I love this camera!!!! I have spent countless hours reading the manual as this is my first SLR. I have yet to find a good application for the movie mode, but I just got a tripod, so I might start those fun times soon! I decided to start an album in the photgraphy section here to post my favorite shots. Let me know what you guys think? heres the link:

Oh and I would bet on rachel getting her rings before I get my wheels. I am dealing with complete Morons. I sent a formal complaint yesterday to Town fair, so hopefully that will motivate that MOFO.

5:15am rolls around and I head off for work. Get on the highway, andthe car shakes like nothing else. The steering wheel, seats, shifter, me. Everything is vibrating horribly. Take it to my local BMW specialty shop (3D autoworks) and they tell me the tire people sent me the wrong hub-centric rings. So new rims come off, have to go back home and get my snow-tires. They go back on.
Had to take my old car (tiburon) back because the kid who bought it couldn't afford the payment plan we settled on. Fabulous. Now I have a car that I have to sell... again. Oh, and he super-curbed up the Volk GT-7's that I had on the car, so I'll have to get those re-finished. That one, however, is pure Rachel-stupidity. No one else is at fault.
Saturday morning rolls around, supposed to have a detailing appt at 8:00am. Drive down the Lowell Connector doing 56 in a 55. Go over the hill and get radared. Apparently, it changes to 35mph. Get a $210 ticket.
Get to the detailer, he asks, "Why are you here, you have an appt on the 28th" I point out it's the 28th.... He then proceeds to tell me he'll pick up my car Monday and do the detailing...
I finally get home, after much anguish and tears (cuz I'm a girl), take a very long shower. Andy shows up for the clam-run planning, and finally my weekend starts looking up. How can you go wrong with fried clams?

So you didn't have fun with us friday night?

OK, so I got my wheels back and im 66% satisfied. One of the wheels was poorly taped and has a bad paintjob. I went to put on my new bmw center caps, well Dan sent me four roundels instead of caps, LOL. Does it ever end?

I'm going to need two. One for the trunk and one for the hood.

Man that sucks! Are you putting them on or going to try to get the poor refinishing resolved? I could almost see the poor paint job being worse than the scratches.

Yeah I am going to go back and get it in writing that he owes me a re-finish cause I am not giving my wheels back to that jackass anytime soon!
