Camera 4 Sale

I'm totally ga-ga over the new Panasonic. I don't really see myself shooting anything on the Canon at this point. Plus with the 4 year warranty, actually needing to keep it as a backup is not really a necessity.
So...I think I'm going to put it up for sale. Here's what I'd include:
*Link might not be exact brand but can be used as a reference point.
**Not exact model, but pretty darn close
I'm thinking of asking $300 for the whole kit and caboodle (+Shipping, if it's not someone local). I don't think that's too out of line for a digital The Canon's still sell for around $200 on eBay. And the thing that makes this a little nicer than the newer Canon's is that it has a mic jack and an analog pass-thru, meaning you can connect it to another device, copy the info on to miniDV and then import it into your computer to edit (I'm almost contemplating keeping this camera just for that reason). It's a good package (one that served me very well for a couple years), and recently the CCD sensor was replaced by Canon (along with a professional cleaning by the fine folks at Canon when they had it in there).  The lens has always had the uv filter on it, so it's pristine.
There's a ministry that a couple friends of ours are looking to start where a church in another country (Zimbabwe, I think) would be taking video "journal" entries about what was happening in their community and church and we would do the same here. We would then swap (I'd probably be the one to edit the footage we received from them). It sounds pretty exciting and it would be neat to have my gear be part of something like that (and to also be involved in the editing). It's an interesting "coincedence" that I have the new gear and don't have a need for the old gear, and this ministry does. So, we'll see how that goes.
I'll be posting more soon on how kick @$$ the new camera is.
And in case you're wondering....yes, I can take credit cards. So, lemme know if you're interested.

Marriage Material??

I had a friend call me today, fuming. I consider myself a good listener on most days. Considering that I was out of town on a work trip and doing absolutely nothing in my hotel room, my listening game was on-point.

She recounted the exchange that sent her off. I will spare you some of the more personal details, but the gist was, at one point, the dude-bro she was talking to flat out told her that she wasn’t marriage material.

Torn between wanting to be a supportive friend and being completely gobsmacked, I felt her frustration. No. That’s not quite right. I didn’t feel the same frustration she felt. I’m approaching what some consider middle age. I’m white. I’m primarily interested in women. Oh, and I have a penis., I can never truly feel the same frustration she was feeling. Or an anger that comes from the same place her anger came from. No matter how in touch I am witn my feminine side (whatever the fuck that actually means).

Instead, the frustration and anger I was feeling w…

Out of Sorts

Not sure what my deal is today. I got up this morning to go for a walk and it was spitting rain, but no biggie. My thriftstore Nikes were kind of hurting my feet, so that didn't help. But it felt good to go for the walk (other than the hurting feet). And it's all going well...and then I get into work and just turn into PMS-Man.  I don't know what my deal is. I just feel bitchy this morning and I'm not sure why. Yeah. That's all I got.

Post Con-Fusion

It's 5:40 AM on a Wednesday. I have been up for an hour. I have an outline for a work in progress that I intended to work on this morning. I was in the middle of a chapter that I started at lunch and had every intention of continuing this morning. But, much like me, it seems the characters wanted to sleep in today. They wanted to just hunker under the covers as the rain danced its hypnotic melody on my roof. The swoosh swoosh swoosh of the ceiling fan keeping time with the rest of the nocturnal orchestra.

So, I shifted gears. I am taking  a course on getting more words on the page. Something that I want to do need to do if I am to get all of these books that are floating around in my head out in to the world. It's not so much that I think the whole world will love and adore them, although I certainly hope that is the case. No, it's more the fact that it's getting crowded up there. I need to get these words on the page for my own sanity as much as anything else.
