Have I mentioned that I love surprises?Posted: June 10, 2010
Wahoo! Yesterday, the postman, who I’m now so fond of I could marry, delivered an unexpected check from some extra work I’d put in some time ago!
For a whole thirty seconds, I entertained the whole responsible “put it into savings” concept, but I bought a certain something that starts with Nikon and ends with P90 🙂
I know I just replaced my broken camera, but I honestly haven’t been very happy with the one I just bought. I’m assuming it’s because I’m pretty cheap with my electronics, and the quality kind of shows. Since I’m still not quite willing/able to drop $800+ on a DSLR, I did some research and felt like this bad boy could come close – for a Point-and-Shoot. Fingers crossed that it helps improve the blog!
Do you have any experience with Nikon P+S’es? Good, bad, happy, sad?
Or: If you got a surprise check and could buy any gadget right now, what would it be?
I spent the afternoon gym shopping. I probably won’t be joining one until August, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to get an eye out now.
It seems that I’ll be looking at $40 a month regardless of which one I choose. I keep wavering back and forth between feeling like it’s worth it and feeling like it’s a waste. Running the lake is free (and gorgeous!), but it’s absolutely sweltering, and I’ve got no strength training options at my home.
Gold’s offers several classes, but the only ones that would mesh with my work schedule would be at 5 AM or weekends!
I keep wavering back and forth! Do you think gym memberships are worth it?
I know I’d appreciate the extra security factor, the air conditioning (!!!!), the strength training options, and the occasional classes, but would it be worth almost $500 a year? When I look at it that way, it seems so wasteful!
Popping in and watching everyone else sweat was excruciating. So much so that on coming home, I needed some refreshment in the form of yet another (oddly textured) fruit smoothie:
Watermelon chunks, an extremely ripe pear, POM Pomegranate Lychee Green Tea, two scoops of AloeRed, ice.
Thank you for all your smoothie ideas! I can’t believe I *still* haven’t tried the chocolate cherry bomb, given my love of chocolate + fruit combos!
Just think: the weekend is just one and a half more days away! Catch ya soon 🙂
