Nikon D5

(Nikon D4S)

Well, I somehow just deleted an entire post from yesterday. I used Command-Z one too many times and then it wouldn't let me redo the undo-typing, which was complete in its undoing. The whole page just disappeared and as far as I can tell there's no way to go back to the last saved version. It just seemed to auto-save the blank page and that was that.

Ah well, what can one do.  There were some funny lines in it, I thought.

I went to see a dermatologist. He told me that I don't have Actinic Keratosis or Squamous Cell Carcinoma. I have nothing to worry about, yet. He told me to use a special cream and it would help. The nurse that I had to take my shirt off in front of was very cute. I felt bad for her. Dark hair, dark eyes, dark complexion, very composed. She calmed me just by me looking at her. I wanted to watch movies in bed with her. I should have asked. She was delicious.

So much for self-diagnosis.

Today, I go to some friends kids' birthday party, two of them. Rebounderz in Rohnert Park. Rhys loves it. He'll be quite happy there. It is right next to the Target so maybe I can go pick up a few more things I need, if I can convince Rachel to permit it. I guess I could drive separately, but the boy seems to like it when we all do stuff together. Who wouldn't, really?

I am not feeling very well. I have been taking everything that I can get my hands on: Oxycontin, Xanax, Aspirin, Aleve, Alka-Sletzer, Cialis, all of it. I guess you don't capitalize aspirin. The pain persists and now there is also a swelling in my groin region. That Oxycontin stuff has a very high abuse potential. Good thing I don't have much more of it.

Man, I want a new camera. All of the ones that I would want are super expensive though. The Nikon D5 will be around $7000, I bet, but it is what I want. Either that or maybe one of the Sony Alpha series cameras with a Zeiss 85mm f1.4 and a Zeiss 35mm f1.4. Those would be all that I need, for now. That would also be around $6000. There is no winning, there is only spending.

I don't need a new camera, of course. I have several. But that is how the hobby is. There are always more things to want. Now that I am not going to die from skin cancer I must find something to fill up all the free time that I'll have. I guess I can resume making my travel plans.
