    That's a nice camera. I think I want Canon too. I have an older one (not digital & it's still great). I have 2 (digital) FujiFilms that are blurry at random times & I have to keep turning it on/off, then the focus may be sharp. :confused:

    Another gripe is that I can forget about tkg action shots. When you press the button on the FujiFilm, it takes the picture 2-3 sec later, so the moment is long gone. :mad:

    Ms I. Increase your ISO speed, it will close the shutter quicker and you can capture the sport shots. However, when you increase your ISO, you will also increase noise in your picture. But if you take time to balance it out, it will be fine.

    I did not plan on shopping on Black Friday. However, I recently got another personal trainer (I'm a sucker) and hope, hope, hope to stick with it. Dh is trying to help and gave me permission to get my very first iPod. Granted, it's a baby shuffle, but it's bright pink, beautiful and all mine! I'm charging it as I write this, and plan on listening to a Twilight podcast while I work out tonight. I'm making a running playlist full of great songs, but I'm very anal and don't want to put any songs on it until I'm positive they are what I want, and in the right order. I'm going to work on it tonight. For now, a podcast will do nicely.

    irx7fani, thanks for the info!

    mandagap06, thanks. I'm jealous that you get to go on a trip in Jan. I wish I was!


    I LOVE getting packages in the mail! I'm waiting on a few things that will be coming. The latest thing I ordered was from Amazon.com. I got a DVD movie & pageboy style hat.

    Aside from Christmas shopping and buying essentials for myself, the most recent thing I purchased what a ticket to a U2 tribute band in the area. I went out with friends and my sister for my birthday Sat. night.

    That is the perks of being a sub and not a reg. teacher is that I get to miss a day of work since I know ahead of time. Alough I would gladly have taken a personal day to go on this trip. I am so excited and Jan. can not get here fast enough. Sry to thread hijack!

    I also love getting packages in the mail. The girls' Wii, Black Friday purchase, came in yesterday. My husband was off yesterday when the package arrived. He put it in the trunk of the car and told the girls to get the package out of the trunk for me. They went crazy when they saw the box and jumped on him.

    Yesterday I did all the wrapping, to get a look at the "piles."

    As I suspected, Julia's was noticeably smaller than the others-- she wants everything, so I've been putting her off. I knew I could always run and get her some stuff.

    Peter and I went to Target and got her some bulky gifts: a HSM pink Caddilac, some HSM sheets, and 2 chapter books. We spent some serious money, so it must have been more than that, though I forget the details.

    My niece's birthday is this Saturday, and I did a BAD thing: I had her letter to Santa, waiting to go to Macys for their Make a Wish promo. I opened it and found out what she wanted, then got her an item from the list :) Brian laughed for 5 minutes when I told him!

    Well, I did tell Brian that I had crossed the toy off the list for Santa, so Courtney wouldn't get doubles :)

    LOL I think this has been hijacked a few times.

    I was the champ too when we got ours. Did you get the Wii Fit? It will be under our tree for Christmas.

    I myself would like the wii fit. I know one of my gifts(my grandmother asked me what I wanted ..it's a winter jacket and mom asked me to try it on to see what size I need). Other than that I really did not need/want anything.

    I just decided to get the same gift for my husband, my friend and her family, my mom and Peter's mom:

    A chocomotion machine. It's made by Mr. Coffee and supposedly makes incredible hot chocolate.

    I stopped by Walmart (I HATE that place!!!) on the way home, but they were out. So I went to walmart.com and ordered 4.

    They could have given me shipping to my local store for free, but I am NOT stepping foot in that store between now and Christmas. So for $15 total, they'll ship all 4 to me. The good part is that they were cheaper with shipping than the base price at amazon.com

    So now, aside from Stocking stuffers, I'm done!!!

    I've never heard of a cocomotion before but it has excellent reviews on Amazon!

    I'll have to check one out in the store. :)

    Got this Wolf Design watch and pen case for my watch collection. I also plan to get a Mont Blanc soon so I figure it would be nice to have a nice place for it to rest.

    Walmart emailed me overnight; the order has shipped :)

    I was talking about it at work on Tuesday, as being something I wanted to look at for all those hard-to-buy-for people. Two different people in the room raved about it.

    We brought our doggy to Petco yesterday to take a picture with Santa! The picture came out so cute and he behaved very well. We bought him a bunch of treats as a reward and bought the framed picture.

    How cute! During break, my dog deserves another nice pampering. I need to give him a bath, trim his nails, brush his teeth, & although he's a short-haired dog, he could use a nice all-over shave.

    Darn! I could have my new computer any day now, but nooo! I cancelled the order yesterday because I was pretty sure I was going to order something else & I wanted to hurry & cancel before they shipped it to me. Now, just 1 day after cancelling, I wanted it back & reordered it & now the shipping date is 2 wks later. My entire Christmas break would have practically passed! :mad:

    I bought myself a Coach Tranatlantic Messenger bag yesterday, but then felt guilty for buying myself something I don't need yet. So I'm thinking of returning it. The messenger bag is beautiful (I sound like a girl) but d*mn it's nice....I just don't have a need for it yet, I was planning to use it this summer during my Administrative Intern maybe. But I guess I can buy it then, I'm just afraid they don't have anymore.
