Well, for those of you who don't know already...................my camera died.
Yes, that is correct. It is a sad day here. Actually, it has been a sad several days.
I picked up my camera to take a pic, and the shutter was making a ticking noise! Gasp! I took it straight to the doctor (wolf camera) and he examined it, disected it, assesed the situation, and looked at me and said, "the shutter is broken". I said "what do you mean" He said (in a very male voice) "the shutter is the main mechanism that allows the camera to take a picture"
So, I said (in my nearly emotional voice) "i know what the shutter does" "how long will it take to send it off and fix it" he said "oh,no, it can't be fixed" WHAT?!WHAT?! he said "Sony bought out Minolta over a year ago, and there are no longer repairs for Minolta" so I said (after I took care of the lump in my throat "so, then what do I do" and he gently handed me my camera back ( I think he could tell) and he said "it's over".
WALK AWAY, DON'T CRY, WALK AWAY, DON'T CRY!
I just took the camera, and walk out, almost in a fog. The boys looked at me, in shock, thinking, what will she do?! They were quite for the rest of the ride. They knew it was serious.
So, needless to say, I have been without a camera for 5 days now.

So, pardon me, if you talk to me and I seem a little disconnected. It's because I literally feel like I have lost a part of my being.
Is that sad, or normal?
