    The Olympus E-510 is awesome. I’ve had mine for a couple of months now. Be sure to take a serious look at it if you’re shopping for D-SLRs!

    Bully to you for lasting even four hours at Blockbuster, I have a friend who was a manager and oh, the stories!

    I’ve got nothing pertinent to say except that I’m glad you’re posting again. While I’m sure your holiday hiatus was well-deserved and well-spent, I kept wishing you’d pop in with some exciting new news! Happy new year.

    If you like the photo stuff from SwissMiss, have you seen Photojojo? Lots of fun stuff there in a weekly e-mail. I constantly refer to their archives.

    This is why I love your blog, its full of crafts, home design, food, and tech posts!
    And I totally think there are more PC games out there that are not FPS. Well, they can have elements of the genre like Bioshock but have a completely different feel. I need to start reading that message board!
    Thank you for the wonderful and insightful blog!

    Hi Megan,

    I got a Panasonic PADMCFZ18K Lumix DMC-FZ18 Digital Camera for Christmas. It isn’t a DSLR but it is really awesome. I did some research and it got really good reviews. Good luck on your search!

    I have an eye fi card and love it so far! Unfortunately, only one of my cameras uses SD, so I’m thinking about getting an adapter just so I can use it all the time. It’s very handy.
