I just opened two drawers in the kitchen I think for the first time ever and found dish towels.

I have read about a watch specialist in Sugarhouse that might be a good bet for the five-year services of my automatics, if the price is right. If a basic clean/lube/check-seals is under $100 then he’s my man. It’s cool that this sort of thing still exists in this day and age. Most “watch stores” and “jewelers” will just tell you that they can replace batteries, and if anything more than that needs to be done, chuck it and buy another.

Throw away nation.

Sold my XF 27mm f/2.8 on eBay today. I just never use it. The 18mm f/2.0 is about the same size physically but has a much cooler field of view that speaks to me far more, and a wider base aperture to boot. So long, 27mm. It was (very tepidly) nice knowing you.

About to turn forty.

Couldn’t be a better time for it, in the midst of an extended mid-life crisis.

Woohoo.
