I had originally intended to just stand in front of the camera and take a photo of my new t-shirt… but the resulting photo was duller than a nunnery. I went to get one of my American plug converters, and started playing around with it. I tried to get it into my mouth, but it wouldn’t fit — and then I toyed with the idea of sticking it to my t-shirt and taking a close-up photo — kind of MIXED…

Perhaps I should give up my writing job and paint insane-looking froghugmonsters instead… Yesterday [This image was originally uploaded to Flickr]

No daffodils were harmed in the making of this photograph. (The bent ones in the foreground were like that before I got there!) I’m going to try and take a few more early-morning photos in the coming weeks/months. Early sunlight is lovely, especially in the spring when it’s at such a low angle.

… ha, ha, ha. I originally wanted this to be just my eyes and forehead, but my face just wouldn’t comply! I took about 20 photos, and this was the best — a word I use very loosely indeed. Perhaps destiny is having its wicked way with me, though. Maybe I’m meant to take awful self portraits this year. Maybe this is just the next stop on my journey to take the worst self portrait in the world. Oh, and…

On weekends, rather than drinking my customary cafetiere of coffee (500ml of brewed coffee really is too much for one person, unless you’re a fan of The Shakes), I have a cup of tea. I’ve heard horrible stories about people with caffeine dependence, and feeling completely down and devoid of energy without their coffee fix. This is my way of controlling my caffeine dosage, I guess. Staying on top of the drug. One tea bag has about 50mg of caffeine…
