Good News, Bad News.
First the Bad.
My camera bit the dust. To be honest for the last year I've had packing tape around the corner of it.
And lately I would push the "button" and it took forever for it to actually take the photo.
It was just a little digital point and shoot. I had it for at least 5 years and I've taken photos of everything with it and then Monday night I couldn't find it. It wasn't in my handbag and then I remembered that I had uploaded the "broken hearted cats" with it.
But it wasn't on my desk by the computer.
Then I saw it.
Laying there dead under the side table below my printer.
I would blame Mimsy, I didn't SEE her do it but I'm pretty sure she's the one that pushed it to it's death. She's always jumping up on my chair to peer into my mug and see what's inside. Or to see if I have left a dinner plate with some crumbs on top of the printer.
(Not that I'm admitting that I eating dinner while surfing.)
Yeah, pretty sure it was Mimsy that offed my camera.
Now for the Good News.
I was given an Amazon gift certificate for Christmas. I had planned on buying a nail gun with it but then I found out I would need an air compressor thingy too and how many things am I going to really nail?
AND I found several books I wanted to order...so I hadn't used it yet.
After hours of reading camera reviews and then watching some kid on YouTube talk about this particular one, I got a new camera.
It's by GE. I know! Who knew? GE makes cameras?
It's called a "bridge" camera?
I guess that's a step up from "point and shoot" but not quite the cool "everything" camera.
It has16 megapixels, where the old camera only had 5.
And an awesome ZOOM lens.
I don't really know anything about cameras but it's pretty.
And it cost less than my old one did when I bought it 5 years ago.
And even less with my gift certificate.
So, I'm supposed to get it in the mail Friday (at work, where no one can swipe it off my porch) and a couple of art books too.
Wahoo! I can't hardly wait for Friday!
Of course I always feel that way anyway.
