because quite honestly this week has been too long for my liking. My toaster, camera and washing machine all broke and the only one I managed to fix was my camera (actually it was the only one I made any effort to fix but that was because it was the only one that wouldn't electrocute me) Which wouldn't be so bad if any washing at all had been done last week when my back was bad! I can't tell you how stinky the mountain of laundry currently undulating in the corner of my bedroom is but here is a clue - teenage boy x 1, full grown adult male x 1, weeks unwashed grungeywear x 2 and a cartoon style fug complete with tiny fruit flies hovering above its murky, putrescent depths!Moving swiftly on before someone thinks to call in the exterminators...I did fix my camera, huzzah, and while it's going to take a bit more work on setting the M-A-L (monster-alien-lights)up without crashing the national grid, I finally managed to take a few photos, again I say huzzah! I actually took quite a lot of exactly the same picture making a small adjustment each time and thinking I could remember which adjustment I made and so which set up worked best. Yeah right HAHAHAHA-HA, I wouldn't remember my own name if it wasn't tattooed on a handy part of George's anatomy. Anyway I digress, I know this isn't the best picture I have ever taken and I certainly can't remember which lights/camera configuration I used but at least it's a bead you haven't seen before.TaDa..and if your're thinking the title of this post is a thinly veiled reference to Battlestar Galactica you would be correct, I love it.
