Me, Kamraan, and Kim went to visit Kim’s friends from Columbia for New Year’s Eve. It was a pretty good time, I met some nice people, but Kim’s party last year was better because I knew most of the people there. All of the friendly girls at this party seemed taken. I watched the ball drop on TV, played some pool with Kamraan, fooled around with my new camera a bit, watched some of Garden State again, and then hit the sack. Not a bad evening, but not particularly exciting either.
While we were waiting at Lia(?)’s house before going to the party, I saw Megan Slankard on this “How Not To Dress” makeover show. I got to talk to her in person a little when she played at the EFF Freedom Fest while I was interning with the EFF in San Francisco, so I felt happy to see her on TV! I felt bad, however, because basically her style before going on the show was just jeans, a t-shirt, and Converse sneakers, and I thought she looked fine in that laid-back style. The makeover people wanted to put her in these funky dresses and make her wear high-heels (which will screw up her back no doubt), and I’m sure Megan was happy to be on the show because she got $5000 to spend, but I just didn’t like them harshing on her style. You should choose your own style, and I think it would be great if she became famous without having to dress like a pop princess.
In other news, I am in love with my Konica Minolta DiMage X50! Great little compact 5 megapixel camera: the internal zoom and a sliding lens-cover that is also an on-switch make it a good pocket camera. You will be seeing a lot more pictures on my blog in the future 😉
