'Yer Captain's in Love...

Friday, September 12, 2008
And we’ve never even met. No, ‘tis not a new romance full of passionate, toe curling sex. I should be so lucky. No, I’m in love with THIS. And I’ve never even tried it. In fact, I hadn’t even heard about this gorgeous little fellow until yesterday. Thanks to my matchmaker, Jody the Non-Blogger, I have a new infatuation. He’s adorable, fits in the palm of your hand, comes with his own batteries and guarantees a full hour of fun! Not to mention the fashionable covers! His name is Ultra…and he makes me Flip.

I have considered putting this on my Christmas wish list in case anyone in my family feels the urge to splash out on me this year (cough cough…hint hint…). One of the great things (and there aren’t many) about being born just a few weeks after the holly jolly holiday is that folks tend to lump your both gifts together (should they choose to get you one). That’s what happened with my Tom Jones tickets last year. Combo birthday/Christams prezzie from Big Brother and wifey.

I know there are probably higher quality, slightly more expensive cameras out there but for what I’d be using it for (don’t be dirty!), I think it will be just fine. And it should be something simple to use in case I have a fit of madness and let the Admiral get her mitts on it. Point, shoot, stop. Anything more complicated and she could be in trouble. I’m looking at using it if I’m out and about the city, at family get-togethers, horrific attempts at recreating recipes, and when I eventually take my much longed for vacation. Yes, I think Mr. Ultra will do just fine.

While it would be rude of me to come right out and ask for it, I should let you all know that if someone, anyone, decided they just HAD to get one for me, I wouldn’t complain. Not even if they made a mistake and got the pink version instead of the green…

LOL - at first I think it was a "personal assistant" but then realized it had a USB onit - unless, unless these things are getting interactive.......??? Wow, that could be a real trip! Just kidding.

Even though I have a perfectly good DV camcorder, I too love the Flip and have been seriously tempted. Especially for gig-going, since it's so discreet. Good call, you.

SP: You bet I did. I love everything about it!!!! One of the cameras can also be used underwater. Heaven.

Milla: I think I'm going to have to pass the word to my stepmother. She works at Walmart (which carries the Flip) and gets a discount. Ah, there IS a Santa Claus.

Heather: I knew you'd like it!

Gardenia: You saucy girl! "Personal assistant" indeed!

*(Asterisk): Jody the Non-Blogger will be so impressed that everyone wants one! This would be perfect for gig-going. Really doesn't seem much bigger than a lot of cell/mobile phones out there so who's going to say anything.
