Here we go ... (rubs hands)

DogOfTheSouth was laid up in bed sweatin, his bones was aching too. Something nasty has been running around. I just spent the last hour trying to get the damn battery cover off my camera with no success (which also means no light meter.) This is especially depressing because I figured this problem out on a photoshoot tonight.

Anybody out there got damn strong thumbs?

On other fronts, I saw Premier Frank Hsieh yesterday at a special press conference for the foreign press. On the whole it was, as most press conferences are, unenlightening. Yet when a French journalist asked him about whether Taiwan had a reciprocal gesture in mind for the incoming pandas, the premier inexplicably started talking about France's moves to lift the arms embargo. Granted, questions were asked in English, translated to Hsieh in Chinese, then he gave his answer in Chinese, which was translated back into English, so perhaps we can give him the benefit of the doubt.
