Not a keeper.

Journal, Lauren

The camera, not Lloyd.

A new backdrop for our photos!

On Sundays I go window-shopping while Lloyd is at choir, and today I looked at cameras. I really want something that (a) fits in my pocket, (b) has the correct-sized memory stick that will fit in my laptop, and (3) charges by plugging a cable into the camera, not by removing the battery. I went to Circuit City, Best Buy, and Target for the initial look and figured that Lloyd would come along after choir for more intense scrutiny.

Well, we had an unexpectedly delightful dinner invitation to dine with Curt and the Pesters, so I said, “Let’s just go quickly to Target and buy that FujiFilm one that’s on sale. If I don’t like it we can return it.” So, the camera was purchased, inspected in the car, and it turns out that you have to remove the battery to charge it. Boo. So, Lloyd will return this and I’ll keep searching.

    Your requirements sound delightfully impossible. What a wonderful Quest. I hope it either takes you a long time, or that you find it immediately -- whichever option you enjoy more.

    I can’t wait until you find it! ‘Cause I like those requirements.

    Mom and I first thought it was NOT a compact camera but a big one. Upon a second look, you’re holding the box.

    I still vote that you get a DSLR. You won’t regret it.

    Whatever you get, post it. I have been looking for a camera for a long time and just can’t find one that I love.

    Dnag, I want a new camera too. I like mine, but it’s too big…which isn’t always a problem, just sometimes. Do keep us posted (hehe…that’s sort of a pun).

    (Psst…hey Lauren, Lloyd is being onry in the background)

    That character behind you could be Abraham Lincoln, but only if you squint your eyes just right. Well, perhaps Lincoln had a bit longer of a face.
