Giving the finger to my camera

I hate digital cameras. Or I hate the one I own, anyway. This is my second camera, the first one, a Canon, died last year. I've had this Olympus for a few months now and I still can't figure it out. 

I took a picture of the sunset the other evening and it came out completely black with just a hint of pink sunset. IT WASN'T EVEN DARK OUTSIDE YET!! Grrr, augh! The stupid screen shows what I see, but the camera takes a completely different picture. I've tried everything I can think to do. Auto is no help, Auto has caused these problems. 

Oh, I just hate it so much.
I've got way too much camera hate right now.

I took pictures of a pair of green earrings that I made my mother. I thought I would expand "Jen's Life" a little and show my damnably cursed crafty side, but apparently the curse has spread to picture taking too.  *weeps uncontrollably*

Weekend news

Went shopping on Saturday. Wow, the traffic! It was like 7am on Monday morning instead of 11am Saturday! There had been a couple of accidents on the interstate, so traffic was being rerouted to another road. That rerouting disrupted lanes going both north and south! How is that even possible? HOW?? It took twice as long to get where we were going and twice as long to get back home again.

Sometimes traffic makes me so mad I vow never to leave the house again. One of these days I'll do it. I swear I will.

What I want

For my birthday, that is. (Did I mention I was totally going to do this before Christmas and I didn't get around to it? Procrastination station!)

First of all, I want this: (I nicked that image from somewhere)

It really doesn't cost much, someone buy it for me. Yes? No... *pout*
I want romance novels aplenty and a Mini Cooper, one of the newer biggish ones. I also want a game or two for my Nintendo DSi, a find the object one (those are hard to find at Target. I guess they want the shopping for them to be like the game. I'll take a huge marker with me and circle it in the store.)

I also want these:

First one is Sean Bean *drool* and the second one is a guy I found on these here interwebs. (He's probably gay or something. *sigh*)
Hmmm, I think that's all I want for my birthday. If I think of anything else, I'll let you know. ;)

Fresh out of the box

Does it have that new blog smell? All I can smell is rain and something else. Smells like the neighbors cooked something rotten and put hot ketchup on it. Yum. <3

Anywho... this blog will be about my life, mostly. I hope not to torture anyone about whatever aches and pains, strokes, heart attacks, oh the misery, etc. Because that's boring as hell, yo. I might be boring but I'm not that conceited to think people would actually want to moan with me.

So whatevs....

Hey! I've been wanting to put up a blog for a while. My birthday is coming up on Friday and I figured I'd do it now and just get it overwith and such. Yes? yes.

So now... how do I get followers?
