When I’m Rich … (Yeah, Right)

Itty.jpg I wish I had a better camera. This picture is from the Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, the blog of the greatest cat photographer of all time, and I mean all time. If you go all the way into the future and all the way into the past, Laurie Cinotto will always be the best EVER. I’m tempted to buy the same camera she uses, a Nikon D-40, as if that’s going to magically make my pictures as good as hers. For that reason I will also consider the Canon EOS 30D that Shreve Stockton uses over at The Daily Coyote. But then I look them up on Amazon and see that they each cost over a billion dollars and there goes that idea.

I did start out my working days as a photographer. But I remember at the time seeing people around me taking better pictures than I could using a plastic camera that only cost a $1. So not that great cameras aren’t great, but they are not strictly necessary.

That said, when I am rich (hahahahaha) I am getting a better camera. And an apartment with a fireplace. Okay, and after I’ve contributed to all my favorite charities, a new Mac, an iphone, new jeans, a couple of dogs, a head to toe pampering day at a spa, and another one at the hair salon, a thousand billion songs from itunes, a thousand billion books from Amazon, I guess I should get more clothes, a piano, oh and a video camera, and a month long vacation somewhere, I don’t know where but if I had to pick today, Alaska or Mexico. Okay, I’m done. This is part of the reason why I’m not rich. I don’t really care if I ever get these things. Except I will eventually need a new computer. And I am seriously considering get dogs someday.
