First of all, I want to thank everyone for the comments on yesterday's post. Yes, I do blog for me (mostly) but it's always nice to have some reassurance that people are reading. As my pastor would say, I just had a case of the mully grubs.
I say I blog mostly for me, because the truth is, I blog for readers. For you. If I were blogging just for me, well, I have an almost frightening collection of journals that need to be used up.
Sue on FB likened blogging to those long letters we used to write before the internet came along. We wrote what was interesting, and hoped the reader didn't get too bored. Back when I first started blogging, I imagined myself sitting down with a couple of friends over a cup of coffee (which I didn't even drink back then) and asking each other how our days went. What I wrote was what I'd chat about, if I were conversing with a friend in person. Maybe if I got back to that imagery, it would help me blog.
Now, before I get to my debate of the day, I want to tell you what happened at work. Vanessa had gone to the bathroom, when The Other Rod (not to be confused with Former Group Leader Rod) came over to my stand and said that she wanted me in the front break room.
"Are you serious?" I asked. He assured me that he was serious, so I went up to the front break room, thinking something was wrong. Vanessa wasn't up there, so I came on back to my stand. When I got back, I discovered that he'd taken a tie wrap and tied our brazing tips together.
Vanessa seemed genuinely angry about it, and I was trying to act angry, but secretly, I thought it was funny. I was trying to look mad whilst stifling my laughter at the same time. I didn't completely succeed.
Just between you and me, The Other Rod has some of the sexiest lips I've ever seen in my entire life. One of these days, I really need to get a picture of him and post it for you. Which segues nicely into today's debate...
As you may know, my trusty point and shoot camera gave up the ghost a few weeks ago. What you may not know is that I'm going to be able to upgrade my phone on August 7. Now, the question is, do I want to get myself a new P&S, or just get a phone with a really good camera? What is the best camera phone out there? What would be the advantages of having a P&S camera as opposed to a phone camera? What have been your experiences with phone cameras? I mean for quality photos, rather than just snapshots.
Keep in mind that I still have my DSLR, so this would not be my only camera. I just want something smaller for times when I don't want to lug that big ol' thing around.
And now for a bit of good news. It has been raining for nearly 4 hours now! Woo hoo!
