Not Me! Monday

Mckmama- Not Me Monday

This blog carnival was created by MckMama, as was way to (kinda) admit all those things you did during the week, that you'd rather forget! Come on over, link up, and join the fun! I'll start!

It was Not Me! who stayed up until 1am win an ebay auction for.....HER BIG GIRL CAMERA! It was certainly not me who acted like one of Pavlov's dogs in front of her computer monitor when she first happened upon said auction for a very gently used Canon 50D, 18-55mm lens, 3 batteries, charger, camera bag, external flash, 2 CF memory cards, all paperwork, original box, etc...... starting at $600, being sold by someone with 100%, positive seller feedback for many items. Nor was it me who got really excited when, in speaking to the man selling it, found out that he had bought it for his wife, who apparently really just wanted a simple camera to take occasional photos with. That it's shutter count is 50, and he went out and bought her an I-phone and now everyone is happy. AND... it's most certainly Not Me! who did a crazy little happy dance when I won said 50D set for $700..... I am WAY too mature for that! (Nor is it me who's bouncing around her house STILL this morning, giddy as a little kid in Disney World!)

It's also Not Me! who's still lens shopping.......because spending $700 in a day is PLENTY for me!

And it couldn't have been me who took her children to the park to take portraits this week, only to find herself half gray-haired, and ready to pull her other half a head of hair right out! My kids are ALWAYS well behaved and smile nicely for the camera. I never have surly looks, silly faces, or nose-pickers....NOT ME!

So how about you? Go check out MckMama's blog, and see what everyone else didn't do this past week!

I did the same thing when I recently got my new camera. Three weeks later and I'm still giddy.

OH! MY! GOODNESS! I was just getting online to talk to you about your camera and now I read that you have it all wrapped up. I am so happy for you, although there will be some difficulty speaking with you now that you are a canon owner...( I thought we were friends) I am truly thrilled. Look out world Here she comes!

SO what lens are you looking for. Ilove my nikon stuff, so I am not going ot be much help. I think ya got a deal. Way to go!

Love the camera...slightly jealous! :c) My child is a saint when it comes to getting her pictures taken, too! What a fun coincidence.
