I also got into a mad pissing match with The Powers That Be on the condo board this week, but I'll tell you about that later. I'm in no mood.
For now, it is with great sadness that I am compelled to report the passing of my Pentax Optio s4 digital camera. A tried and true friend from beginning to end; a real trouper that has survived a good deal of harsh travel and somewhere in the range of 450 bag switches over the past 4 years. While if not for the faulty design of the battery door, I know in my heart that good ol' PO4 would have gone on for another 50,000 spectacular photos... it is currently merely a paperweight. And a poor one at that. One of its selling points was that it was so petite, it could fit in an Altoids box; now seemingly a perfect coffin.
I have been without a camera on my person for over a week now and while I'm making great use of my newfound free time (read: watching the scooba for hours on end and feeding it bits of carpet--you wouldn't believe the unbridled glee) that was otherwise spent offloading photos, charging batteries, and making other endless photoshop adjustments, I find this cameraless status to be quite troubling. Why, just this morning I walked passed a series of wooden stakes in the ground marking where the "Fiver optic" cable in the new building across the street is to reside and had no means of blogging it! FIVER OPTIC! I mean that's comedic gold. Wasted.
So, tell me about your camera... Love it? Hate it? Will it fit in your back pocket and not (audibly) complain when you crush and/or drop it? Cause, you know I tend to crush and drop things...
