Happy birthday

Today is my sister's birthday. It is also her daughter's birthday. They both read this blog (and sometimes comment) but they aren't reading it today because they're both in Las Vegas. We were invited to go to Las Vegas too but for a number of VERY GOOD reasons we decided not to go this time.

Anyway, happy birthday girls! Play the slots for me please.

Craig's list rocks

I sold my old BROKEN camera through Craig's List. For $20. In three days. Did I mention it was BROKEN?

(Now looking around the house for other garbage to sell.)

Craig's List rocks.

I'll give you the moon and stars ...

Babycakes and I talk a lot about simplifying our life and getting rid of "stuff." You know, those things that just sit on the shelf or hang in the closet. (Do I need to own not one, but two, vintage furs? Of course not.)

This is easier said than done. I love unclutter because of the way they unflinchingly write: you don't need this crap.

But Babycakes is having her birthday (June 28) and once again she is groaning about not wanting things for gifts ("Oy vey, please no tsatskes") so I must produce the perfect present that does not need dusting.

I need a new camera

brownie cameraI've been without a working camera for a week now and I can't decide what I want to buy. I loved having a small, point-and-shoot camera because it was so easy to carry around. Should I get another? If so, which one?

On the other hand, should I invest in a digital SLR (single lens reflex)? My very first camera was just like the one pictured here but by age 12 I was using a manual Nikon and developing my own film.

Tell me what cameras I should consider.

Pay me

My June horoscope promises lots of money in my future. It says:

"... a fat commission, prize, inheritance, bonus, or as venture capital infusion or a loan, insurance payout, a court or child support settlement, or as a scholarship ..."

Maybe I should try to sell that screenplay -- no wait! It isn't written yet. Inheritance? Not likely. Bonus? Not from my job!

I guess that means that everyone (yes dear readers, this includes YOU) should give me money. Or at least tell me where I should look for this promised windfall.
