I put batteries back in my little Hexar Classic to take along with me for my colonoscopy. I don't know if I'll get a chance to use it, but I can tell you that its the only camera I'd dare take along, and it is my only camera that I have other than the Elan 7. Hopefully, I won't get arrested as a colonoscopy spy or anything. Not exactly pocket-sized but I do love that thing and that's the one camera I'm glad I never got rid of. It is one of the early models with the super quiet mode, which was later removed for copyright problems (I think).
I am fully expecting to have problems with my new arch nemisis -- the Unified Cosmodemonic Healthcare Company. I am still trying to figure out exactly what they mean by customary charges -- since what they seem to think is customery is simply what they want to pay which is about half what they charge up here on the great upper east side. Pfui. Wouldn't it be amazing if they would actually tell you ahead of time what they will pay? You know, like all other vendors.
If you are going to go for a colonoscopy get Robert Klien's CD with the song: A Colonoscopy... (who by the way went to my high school ten years before me). I think it was also an HBO special.
Having spent most of the time on the can last night as prep -- I would have thought I could have been up to stay through the Academy Awards -- but I got bored pretty quickly and went back to reading and re-reading the Sharper Image catalogue. I now know it backwards and forwards..
Bill wrote asking whether it would be Kosher to tweak the leaf in the upper left corner of Embrace to make it more of a heart -- and it's funny, although I have no memory of where that shot was done or under what circumstances, I did remember noticing the heart-like shape of that leaf.
