you mean it's not waterproof?

So I dropped my digital camera into the sea on Friday. Don't look at me like that; it slipped off my shoulder while I was dipping my toes in and it barely touched the water. Or so I thought. Now my camera thinks the lens cap is still attached when it's not, and the display screen now has a funky diagonal scrolling effect, making picture taking a bit of a challenge. The USB cable has also ceased to work and there are little bits of sand wedged in the microphone. On the plus side, the pictures on my memory stick are still intact. Yay.

This is annoying because I have some baby visiting to do this evening and I wanted to take lots of pictures. I am being forced to use my older digital camera, which is most uncool. It's only got 1.3 megapixels, for goodness sake! It's like having a mobile phone without a colour screen, 5 channels on TV, and a dial up connection. Hmph.

Did I mention that we're baby visiting tonight? Cannot wait to see Jack and Heather's wee one. Since no one's baby has managed to barf on me yet, I'm betting that tonight may be my lucky night. (And here I am wearing black.)
