Updates Schmupdates

I feel the need to post something, since I've been so quiet lately. Here goes.

The new Nikon: Nope, I haven't used it yet, but I do finally have a memory card that appears to actually work. What a novelty. I have big plans to use the camera this coming weekend during my BIL's surgery recovery and MIL's visit.

Latisse: Not worth the price tag. While my eyelashes are noticeably longer after 2 months of usage, I think they are really only noticeably longer to me. I'm sure they would be fabulous after 4 months of usage, but I read somewhere that you only notice the lengthening effects as long as you use the stuff. Not worth it. As soon as I finish up my current bottle, I won't be continuing my usage. Maybe I'll stock up again when I'm a billionaire.

Pilates Reformer: Who knew I'd find some sort of physical activity that I actually like. Too bad it costs a fortune to keep it up regularly. Sadly, my frivolous and spontaneous online shopping has taken a hit.

NutraSystem (or, NS): Still blows. I'm discovering that this is not a good diet for me because I hate the food so much. I did much better on South Beach the first time I did it, a couple years ago. So essentially, I'm still a chubster.

Shopping: If any of you would like invitations to my fave "invite-only" online shopping sites, Gilt, Rue La La or Ideeli, let me know. Fun times.

That's all. I suck.

Epic FAIL

I bought the Nikon D40 about a month ago, after wanting it and then deciding I didn't want it and then wanting it again over the course of several months.

Even though Amazon had some good packages, I didn't want the camera bag that came in the packages, so I decided to just buy the Nikon D40 6.1MP Digital SLR Camera Kit with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor Lens, memory card and camera bag separately.

My camera and camera bag came on the same day.

My memory card never arrived.

So sat my camera for several weeks, collecting dust.

I've been insanely busy at work and finally a few days ago sat down and emailed the company that I bought the memory card from. They blamed the post office for not delivering it, however, they had never sent me an email saying it had shipped or given me any sort of tracking number.

Giving up on them, Mr. FGD dragged me to Best Buy over the weekend to buy a memory card.

That night, we both tried using the memory card in the camera, and we ended up with error messages and some sort of faulty memory card. Even our photographer friend says it sounds like the memory card is fucked up.

Goddammit.

How long am I going to have an expensive camera that I can't use?

Fuck me, dudes.

I can't help it

I just love a funny dog video. Especially a sleepwalking dog.

Enjoy! (it's only 23 seconds)
