Do you know the worst thing about blogging is for me? Pictures. I do not have any pictures at all and I’m not just talking about vain-pot pictures of myself in the most ridiculous facial poses ever. No. I’m talking good ol fashioned “what-happened-there-and-then” photos. They make really good things to write about too.
For instance, it hailed today…twice…while I was awake.
Generally, a typical blogger who doesn’t often see things like that before would take a snapshot of the icy pebbles that fell down from the sky and caused all of us to rush out to see something we dont get everyday while still being in our pajamas in the cold so that he or she can post the amazing picture of it on the net and have people commenting about frozen rain.
Unfortunately I can’t do that.
Why? Because for starters, I do not have a camera. That’s right. I’m in a foreign country with lots of foriegn things around me and for more than one year, I haven’t actually snapped one of my own in places like this. Needless to say, that is really really sad.
Then again, what about the other pictures about my stay here. The countless photo’s during the blogathon, the embarrassing photo’s of my snowboarding trip, the ridiculous photo’s of me taking comparative pictures of whether of not I should do things one way or another. Simple…they’re still not from me. They are the result of me pinching off a camera or pictures that contain me in it from other people. Again…needless to say, that is really really sad…not to mention a tad bit troublesome.
So where is this post going? I don’t know. As far as I know in the time that it would have took to snap a picture of the hail, shrink it in photoshop, upload it to the server and add a few classy words here and there, I have given a reason WHY there is no photo and the result me not having a camera…not to mention a few links here and there to the posts which give the best example which I would imagine you would not be clicking on it because it would cause you to contract a bad case of yawnanitis.
So coming back to the point. It hailed…but I don’t have pictures of it. It was cool…and cold. But you have to take my word for it. After all…I’m a blogger and whatever I say must have happened anyway especially if I’m in a foriegn country.
