Dollars, Taxes

Well, I filed my taxes tonight. Getting money back from the Feds & the State and, surprise surprise, even the school district (all of $2 on that one). Most of that money will be going to help pay for my roof (currently sitting on a 0% interest credit card) but I've also decided to join the 21st century and will spend some of it on a digital camera. Woohoo!

I've decided that I'm going to get myself an Olympus Camedia, but not which one yet. It needs optical zoom and USB but as for megapixels, I'll probably stick with 3 and under. Unless I find a bargain in one that's higher. Hoping to spend ~$250-300 including memory card(s).

You may ask yourself why an Olympus Camedia - but you probably don't know the answer to that. So I'll tell you instead. My folks have one of the 2 megapixel ones and I used it during the Disney trip. It's a nice camera and did what I needed (most of the time - the rest of the time it's cuz I didn't know what I was doing with it). judiang and elsaf both have slightly higher "editions" of the 2 megapixel one my folks have, and they also did a fabulous job. Thus, I'm going to stick with what I know. (The only other digital camera I ever considered was a Nikon Coolpix, but that's cuz I know how nice Nikon is, growing up in a household with a professional photographer and his Leica and Nikon collections.)

Oh, and as for the icon that I'm using for this entry - it's thanks to theta_g that I have it. He recently watched The Three Kinds of Heat and felt compelled to make me some icons. The other one was of Major Shan saying "Freeze, Mama F*cker" (but without the asterisk). As fun as that icon is, it's not Sylv (or Leo) so I won't be using it. I'll need to make a decent capture of Shan just for Thete so he can make himself one. :-) Thanks for the icons, Thete!
