I got a new toy!!!

(Sorry Mamalee and Tuesday, it's not the rabbit! LOL!)

I got me a brand spankin' new digital camera!
So you're all going to be flooded with pictures whether you like it or not, because this shiny new toy of mine is going to be over used throughout the summer to catch up with all the stuff I been missing because of my stupid camera phone.
Daddy knows I've been wanting a digital for some time now, and I think he might have felt bad when I told him I was probably the LAST human on earth to not have a digital...so last night (he felt better when I got home from work, yay!) he looks at me and said "You want to go camera shopping?" My eyes must have glazed over, he laughed at me. Everytime we go into a store with digitals I go and lust after them, testing them out, touching them, getting a feel for them. And I always have to put them back down, wipe my drool and walk away because the people start looking at me funny...
I couldn't have packed Little Man's diaper bag any faster.
Into the store we walked, with reinforcements-my Friend, her husband and demon child, and one of Daddy's friends who is an expert at these types of purchases. .P. works building computers and such things so he can get me the scoop on what these greedy salespeople won't tell me. Yes, it became a family affair. You can't make important purchases like this without back-up...
When I finally got MY CAMERA into my hands I knew it was the one. 7.1 megapixels, 10 second video with audio (more with an upgraded memory card) and all this other stuff that is really chinese to me, but .P. tells me are good things. (Hey, if it can take a nice picture, I'm good!) So we look at the box and the paper that tells us everything that comes with the camera and we are satisfied that it is now MY CAMERA!

Of course you know there is a bad side to all of this...
Isn't there always???


The memory card didn't come with the camera.

We had gone to the store at 8:30, just before they closed, so by the time we got home and opened the box (which very clearly says the memory card is INSIDE) and didn't find a memory card, it was too late to go back. So another trip to Best Crooks is in order for when we get out of work today. So I couldn't play with my new toy too much last night, as the camera only holds 3, yes, THREE photos when there is no memory card.

I don't care, really, I know the memory card is a cheap-o that will only hold like fifty photos, but still don't sell me a camera that is SUPPOSED TO INCLUDE IT, and doesn't. I know I was going to buy a new memory card, but I didn't want to have to do it NOW. I wanted to get to know my camers first, buy it dinner, take it for a romantic walk in the park, really get to know it...

Whatever. New toy=happiness in the Stuck household.

I am actually the last person on the planet not to have a digital camera. And frankly, no one wants me anywhere NEAR a camera. I kid you not. No one lets me wield a camera at family things because I lop heads off every single time.

But..yes..post some pics. I would love to see them.

Glad you got your new toy. I love my digital camera...my only problem is I hate downloading the pictures. So I tend to let them sit on the memory card forever. Kind of like the the old rolls of not developed film that used to sit around my house. Are you sensing a problem?

7.1 megapixels? Damn those things are getting bigger and better every day, aren't they?

Enjoy your new toy!! But I still think you should treat yourself to the rabbit too!
