Sorta writer, sorta photographer, sorta gamer, sorta jokester perfecting the art of saying nothing at all in as many words as possible.

I can be snarky. If you can't take it, suck it up, buttercup.

My Aboot Moi page has more detail.

Not my favourite way of describing it, but I'm a Spoonie.

 

Canon

For the ever loving fucking fuck fuckity fuck it is CANON.


can·on [kan-uhn], noun

  1. an ecclesiastical rule or law enacted by a council or other competent authority and, in the Roman Catholic Church, approved by the pope.
  2. the body of ecclesiastical law.
  3. the body of rules, principles, or standards accepted as axiomatic and universally binding in a field of study or art: the neoclassical canon.
  4. a fundamental principle or general rule: the canons of good behaviour.
  5. a standard; criterion: the canons of taste.


can·non [kan-uhn], noun

  1. a mounted gun for firing heavy projectiles; a gun, howitzer, or mortar.
  2. British Machinery, quill ( def 10 ).
  3. Armour. a cylindrical or semi-cylindrical piece of plate armour for the upper arm or forearm; a vambrace or rerebrace.
  4. Also called cannon bit, canon bit. a round bit for a horse.
  5. the part of a bit that is in the horse’s mouth.


As can be clearly seen and understood from the above, HEAD CANNON would be a significantly different thing from what you mean, and could also result in serious bodily harm (to you or your loved one to whom you are giving head). 

This PSA has been made in the interest of keeping my head from exploding.

Like a cannon.

Just ordered one of these.
We can’t really afford it, but we’ll skimp somewhere else because it’s 50 bucks right now and we can’t afford NOT to get it for that kind of price.
We’ve been looking for a camera for the boy for some time. He’s had a toy camera (actually, he’s had two) that take real digital pictures, but they are notoriously unreliable, hard on batteries, and the photos they produce are awful. He asked for a “real” camera last summer, and during the holidays, and for his birthday, but we couldn’t find one that was any good that fit our budget.
Last year, he destroyed a Nintendo DS by leaving it laying around on the floor of the car in the winter. The infiltration of salty snow-melt water basically wrecked the guts. The idea of handing over another piece of near-100-dollar electronics to him causes a code-orange level of sphincter-puckering anxiety. I want him to be able to take photos, though - it was something that my parents gave me, even if they griped about processing photos and costs (and didn’t really support photography as a career - I’d like to think my life would have been different if they had).
So, I told him it was ordered for me and I’d let him use it. He’s going to have to take super-good care of it, because it’s just for him to use sometimes and it’s really my backup camera, so he definitely can’t break it.
Shh - don’t tell.
