Here's something totally new and original -- I bought some new cameras. I bought a Baby Holga 110 micro camera for Mr. Risk. It's literally the size of the 110 cartridge. We'll see what comes out of it. I've sort of forced him to become the Keeper of 110 film by buying him a lot of 10 rolls of it off ebay recently. He likes the tiny cameras but the images it produces are pretty grainy and shit. I thought maybe a new camera would inspire him to get through the rolls.

I also joined the ranks of the many and bought a Lomo LC-A. I'm sort of off 35mm film now but we'll see. It will be some time before either of these cameras arrive so I'll be working on finishing at least one roll from each of the box cameras.

This weekend is the May 24 (pronounced May Two-Four) long weekend except it's not May 24. May 24 is next weekend. This makes no sense to me. I can't wrap my head around it. Who's in charge of making these decisions anyways?

Things I associate with May 24:

  • Lakeside Park by Rush "Everyone would gather on the twenty-fourth of May. Sitting in the sand to watch the fireworks display. Dancing fires on the beach, singing songs together. Though it's just a memory, some memories last forever."

    Ya I'm from St. Catharines and I can't tell you how many times in my life people have said "Hey like that Rush song eh?." Yes people, it's just like that Rush song.

  • Guys who drink entire two-fours of Labbatt's Blue by themself.

  • Frisbee. I fucking hate frisbee. Hate isn't a strong enough word. I just don't enjoy it at all.

  • My cousin brought a hairdryer and an entire arsenol of styling products with her camping... in a tent. The rain and wind that weekend was torrential.

  • Ten years ago, on a May 24 weekend, I went to my aunt and uncle's trailer and it was WAY more equipped than my apartment was at the time... Which wouldn't have been hard to surpass.

  • In these parts May Two-Four is also known as Planting Weekend. Don't enter a garden centre unless you want to be caught in insane lineups. It's supposed to be safe to plant stuff now because we've entered the frost free time. Looking out the window right now I'm finding that difficult to believe.
