A Great Day with a Giveaway

Today turned out to be a pretty good day thanks to Scott Bourne who if you are not aware is a professional photographer who is responsible for and is also a guest at times on the Macbreak weekly podcast. Scott often does photography related giveaways to people who follow him on Twitter. Today was my lucky day. I received a $100 dollar gift certificate for Lens Coat who make protective neoprene sleeves and cases for photography equipment. This is perfect timing, as I was able to use this to place an order of a cover for my new Canon 70-200 2.8L IS lens.

I also placed a lens on reserve today for me to use at Dragon*Con. Hofmann asked me to help with the Rebel Legion picture, and I have wanted to try out a nice wide angle lens, so I reserved a Tokina 11-16 2.8 from They are located in Memphis, so thanks to Chase, I won’t have to pay any shipping as he is going to pick it up for me when he gets the lens that he is renting for the con.

On Saturday I am finally going to make it to a Nashville Roller Derby bout. I have wanted to go to one since the event in Indiana, and but I have not been able to make it work with my schedule. I hope that I can get some decent pictures to give to a couple of my friends who are referees.

The Wii hunt and Twitter

I had a fun weekend. and I were at Best Buy on Saturday and learned that they had 21 Wii in the store, but could not sell them until Sunday. Jess decided that she was going to get one, so I said that I would go to the store and wait with her the next morning. We got there at 8:30 and the store opened at 11, but we were the first in line. I became the line coordinator assigning numbers to people as they came to wait. It was a pleasant line experience, and I think I found a way to make money in the future. Go to stores on big release days and manage the line for a gift card. I could see many store managers that would probably go for something like that, as they wouldn’t have to use their staff for it. We go the Wii setup and played for quite a while. I was able to borrow Rayman Raving Rabbids from a friend for her to try out, and I believe that she has decided to buy a copy.

In other news, I made a twitter account today. You can find it at
