Canon or Nikon

That is the question of the week here at Look Busy. Last year I was drooling over the Nikon D40. I talked to the Captain about it and we decided to wait until the taxes were done and go from there. We got a refund but chose to hold off on the camera. Enter the stimulus check. I think I talked the Captain into letting us get a laptop. I had no valid reason for having one. I just want one. I don't go anywhere except my store and my house but still. When we go to my parents' place, it would be nice to have one. When we go on vacation we I won't have to sit in the lobby and be parked on the communal computer to get our my fix. So, I'm pretty sure we were well on our to getting a pretty pink laptop. Then I went to the best store on the face of the planet and boy, was that a chore to drag my ass out there. Oh how I hate it so. (insert sarcasm)

I was in that area of the store to get a new camera card because I have all up and lost the one we had. Nice right? We've been using the same card since we got the camera 5 years ago. Miracles. They happen. SO....I just wanted to look at the digital SLRs and damn it if I didn't fall in love all over again. I cheated on my laptop and am having a torrid affair with the Nikon on special. I saw the Canon as well and thus, my dilemma.

What does a girl do?
  • Get the Nikon?
  • Get the Canon?
  • Get the laptop?
  • Lose her mind trying to figure it all out?

Scratch that last one off the list. Done. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks folks!!

and hey, Canon and Nikon? I would be more than happy to test drive a camera if your heart is so warm and full of consumer love that you'd want to send one to me. I have kids, they are cute and I would totally take a bajillion photos. It would be fun. For both of us. Come on, you know you want to. I'm looking at you Nikon. Rawr!

I have a Nikon and I'm enjoying it, but I've also seen Canons take rockin' photos. It's a touch decision. See if you can take one for a test-drive at your local camera shop. That's a nice dilemna to have though! You know you're buying one of those fun things.

I'm totally all for Canon since buying "Hilary Federwhore" (yes, you must NAME your camera!).... but... I have to admit the odd longing for the new Nikon SLRs that send lewd and provocative spam to me via email. Hmmmm.....

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

When was the first time that you realized that your home was not like other people’s homes? 

My house has always been different from other houses. I don't think I could narrow it down to a particular time. I recall not having friends stay over. Ever. I always stayed at all my friends' houses and called their moms "Mom".

Not a lot of my friends were only children so to them, I was the odd duck. Believe me, I *was* the odd duck. Just for a myriad of other reasons.

Having a family of my own, I really see the differences in houses. We are more relaxed with some things that would not fly in other houses. It gets loud in our house. Extremely loud. If I stopped them from being loud all the time, I wouldn't get a single thing done. I tend to jump in right away when the kids are arguing because it can, and will, quickly snowball into WWIII and someone (or both) will be crying. We let our son play the Wii, computer or DS for far longer than other parents or even the "…


Please do not ask me to email photos out, I get entirely too many requests for them. These are the ones that I have at home, thanks to a couple of sources.

This Has To Be Said

I haven't blogged in 8 months. We bought a house, still unpacking, school started. You know, life. I felt the need, the urgent need to blog about the Adrian Peterson situation today. I am full of all sorts of feelings and had to write about it. I would love to hear your thoughts on this whole thing. No really, I would. I don't feel I was a douchebag in my writing so all I ask is you not be a douchebag in your response. Thanks.

My thoughts on the Adrian Peterson situation (but first, some backstory):
I was spanked as a child. I'm pretty sure most of us that grew up in the 80s were.Until the summer between 5th and 6th grade I lived in Charelston, SC and from 6th to 11th grade, North Chicaco, IL. I have seen every form of discipline doled out on a child. I've seen spankings, beatings, hairbrushes smacked into heads, spoons hitting the tops of heads, whips, belts and even switches. I've seen it all.Most of you know that my son is named after a little boy who died from c…
