I am almost done with my Christmas shopping. Well, I bought one of dad’s gifts, and Kate’s are done (once they get to my house…), which is only two people, so maybe I am not “almost done”! However, I’m closer to being finished than normal. I am not looking forward to having to ship out said gifts, especially since, as of right now, the only time I’d have to do it is on a Saturday. I guess the lines won’t be too bad if I go right when the Post Office opens.
I’m on a diet; that diet being “don’t spend money on food while at work”. Since Volks (surprise surprise!) rereleased the Yo I want sooooooooooooooo bad, I find myself having to budget for it. I want to win it, and at the same time I don’t, because Volks likes to ship via UPS which in turn likes to leave stuff sitting outside the front door. Not an issue when I was lazing around, but now I’m just so paranoid. I’m wondering if I could call them and ask to hold it or deliver some other day or something. I really don’t like the idea of a $400 doll sitting outside! Of course, I’d have to win the “privilege” to buy her, first.
OK, the other thing is, I really want a new camera. Cameras cost money. Especially the ones I like; heck, the point-and-shoots I like are around $300-400. Not to mention, I still need to buy everyone their Xmas crap. The Yo isn’t that big of an issue since I have around $200 in my doll fund (although, that was the camera fund), so there is that bright note.
I still can’t decide between Nikon and Canon. I’m leaning heavily towards Nikon, but the Canons are cheaper. 🙁 And it’s not like I could go wrong picking one over the other. I’m looking at either a D80/90 or a Rebel xsi (or whatever the hell it’s called). Or maybe I’ll look into some other Canon EOS systems. I know I want at least 10 megapixels.
Haha! I just bought this camera mag at the store and it came with a brochure for Canon DSLRs. They are trying to win me over. 😉
