Buying shoes

It seems that its getting to be time again to replace my footwear, so I figured that I would ask around and see what kind of footwear you're all wearing. Probably the last 3 or 4 pairs of shoes that I've bought have been made by Saucony, but, although I still like the shoes that this company puts out they're roughly $70 - $80 a pair (on sale) and I'm currently trying to conserve money.

While I definitely don't think that $70 - $80 is an outrageous price for a pair of shoes (as you can easily spend more), I'm currently wondering if I should switch over to some footwear by another manufacturer that might be a little cheaper. Hence the question: what's on your feet, and would you reccomend the manufacturer?

A fresh batch of photos...

I picked up a batch of three rolls of film this evening at Superstore, containing the results of some of the most recent shooting of mine. This includes shots from July 30th, August 4th (the day my car insurance expired), August 5th (the evening before my CMPT 471 final exam), and the first set of photos from the canyon excursion on August 13th.

Some of the shots turned out fairly well. As one example, the light on CN 5696 looked quite interesting. I suppose that I should mention that the "Hi Eliana" sign got some use.

One thing that is kind of unusual about the photos from August 13th is that the film results beat out the digital. I ended up shooting both film in my SLR, and also dragging along the old digital camera. The annoying thing is that I simply haven't been able to find a transfer cable that fits with the camera. My sister's camera does accept the same sort of media, but unfortunately I need to await her return from Missouri to be able borrow that camera to attempt to transfer the photos.

Do you read e-books on your computer?

The wonders of modern Canada...

With the new marriage laws, its interesting to see some of what might happen. Basically, some people expressed interest in taking advantage of the new marriage laws just for the tax benefits (although they've now cancelled the wedding). See Two heterosexual men in Toronto cancel "gay" wedding.
