You know what I have at home? I have USB adapters galore. Lots of them connect to my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT, thereby allowing me to transfer from said Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT to my computer the many pictures I’ve taken.
I also have a USB 2.0 card reader that allows me to transfer pictures from my camera’s CF card to my computer.
And seeing as how I have such a plethora of connectors and devices with which to transfer from my camera to my computer the photos I’ve taken, you would think that I would update with great regularity my Photo of the Day feature whilst on vacation, as I seem to being doing an otherwise shitty job of keeping up with my blogging duties.
Of course, in order for that to take place, I’d have had to have remembered to pack and bring with me one of the many connectors and devices that could ostensibly be used for moving pictures of my in-progress vacation from camera to computer. And while I clearly see in my mind’s eye what appears to be an honest-to-goodness recollection of having done so, I apparently blew it.
Which is why, this morning, after
going for a run gasping and sweating my way through a moderately paced jog on the boardwalk, I hobbled into a tourist-trappy camera shop and paid $40 for a CF card reader—because, dammit, Internet, I care. I care about you, and about my blog … and about showing you why, this week, my blog isn’t getting the attention it deserves.
The reason has to do, in part, with my cohorts and I drinking copious amounts of tequila (three of these bottles have already been emptied), and, in part, with us spending copious amounts of time on the beach.
Don’t give up on me yet, people; I’ll get this place cranked back up to normal cruising altitude sooner rather than later.
