It's ironic . . . .

So I got a new camera for Christmas! It looks just like this one, which I have been coveting since I spotted it at a softball tournament in July.

tangent: I'm not too controlling vis-a-vis my Christmas wish list, am I? I didn't actually buy it for myself and tell the husband what he bought me. I just took a picture of the item I wanted, and emailed it to him, and then found it at BestBuy-dot-com, and bookmarked it in a folder called "Stuff Liz Wants for Christmas." Too pushy?

This is a swell camera, people. It can do all sorts of zoomy, action photograph-ish things that my trusty iPhone just isn't made to handle. The oldest girl was getting a little tired of smacking a softball, and then pausing to pose for my iPhone before she could run the bases.

Well, so obviously it's hilarious, in a tragic, sucking-the-life-out-of-me sort of way, that I can't figure out how to get my pictures from the camera to the computer.

Stay tuned . . . .


  1. Oh no!

    And I don't think you're pushy at all. After my tirade last Christmas Mr. Sister decided that maybe it's a good idea to at least take a peek at my list!

    Good to see you again! I hope you get that camera figured out!

  2. Ah ha! There you are! I was just thinking about you and realized that I haven't been here in a while (and we're missing your mad Haiku skills too, lady)

    Congrats on the new camera - what a pleasure to have a good one, yes?? I'm sure you'll get that all figured out. Don't be a man - look at the manual... ;)

  3. I emailed Dave a link to a necklace I wanted with the tagline "If you don't buy this for me, I'm buying it for myself." So, you know. I'm not very subtle either.

  4. Yeah, that's the thing with those electronics, they're no good at telepathy and beaming Bossy places.

  5. Congrats on the new gadget. Cameras and videocams and Kindels and Kitchen Aids make my heart flutter! Happy New to catch up. Holly

  6. Well, I must be in the same "pushy" group. I do the same thing. E-mail my husband even though he is sitting by me. I send him links with the best price too. The catalog was just just underrated for my husband. I dog earred the page, and I got something from the other page. Thank God and all the geeks of the world (including my husband) for the internet, and all the easy ways to SHOW him what I want.
