"He's gay used 2 mean he's happy."

And so it seems I am both today. Gay and gay. Or whatever. The last few days were pretty intense - work-wise and translating-wise, so I just couldn't spend my usual amount on time on LJ. And elsewhere. And today two items really made my day. They really did. Sometimes it's bizzare how material stuff can make us happy. But I guess it's the giver in me. I really enjoy giving stuff to people, so I enjoy getting it, too. Ok, in my case it "buying it" most of the time, because people don't seem to be the way I am. Whatever.


First just a picture. Just because I like it.




Make my day Item #1

I was really thrilled when I got my new Canon EOS 450D last July, but it soon became obvious I should have taken a slightly larger step and get a more serious cam. And it happened today. Canon EOS 50D is finally mine and I am all smiles. And the "old" 450G landed in Iggy's hands, so we're both happy, right? And that's all that counts.




Make my day Item #2

Oh, yes, my NikeID shoes arrived. To cut the long story short. It's another love affair. And since you have seen many cams already and not that many custom made hopefully unique Nike's, here are a few more shots.



 


*******************

Yes, someone please kill me, or take money away from me. Although.... after today's purchase I might stay low for a while.

*sigh*

Those are pretty fancy shoes.
I might have laughed at them earlier, but I like them. :)

See? All you need to do is trust me. Will you ever learn? :)

Thanks, A!

Oh, your new shoes are a work of art. And I like the candle photo too - I LOVE it.

Thinking of happy Tomaz and happy Igor brings a big smile to my face. :)

hehehehehehe I spent entire 10 minutes "designing" them. And they came out better than I had imagined, I must say.

Happiness should be Universal.

You can always send me money if you get tired of buying shoes, but I have an idea that neither of those is going to ever happen.

But if I get tired of buying shoes, is there another mission in life to keep me busy?

I'm a Nikon person like mikiedoggie, but this looks like a nice camera. I plan on upgrading soon. I do like my D40, but the I need more flexibility (like changing settings on the fly instead of going through an on-screen menu).

I expect you to use that camera in all situations. ;)

It's a great cam... I've been teasing myself with it for a few months now. It was mostly because of the fact I bought my previous 450D last summer, but... I couldn't help it. And I made the right move. One of HUGE pro's is also what you mentioned - changing settings is a poetry. :)

Oh, and I will use it in all situations.

I'd been wondering what your tools of choice were in creating such inspirational work!
Maybe one day soon, I'll upgrade from my trusty ol' Powershot!

You should have asked. :) I still have powershot S2. It's a lovely cam. Still take it with me now and then.

Well... at least now we know how to make you happy ...
The shoes are "totally you" ... like them! Are you sure you'll stick with journalism.... cause it seems you have other gifts?No... no... I'm not trying to become the boss of internal politics office ;-) I can't wait what your new toy can do ... hugs!

the NYT review because nobody's gonna be reading this
So it's just us.

I'm not pinching my nose. They look like you. And you love them which is all that matters, and I can see the little grrrl in you jumping up and down in them :-0.) The trim makes it. Cute! So: How much?

NOTICE: If you love that, and I have to say that it's you - don't EVER complain about or refuse to wear anything I ask you to wear. OK? :-.0)

That is all.

:-.D)

Monogram shoes. Hmmm... Unless you own the line. Well, maybe not. It looks like a logo that works. I like it. NO "!". But I like it. I can see how they go with the rest of your wardrobe.

Translating what?
