I (maybe) finally ended my new camera body v. new external flash v. new lens conundrum. I’ll spend you the thrilling details. I *think* I like it. We’ll see. I have to take it for a little more of a test drive. Some of my pictures are still out of focus but I got a few good shots and didn’t feel like smashing my camera. So far so good. Seems pretty sharp. We went to Party City today. It was my first time. I’m never going back. Shudder. I was scared. Maybe New Years Eve wasn’t the day to go. I wish I could go back to believing that there was something fabulous inside that I was missing out on. We did pick out a pinata. Another first for me. Ben felt really sad for me when I was surprised that I have to fill it with candy myself. I never had a pinata, ok?? Geez.
