No Pictures.....

Lay-deeeez and Gennulmens! Welcome to the No Photo Moment here at CS&B. No sweet kitties, no wondrous flowers, no WIPs, nothing. In fact.......not even any pictures of my new couch, a very handsome acquisition which replaces the hateful ...uhm... odious ...err...UGLY loveseat-hide-a-bed which I DID love for many years but which had deteriorated out of my affection. (So tell us, Dale-Harriet, how did you really feel about that couch?) But seriously, folks, our lovely new piece of furniture...which it occurs to me may well be the FIRST piece of furniture...other than our bed, which is around 24 years old....we have ever actually BOUGHT, is lovely, comfortable, sizeable and perhaps best of all, cost us the princely sum of $60 at a very nice resale shop, roughly half the cost of a tank of gas. Ignore the wild sobbing, I'll be myself in a moment.

NOTE: I think I've won the weekly prize for the longest and possibly worst-constructed sentence in the blogosphere.

So ENNYWAYS. Not even pictures of the couch. Here's why:

Yesterday, the very day on which #1 Son and Mr Dearling managed the transfer of yuccchy couch to the curb and lovely new couch to the living room, Mr Dearling ALSO took me to select my this-year's anniversary present. And THAT just happens to be....

A. NEW. CAMERA !! Our anniversary is a couple of weeks off, but he wanted me to have some time to learn it before we head out to New York for a massive yarn crawl and historical tour the graduation of our nephew from Skidmore.

Therefore, be forewarned: there WILL be pictures of the new couch, and the kitties, and flowers, of WIPs and stash pictures....oh, and pictures of the visit next Monday of the Yarn Harlot to our very own little village of Madison, "sixty-three miles surrounded by Reality"!

WATCH THIS SPACE!

So, what kind of camera did you buy? I am about to purchase one myself (courtesy of a lovely little unexpected bonus gift certificate at work). Still trying to decide between the Canon PowerShot A720 (recommended by the fabulous knitblogger Claudia; tiny but with a 6x zoom, 8 megapixels, and image stabilization, the latter of which my beloved but heavy 10x zoom/4mp current camera does not have) and the Canon PowerShot SX100IS (slightly bigger and heavier, but with a 10x zoom, 8 MP)

You know, I think you were at the last Yarn Harlot WI visit in Eau Claire, were you not? I was there also, having a grand time and being a little awestruck. I don't think I'll make it this evening. Have a superlative time! I'll be knitting it up and imagining I'm there!

Hey, in case you haven't seen it yet -- your picture's up on Stephanie's blog!

I just realized that Madison is only 3 hours from here -- closer than Chicago! Not that I could have been there this weekend (I was in San Antonio) but still... it adds to the possibilities!

Wow, you've had some kind of week. Congratulations on being both on the Yarn Harlots blog and on the news. You looked great.
