Once upon a time, I defended a Ph.D. And at that time, some wicked cool awesome people gave me some money to buy myself a digital camera in celebration of said defence. Well, I've finally gotten off my butt, done some research and figured out which digicam I wanted. And I bought it on the internets, which was actually cheaper than buying it in a nonline store. Isn't it beautiful?

And here is the first photo that I took with my new camera*:


Note: I'm still waiting on the high speed memory card that I ordered to go with the camera, so there is a bit of a delay between the time I press the button and the time at which the camera actually takes the picture. Just enough time that one's roommate might lift her cup of tea up in front of her face, for example.

In other news, I've surpassed the 10,000 hit mark on my blog! Now, I know that some of you hit the 10,000 marks AGES ago. Some get 10,000 hits a day. But I'm still happy with my 10,000+ hits and I thought I'd give a shoutout to the lurkers who read my blog but never comment** and to the randoms who stumble onto this blog accidentally... those people who I only know come around here thanks to my trusty StatCounter. Like the person from Nice, France who was googling for "sarah mautalen"... I'm sorry you wasted 24 seconds on my blog, I don't know who Sarah Mautalen is. To the chap from merry old England who googled "Oilers gong show" - I couldn't agree more***. And to the person from Nanaimo, BC who was googling "picutres of Leanne Domi," - yes, she does, in fact, look like Belinda Stronach's twin... glad I could be of some assistance in your search. To the individual in Switzerland who googled "shoes destroy" - I just don't even know what to say to you! And to the person from Surrey, BC who wants to know if Taylor Pyatt is married.... he is. He's married to me and I am having his babies - so back off!

And, finally, I have been remiss!! It is now October 24th and I haven't yet posted a birthday wish to Therese! And her birthday was October 22nd!! I suck!!! Fortunately, she was off galvanting in England, so hopefully did not notice my remiss-ness. So now, I offer you 30 birthday wishes:

Happy Birthday, Therese!

Hope you had a great day, EZ-T!



*The popping of my camera's cherry, if you will.

**You should comment, dammit! All the cool kids are doing it!

***Unless you had googled "Calgary Flames gong show"... then I could agree more!

"Popping of my cameras cherry" will never jump the shark.

Seriously.

Ah, technology.

Someone just called me twice from the same restricted number.

Curious, no?

I was unaware that a high-speed memory card could be purchased - now I have to get one. (Although there was a very interesting picture from Cancun that resulted from the delay . . .).

Oh, did I laugh.
