Yay for online auctions! I can watch my parents buying things for my birthday next week...
My B-Day Present!
yeah.
Anyway, I checked out some sites talking about the camera, and the biggest complaint is the short battery life with it. 4 AAs seem to last about 40 pictures.
I think I can handle that for a camera that shoots at 1.3 megapixels, comes with a USB smartcard reader and an 8 MB card. woohoo!
(yes yes, I know what that all means and I know I'm a dork.)
Also has 37mm threaded lens, so I can get nifty thingies to put on. Zooooooms and stuff.
Ok, little obsessed.

In other news...
Thanks for the comments on what to be reading.
So I forgot a few authors in making that list. heh.
I have read Orson Scott Card, Ursela L'Guin, Poul Anderson, Ben Bova (not impressed), Fredrik Pohl, Neil Gaimen, and Kurt Vonnegut(sp?).
Thanks to absolutcalm though for a few that I hadn't heard of, looks like I'll be hitting the bookstore with some of that b-day money soon...
The curtlepine has been trying to get me to read Tad Williams, but she doesn't have the first book in this state, so it's a little difficult.

Yeah. Went to the parents this weekend to relax the curtlepine, and secondly myself. Was nice, the madre cooked us a lovely and HUGE meal (as mothers are apt to do when stricken with empty-nest syndrome...) wich tasted so marevelous... One doesn't get many fresh veggies in a college dining hall.
Time to do some real work.
blah.
Can't wait for my new toy!
mood: anxiousanxious
music: Public radio, Folky stuff. (sensing a theme lately?)

Book Suggestion!

I'm reading Pillars of The Eart by Ken Follet, and someone close to me swears by 'The Dark Elf Trilogy' by Salvatore.

Little late, but better than never!
