At the beginning of the month I plugged my camera battery in overnight so it could charge. When I woke up it still wasn't charged. It's one of those rectangle lithium ion batteries and apparently it finally ran out of juice. It lasted a year so that's pretty good, but when I bought a camera I hadn't planned on having to buy a new battery every year. It was really surprising when I looked on line and found they cost about 50 bucks.
Amazingly, I happened to find a check for $50 in my wallet that I got a few weeks ago for babysitting. I had forgotten to deposit it so as it turned out, I had an extra $50. I finally went to circuit city and bought a new battery. Now I can start taking pictures again, and therefore have more to blog about.
I got stung by a bee today while my friend Jenny and I were hiking in the mountains. To my knowledge I have only been stung one other time in my life. It was kind of exciting to celebrate my 2nd bee sting, and buying a new camera battery in the same day. I felt bad for the bee--isn't it true that if they sting you they die? He was just sitting on my shirt collar and when I lifted my hand to rub my neck I must of landed right on his stinger. It could have all been avoided if he would have just landed somewhere I could see him. I guess I don't feel too bad because they really bug me when they crowd me while I'm trying to eat my lunch.
