Thru the lens of a camera...

I need to buy a camera. I hate not having one. Mine was left in Cabo this summer and it’s felt like such a void in my life ever since. Like with the Bowie Ball. I had to troll flickr to find ONE picture of us at the event. And no one likes how they look in it. Maybe I will buy a cam before Friday. We’re doing another goth night out with a pre-party at Morgan’s tv studio. I need pics of this event!!

Last night I had drinks/pizza with my friend Jenny at Riposa 72, the wine bar beneath my apartment. I hadn’t seen her in forever, so it was good to catch up. Then Liz and Leanna and I went to Magnolia’s Bakery. They opened one at 69th and Columbus – yay! Now I have two terrific cupcake shops within a block radius. I <3 NY!

Tonight I’m meeting up with a long lost high school friend named April for dinner. So looking forward to seeing her. It’s fun catching up with people from my past. Got to love technologies like MySpace that can bring people together.

I’m really sad that Heath Ledger died. It’s not like I knew him personally or anything, but I thought he was a great actor and seemed like a good person. I remember him reading how him and his ex-finace Michelle Williams were living like normal people in Brooklyn and not caught up in the Hollywood hype. And it’s so sad that their daughter will grow up without a father. I hope it turns out that it was accidental and not a purposeful OD. That would just be too sad. And, um, this is just upsetting! I hope it’s a joke, but I don’t think so.

Its amazing how cruel and insensitive people can be! I've had to endure co-workers making bad Brokeback Mountain jokes this morning about his death.

I really REALLY hope that's a joke, tacky as it may be, but I think not.

RE: Cameras: If you're going for a small, non SLR Digital, I recommend canon over every other brand. I bought a fujifilm for my latest after the canon I loved and used all through australia died, because I wasn't happy with the canon's ability to do low-lit interior shots and the fujifilm was apparently great at that -- NOT. And the colors aren't as good as the canon at all. I've been disappointed. Canon, baby.
