Retail Therapy

I went a little crazy yesterday and gave into a yearning of mine that has been festering for a few years.

I grabbed my bank card, entered the information, closed my eyes and committed to the purchase of a shiny new gadget!

Canon Digital Rebel XSi 12MP Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens

Isn't she pretty?!

I shall call her: Chanda--for she is my passion.

Next purchase?

Aafrica: Are the pics you put on your blog from your rebel film camera? Cuz those rock. Seriously.

Jadey: I've been all over Dragonlady's (Beth) email box rambling about my new camera and geeking over photography details. LOL! I'm such a geek :P

Catwoman: Isn't she? *strokes her image on Amazon* :)

Dragonlady: I'm so excited but its going to be the first week of October before I get to see her :( Stupid Amazon with their delayed shipping...*sniff sniff--sulk*

Mrs X: I just got the "its been shipped" notice from Amazon!! *girl squeal!!E*

Slick: A patch you say? Does it have Hello Kitty on it and come in a variety of colors? Hmm??

Peaceful said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one that babbles at her-- I called her on the phone (no answer) about the squirrel!

Peaceful said...

I got my cartilage pierced today!!!
I hope it isn't killing me too much tomorrow- It doesn't hurt at all now..just waiting for the shoe to drop!

Haphazardkat said...

Jadey: omg--you did?? Ear or nose?? or????

Haphazardkat said...

Cindy: We got Tessa's thank you card :) ---your welcome! and Thank YOU! :D Miniwarrior wants Tessa to know he caught another preying mantis. Its green and he first named it Dixie, but has since starting referring to her as Jessica the 2nd...(his stepmom was most pleased to see another bug come to the house when he went back to his Dads house...hehehe)

Jadey: ooo eeeeeeeeeears! Now you can wear pretties! :D

Bob-a-roo: She comes in the mail on Wednesday. I got one of her lenses yesterday and am raring to try her out :D
