i just want my f'n camera.

i can't even begin to tell you the amount of hell i have gone through to buy my fucking camera (apparently i can begin to tell you..). first i ordered a camera online before i realized that it came with none of the camera accessories. just the body. the end. i called quickly and cancelled the order. then i researched online stores for what feels like forever because they all scare me. then i found an ad on craigslist for a store in so cal- after about a billion emails to them, i finally agreed to buy the camera from them. good thing i did payment through paypal (their resolution dispute rocks). they were a total scam and it all worked out in regards to me getting my money back, but fuck... still no camera.

so FINALLY... FINALLY i have placed a real order for my canon rebel xti AND a 50mm lens (to start). well i placed the order over a week ago, but i was too scared to talk about it. so i'm just warning you now. there will be pictures of pictures as soon as i get this thing. i'm going to take the stupidest pictures because i won't be able to stop myself. i will have no control over what i deem as "picture-worthy" once this thing finally arrives.

so now i'm just sitting here.. waiting oh so NOT patiently for it to get here. why is it taking so long!??! i should have done expedited shipping. UGH. if it arrives broken or something, i'll just die.

Wow, I can't believe there wasn't an actual store near you with a decent price.

Hope this works out for you.
