Birthday In Absentia

Yellow Flower

Today is my mother’s birthday. She would’ve been 63. I went up to the nearby food mart this morning to grab half a dozen samosas to celebrate. I don’t know if my mother had ever had any samosas in her life, but I know she would’ve liked it.

To mark her 63rd birthday, I’ve decided to open my humble photoblog, Chromatic Life, for public consumption today. I used to have a domain for it, but I didn’t get to work on it before the domain expired. Yeah, I suck.

I’m using Pixelpost to power my photoblog, which I highly recommend. If you can’t be bothered to install any script or just don’t have the web space to build one, Shutterchance seems like a good alternative. Shutterchance is more photoblog-ish than Flickr-ish in nature because you can only publish one photo a day, but it’s free and you get a nice URL to go with it.

Anyway, I hope I’ll be able to keep posting to my photoblog because the last time I had one, it didn’t last very long. Wish me luck!


Can I just say “Untitled”?

— I’ve never been in an ambulance until last Monday. I sat in the front seat. Would’ve been cool if it was only a joyride and not because your better half is in an excruciating pain.
— I’m still trying to figure out how to make it to the hospital by bus in the shortest time possible.
— I have already figured out that the hospital is only two turns away from our apartment.
— The bus ride to the hospital always feels longer than the ride back home.
— I like how you can get a transfer ticket. That way you only have to pay one bus fare even though you have to hop on two buses to get to where you want to go.
— I think I know how to get to wherever I want to go in Kitchener-Waterloo area by bus now.
— CTV must’ve screwed up last night because I think I watched the second episode of the new season of Grey’s Anatomy last night instead of the season premiere.
— I’ve been posting Troy’s daily progress (and setbacks) in his blog because his friends read it and I though they’d like to know.
— I hope Troy will make a speedy recovery and can go home soon. I’ve never felt this lonely and alone since my mother passed away.
— Well, I’d better make my lunch before getting ready to go to the hospital. I’m tired of having Tim Horton’s stuff for lunch.
