You Knew it Was Coming

You Knew it Was Coming

Eva gets her 1st real camera. No, not the one in the photo but one that Allison won at IZEAFest last year. We decided to give that to Eva because she always wants to use our cameras. This way she can get her own camera lens covered in thumbprints.

Hey Buddy Gimmie that Camera

I came home from work today and Allison, Eva and Uncle Mike were sitting on the lawn. The were waiting to see the girls in the “pretty dresses”. That is because we live across from the church and see weddings all the time. While we were there I decided to take some photos of the tiger lilies and Eva insisted that she use my camera. So I let her use it for a little while. She took a number of photos of my feet.

When we went inside we decided to give Eva the camera that Allison won at IZEAFest 2008. Allison already had a Canon 600is.

We’ll let Eva take the camera with her to my company picnic on Sunday. I’ll post what she comes up with.

No, I haven’t gone crazy spending some stimulus package. Am I the only one sick of seeing those scam ads on Facebook? No, I watched OfficeDepot as the price fell on the Wacom Bamboo Tablet and the 4 port USB hub. The Samsung camera was a giveaway from a generous sponsor at IZEAFest 2008. And generous Swag is reason #9 for going to IZEAFest 2009. The 1 TB FreeAgent XTreme external hard drive from Seagate. I won that from a contest on The Dirty Shirt. Today I finally put these items to use.

I hooked up the hard drive and set it to backup the video and photo folders of our other external hard drive. I also made sure that that particular drive was up to date with my travel external hard drive. And if that is not anal enough I have another external hard drive of just Eva photos. The 1 TB FreeAgent XTreme will go into our fireproof lockbox. I will also find another safe place for the Eva hard drive and do my backups once each month. So now I have to set up a reminder message to myself for once a month backups.

Speaking of getting things done, today I finally picked up my glasses, the ones that were $200 more than the Zenni Optical ones that I am wearing right now. The company called me wondering why I hadn’t picked up the glasses in 4 months. Oops.

So I grabbed them, then stopped over at my Gym to cancel my membership. Gyms are such scams. I know that I paid 1st and last months fees but they said I have to bring my original paperwork back to confirm that. Really, they didn’t have that on file somewhere? I find that hard to beleive so tomorrow I bring them my paperwork.

Oh and I also got my car inspected. My plan to have it inspected at least one day into the new month after the last one expired is working. I figure if I do it for 12 months I get one year free. That is probably not what is happening but I like to think it is.

And I love On Demand by Comcast because they had Wolverine and the X-Men was on Nickelodeon for free. I also found Marvel on Twitter. I love that they are using Twitter. I’m going to find some of the other media sources that I love as well. Hey great, news IDW publishing is on twitter too! They are the people who do the Angel, Transformers and G.I. Joe comic books.
