Flickr, Tulips, Telephone surveys

If I didn't waste time on Flickr, I couldn't post properly here. Instead, I'll just have to deal with little snippets.

Flickr

You know you've spent too long on Flickr when you you're at a party in your dreams and bump into one of your Flickr contacts from the other side of the world. I sent her FlickrMail about it - fortunately she didn't think it was creepy (I didn't promise I wasn't stalking her in my dreams). :-)

Tulips

My new lens, with its wider apperture, takes sharp photos with the background blurred out nicely. But now it seems that some attention to what is in the background woud be a good idea: photos from the nursery on Sunday look good at first glance, but they have distracting things in the background (a nursery gets a bit busy/cluttered). Perhaps a visit to the Tulip Festival is in order this year (14/Sep - 11/Oct).

Telephone survey

Last week I spent six minutes on a phone call answering a survey about the customer service experience I had when calling American Express. The call, which I initially didn't remember making becaue it was so short, was simply to activate a new card. On a scale of 1 to 5, I would rate American Express as having good customer service, but a lousy approach to collecting customer feedback. They should advise their research company of the type of call and tailor the questions accordingly.
