My 365...

QVC you are evil!  You are my kryptonite.  I clicked on a hyper link to your den of temptations and what to my wandering eyes should appear?  A Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR camera with 2 lens kit and a camera bag for under $700? 

And on EASY pay? 

How DARE you!!!

I will not be tempted.

(But easy pay is just so...easy.)

NO! has...EF-S 18-55mm lens, and a EF-75-300mm zoom lens, and you can now become obsessed with collecting cool lenses!


How about....

I have no idea what any of this means?

How about....

USB cable,
Battery pack,
Camera strap,
Camera bag,
4GB SD memory card,
EOS Digital software CD-ROM
USB 2.0 interface
HDMI output

I do know what a camera bag is!

So what!

Step away from the mouse Veronica.  I know it is the real camera you have been dreaming of.  I know you love photography and take pictures every single day of everything that moves...and some things that don't...and have been for the last 720 day plus without missing one single solitary day however...

Big whoopee, step away before it is too late!!!

No! You know Garrett will tell you it is too much camera for a mom!

Yes! The Pentax would make a great "hand me down" gift for one of the boys?







!@*&% ZOINK!@$%

Helloooooo Santa!  *wink*

(Drats...foiled once again by Easy Pay)

Surely there is a "Buyers Club" support group out there somewhere?  Anyone?  Anyone?

My photos of the day...

I blame YOU mouse!
