Sad News...

It's not about my job, for once.

No. It's about what happened to me on Valentine's Day.

I had a wonderful Valentine's Day. I went to church, went to my writing group, prepared the boy's presents, and then went out to eat with him and some friends, where my pink chocolate chip cheesecake was a SMASH! It was wonderful, the whole day.

Except...I broke my camera.

I was passing it around the table to show a picture of the bowl I melted while making said cheesecake, and I dropped it. Everyone went *GASP!* but I assured them it was fine. And I picked it up and turned it on...nothing. It was dead. I tried cleaning out the battery case, squeezing it, dropping it again, among other things. No luck.

My friends, it's time for me to buy a new camera. I'm scared...and poor.

I gasped the loudest. I feel really bad about that. You were showing me your pictures.

Ugh. Sorry to hear that, Justin--especially since I'm guessing some photos of the pink chocolate chip cheesecake were stored within :(

fwiw - mu point and shoot is an olympus stylus tough and i can't say enough good things about it. t's even many years old and still awesome. i have the 770sw. :-)

I will now have a moment of silence for your fallen camera.

THanks for your sympathy, all. And don't feel responsible, Kathy...I've been dropping stuff all week.
