I tried to get my photos developed today, but apparently Advantix (APS)
film needs a couple of days to develop. I bought a
Kodak Advantix Switchable disposable camera [kodak.com] at Mt Buller
when my digicam was recovering from death by snow. I dropped it off at my
campus bookshop this morning, and was told to check back again on
Thursday. I saw that panoramic APS film costs A$2 each to develop. I’m
being reminded again why I got a digicam. Film developing prices are
ridiculous. Oh well. I also checked the option for a
Kodak Picture CD to save myself from having to scan in those prints
manually. Four days seems like a long wait though, and on campus
developing prices are not that different from private places too.
Anyway, I also signed up for a one month membership at the campus gym
today. There was a promotion where you can get a membership at a renewal
price. The physical exams are all booked until next week though, and I
can’t use the gym until I pass the physical. They want to make sure
members don’t drop dead from a heart attack the moment they start using
the facilities or something.
This limited edition orange Crunchie is pretty good. Not only is the milk
chocolate covering orange flavored, but so is the honeycomb! Nice.
