I was so excited. I’ve got some lovely drawings of otters and tiki gods to share, and some great sewing/salvaging inspirations. Even my cats are feeling photogenic today.
Seizing my camera in a burst of productiveness, I press the power button. The Zoomy Tube in the Front springs into action! Then retreats. I coerce it. Again, only a couple seconds of life. Dead batteries. Again.
Given the frequency of this occurrence, can you guess how many AA batteries I have lying around? That’s right. Big ol’ zero. I’m reluctant to pirate a couple from my husband’s games n’ gadgetry, as I tend to forget to replace them. He doesn’t like little surprises like that. Can’t say I blame him.
I plan to get a new camera soon. One that isn’t an energy vampire. But for now, batteries.
In the meantime, enjoy this San Diego ComicCon vacation classic:
