Technolust. And an Announcement.

I want the Nikon D2x to have my children. This is one sweet bit of photography genius. It’s a 12.4 Megapixel digital SLR camera (meaning that it generally works the same way as my current Nikon but instead of images being recorded on film, they are recorded as an exceedingly high quality digital image). This is terrific since film processing has become so expensive that I’ve become limited in how much I can use my camera simply because I can’t afford to get the film developed (and don’t get me started on the 4 quid scanning fees they now charge to get a photo CD with it, meaning I have to scan the photos myself which takes forever). So the whole point is that I want every person reading this to get a hold of my folks and let them know you want in on the purchase. It’s going to be my graduation/birthday/Christmas present from pretty much everyone I’ve ever met (it does cost about $5 grand without any extras including the all-important memory cards).

But this camera is going to be of great use to me for my announcement. I have decided to re-marry. This time around it will be to my partner from work, Lauren. Why, you ask? Well, because Lauren is a beautiful, intelligent, sweet, and capable woman. But all those pale next to the fact that she just got accepted to Med School on the island of St. Martin in the Caribbean. So, I think I’m going to come along. Keep all this to yourselves for the moment though, because I haven’t really asked her yet and (and you can ask the folks in the pub on this one) you really don’t want to piss this woman off! 😉

That’s all. For those of you who need a clue, the bit about me gettin’ re-hitched is a total joke. Lauren’s great and all, but I think I’ll keep my policy of never marrying someone I’ve never even dated intact for the time being. This will of course change the moment any of my Three Future Wives realize that I’m alive (the TFW being Shirley, Angelina, and Dido of course!). Hope y’all are enjoying your weeks. I know I am since I’m — you know — doing jack all week (though I did bake cookies today for a friend, so not a totally wasted day)! 😀

Slainte.
