Minisize Me

Thursday, February 3rd, 2005

Music: Radiohead – Talk Show Host

I’ve wanted a small lil ‘mini’ digital camera for awhile now, something I could put in my pocket and have with me w/o the hassle of a ‘normal’ size camera. A few nights ago when I was out for dinner for Aaron’s birthday Jaclyn had gotten a new camera. She was snapping away, the photos on the 2 inch LCD looked great, and it looked very easy to use. I immediately began questioning her on the price, information, make, model, etc – you’d almost have thought I was seeking out a murder suspect the way I was interrogating her. The Canon Digital Elph SD200 was in my sites now, and after pricing it out later that night as well as reading all the reviews and documentation I could find, as well as looking at sample photos, I decided this was going to be an impulse buy. Ship it to me 2nd day I told Amazon, and today it appeared on my doorstep. Already charged it up, changed some of the settings to my liking, and read a good portion of the manual… not to mention I’ve taken some test shots which I’ve been please with. I’ll be toting this lil Elph around with me from now on. Should be fun as Anne will be here soon, then off to Vegas, and then of course… _the move_.

Fly Me to the Moon

Music: Count Basie/Frank Sinatra – Fly Me to the Moon

I swear I could be moving to the moon. The sad part is, if it was an emergency to move, I’d be completely SOL. When it comes to sorting and packing my motivation is really come and go. Today I got some pricing on shipping my car, which seemed fairly reasonable, copied a bundle of old CD-Roms and floppy disks (you read that right!) to a harddrive and trashed all the disks (actually, they are still ‘waiting’ to go in the garbage), sorted some paperwork, ALMOST had U2 GA tickets for Boston3 but it didn’t quite work out (did I mention I hate TicketBastard, bought a 100 pack of DVD-Rs from Amazon via my store at Interference.com for $30 after rebate w/free shipping, and… drumroll please… took a shower and got dressed for the day at 5pm…. just in time to go to dinner for Aaron’s birthday at T.G.I. Friday’s at The BLOCK at ORANGE. Oh, I also helped one of Allan’s friends with his pokey computer… ‘phone support’ was the prefered method as I was to lazy to actually want to go fix a Windows98 POS even for a couple hours of pay. Hopefully dinner will be good, and the company too.
