Feeling Fat

I am fat.
No wonder.
After yesterday, even though I tried, really really tried to eat like a normal person, I ended up gobbling food up like there was no tomorrow.
I even went back for seconds.
Now I gotta walk like a hundred miles or something to work all them calories off!
I'll start tomorrow.
Laziness drills don't you know.
I hope you had nice Thanksgiving Day too.
Anyways, I recently got me some color film to shoot.
I don't really like color film and prefer to shoot digital when it comes to well, color.
I figured I'd try some good film in this case Kodak Ektar 100 so I took it along with me to see what it could do:

Okay I guess.
Ektar runs about $7-8 a roll so I'm not sure it's worth it, especially since digital in my opinion renders much nicer.
I've also got some Kodak Portra on the way and that stuff is supposed to be the bee's knees.
I also shot me some Ilford HP5+ which is much like Kodak Tri-X:

Seems to be a bit more finer grained but I also just switched developers from D76 to a generic form of Extol.
Film geek techno babble, excuse me.
Bottom line is it's less expensive and more eco friendly.
Boy, I ate so much I'm having a hard time bending over the keyboard.
Also, the other night I finally made it up the hill to the famous/infamous lookout above the city:

A lot has changed since I last visited oh, sometime when I was in high school way back in another life.
Now it's a merry go round of tour buses and tourists coming and a going.
More on that later.
For now, I gotta go figure out how to get rid of all this extra uh, goodness that I acquired yesterday.
The folks at The Warehouse finally took down one of my pallets so I can start getting some of my books and music.
Boy, I'm really looking forwards to that.
I was being sarcastic in case you couldn't tell.
So I better get going before my laziness training kicks in.
Second nature don't you know.

At this point, isn't digital the most "ecofriendly?"

For a second there I thought this post was going to be about your new fat bike.

Steve A, I suppose it's all relative.

JRA, if only I had the room.
