Well Crap

Did you ever have one of those days? Everything is going fine, you have high hopes, you have a project that needs to be done so that you can get it back in the mail and sure as shooting something horrible happens. Yup, welcome to my world.

I volunteered to host a "Flat Amy" for a K-1 project. I was going to brave the cold and take Amy out to the Arch then down by the river to the Louis & Clark statue and take pictures of this adventure. There were going to be pictures of us riding on the metro train, pictures of us at work playing on the phone, pictures of the co-workers doing their thing, when the unthinkable happened.


Ya see that wee tiny little silver blop right in front of the camera? That, my friends, is a screw. That tiny little screw fell out from BEHIND the lens. I kid you not. Now, one would not think that such a tiny little thing could not have such a big impact on the camera, huh? WRONG! That tiny little screw is what holds the lens in. Without this screw my poor camera has a googley eye. The lens just springs out and hangs there dangling in the wind. I was horrified by this. I love my camera. It's old, but still we have had some great times. How dare that little screw mess my day up like this. How dare that screw cause my camera to have the crazy eye.

I ranted, raved and even almost shed a tear over this when I noticed that my e-mail alert popped up. I love e-mails, even the junk ones, so I flipped over to see if I was going to get to make my penis (which I dont have) grow or just make it hard as a rock. Or maybe it would be one of my flower catalogs that I dream from. How about weight loss? I know everyone loves buying weight loss drugs from lord knows who but that promise of a quick fix is always a lure. No, to my astonishment it was an catalog from Tiger Direct. HOT DAMN, it was a sign from heaven. It had to be. One broken camera and an ad for a new camera, oh yes, the gods were working with me and telling me to let my old friend go and to get a new, sleeker, megapixiel friend. I swear this is what they were telling me. Now, you ask me how I know for sure this is what they meant....very easy, right after the Tiger Direct catalog I got an application for Debt Reduction/Personal Loan!

Them Gods...they are always looking out for the little folks!
