be going hiking!

Today has not been good, for me. I feel like I'm self sabotaging all the time these days. My head is so not in the game. Part of it is the cold - I have about 5% energy, and I used that all up (plus some) working for 8 hours today. But that doesn't give me any reason to eat like 10 pieces (albeit small) of chocolate at work. Barf.

Okay. The day is not a total waste. I am going to fix myself a healthy dinner and finish the day strong, despite the earlier hours. 1 2 3 GO.
