Yes, I CAN quit whining about it now

My Christmas present from my wife. Thank you!

umm... do you think you could have cleaned the mirror first?

Expect more pictures soon.

She bought you a dirty mirror?

Idaho Dad said...

We all know that's the mirror in the kids' bathroom. ;)

Mulled Vine said...

Idiot that I am, before seeing the caption, thought, "how the heck did he do that?"

Doh!

Charli said...

OH MY GOD!! After you saw the mirror you didn't bother to clean it and retake the picture - I think I may have to cash in on that insurance policy! WTH!!!

Gette said...

So amused!!! Of course, you will find the old camera now.

(word verification is chesti. Yes I am, but who's peeking?)

Jeff said...

People in the Sun - Yeah... kinky huh?

Idaho Dad - Uh... sure.

Mulled Vine - Actually, I did have to perform some trickery. Try it for yourself and see what happens. ;-)

Charli - Yeah but... I didn't notice the smudges until I was all comfy in my chair and had the picture on my computer already and, and, and... crap. How much was that policy for again?

Gette - If Murphy has anything to do with it I will for sure. If I do find it, I'll make sure to take a picture of it with this camera!

You must have been very, very good!

Incidentally ~
Charli, I didn't even notice the mirror! I just thought his jacket was dirty!

April said...

so what will you whine about now?

Jeff said...

teri - *I* thought my laptop screen was dirty! Yeah, I'm going with that.

April - Oh don't worry. I've got an actual list of things to whine about. Hey... that would make a good post! Not a great post, but a pretty good one. Or not.

Mom Thumb said...

Who notices the mirror? What is that . . . face on your T-shirt?

Jeff said...

mom thumb - That's one of my favorite T-shirts designed by my friend Dave, over at Blogography.com called "Zombies Ate My Brain." You've seen it before here. I can't believe you don't remember. Geez.

carlae said...

Cute looks good in blue. Does it do video too?

Bill said...

I put a postage sticker on my camera and that pays off when one is careless. Seems you left a camera in Hawaii when on a USO tour with the band too!

Jeff said...

carlae - Yes it does do video. Expect some of that too. And for the rest of you... you can thank Carlea when I do.

Bill - Ah... you forget that I did have my name/address/phone number inside the lid of the camera bag at that time. Seems the finder was not so inclined to tell me he found it. Go figure.

Elizabeth said...

Wow, nice present! Now you're going to have to go on vacation so you can use your camera!

unfinishedrambler said...

At least, couldn't we have seen your face, instead of a picture of your chest? Next time, I guess. :)

Michelle said...

Oooo, what a nice hot wife you have! And I love the manly blue color, too ;)

JD at I Do Things said...

I'm still laughing over People in the Sun's comment.

And Charli's comment.

Congrats on your new toy. I WANT ONE! (My whining has just begun.)

Maureen said...

Ooooh! I gots me a new camera too! A Sony Cybershot 10.1... which replaces my four year old Sony 4.3. I loves it.

At least being bloggers, we know we will get a lot of use out of these, eh?

Happy New Year to you and your family, Jeff!

Roger said...

Nice manicure. :)

Roger said...

Oh, and I wish my wife would give me a dirty mirror/camera combo. I would be the talk of the neighborhood, for sure!

Babs (Beetle) said...

There, now you can give your old one(once it turns up) to your daughter.

yellojkt said...

Nice camera. I got a new Canon A590 for Christmas because my old A540 broke.

annof thejunkdrawerblogfamily said...

1. What's that creature guy doing peeking through your jacket? Reminds me a little of Mr. Bill.
2. I never noticed the dirty mirror until you pointed it out.
3. I was admiring the color of the camera more than anything.
4. I agree with Charli.

Jeff said...

Elizabeth - What, again? I just took like 2 months off a few weeks ago.

unfinished rambler - Are you saying I don't show my goofy mug around here enough? Dude... my readers have limits.

Michelle - Well ya... when you put it that way. But shouldn't I be the one making the hot wife comments around here? ;-)

JD - Those crazy people in the sun. I hope they've been wearing their sunscreen.

Maureen - I absolutely use my camera a lot for blogging. I feel blogst without it.

Roger - You think they're nice, you should see my toenails. And be careful about the dirty mirror/camera combo. They only lead to dirty pictures.

Babs - How did you know? She's actually asked me the exact same thing. You're like psychic! Or is it psychotic? ;-)

yellojkt - I've seen your camera while you're lurking around in Manhattan taking pictures of Ainsley Earhardt. You're nearly almost barely famous you know.

ann - Oh great. Everybody agrees with Charli. Do you suppose it's too late to clean the stupid mirror now?

Mom Thumb said...

Okay, I thought it looked vaguely familiar, but I was thinking it looks kind of like a couple my daughter has. Nice.

VE said...

Hey, nice camera. Santa was very good to you. I see you have a local jacket on. Columbia Sportswear is just down the street from me.

Oh...and...here's my standard year end message...not like it applies to you though...you were at the top all year...

You are about to be removed from my blog roll!!! It’s nothing personal…I’m restarting for 2009 this Thursday. Were you at the top of the list in 2008? If not, here’s your chance to be. A single comment gets you on my blog roll. Keep commenting and you’ll stay at the top. Hope to see you in 2009!
