PUNCHING SELF IN FACE/FORCED REPLACEMENT OF HP POINT & SHOOT

Less than one week after extolling the simple virtues of my HP point-and-shoot digital camera, it disappears from my coat pocket on a 15-degree night. I didn't hear it hit the pavement. I didn't hear it fall out on the 88 bus. No one saw it on the Tufts shuttle (Ed always give me a ride to Davis if he sees me walking).

So it's gone. I tried calling the MBTA lost & found. Last night, I spent 40 minutes trying to find the same bus I was on. I eventually met a friendly driver on a different unit who offered me a free ride to a spot where I'd be more likely to see the bus I'd been on, but by that point I had turned purple and almost passed out.

SO I'M GOING BACK TO FILM.

I found this fixed-focus 35mm Samsung piece of shit in my guitar bag, and I'm gonna go buy it some 35mm stuff to burn through. Expired film would be best, but I'll just have to keep settling.
