N900 camera vs N82 camera

Tuesday, December 08, 2009 @ 01:55pm

i’m still trying to get used to my new phone/OS/etc. but i thought i’d try out the camera. the camera on the N82 was the main reason i loved the phone so much, but i’ve had it for over a year and a half which is longer than normal. “out with the old…” as they say. the top photo was taken with the N900; the bottom was taken with the N82.

just testing this out...

the N900 really falls short as far as the camera is concerned… hoping the rest of the phone makes up for it.

(well, i will soon…)

this morning, temptation got the best of me and i hit BIN on a lindsey american girl doll.  i’ve been wanting one for a while, watching ebay, but it was always more than i was willing to pay.  this morning i found one in new condition (hair looks great, too), in her complete meet outfit (including the elusive red barette), for as good a price as i think i will ever find.  EXCITING!!

“sew what?” saturday: dodgers uniform

Saturday, November 21, 2009 @ 09:25am

i made the cap, top, and pants. the ball, glove, and bat are “borrowed” from a retired AG outfit. the cap didn’t quite turn out as i had hoped, but i can live with it.

too bad we already have the (old) instruments. i would LOVE to have george’s guitar.

(although, shouldn’t it come out on 09/10 – you know, “one after 909”?? i guess they prefer “revolution 9”. ;) )

new toys!

Sunday, April 19, 2009 @ 08:31pm

so, while i was here at home splitting my time between throwing up :-& and trying to sleep off my pounding headache, jon ran some errands with the kids, and then came home with these for me:

my new toys

i’d been wanting damaged king for a while now but didn’t want to pay inflated prices at frank & sons. the other one, marco, jarron picked out for me and told jon i wanted (which i really did). :x

cars diecasts i wish mattel would make (or maybe they already have and i’m just completely clueless :-?? ):

  • ghostlight mater… there’s a ghostlight ramone – why isn’t there a ghostlight mater?? i imagine him with a frightened expression and of course the blue lantern hanging from his tow hook
  • damaged fabulous hudson hornet… like on the newspaper picture. :(
  • chick hicks fans mia & tia… they seem to have made every other mia & tia… except maybe for “car-hop” mia & tia, which i wouldn’t mind either.
  • dirt track doc hudson… or is there such a thing already? with dirt on the bottom and on the tires like the dirt track mcqueen has?

llama! emily as chrissa
somehow, i imagined the chrissa doll with the original face-mold, and not the josefina face-mold, so i’ve got emily playing chrissa here… LOVE the llama.
