First off, why the hell does the 'New post' screen auto-focus to the textarea and not the Title field?
Secondly, do i need to start wearing my backpack again?
I found myself at a social event, offbeat but social, with a dead camera battery. Were i wearing my backpack that would not have happened.
I have a co-worker from Wisconsin. Lo mas de Wisconsin. I mean, that boy reps the state like he was paid to. Anyway, his folks (who are completely adorable) are in town and his father is thinking about starting a food-wagon to vend a native Wisconsin food-stuff: cheese curds. We were presented with a variety of delicious, batter-fried curds and a comment card. It was a focus group with beer and cheese (although i had bourbon, which i had (mostly unselfishly) given the hosts previously on the Fourth of July).
Cheese curds are baby cheeses before they become anything but cheese curds. Think 'cheese stem cells'. In Wisconsin these baby cheeses are battered and fried into a delicious treat. I wanted to document this transformation from proto-cheese to tasty snack but i only got one shot off before my damned battery died. Which brings me back to my backpack.
My backpack always carried pens, pencils, erasers, matches, spare batteries, needle and thread, anti-histamines, sketchbook(s), touch-up paint, various chargers, edged weapons, lint, small wildlife and a variety of handsome pins/badges. You know, the necessities. Had i my backpack i could have documented the quaint Wisconsin folkway of cheese curding.
Am i too grown up to carry a backup into a gathering, or does a true grown-up not give a shit?
