Does it shock and surprise you that I accomplished nothing this weekend?
I do have to get on the ball really soon. My dad's b-day is coming up and then immediately afterward is my trip to my parents' house and have I even let anyone know? Well, yeah, hi, I know you know...but except for Richard, I'm thinkin' most of the folks who read here don't live in LA anymore/ever did.
And I lie. There is one thing that has been on my list for 3 years now that I can finally cross off...for at least another 7 years...that is, if it lasts that long. I made a side trip on Saturday on the way to the grocery store... I finally upgraded my sony cybershot to the W-170. To give you a hint as to how long I've been plotting, planning, and saving? The W-55 was the one I had had my eyes on...and it had cost almost as much back in the day. 'Member, I own the cybershot, um 1.
I have to say it's a very satisfying feeling to spend money that I saved and set aside for. It really was no big thing to fork over cash I hadn't counted as part of anything but "camera money" for so long. Such a different feeling than BAM! Here's an expense you had no idea was coming and YOU OWE BIG, pay up, NOW. (Yeah, thinking about the accident bills my insurance will no doubt deny coverage on...just because...but then again...I am an odd duck and have emergency doctor bill money set aside as well.)
Where was I? Right! Pretty pictures! From my camera!
I mean, I really really really appreciate Andy letting me steal his camera so as to avoid fighting with my fisher price cybershot (1.3 megapixels, baybee), but I really really really will need my own to capture the sights and sounds of my niece and nephew.
Yeah, we had a whole 2 hours of sun yesterday...Andy took advantage and flew his kite. I took advantage and stood out on the hill and played with my camera.
It takes movies...with SOUND...but I don't know how to post those just yet...and they sound like "WHOOOSH, WHOOOSH, WHOOOSH" from the wind blowing anyway...not exactly exciting.
