I spent a lot of time, when my power was out, sorting things and tidying up. I tidied near my computer and found (well, it wasn't lost but I'd put it in a box when it was given to me) a little silver warding-off-the-evil-eye charm that Amanda had brought me from Turkey (Turkey? I think it was Turkey) years ago. It looked good next to my African hippopotamus that Enjah sent me - o, excellent object! The other thing that is in that picture is a snippet of Super8 movie I made (snippet must've been left from the editing). I still have several Super8 cartridges sitting in my fridge waiting for me to rise up again in full-on moviemaking mode (extremely unlikely). I used to buy film equipment from the thrift shops years ago and in fact gave a huge box of 8 and Super8 equipment (a box big enough for several people to hide in) to the local film oranisation (the Film Ranch). I also used to buy movies from thrift shops, so I have some groovy ones. Alas, that pastime is behind me, but damn, it was a blast while it lasted.
