i've been a fucking ghost, as far as Blogger is concerned this past month, haven't i? well, you can't really blame me, what with the sun and immediate access to the pool every day :) and then there's BB7. this week has been quiet, after Janelle's erratic/shady nominations and veto process.

BB7 | i've finally caught back up to thursday's show. i'm about to start the HOH comp. no idea who won yet, so shhh on that for now, please. thank you:)

that's about it. the feeds have kept me really busy. i'm trying to give the sun most of my time, though. taking advantage of that this summer. speaking of which, my mom and her boyfriend left this morning (how high school does that sound??!) for an 11-day camping trip :) so anyone in need of some pool activity, please drop by. i've also started looking into getting a digital camera. i'd been checking them out from time to time earlier this year but i really want one for this fall when i go visit my brother out west. and i don't want a flimsy one either just for the trip. i want quality (although not SLR quality just yet - my wallet still needs a bit of catching up if i wanna be able to play at the same level as my tastes are running ;) i've always had an eye for visual art, and i've had some opportunity to take pictures. my dad was an avid photographer. i still have his old Yashica camera (although it's not working); he took it on every trip with us. so yeah, i've always loved taking pictures but i haven't had a chance to experiment or delve as fully into it as i would have liked to. but this trip is the perfect chance to finally get on with this wish, get a good camera and start taking pictures. i've started looking at cameras more seriously this past week, and one of my top choices right now is Canon's Powershot S3 IS (although, if i had the money, or generous friends, i'd go for Canon's Digital Rebel XT SLR in a second). it's a good price and i've been looking at pictures taken with it on Flickr to judge the camera's picture quality and some of the results are simply astounding. this might be it for me.

have a great evening.
