MOTHER LODE

I just realized my access to all dis:


What's his is mine, right? I reasoned that if he's not going to use it, I may as well. I would love to improve the quality of pictures on this blog. Sorry, cameraphone.

The only thing is, how do I lug something like this around? I feel like I'd need a press pass to justify carrying this thing. How do other people chronicle their daily life with whatever they use that isn't a cameraphone or a tiny little spy camera? Is their camera this ginormous? Is this impractical for daily use?

Also, Neil said I could use it since it spends 99.99% of its life on the closet shelf, BUT I am notoriously clumsy, and if I killed it, I may find myself not too far behind.

How do I ensure its safety?

Perhaps I should stick with the cameraphone or the tiny little spy camera? This treasure chest of camera goodies is so tempting though! I just picked it up and put the strap around my neck for safety, and tried to turn it on and take a picture. That took about 5 min. to figure out. Also, it said "No card present." I think it could be more complicated than I want to deal with, but its promises of pretty pictures are hard to ignore.

That Forces Combined picture over there on the right seems to fit every post. Look at that skeptical look Neil's giving me! I promise I'll be careful with it, ok?!

Aww megymoomers! It's great to hear from you and catch up via your blog. Congrats on your marriage!! How exciting. He looks like a great guy and if he's related to Chas he must be pretty cool. I'm so happy for you. I will definitely keep up to date w/ what's going on with you. By the way your hair is very cool- the hawaii picture is the only familiar Meg to me :-) Awww I miss being your roomie in the quiet house!!

well hello and nice to meet you. i seriously love to meet those who read my blog.
that camera looks amazing- ebay has the best deals for memory cards.

so, i went to mexico lindo once, my bro-in-law talked it up so much, and when i got my carne ascada it was all fat and not good....but every one else was happy, so maybe i need to go give it another chance.

so when were you out @byuh? we used to live in va- but just moved back to hawaii in september, couldn't hack the winters!
anyways, nice to meet you!

Melinda and Tara -- I tried the camera out on Sat. and I'm already attached, sorry :)

Cassie!! So funny to hear my old nickname again :D Thanks for the congrats. Neil is an awesome guy, and yeah, he's very cool and fun. Thanks for the compliments on my hair -- it's a lot different than in HI, huh? Let's just buy the QH one day -- you and Quinn can have one side and we'll have the other.

Ashley -- Nice to meet you, too :) Yes, give Mexico Lindo another shot. I was at BYUH in '04-'05. Wow, that's a long time ago now! My family, including my cousin('s wife) who I think you know, lives out there -- the Robertsons. I do love VA, but HI is the dream.
