I just installed the last.fm scrobbler on my work laptop and had it scrobble my work iTunes.  The results are pretty darn interesting for my overall top 15.

Moon Through the Trees
Originally uploaded by tanuki_green
For Christmas, a wonderful group of people went in together on a present for me. They got me a Canon EOS Rebel T2i with lens. For all who chipped in on this, I love you dearly. Thank you. And I will thank you profusely in person as well. I promise. You've done something wonderful.

The camera in and of itself is an amazing gift. But I'm realizing that the real gift is the creative spark that came along with it. I have ideas for photos rolling around in my head. This picture is a perfect example of that.

Last night, I took Mojo out for his nightly walk, very close to my normal bed time and looked up and saw the moon being all moon-like in the sky. And then I realized I hadn't taken any pictures yesterday at all and needed to fix that. I got the tripod out and snapped a few quick* shots.

Wanting to see what I came up with, I put them on the laptop and immediately started processing. I couldn't stop myself. I found myself finishing up around 12:30am this morning. And to be honest, I don't feel any worse the wear for it.

I couldn't be any more happy with how those shots came out. And this particular shot has only put fuel on the fire of ideas for more.

Looking back at the journal I see that my last post of any content I provided was back in June. So, it seems to be just about the right time for my bi-annual LJ post (I'm hoping I get round to being a bit more on top of posting).

Life has been weird in all kinds of glorious ways. I have been to Reno for the first time in my life and discovered that I'm not a fan, and I probably wouldn't like Las Vegas very much for the reasons I didn't like Reno, but I did have an amazing time while I was there. The occasion for the visit was WorldCon, which was an experience and a half, let me tell you. I got back into sound production (all tech work, no actual engineering) and had forgotten how much I love it.

I got to go to my very first Counting Crows concert, which involved driving four hours each way, giant wind turbines, wind, lightning, blinking red lights in the darkness on the drive back reminiscent of an alien invasion, an awesome concert, introduction to new music I dearly love and some wonderful company. This particular trip is one I will treasure for a long time to come.

There were a couple of trips to San Francisco this last year as well. These are drives that I adore, both for the drive and for the destination and company when I get there. There will be more of these in the year to come. For my sanity, there has to be.

This last year has brought me a partner-in-crime who is up for just about any adventure. We've been to the fair, on a train, to a couple of cons, movies, dinners, concerts and the lot.

And of the cons, this year was also my first Steamcon and the first year for Geek Girl Con. Both were very much fun and I look forward to doing these in the future. With those two, the total for cons this last year was 5.

Christmas brought me a wonderful present that was given by many people. I thank you all. Seriously. It means a lot to me! This present (a Canon Rebel EOS T2i) has rekindled my creativity in photography. I'm finding all the things I can do now that I wasn't able to do with my old camera and thinking of all the new and creative ways I can use it and coming up with new and wonderful ideas for pictures.

I am excited and looking forward to the coming year for a GREAT MANY reasons.
