Rainy walk with Canada geese

A list:
1) The camera situation has been resolved. Target exchanged the problem camera with no questions asked. It was a very painless episode, and the Customer Service kid (he looked 12) was awesome (i.e., did his job competently and happily). How rare is that?!

2) I love buying stuff and having it ring up even less than the posted sale price. I bought handfuls of socks at JC Penney’s this afternoon and got quite a deal. Good socks at a great price make me happy. Holey socks have been weeded out and discarded (which was long overdue).

3) Jon Stewart performed at the college last night. For an hour and a half. For free. I haven’t laughed that hard in YEARS. Oooo…how good that felt (despite running mascara and laughing induced flop sweat).

4) A naggy migraine is finally fading and nothing feels better than that.


We interrupt this project

Irritating camera issues have sidelined my blogging project. The camera’s only a spit over a month old and one of the settings has quit working (the ISO low light mode that’s the specific reason I bought it…naturally). Nothing irritates me more than new stuff failing. It’s under warranty, and I also have an extended warranty via Target. When I spoke to them this evening they said that I can return it, so I’ll stop there on my way to work in the morning, and hope that I can take care of it then. I’ve loved my little pink SONY DSC-W120 so far, but this rattles my faith in the product.

Blogging Project 365 to be continued. And I was on a roll, too.

Now we’re thankful for…

POWER. Just as I was gearing up to roast a small turkey breast, mix up some cookie dough, finish making my Christmas cards, and iron a few outfits for the upcoming week the transformer across the street blew. (Yet again.) Darkness is boring and while candles and flashlights help you get around without slamming into things, they don’t really provide useful light. I dozed for a while, then when we heard it would be yet another hour, we browsed loitered at the local Rite-Aid, then shared a hot chocolate at Dunkin Donuts. At 8:33 pm, light, heat, and power were restored. Amen to that.    

But don’t let me kid you…tomorrow we will resume taking electricity for granted.
