By the side of my computer desk are plastic crates full of trannies, 35mm slides in layman speak. They have been sat there for years collecting dust so while running the vacuum clearer over them in a moment of cleaning madness I had a quick lucky dip. Who the hell are these girls! I spent the rest of the day trying to recall their names and how I had found/booked them but I’m still not sure in most cases. I could spend a bit of time reading through the old paperwork to jog my memory but it would only depress me thinking back to the early days when snapping a pretty amateur model in nothing but her knickers was a rare and exciting adventure. Oh well back to more recent times and a collection of models in their knickers who may have caused by heart to miss a beat but I truly can’t remember.
I was meant to be doing a shoot today but because of traffic mayhem we decided to postpone. It would have only been my third model of the year and I was quite looking forward to it because I had come up with a couple of new ideas to try out which may have prevented me from getting bored like in my previous shoot a month ago. Oh well another day spent being busy doing nothing.
I’m still really struggling with the updates. Plenty of excuses. I’ve not been well, the weather, the football, no sleep, no models. I’m sure I could dream up a few more too. I’ve fallen back on 4 girls who provided me with more than enough usable content when visiting the Chateau de Vaughan and I’m sure it won’t be the last time they come to my rescue.
In an attempt to recover my lost home movies I’ve been dismantling the failed hard drives and swopping bits around but although some of the drives have burst into life I’ve still been unable to read any of the data from them. It’s now last resort time, restoring from the original tapes, this is going to be a lot of fun methinks. The tapes have lay dormant in a shoe box and the now unsupported camcorder hasn’t been switched on in over 5 years. Anyone willing to take bets on my chances of success.
What a shit week. After a spending hiatus of many months I decided it was time to splash out on some new computer and photographic bits and bobs. What happens? Of the seven items ordered two have gone adrift in transit and one item is DOA. Ordering stuff online is usually easy but finding the procedure for reporting a problem not so. I’m now waiting to see if and when my money is returned and then starting the ordering process all over again because the missing bits are still required.
