The Recap Posts Part 3c:

One of the couple days I got to spend in Portland this visit, I actually got a chance to visit one of the best places in the city.  Powell’s the city of books.  And immediately before that, walked around with family around my grandparents neighborhood and saw an awesome bookstore with books laying outside all for $1 each.  While at powells, I was upstairs in the art book section.  The emptiest part of this book city.  Even some of the aisles were vacant.  And it made me sad.

Some books I wish I could’ve purchased, but I got some good ones.

Rural Oregon is pretty awesome.  Where I was at, it was pretty dry.  Objects and animals everywhere.  And then when right before I left OR, I took a picture of Leo’s (my cousins leopard gecko) butt.

Earlier this month I spent a week in Oregon and for the first few days, I was on Lake Billy Chinook with my family.  Jumped off a bridge with my siblings and cousins, saw ospreys fishing, saved a bee from drowning.  It was paradise in a desert of Oregon.

Ok last one but i keep having what I think are cool ideas… Which you guys probably think are super annoying at this point… But typing on this thing is too much fun.  But I’m done now

Just bought this Remington Rand 5 last week and this past weekend, I spent a good chunk of my Saturday making a mess with it.  The feed rollers are pretty much shot.  Dried, crusty, flat spots, uneven mess.  Just the worst.  So I hacked that crud off and am getting super crude with the rollers.  Right now it’s just gaffers tape… Trying to figure out a good rubber substitute to use… Going to try layering it with parafilm.  All the keys work and I’m going to get a new ribbon for this sucker soon.  Posts be all typed out with this thang soon.  

Looks nice enough… not the case.  The case is just going to have to go.

I made a camera lucida.  Not a proper camera just yet.  Need to make a way for it to accommodate photosensitive material.  And it needs some tinkering still.  My original was waaaaay too long.  So I’m trimming it.  It’s just mat board and a magnifying glass held together with gaffers tape.

My new key toppers!  Key caps? Key covers?
