Can you believe it’s the end of April already, doesn’t it seem like we just celebrated New Year’s just a couple of weeks ago? It’s amazing and scary how time flies. I’ve blogged a record 23 times this past month.* I’m trying to make this part of my routine almost daily, even though I’m sure no one reads this (exceptions; Jennie, Bruce & Mo!) This also just serves as a nice diary of my life. I need to figure out how to download it sometime for posterity’s sake
I immediately called the company to see what the cost would be. They said standard repairs cost $29.00 and that I’d have to ship the camera to them. I didn’t want to do this because the camera still worked but the door didn’t stay all the way shut. They didn’t want to sell me that part so I could do the repair myself. I’m a good taker-aparter and putter-back togetherer and was confident I wouldn’t break the thing.
So I searched online to see if someone did offer that part, enter www.digitalcamerapartsdepot.com/, I was cautious going in because I’m not excited about doing business online with companies that I don’t know. Yes, Wal-Mart and Target, you’re safe, you’ll still get my money. I paid for the part which was several cents cheaper than Olympus’ repair costs and I didn’t have to ship off my camera. The part arrived in days (yesterday, in fact) and I took my camera apart, replaced the compartment door and it’s as good as new again.
If you’re looking for a single part for your camera, I’d have no problem recommending that website. They even posted my customer satifaction comment on their page. I hope you don’t have to use that website, but if you do, go for it. Just be careful with your camera, no bobbling!
Don’t you love how one day you’re productive and the next you struggle to get out of bed? Tuesday was my productive day but today’s another story. Yesterday was sunny and I got all sorts of things done, cleaning the place, washing the car, getting my hair cut and I even bought a bag of chips. I joke.
Today, it’s rainy and I could care if I do anything although I have plenty on the proverbial “to do” list.
I can’t wait for my passport to arrive for the trip. I got the “official” invite in the mail so I’m going. Now, I have to get the tickets there and to North Carolina for the other wedding I’m attending.
I’m working like a son of a gun trying to get one of my friends up to Ohio for a visit this summer and I have to make a return to Michigan one weekend.
Life comes at you fast. You just have to keep up. “C’mon keeping up.”
Current mood: Fantastic
The interesting part for me is finding out who really is the bad guy. We know Sylar is evil and he’s killed several people to absorb their powers. We also know Linderman isn’t the nicest of people. Here are my questions and thoughts from last night’s episode. They are developing something with the Petrelli family. Peter and Nathan’s mother knew about their powers along with Claire’s ability to heal herself. Does the mother have some sort of power that she’s not exposed? I thought at one point during the episode Peter’s death was a way the writers could explain why Nathan and Linderman teamed up. “You heal my brother and I’ll do your bidding.” But that didn’t happen. Peter healed himself.
I’m getting tired of Candice, the illusion caster, who can transform herself into anyone else. It’s too convenient to do that every time. HRG’s wife, Nikki and even Claire… That’s enough all ready with her morphing. What does Linderman have planned for Micah?
The alliance of HRG, Parkman and Ted is an interesting one. They’re headed to NYC to destroy the tracking device that allows the corporation to find the “Heroes” anywhere in the world. I like where they’re going with this storyline.
The two minutes with Hiro at the end of the show just has to make you wonder, what’s next? The timeline constructed inside Issac’s studio gave a little (very little) insight into what could happen next but then the cliffhanger. You hear a sword come out of its sheath and it’s Hiro but looking a lot less geeky. Who is he and is he good or bad. We’re just six days away from the answer. Hopefully… NBC.com gives a little insight into this question. Hiro in the future doesn’t turn evil. He’s trying to find the answers and save the world and the cheerleader. He reveals that Sylar kills Claire. He’s looking for the person to kill Sylar first so that doesn’t happen.
Ever have one of dem days when you know you have to get things done but just don’t wanna get out of bed? I’m sitting here on my bed, wrapped up with a comforter and listening to talk radio (C’mon Bob Frantz!) I gotta go to Kohl’s to get some new sunglasses, stop by for an appointment and get a new football for when my nephews come over this weekend.
