101 in 1001 #14 AND #76

Yes, I've had a HIGHLY productive day today - I crossed two things off my Day Zero list. The first was one I've been wanting to do for aaaaaaaaaaages. I bought this:

Hello, lover. It's a Nikon 50mm f1.8 G series lens, and it's so many kinds of shiny that it's not even funny. Here's what I got in a five minute walk around the front garden to test it out:

Like I said, shiny. (Bonus geek points if you know what that refers to) Oh, shallow depth of field. Where have you been all my life? I can't wait to have a proper play around with it in the US next week OH MY GOD I LEAVE FOR THE US NEXT WEEK ARGH ARGH AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!!!!!!!

Ahem. The other thing I accomplished involved less spending of money that I don't have and more sitting on my arse for days at a time. The benefit to unemployment, of course, is that I had more than enough time to do so. After several days of yelling "REDUCTOOOOOOOO!!" at the TV like a lunatic totally normal person, today I FINALLY achieved 100% on Lego Harry Potter (Years 1-4). Hurrah!!

Don't believe me? Here's the proof:

*heaves a sigh of relief* I think I might hold off on Lego Pirates of the Caribbean (which I bought C for his birthday) until after I get home at the end of September........... ;)

How was your Friday? :)

  1. Shiny - I love Firefly :)

    I would like a good camera, but maybe next year, for now it's iPhone photos!

    I played LHP with my nephew..5 year old's are aggressive games.

  2. I am still battling to get to 100% on Lego Harry Potter! It's an awesome game though. I'm tempted by Pirates of the Caribbean, but I ended up buying Kirby's Epic Yarn instead, so I'll have to wait a while for LPofC!

  3. Your geekiness makes me smile so much.

  4. SIGH, I am so jealous of your unemployment. My absence from the interwebs is extremely depressing to me, but I just can't bring myself to go online after a two hour commute. BLARGH I HATE BEING AN ADULT BLLLAAARGHHHH!!!

  5. hey, where you bought your 50mm? I had the previous one but I gave it away to my sister for her bday. And now I want to buy the f/1.8G. I think I might get it from Adorama.

    You're playing HP Lego? I was thinking yesterday that I haven't finished it yet, I'm in the middle of year 4. Maybe tomorrow I'll finish it, I think of staying at home sick haha.


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
