Say cheese

My birthday ended up being both really awesome, and totally sucky. Bad news first: I ended up with a pretty wicked toothache, so I ended my day with a hydrocodone and bed. Wait, I guess that finished the day off pretty well actually. The toothache bit sucked though, pretty much rendering me grouchy and pissy by the time the day wore down.

Now the good news: After a happy dinner at Chic-fil-A, and some mild grouchiness by me, I came home to something completely undeserved and awesome. My hubby totally rocked in the gift department, going way above and beyond what he should have. Meet my new friend:

Not what, 2 days ago I posted about learning photography and my crappy point and shoot and my dreaming of an unaffordable new camera? And then, bam, as a consolation prize for being older than him, N.C. gives me this little guy. See what whining on the internet will get you?

Seriously though–N.C. knows that I’ve been slowly getting more and more into photography, and more and more frustrated with our little camera. He worked with a photographer friend of ours to pick out a “next step” camera that would let me learn, give me more options, and give me a good basic grounding, but wasn’t quite as crazy expensive, expansive, or overwhelming as the DSLR’s I’ve been coveting. And honestly, I don’t know enough about the medium to justify a DSLR. Hell, I think this camera is going to be challenging enough to learn and more expensive than I think my birthday (or our finances) warrants.

But I’m sure as hell not giving it back.

Glad you like it. Let’s go shooting sometime!

Ooh, yes please-maybe then you can show me how it works!

Nice haul! You’re going to love it–having a good camera really makes a huge difference.
