What would life be like without gadgets?

Canon IXUS 220 HSI should be awarded some kind of prize for being an excellent spender, because I spent another 1699,- NOK today. I know, can you believe it? And what did I trade for such an amount of money? A compact camera, namely a Canon IXUS 220 HS, and I adore it! No, I know. I didn't need another camera, I do have my Canon EOS 450D that I use for a lot of my pictures, but it's honestly too damn big to bring along when I venture outside or go on smaller trips, and I'm one of those who often see things around me I'd like to photograph. Back in 2008 we bought another little Canon IXUS, the 80 IS, but I don't like it. At all. So now I have an adorable little black companion with me everywhere, and I hope we'll grow to become good friends! Ambitious as I am (!), I figured it could be handy to have a camera able record in full HD (1080p) should I ever feel the urge to record makeup tutorials for YouTube. Or something. And it was cute. And black. And matte! I love the matte finish, and it makes it so much better to grip. Adorable!

So there you have it. Now you know what I've been up to today. Apart from being slightly annoyed with the Norwegian Customs, who are holding my package of Ozotics Pro Multi Chromatics hostage in Oslo at the moment, I mean. I also spent last Thursday in Lier, visiting my sister and seeing my niece and her boyfriend, and my nephew again, before we drove down to Hjortneskaia on Friday to board the M/S Color Magic headed to Kiel and back, with parents and in-laws! We all had an awesome time together, and I hope we can do it again soon. I'm gonna fantasize about the roasted deer in blueberry gravy I had for dinner for a very long time!
