I learned something “new” the other day — don’t drop your bluetooth hands-free ear-piece device on the ground *twice in a row* or it will break. Yep, I’m definitely smarter now.

I’m still plugging away at the film scanning. I counted that I have over 350 rolls of film to scan, and if I go at the same pace I’ve been going at (which is basically scanning film whenever I’m home) then it will take me about 4-5 months to get through all of them. It sounds like a long time, but it’s not so bad considering it would have cost me about $5 per roll to take my film to a lab to have them scan it for me, equalling about $1750, almost three times the amount my film scanner was. Plus, they don’t scan them at the same quality I can get from my scanner. Sooo … I think I made a good purchase :)
