The Seder is now officially done with. It went pretty late. Rituals read from books have never really been my thing. Rituals in general aren’t really my thing. I actually hate singing happy birthday or the national anthem with a group of people, it makes me feel ridiculous.

Adam’s Aunt who held the Seder tonight gave us tickets for the Blue Jays’ opening game. It was actually, strangely, quite a lot of fun, considering none of the family who went were interested in baseball. We found our seats and decided to sit in the farthest back row on our side of the Skydome instead of in our seats (it wasn’t at all full) and watched some completely drunk Jays fan scream things at the Detroit Tigers until his voice was gone. Also we marvelled at how the whole place didn’t quite look real. We’re thinking about going back once in a while this summer because the tickets in the section we were in are only 9$ and the experience was actually a lot of fun. Cheaper than going to a movie or the zoo. Next time I’ll bring my camera.

Oh yeah… my camera. I haven’t been much for taking photos lately. Something between being unhappy, being freezing cold most of the time when outside, and generally bored with my surroundings. I took a couple of snapshots with Jordy’s digital camera today, but it only made me miss the control I have with my camera. I can’t go back to a point and shoot anymore. It just feels wrong. Which, of course, means I need to spend about 2000$ on a camera. Someday.

That and a Mac. Someday.

    I can give you a PowerMac 7600 if you want it… It can run OS 9… it can’t run OS X… it’s a little too old, (PowerPC 604 before the G3) but it should be able to run most OS 9 apps. It doesn’t have USB or firewire, so it probably won’t be useful to you…

    but I’ve got it if you want it… I can bring it up when we come up for kraftwerk (which I have the tix for, btw…) along with the enlarger[1]…

      Hehehehe you’re right… that joke just doesn’t get old.

      That sounds like an upgrade from my current mac laptop, which I still use for writing. And the 7600 might even be able to go to websites that have javascript instead of dying a death of many bombs when I try. 😉

      I don’t exactly know what I want to do with a mac besides photography stuff… I’m still scanning on Adam’s computer, which is way faster than mine. I figure that eventually I’ll need a mac for quality photo-editing or something. Would it run photoshop okay?

      I don’t really know anything about Firewire.

      I guess I’m just trying to figure out if I *could* use it. And I just woke up so I’m rambling more than anything else.
