Camera

Writer's Block: Gadget Conundrum

You're going on your dream vacation and you can only take one gadget with you. Camera, music player, cell phone, laptop or something else – what do you bring and why? Which other ones would you miss most?

I'd probably take my Panasonic bridge camera.  It's got a very versatile lens (28 to 504mm) and an 8 Gig memory card, so I wouldn't need a huge bag of accessories to take great photos.  I'd probably go crazy taking pictures of everything.  And then when I got home, I'd upload them all to LiveJournal and spam everyone's friends page.  :)

Bugs

I didn't realize just how important that bug zapper is.  The bulbs are failing, causing the thing to arc and flicker and generally sound not good, so I unplugged it.

It's been off for about three days and the place is absolutely swarming with bugs.  I just sprayed myself with Off and tried to go outside, then I probably looked like an insane man trying to swat at all the bugs that were all over me.  I just wanted to spend the evening on the front steps, listening to some music and playing with the goatlets, but the bugs sure put the kibosh on that real quick.

I managed to dig up one spare bulb from the old bug zapper, and there should be another, but I can't find it, so I guess I have to go out tomorrow and buy another.  This zapper takes two bulbs and both appear to be failing/failed.
