tube camera

Simple foods for lunch today: rice, peas, carrots, roasted mushrooms, and the frilliest lettuce ever. (Is frilliest even a word? 🙃) We wanted a quick meal so this was perfect. The peas and carrots are cooked from frozen, I just boiled them for ~10 mins. 👌 I also drizzled on some soy sauce after this photo just because the Korean part of me is craving that umami. 😜
.
We are considering doing a day (or two) trip to Pula or Plitvice Lakes National Park before we move to Belgrade. Have you visited either of them? If you have, let me know what you think!
.
I’ve been fairly productive today with lots of photo editing, planning, and organising. 😵 I also scored a new extension tube for my camera so I’ll be practising macro shots real soon. 😉
.
I hope you’re having a good Tuesday!

Endometriosis: My life full of pain - BBC News
One in 10 women has it, but getting help for endometriosis is a long and difficult journey for most.

One in 10 women has it yet, in the UK, it takes on average seven years to get it correctly diagnosed by a doctor - something experts want to change.

With endometriosis, tissue that behaves like womb lining is found in other bits of the body, causing nasty symptoms.

Endometriosis facts

  • You can’t “catch” endometriosis and nothing you did made you get it
  • Women and girls of childbearing age and of any ethnicity can have it
  • It’s a long-term condition that can be difficult to diagnose at first
  • Common symptoms include pelvic pain, period pain, tiredness and pain during and after sex
  • Your GP may not be able to see any signs that you have endometriosis and some tests may not show up the problem
  • You may need a procedure called a laparoscopy (where a surgeon passes a thin tube with a camera into your body through a small cut in your skin) to confirm the diagnosis
  • Medication (including the contraceptive pill) is available that can help control the pain and symptoms
  • Some women have surgery to get rid of some of the tissue or a hysterectomy to remove the womb
  • Women with endometriosis can still try for a baby - it’s estimated up to 70% of women with mild or moderate endometriosis will be able to get pregnant without fertility treatment

“Well for those of you who are concerned with my present physical and mental state. I am not a junkie. I am not gay, although I wish I were, just to piss off homophobes. Ive had a rather unconclusive and uncomfortable stomach condition for the past 3 years which by the way is not related to stress which also means it is not an ulcer. Because there is no pattern to the burning, nauseaus pain in my upper abdominal cavity, I never know when it will happen, I can be at home in the most relaxed atmosphere sipping natural spring water, no stress, no fuss and then WHAM! like a shotgun: stomach time. Then I can play 100 live performances in a row, guzzle boric acid & do a zillion television interviews and not even a burp. This has left doctors with no ideas except the usual: here Kurt, try another peptic ulcer pill and lets jam this fibre optic tube with a video camera in it down your throat for the 3rd time and see whats going on in there. Again. Yep your in pain alright. Your stomach is extremely inflamed and red. Try eating ice cream from now on. Please lord, f—k hit records, just let me have my very own unexplainable rare stomach disease named after me. And the title of our next double album, “Cobain’s disease.”

So after protein drinks, becoming a vegetarian, exercise, stopping smoking, and doctor after doctor I decided to relieve my pain with small doses of heroine for a walloping 3 whole weeks. It served as a band-aid for a while but then the pain came back so I quit. It was a stupid thing to do and Ill never do it again and I feel real sorry for anyone who thinks they can use heroine as a medicine because um, duh, it don’t work. Drug withdrawal is everything you’ve ever heard. You puke, you falail around, you sweat, you s—t your bed just like that movie “Christiane F.” It’s evil. Leave it alone.

I am the product of 7 months of screaming at the top of my lungs almost every night 7 months of jumping around like a retarded rheesus monkey 7 months of an-swering the same questions over and over … I’m really bored with everyones concerned advice like: “man you have a really good thing going. Your band is great. You write great songs, but hey man you should get your personal s—t together. Don’t freak out, and get healthy.” Gee I wish it was as easy as that but, honestly I didn’t want all this attention but Im not freaked out which is something a lot of people would like to see. Its an entertaining thought to watch a rock figure whos public domain mentally self destruct. But I’m sorry friends Ill have to decline. Maybe Crispin Glover should join our band.

Well Ive spewed enough, probably too much but oh well, for every one opinionated, pissy, self appointed rock judge cermudgeon there’s a thousand kids … 

Hope I die before I turn into Pete Townshend.”

Heyy! So earlier i asked whether or not you took prompts and now I'm on my laptop and can clearly see that it is stated in your "Frequently Asked" so sorry about that, but like I was wondering if you could do a prompt with Sterek where one of them is a youtuber and they do the Chapstick Challenge or Tin Can Challenge? I just feel like that'd be really cute and funny.

Derek has exactly one video posted on his channel, and it’s from when he went and visited Cora in South America that one time when she was studying abroad, and they hurriedly patched together a few clips of their time in Arequipa and from their hike in the Cañon del Colca, photos of condors and Cora grinning wildly at the camera. The videos are Cora’s thing, not Derek’s, but she had forgotten her YouTube password and really wanted to show Laura and everyone at home, so Derek had obligingly let her upload it to his.

As it is, Cora’s never let him take it down, saying that it adds “more” to her own channel, and now her viewers can see who her dorky brother is. 

Above the noise of the shower running Derek can hear Stiles talking in the next room, laughing about how Derek’s hasn’t uploaded anything in two years, and Derek grins, thinking about how their date had been on Friday, and here it is, Sunday, and Derek is still in Stiles’ apartment, taking a shower in Stiles’ bathroom.

It’s been an amazing date, to say the least. What time they haven’t spent in bed has been lost in conversation and laughter, and Derek can’t remember when he’s had more fun. As Derek shuts off the water, he can hear Stiles recording a new video of his, talking to his viewers about his feelings on dinosaur erotica. Apparently there’s a popular selling book series. 

Derek grabs one of Stiles’ fluffy towels, drying himself off, and wraps it around his waist, stepping out of the bathroom.

He freezes when he spots where Stiles is filming, sitting at his desk, facing his computer, but Derek is pretty sure he’s in the camera line of vision. He should move, right? Oh gosh, did Stiles say this is a livestream? He’s on camera right now, wearing only a towel, he should definitely leave—

How Did The Emmys Get Their Name?

The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences originally called their awards the “Immys” – at the time, immy was common slang for “image-orthicon camera tube.” But the statue, a graceful, winged woman holding an atom, just looked too much like, well, a woman! Everyone started calling it “Emmy” even before the first ceremony. And the name stuck.
