Because I want to brag, this is what I’ve purchased, pretty much according to my budgets and exactly what I wanted.

  1. HP Special Edition Laptop
  2. Dell 19” Widescreen Monitor
  3. Nikon SB-600 Flash
  4. Sigma Macro 105mm F2.8 Lens
  5. Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6
  6. Giottos Mini Rocket-Air Blaster
  7. Manfrotto 486 Compact Ball Head
  8. Calumet 7500 Tripod
  9. Crumpler 7 Million Photography Bag

I still need a laptop sleeve/bag. Any suggestions? I want something that slings across me messenger style and it has to be cute. If it were glittery that would be even better lol.

Today was a long day, with the migraine from hell, doing laundry… at least it was warmer! My son and I had lunch at Portillo’s yum and then got his hair cut. He was getting some ferocious emo hair. He’s actually been very well behaved today, even took care of me during the migraine from hell (I should just refer to it as MFH).

My Flickr account expires on Monday. I am just not sure if I am going to renew or not. Thoughts?

You should check out bags from Timbuk2. They are expensive but nice

I think I would cease to exist if my Flickr pro account expired lol. As much as it kind of hurts me to pay that price when I could easily host a gallery on my own site… I just love Flickr.

Nice purchases btw!

I have a Swiss Gear laptop case.  It’s wonderful.  Although it isn’t glittery, it keeps the laptop safe!

Pretty layout, I haven’t seen this one.  Also, I am insanely jealous that you have a laptop.  I have wanted one for about a year now but every time I get some extra money it goes to something stupid like rent or something. :p

We have the exact same laptop and we love it!
Did someone do their taxes?
Curious of the grand total!

Nice setup you have going. I am interested to see some photos with those lenses. Maybe I can be persuaded into buying one for myself.

Keep the Flickr account!! After all, 24.95 spread out over a year? It’s a bargain, plus we’d miss ya.  =)
