Neat discovery about my x500

I know, I know. I have been away.

I was playing around with my x500 today when I discovered that if you happen to half-press-press the shutter release while reviewing an image, the shutter releases. I have a picture of my leg to prove for it.

Hells yessssssssssssssssss.

This Post Contains No Nude Pictures of Celebrities Note to any reader directed here by a search engine: This post contains no nude photos of any celebrities, especially former Golden Girl, Betty White. Note Note: This post contains slightly explicit content described in the blandest of manners.  Take pause before reading aloud to your kindergarten class, like you do all my other posts.

Hi, I’m Denise…

Last week, I had to read about 160 pages of the MLA Style Manual for one of my classes. I checked at all the bookstores around campus and could not find any available copies. Desperate and confident that the internet held the key to my redemption, I went on a Google search.

If people won't allow information to be free, people like me will steal it. :)



Well, first week officially living in Athens. Which means. Which MEANS! NO INTERWEBZ.


My housemate said she’s gonna call the company really soon. I hope “really soon” means right now, because I’m going insane without internet. Plus, I have some backlogged posts on things I’ve crossed off my summer to-do list plus a bunch of other stuff too.

What did we do before internet? Lol.

Coney Island with the lovely Emilie

Even though I’ve made several trips to Coney Island beach, I’ve still never gone to any of the Coney Island theme parks. Yesterday, my friend Emilie and I decided to take a trip there to spend some time with each other and with our cameras.

This post is a bit of a photo-dump so feel free to navigate away.

As  usual, these pictures are taken with my GE Power Pro X500. I used color filters in some of them because, well, color filters are fun (Review of Kola Color Filters to follow.).

Birthday Wish #1

This post is part of a birthday wishlist series. This post is about the most unreasonable thing I want for my birthday.

Birthday wish #1 was an easy pick and this post is going to be short.

If I really could have anything for my birthday, I wish Doctor Flash could be around to celebrate my special day with me. This may sound cheesy, but this year is the second year that he and I won’t be spending our birthdays with each other. Birthdays are special days and should be spent with special people, and that boy, well, he’s extra special.

There’s really nothing more to say about that.

Birthday Wish #2

This post is part of a birthday wishlist series. This post is the third most unreasonable thing I want for my birthday.

I have invested the most amount of time thinking about this birthday wish. Not that it’s anything particularly important, in which case it would probably cease to be an “unreasonable” birthday wish. Nor is it, to be honest, anything too expensive. To me the only reason this birthday wish is unreasonable is the fact that I don’t need it but want it.

For my birthday, I’d like a bottle of Versace Bright Crystal.

You had me at "Bright."
