A New Toy


I love getting new toys. Really, I’m just like a little kid when it comes to gadgets. Did I want jewelry or flowers for Mother’s Day? No. I wanted a little pocket video recorder. So, here’s the one that I picked out for myself:

I really like it…although I haven’t gotten a bunch of time to play with it. Chloe’s last day of school is tomorrow, and they’re having a little concert. I plan on recording the concert, and posting it here. Here are a couple of sample videos I did. These are NOT in high def, just in regular VGA mode. I’ll play with the high def more later.

This thing is great! It uses 2 AA rechargable batteries (which came with it…it actually came with four) and fits right in the palm of my hand. Great for throwing in my purse. It takes still pictures, too. I’m going to have fun playing with this…and I’ll be able to share some more video of the kids with my folks. Right now we have a camcorder that records on those mini dvd’s, and it’s a pain in the arse to share them with my folks.

So, I got a new toy to play with, and today I’m going to get some new hair! Well, not NEW hair, but a new cut and color. If you live around Pittsburgh, I absolutely LOVE how Jess does my hair. Jess owns Hot Heads Hair Design, which is right next to Downey’s House in Robinson Township. She’s super sweet, a whiz with color, and she took a big risk opening a place of her own. she’s great!

So maybe I’ll post a pic of me and my new hair. I hope everybody has a great day! The weather is fantastic here. Maybe I’ll slap some fake tan on myself soon, so I don’t scare everybody when I wear shorts!

    Toys rule. I know that for a fact. All I buy are toys but pretend that they are tools.

    Yep, I got a new toy for Mother’s Day too. I agree that I love my camcorder but what I have now is even better. Good luck with it!
