not so much in this shot, but i've found that i have trouble sometimes getting my lens to focus on what i want it to focus on. sometimes, when i want the front to be in focus and the back blurry, it ends up with the middle focused, and the forefront and back of the shot blurry. it's really annoying, and upsetting when i get back home and upload the photos onto my computer. dad, what am i doing wrong?


going on lately:

+went to emmy's spaghetti shack and the seward st. slides with cynthia (though looking for the slides might have been more fun than actually riding them). i'm not going to link to it, but the slides have their own yelp page with 149 reviews. wtf?

+almost done with my big project (kind of). it's due 10/19, but i pretty much have to be done with it by 10/1...i'm feeling pretty good about it, but not good enough to blab about it on the internet. if anything comes of it, i will definitely celebrate here.

+crazy novella's brought one of her piggies to the restaurant for us to butcher with her. today, we made prosciutto, pancetta, soaked the heads for soppressata, and cleaned the loins and tenders for her to take home. tomorrow we'll show her how to make arista, boil the heads, and clean the shoulders for salami. i think she plans to make bacon, pate, and a bunch of other stuff with the other pig. she's a maniac, and i see a LOT of pork in her future. yikes. i'll try to remember my camera for tomorrow so we can take some photos of the heads.
