Long, long day …

At the end of an endless series of conference calls discussing some tactical changes to products in my brand, it is past 7:15pm and this is my mood …

Boy do I "hate" change. I don't want anyone moving my cheese (so to speak).

Had to chuckle at the comment and photo though.

Speaking of chuckles and getting OT, rented a DVD for the Quark series. Saw the first episode "again for the first time." I don't know...I think it's funny.

Good luck with the produt changes.

What's the point of the pic exactly?

Kim Letkeman said...

Dotbalm ... how is it going? Nice to hear from you. I really enjoyed Quark back in the day ... especially when Ficus answered the twins' query of "how do we look?" with the very Spockian "light enters the eye ..."

It *is* funny :-)

All the best to you ...

Anonymous ... the pic is pointless. It's intent was to elicit comments of the same ilk. Thanks for playing.

LOL, Kim! They say a photo speaks a thousand words, and this photo speaks volumes. Priceless.

Sorry to hear your day was so busy. Mine involved making red velvet cupcakes with buttercream icing and gazing out the kitchen window at couple of meadowlarks who kept bashing their puffed-up chests together. Brought the FTF to mind.

Take care and I hope tomorrow's calmer.

Jada, so nice to hear from you too. Thanks for the kind words ... it was not the most fun you can have in a day, but it pays the bills.

I envy your day though ... baking and bird watching ... sounds fantastic ...

And yes, bashing chests together does remind me of a certain forum ...

Take care.

It was a dark and stormy night...this is the reaction the pic illicits (big word, eh?) Yer mood looks dark, Kim. Lighten up :-)

Kim....a bit OT and please answer only IF this interests you and IF you find time.

I'm very interested in learning your opinion on the recently announced Canon EOS 550D/Rebel T2i. At 18 MP and almost 4 fps of continous shooting capability.....I might be interested in this one.

Have you given this camera consideration?

Also, Dotbalm if you drop in, hello to you! :-)

Thanks,
Jada

Hi Gaye ... yeah, my mood was a bit dark. Tired. And tonight was longer.

Jada, I had not heard of that new Rebel. Canon does not interest me in general, as I love Nikon ergonomics (and white lenses are known to shrink make genitalia), but if this cam is based on 7D technology then it has some great promise indeed. That cam has really superior image quality. Not enough to shake me from my D700, but darned good! Nice to hear from you by the way :-)

Thanks for your input, Kim. This camera has really lasooed my attention, although I currently have all that I need for my shooting purposes.....except a small pocket camera. I know that some...pros (cough, cough, cough) have stated that the Canon G10 was.....too big for their britches, but to me....that's just a pantload. It was the perfect on-the-go camera for me and fit nicely in my coat pocket, my purse (and I have a tiny purse) and my larger blouse/pant pockets.

As you know, I too have high regards for Nikon. Actually, the G10 was the first Canon offering that I was totally pleased with, but I feel that I sold at the right time. I've returned a good-many Canons in my day, and I really don't like returning things.

Actually....at this moment I'm kicking myself for being lazy in that area. My Panasonic G1...the first week I used the camera, the etched lettering came off around the little setting wheel. I'm so picky about my gear that I didn't want to send it in for repairs. But should I choose to sell it one day, that's going to tear the resale value to smithereens. I need to check my sale's ticket. One year warranty, if I'm not mistaken. Maybe...just maybe.

Take care and I hope your day is/was good.

Jada, I remember the G10 fondly. I'd go G11 in a heartbeat if it had HD video, as it has even better audio than the ZS3. But I would miss the reach. So my Nirvana would be a Canon SX300 with HD video and the same audio and sensor as the G12 ... one day maybe.

Meanwhile, it would probably be worth it to send in the cam to repair the lettering, but it's something I'd probably not bother with ... I'm lazy that way myself :-)

Take care.
