i realize that my posts have been super short and not very interesting lately. i'm sorry - i've been so farking busy these days, and i have so much to share! ugh, THERE'S NEVER ENOUGH TIME! I NEED MORE TIME!
and yesterday was my 1,100th post - i didn't even get to crow about it because i didn't realize it until it was too late.
anyway, we actually got around to picking out and decorating a christmas tree. it's really nice - the big window in our living room that faces the street is perfect for it. oh man, how i love this house.
the bean got a little silly as usual, taking the concept of "stockings" quite literally.
my beautiful but grumpy teen begrudgingly did her duty, hanging ornaments and then topping the tree with the star - but refused to look at the camera no matter how nicely i asked.
her sister was more than cheerful enough for all of us, happily examining each ornament before finding a spot for it on the tree.
so, wanna take a guess as to which of these might be mine (hint: it's NOT the JoBros one, thankyouverymuch)?
and an old friend came out to play.
but these were among the last of the photos i got to take with my "good" camera - because i managed to destroy my lens somehow. first, it wouldn't adjust for zooming in/out anymore. like, it was stuck. and then when i took it off, there was a loose piece rattling around in there. i'm thinking that isn't a very good thing.
and look at the front of it! it looks like part of it melted off or something. also not a good sign.
but the hub called me out to the garage (or, more appropriately, his man-cave), where he pointed to a box on the worktable. "i won that at work, and i meant to take it back and get the cash for it, but i waited too long and now they won't accept it. you want it?"
it takes digital video and still pictures - not the same as my good camera, but it sure did come in, uh, handy. hardy har har.
santa, please bring me a new lens. preferably the 35mm f/1.8 lens i've been salivating over for months.
