Blog, sweet blog...

I feel like I've been away from home on my blog lately. One reason is a technological catastrophe -- my digital camera is broken -- I see a weird blur through the viewfinder rather than any clear idea of what I am photographing, and while I can still take pictures, they look like this --kind of like I typically feel after a particularly fun night out...



Anyway, I need to find someone locally who can look at my four-year-old SONY Cybershot and tell me if there's any hope -- or if I just need to start shopping for a new one.

Meanwhile, a funnier story about technology... I mentioned several posts ago that I finally upgraded my cable package to include DVR ability. One thing I still often forget is that I can fast-forward through commercials. So I was catching up on some DVR programs last night and I listened to the weather guy report on the impending storm, and I awoke this morning to clear skies and no accumulation. Now, normally this is because let's face it, the weather people and all of their doppler radar and fancy graphics still have no better idea than you and I about what the weather will be like. But in this case, it was because I was listening to last week's weather report.

So I really want to be able to fix this camera and not have to learn to use a new one. Or else get used to lots of images like this on my blog...

Kerri Angel!
You are welcome to borrow my "tank". It comes complete with floppy disc - hahahahaha Sorry about your camera :(

That is a funny story Kerri and I have been there and done that myself. As for your camera, what a bummer. I have a digital you can borrow too if you like. Both a Nikon D60 and a smaller Nikon digital. There is a camera repair shop in Styvesant Plaza too.
Let me know if you want to borrow mine.

Hah! I've totally done that before, too -- weather and what not. My husband is always reminding me that I could fast forward through to the show. D'oh! No wonder he wants to keep the remote...

=)

PS: Sorry about your camera, but the photos are kind of cool, too.

My oh my, I better get my eyes checked because you look rather fuzzy to me. Sorry about your camera but four years old is an eternity for now-a-days. :o) Keep inspiring and creating...

Learning how to use a new camera can be so frustrating when you have finally mastered the old one. I was told my 3 year old camera was horribly out of date when I took it in for a minor adjustment.

bummer on the camera! that would make me so sad. my nikon is my best companion these days. LOL

i've had those dvr weather forecast moments too. the best part about dvr is being able to fast-forward thru the commercials!
