I apologize... well, not really.

I really, really wanted to blog today. But had no idea what to post. So you get this. You're welcome.

Okay, that was kind of a lie.. I had something to post, but it got vetoed by my lurvly laptop which did not want to play nice with my camera. My husband can get them to cooperate (because he's just a genius, that one..), but when I get them together.. well, they're just all kinds of stupid. So I gave up. Sorry. I'll post it another day. After I can pry my little minions off the main computer and dump my camera on there. So there.

Some randoms for you:

"Yes Torrin.."
"Do you know why I like blood?"
"Um.... no, why?"
"Because it's red."
"Oh.... Okay."

"Did you toot Ellie?"
"No, I farted."
"Oh, I see. Is it stinky?"
"No, I'm a girl."
"So girl farts don't stink?"
"No, it was a pretty fart."
"I see. So do boy farts stink?"
"Yes. But I a girl."
"Yes you are. So your fart was pretty?"
"It was beautiful."
"Yes, Ellie. Your farts are beautiful."

"I'm going to wait until I need to poop.. so that I can make room in my stomach. Then I'm going to have some lunch."
"You already had lunch, Kieran. You ate a bagel and cream cheese."
"Oh. That's right. Then I'll have some breakfast."
"You already had breakfast too."
"I did?"
"Yes, you had a waffle."
"Oh... I am such a dork!"

So, my camera broke. I had a Canon PowerShot S2 IS. It was nice. I was very happy with it. We had lots of good times together.. *sniff* I'm sad.

The Problem.

Notice how the lense is extended? Yeah. It won't go back in. Is stuck. Is broken. In the past, every time we've replaced a digital camera, we've upgraded. Sadly, not the case this time. It broke probably over a month ago.. Long enough that I don't remember. The kids swiped it (a regular occurrence round these parts..) and.. well.. they broked it.

This time? We didn't have money for a big fancy camera. And, after a few weeks without one *cry*, we decided to get a stand-in camera until my awesome husband can buy me a fancy new one (I may or may not have one picked out already.. oh hai Canon Rebel XSi DSLR.. *drool*). I am now the proud owner of a Canon PowerShot 790 Elph.

The Solution.

That Wordless Wednesday post down there?? I took that picture the day I got my new camera. Pretty good no? I thought so. That happy face? Yeah.. Torrin was excited about the camera too. My kids are all a bunch of show offs.. and if a camera comes out, all we hear is 'Take mah pitchur, take mah pitchur!' So yeah, no camera = no fun.

I swear, she's not as psycho as she looks..

So there you go.. That's about all I got today.. I promise I'll try harder next time..... Or maybe not. And now, I'm going to go do something mature... like dishes. Or not.

Anyways, we will fix the problem later. I loved those comments from the kids, I know I was present at one of them otherwise I would not believe you. After all, you tend to embellish, but not in this case.

Cant wait til the next post!

I am extremely jealous, and your child is adorable. The End.

Casey said...

I'm sorry to hear that your camera got some lens-viagra and got stuck in the on position. Ok, that was a stretch.

That picture is adorable, she doesn't look crazy at all!

So now i know: girl farts are pretty. I suspected as much...

I sometimes call myself a dork when I have forgotten how much beer I've had. Man, I am such a dork...

Great pictures, too. And that 790 rocks!

I love the elph. I used to have a Canon EOS, but after my accident I couldn't lift it. I sooooooo missed photography. Briefcase got me a little elph and I love being able to take photos again even if they aren't quite the same quality. AND it fits in my purse so I always have it with me. Love it!

Ah, I heard very nice things about the S2. Almost bought a used one once, but the money I was gonna spend on it became needed for bills.

My current camera is a Canon A570, which I think is a pretty nice little point-n-shoot. Hope your Elph serves you well.

Wifey had a 1st generation Rebel and recently upgraded to an XSi when she got some insurance money after UPS manhandled some china that had belonged to her grandmother. So far, she seems to really like it.

Btw, who did you daughter just disembowel, and did she go for the liver or the intenstines first?

Jess said...

Yay for new cameras!!! Those little blessings from heaven are how I remember most of my nights! :)

ChurchPunkMom said...

Aman: yes. especially ours. ;)

Mary: isn't she though?

Casey: ha! yes, but a funny stretch.. and thank you. :)

IG: and don't you forget it! we're very happy with the camera so far.. I'm enjoying its compactness.

24@<3: yeah, I'm loving the small size. in the pocket, in the purse.. even when we get a new one, this will probably be the one we take with us most places.

Kurt: liver first.

ChurchPunkMom said...

Jess: Ha! I know what you mean. ;)

Mama Dawg said...

Random posts are always a refreshing treat.

Yeah, I'm drooling over your dream camera, too.

Keely said...

Hahhahah! She's super cute, psycho or not.

The Elphs are actually pretty good cameras. Not to mention reasonably durable.

That lens thingy happened to my last Power Shot too. Oddly, after the toddler played with it. I sense a theme.

I love poop-talk!

I have a Canon SD750 - you'll love it!'s so compact and we use it a lot for video.
