Meet my new baby!
Today has been just a fun day of spending money. At work, they let me go to Wolf Camera and get a new Pro Digital SLR outfit. I got a Nikon D70s with a SB800 TTL flash and 28-105mm lens. It's pretty sweet. I've been playing with it tonight, but I get to really try it out tomorrow at the Offshore Technology Conference. I can't wait.
Then tonight I finally splurged and made the purchase I've wanted to make since 8th grade. I bought a Takamine acoustic/electric guitar. I was torn between the Tak and a Martin, but I just couldn't see spending another $800 for the Martin when it had a veneer top. I mean, it sounded great, but it wasn't quite a "true" Martin. It was the budget Martin. (Budget at $1500 -- the high-end Martins are WAY out of my league.) Anyway, I'm all set with my new jumbo acoustic/electric. Just pray there's no rain on Sunday, so my gig at The Boat will go off without a hitch.
That's pretty much all my news. OTC tomorrow. Design work Thursday and Friday. Then Monday I'm off to California again for another big meeting.
