Picked up a new toy on Friday evening; and spent a good chunk of Saturday reading manuals. It’s definitely (and quite obviously) more complicated than my point and shoot, but also more so than my old Nikon N4004 35mm film camera.

Current lenses are my old AF Nikkor 50mm f1.8 prime, an old AF Nikkor 35-80mm f4-5.6 zoom, and the AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm f3.5-5.6G zoom that came with the camera. On order is an AF-S Nikkor 55-200 f4-5.6G zoom, which should be at the store in the next couple of days.

It’s going to be a lot of fun learning how to use this to it’s fullest capabilities …

Went to a party on Friday night downtown, and drank way too much wine; my glass just never seemed to get empty. Had to get a ride home from a good friend, and then had to figure out how to get back downtown yesterday to pick up the Trooper; especially since I’m planning on skiing today, and my skis were locked up in the back.

The hangover wasn’t too bad … not much of a headache at all, but my stomach was pretty funky for a huge chunk of the morning … I don’t know if it was the wine, or the burrito and tacos I ate for dinner on Friday before going to the party. Since my original plan for getting back downtown didn’t happen, it looked like I was going to have to ride my bike, which I wasn’t really looking forward to considering my tummy situation.

Thankfully, Kim called to ask if she could drop by the apartment to drop off some of our old Christmas tree ornaments (which reminds me that I need to go pick up either a very small live potted tree, or some sort of ornament tree. Since she was heading downtown after to help another friend of hers who recently lost his father, I bummed a lift with her, which worked out well.

Now … off to take a shower, get some more coffee, eat breakfast, and get ready to head up Big to Solitude.
