We finally upgraded to a new camera. I’d had mine for about four years, and it was taking a dive. Lala’s was okay, but big and bulky. So we bit the bullet and sprang for the real deal (imperative for Venice, right? Right?), the Canon Powershot SD500 Digital Elph, with 7.1 megapixels. The POWER! And it fits right in my pocket.
Wow. I just checked, and it’s smaller than my cell phone (not that that means anything, since the Treo is pretty big, but wow).
So here! Fewer cell phone photos for you! (Although you’ll still get them, the phone is always with me…..)
I freaking love technology, man. Now we’re off to the beach, where I’ll probably take one bajillionty million pictures of dogs, pictures that no one else will appreciate like I do, but I appreciate! I do! I also have a lot of errands that I just don’t want to run today….. I had a hell of an HOA meeting yesterday, in which I had to go head to head with the guy next door (he got his name as associated on the title, so we have to let him in the meetings), and I hate confrontation. Apparently I’m good at it, but it left me a sobby, weepy mess afterward. Of course, I had worked all night, and had come home to find Clara in a crate full of intestinal distress (poor baby, she’d eaten something horrible, I think it might have been a rotten lemon from the backyard), so at 6:30am on Sunday, I’m in the front yard, sloshing out and scrubbing the crate with Lysol and hot water, washing the dog under the hose. The meeting came after that (and a nap, thank god). I am in a much better mood today, but in no mood to Do Things I Have To Do.
Lala had a great idea yesterday — every time I have an HOA meeting, we get out a box of Cadbury Creme Eggs from the freezer. There are five left, and I just CAN’T have five meetings between now and Easter, can I? I think that’ll do nicely.
