    wow! some of these events sound wonderful! I am so sorry I never heard of them before. I would love to join in. I am a bit scared with “Feast on the Flesh of thine Enemy” one… does it have to be an enemy or could I just use a friend? (ronald of

    I’m just going to live on lichen and dew until February.
    It’s not too late for Nude with Food November but if you’re still keen on FotFlotEFF#4, I’ve just checked and apparently a friend is OK but
    1. only if they are also the friend of your enemy and
    2. the enemy is not the enemy of your enemy but
    3. the enemy that is the enemy of your enemy is friends with your enemy
    Rumour has it that they might just sublimate it as Trobriand I Will Shame my Enemy with 15 Wild Pigs Wednesday.

    Hi Anthony,

    I can barely handle participating in ONE event a month, let alone the thousand or so you just listed there! =P

    Perhaps we should invent more days to concide with each event…rather than more events to coincide with the days…

    Not a slow-roasted coulis?
    I’m for metric weeks if you are.

    “Amuse Bouche-tucker – tasty appetisers from the Outback” : ) can I slap a (c) on that one?

    What about buggery ‘n’ bestiality Wednesday? Is my blog buggered?

    Hi mystery person. It’s a Nikon Coolpix 4500 . I’m just working the basic functions at the moment and then building up to the trickier features. The good thing about it is the almost total manual control so I can control film speed, shutter speed, and aperature manually as well as thinks like bracketing. 5 spot focus and three different light meter settings too. It’s a lot of camera and basically does everything my F100. I’ll be getting my head around it and the Japanese manual for a while.

    Don’t worry about witty, it’s very overrated as a social skill.

    Presents for thanksgiving as well?

    Hi Anthony,

    I saw the pic of that camera on Tokyo Goat’s blog a while ago. Hope you’re enjoying your new toy. Looks good and it got great reviews. I’m wondering why you got a Japanese manual for your camera though. According to the review at, the model with the green stripe is the US version.

    Hi Reid

    I wonder too but I think they sell both colours in Japan. I’d just like to know why they don’t sell the red one in the US (shorely not a commie colour ; ). I tried to get a manual but it’s just ridiculous. Can’t get the PDF without a valid serial number.

    On a happier note, I’ve discovered the play function has a mike so I can record notes for each picture. I’ve got a shocking memory so now at least I can have some decent notes (that aren’t scribbled on napkins). Nice redesign on the site BTW. One day I’ll get to spruiking things up over here.

    Hey Anthony,

    Thanks for the compliment on my site redesign. I think an all white look is clean. I chose gray for the font as I think black can sometimes be a little hard on the eyes. I’ll send you an e-mail with the English Nikon Coolpix 4500 user manual. The file is about 7.9MB.
