I am back from my 3 week vacation in Magaluf Mallorca. Actually I have been home for 10 days now...
The reason I have not written a post for so long is because I have been very sick.
I have had lots of bad luck this year so this makes me wonder if the Devil is out to get me for some reason?
In February during my vacation in Las Palmas Gran Canaria I suffered the flu so most of that vacation was ruined. To top that off during that vacation it turned out I had bought a fake Kingston memory card for my camera and it broke and most of my pictures was ruined. I later managed to rescue a few of them and eventually just barely managed to write a 50 G's article featuring the Green Turtle GW-400 Silencer.
In June I became sick again. Dont know what sickness it was but I did have the fever.
Prior to my vacation while playing with my dogs in the back yard I slipped on wet grass and suffered some bad back injury, also during this time I had a break out of birch pollen allergy. All this prevented me from sitting down for any lenght of time and also made it hard to concentrate. So once again I was prevented from making a 50G's article (I was meant to write a article about the Brasilian FIFA DW-6900WC). I was still not fully recovered when I went for vacation. So sitting down for several hours in the bus and plane was a true torture and I only barely managed it, due to pain killers.
And during this vacation, thankfully I did not become sick, but something else really bad happened. Prior to my vacation I bought a brand new 15X Zoom Travel Zoom Compact, the Samsung WB650 with built in GPS. It cost me $400. Well It did not last long as I dropped it in a small artificial water fall while playing Mini fantasy Golf in Palmanova (Golf Fantasia). A day before this happened, in Palma city, I had stumbled across one of my Grail G's. I still have a hard time believing that I actually found it in a store in Europe. It is an expensive very rare G, and I payed $400 for it. And it was while making a shoot for a 50G's article I was planning when it happened. I had placed the watch in the water fall and after taking the shoot I slipped on wet spot I dropped the camera in the water and it was caputt, finito, dead meat in the water
Since I had already spent $400 on a watch, I did not have enough money to buy a replacement camera. So once again I have been prevented from making the 50G's article I had planned.
So which watch was it?
Well it is still a little secret since I will probably make a 50G's article about it. But I do not know when it will happen.
But wait, this is not the end of my bad luck. I did not become sick during my vacation but sure enough I became sick the very same day I returned home. And I have had a bad flu with several days of fever and pain all over my body and I have lost 8 ibs and my pants are loose!
I have also had a really bad caugh and I still do, so i can barely speak anymore and I feel very tired and heavy in my head due to very little sleep.
But I can feel now that I am getting better after 10 days or so. But my body feels very wasted by now!
So all this bad luck this year then beggs the question: Is the devil out to get me?
Well now I am finally back and I can see that lots of things have happened in the G world when I was away. I am very jealus of all GXW-56 owners. I really want one of those!
