For The Birds

I dropped the new camera today. As I was walking back inside from taking some bird photos (like the one to the left), I wasn’t paying attention to what I was doing and I dropped the new PowerShot camera. I almost got sick.

The camera itself is a bit “warped” on the bottom left edge of the lens housing, but the camera still operates normally and is still taking excellent photos. It’s more of a cosmetic boo-boo than a performance issue, which is good, because I really don’t have the money to get it fixed right now. I can’t believe we’ve only had it two weeks and I already dropped it. I’ve learned my lesson though, and will keep the strap around my wrist when carrying it, if it’s not inside it’s case.

I spent a lot of time today researching the job scene, and putting my resume in front of more eyeballs. I spend three days a week submitting for new jobs and two days following up with the places I have submitted my resume. I didn’t get any more bites today, but then I didn’t expect too, since Thursday and Friday seem to be the most active days for nibbles from recruiters.

When we cleaned over the weekend, we gathered a bunch of stuff to donate to Goodwill. We do this three or four times a year, and we ended up taking about two dozen grocery bags of toys, clothes, lamps, and other miscellaneous stuff to the nice people over at the Goodwill store. It’s nice to know, especially in this economy, that those things won’t be going to waste.

I have an appointment tomorrow afternoon with a recruiter, so wish me luck. If I get my face in front of enough people, someone will get tired of looking at me and find me a job. That’s it for tonight. If you haven’t checked out my photoblog yet, then you’re missing out on good photos (like an outrageous gas price I saw today).
