Not only has my reading slacked off, and so, then the book notes, but I’ve been woefully remiss at creating a true multimedia experience for all of you.
Remedy for the reading slow-down? I may call it quits on the massive piece of nonfiction I’ve been looking forward to reading for several years now, because after almost a week, I’m still only 1/4 of the way through it. I may muscle through, however, because to date, The Hobbit stands as the only book I’ve never been able to finish.
Remedy for the drab, dense text? Pulled the trigger on a camera this weekend, and snatched it from the hands of the UPS driver yesterday. I will master it before Thursday afternoon (have an event planned that I want to document) and then begin to share the photo-love.
The camera taught me a lesson in getting on with things. For months, I’ve read reviews, interrogated friends, compared prices, adjusted my expectations, and found THE ONE. About an hour after I had ordered it, I realized that I was looking at the Canon SD 790 IS, but had purchased the Canon SD 970 IS.
Too late to cancel! Had to ‘fess up to the husband! Mapped out a whole strategy – get it, order the other, return the first, keep it all on the same credit card statement so it doesn’t mess up cash flow …
Reviews for the 970 are not nearly as favorable as for the 790, but you know, as I futz around with it, and given my extremely limited skills, the 970 serves my needs quite nicely for about $100 less than the 790, so I’m sticking with it. After all that time spent planning, then worrying, I could have been finishing the damn White Mughals that currently taunts me from the bedside table!
