It's beginning to look a lot like...

...Christmas list time.

I'm posting this for the benefit of my family, who will no doubt want to buy me/us books for Christmas. The truth is, we're in the midst of our second gigantic book purge of 2008. This one is so big that it warrants us opening up our own Amazon store to get rid of some of these books.

Anyway, I really don't want more books (or gift cards to book stores) for Christmas. Much as I love them, we need to make space for more important things, and I already have more unread books than I know what to do with.

So, here are the things I would definitely love to get for Christmas:

1) Flip Video Mino Series Camcorder



2) Gorillapod



3) Lomographic Holga Starter Kit



4) Canon 430EX Speedlite Flash



5)

I'm already buying myself a Christmas present, not necessarily because I want to but because my PC really does suck.

Here it is:



I will probably never buy a PC again. I've just had enough. So Mac it is. I'm pretty freaking excited.

But the best part about Christmas is the fact that we'll get to spend an entire week with my family in Texas for the holiday. I am absolutely stoked. Bring on the humidity! Bring on the annoying family quirks! But really, bring on the love. I really miss my family.

Once you go Mac, you never go back! I converted when Mike and I moved in together, and I've never had a Mac I wasn't thrilled to death with. It's also great for your photography stuff.

My sis has a flip--its fun to play with. I have a gorilla pod--love it! and i have my amazing holga. if you get one, let me know if you find a good place to get the medium format film. its not the easiest thing to find and I developing takes forever.

the only bad thing about a mac? no right click! Argh! Other than that, macs rock!
