2010: A year in review

Here are my top ten events for 2010:

  1. I went fully freelance with my writing and am now officially using my expensive college degree.
  2. I successfully completed November’s National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) challenge.
  3. My cat had kittens!
  4. I finally got new tires on my car.
  5. I upgraded my cell phone (twice) and finally settled on a Droid X.
  6. I also upgraded my digital camera.
  7. Ohio got hit with its first blizzard of the season, and I didn’t have to drive in it!
  8. The FAA N34 crew flew into town because my dad made an RC model of the big plane, and I was able to spend the entire weekend with them at the Cleveland Air Show.
  9. I actually became a football fan.
  10. I interviewed Michael Symon, Cleveland’s Iron Chef.

And there’s more greatness in store for 2011!

Fun with my new camera A.K.A. chasing my cats around like a loon.

I received my new camera Friday, and promptly decided to test it out on my favorite subjects – my cats. Here they are:

This is Hercules in a rare, quiet moment. Usually he’s busy keeping the other cats in line or beating up toy mice.

Abby actually likes to be photographed. She’ll turn toward the camera and pose for me.

Loki is my Diva Cat. She’ll run towards me as if she wants her picture taken, then turn her head away at the last second, like she’s changed her mind.

Xena is funny. Josh and I call her “ManBearPig” (Southpark reference) because it fits her. She’s out of proportion and clumsy. And hilarious. (See below)

Because I needed it – that’s why…

Yesterday I received my Verizon Wireless rebate from my new cell phone purchase. Today I managed to spend all but $15 of it on a new camera. Oops. I didn’t even hold onto that $100 for 24 hours.¬†

I needed a new camera though. I have a tiny one that I carry in my purse that’s only 3.1 megapixels, and that was fine because my old cell phone took great pictures, so I didn’t need it all the time. My new phone takes so-so pictures, so…

After browsing various websites, I decided to buy a used Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS15. It’s cute, small, and 12 megapixels. And only $79 plus shipping! Woo hoo!

My professional one will cost WAY more than that, when I finally get it, but that’s a story for another day.
