Weight and Stuff Report – 29 October 2011

Yes, well, as expected, up again today. Chinese food, a very tasty Rioja, a beer or two[1] and a wee drop of whisky can take the blame for that. It wasn’t my fault, OK? That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

I decided to walk to Tesco this morning. As I left the house, it was a bit dull, but dry. Then I felt a few half-hearted drops of rain. Then it really rained, so I got a bit wet. But at least I remembered to log my walk with the Garmin Fit app, which I can confirm locks on to the GPS signal a lot more enthusiastically than Runkeeper ever did.

Your picture for today is an example of me pushing the iPhone 4S camera a bit. The sun was low in the mostly clear sky, so I had to use the touch to set focus and exposure trick to get any detail here. As you’d expect, the sky is pretty much burned out, and there are some entertaining beams of light coming from the top left, but it does confirm that the phone is good enough to replace the compact camera that normally follows me around when I don’t have a real camera with me. This is good, because it’s one less thing to carry, and one less thing to forget to charge…

Bright light!

Bright light!

    But own up you got the bus home, I don’t blame you with three bags to carry but I was glad to see you were using reusable bags. I’m starting to sound like a stalker but I was just on the same bus right at the back and going to the stop after yours to visit my great granddaughter otherwise if I had been going to my own house I would have introduced myself as I got off at Tasty Bake. One of these days.

      Oh yes, I always get the bus home. Except for that one time when they were on strike. And I’ve been reusing bags since long before it was popular – must have learned that from my mum!

      And now I’ll be trying to remember who was on the bus…
