Farewell Friend

On tuesday of this week I bid farewell to a friend that has been at the core of my life for the past 2 1/2 years.  Over the past few weeks he was showing signs of age, but I thought it was just a phase and things would get better. I went to bed monday night and all was fine. Tuesday we had plans but not until 4:00 pm. We were going to meet up with some classmates( ooVoo ). A few minutes to 4:00 pm I went into my office and my world changed from that moment forward. I found my cable modem dead. How could this be? Its was so young! I tried to revive it but my attepts we feeble at best. It was too late. I have moved on because that’s what my old modem would have wanted. He was such a strong Motorola. You will always have a place in my heart; you were always there for me on lonely nights when I couldn’t sleep. I’m sorry I never had a chance to say goodbye. Thank you for all that you did Motorola SB5120.

I’m a cheater

By the virtue of my user-name ” Saint Luis ” , I’m sure you can deduce that I am a very religious person. In the book of Matthew in the bible, chapter 5 verse 28, Jesus states that  adultery is not just committing the act but wanting to commit adultery in your heart makes your an adulterer. So it’s the condition of your heart not the act.  Now that that little theological lesson is done, I have a confession to make; I am cheating on my PC.

Now before you get all judgmental on me, I want you to know that nothing has happened yet; at least not physical. My PC has been with me from the beginning, sure we have had our ups and downs, but it has stuck by me through the years. However, lately I find myself thinking of Macs. It’s not something I was looking for… it just kind of happened. I find myself looking at pictures of Macs on the computer. ( Not  on my PC, I’m not an animal) I catch myself researching specs and trying to budget the money to buy one. I know I’m a horrible person, but it’s not all my fault. There have been many people and situations that have led me to this place in my life. I’m just a product of my environment.

You guys don’t know what its like to have professors tell you things such as: “Macs are the industry standard.” That means that when I graduate the professional world will not even let me spend time with my PC. Another wedge that the Mac people try to put in between me and my PC is the promise of fewer viruses and crashes. Can this really be true? It sounds too good to be true. Also, Mac users have mastered a look that makes you feel as if you’re one of the lowest forms of life when you pull out a PC. I read somewhere on the web that that isn’t a learned behaviour it just comes natural once you buy a Mac.

As if the assault from professors and peers wasn’t enough, Mac sends in the professionals. I can’t make it through a TV show without being bombarded by commercials telling you how cool and exclusive Macs are, and how only dumb people have PC’s. The software engineers at Mac have also come out with their new seductive harlot ” OS X Leopard”. What the hell? Why would they do this to me? My Vista can’t do that kind of stuff or look that cool, and it’s the Ultimate edition. And now, Macs have cool little laptop cases to go in. My PC is a little older and weighs a little more and can’t fit into something that small. As if the ridicule while I’m using my PC wasn’t enough, now Mac users can judge me even before I take my PC out. It’s getting to be too much.

I’m writing this because I feel torn between what my heart wants and my loyalty. How do you tell something that has been there for so long that things just aren’t working out anymore?

Pros and Cons of marrying your sister!

On weekends I work as a wedding photographer, which means that I am behind the scenes of the wedding process. I see the fears, the anger, the nervousness, and the anticipation that all of these couples have on their special day. I have seen some things so odd that it would make you wonder if the bride and groom were even friends, much less dedicating their lives to one another. This post however, isn’t about a throw down between bride and groom; its way better than that.

DISCLAIMER: The names of the parties involved have been changed to protect the innocent.

While shooting a wedding for a couple “Jake” and “Jill” I found out that Jake and Jill were brother and sister. Now, before you freak out they weren’t biological brother and sister like in Alabama ( Sorry Alabamians ), to be fair they were only step brother and sister. I bet your thinking, ” What’s the big deal “, well the big deal is that their parents got married when the bride and groom were just little kids. So besides blood these two were in all respects siblings. So, itmade me ask myslelf very important question. What are the pros and cons of marrying your sister?

PROS

  • You don’t have to split your time between two families on holidays
  • All your monogram stuff stays the same
  • You don’t really have in-laws
  • Family picture time is shortened significantly
  • You already knew you could live with your spouse

CONS

  • IT’S GROSS
  • The divorce could cause your parent’s to divorce
  • You have to explain this to your kids one day
  • Your family only pretends to understand
  • Complete strangers will blog about you

As you can see, I didn’t jump the gun and judge these people, I thought long and hard about the lifestyle choice that this couple made. In the end I just don’t get it. You know what they say ” There’s plenty of fish in the sea”, that means don’t be lazy-leave your house to find a girlfriend. A final quote from the great Luis Corkern, ” When you hear people laughing, they’re laughing at you, cause you married your sister.”
