Well, another month has passed and it’s time to post another batch of photos for P.J.’s Monthly Photo Challenge. The theme for January 2014 is New, and I have nothing. All month. In fact, looking through the the last 31 days of photos on my phone and camera, I’m inclined to agree with my last sentence. So my interpretation of New is going to be a bit of a stretch and I have no one to blame but myself. And P.J., because the law of the Internet states that if you are the host of any kind of blog challenge, you are to blame. For everything. (Ask Nicky about this tomorrow).
1. Marketing – Just because they say it’s New, doesn’t mean it’s any better than the rest. Is it really better than the old one? Will the old detergent break my washing machine? No, I am not swayed by your marketing, marketing people! What? It’s on sale?? I’ll take 10 of them.
2. New Toys – I picked up an e-reader in January and decided on the Kobo Aura HD (because Amazon hates Canada) As a person who often has 4 books going at once, it’s super convenient to be able to carry them all in one little device. It totally changed my life. * sobs * Also, no more getting crushed when falling asleep reading huge leathery tomes. And, most importantly, no more embarrassing moments when trying to unfold my huge Atlas on crowded public transit. I’m sorry, society!
3. A delicious bowl of NEWdles – Look, I said I had nothing. This is more proof. Stop looking at me like that.
4. What does this have to do with ‘New’? – I know I took this photo with New in mind but for the life of me I can’t remember the link. Was it a new day? Was it my first time here? Was one of these strangers wearing new skates? How would I know that, and why would I care? So many questions and no answers. Not a single one.
5 – New Snow Blows – It had just snowed some fresh new snow and suddenly there was a localized white out of blowing snow. Since I couldn’t see a thing when I took this picture, I only realized afterwards that I took a picture of a girl in a blizzard taking a picture of a blizzard. To complete the concept, I wonder if anyone was also taking a picture of me taking a picture of someone taking a picture. Wow.
