rain, a fuzzy bumblebee, a poll, and "majorly"

It finally rained today. After the thunder and lightning stopped, everything glowed with an eerie light. The whole world looked green, even the air.

And then the sun set and everything just looked dark.
End Thought Process One.

Behold the bumblebee. Notice its fuzzy cuddliness, and it's tiny little wings. Isn't it cute? Don't be silly, it's a bumblebee. No one hugs a bumblebee. Except me. One day!!
Anyway, we don't have fuzzy bumblebees where I live, and so this is a novelty to me.

In other news, I've been really gadget-y lately. I'm looking into getting a new camera (a nice one) so I can get pictures with the focus on the subject and not random water bottles. So far, I'm struggling between a Nikon D40 and a D60. (How does one pronounce "Nikon"? Does the "Ni" part rhyme with "eye" or "knee"? This is a very important matter [I'm trying to win an argument], so consider this an official poll.) Anyway, so that's a want. Today, I got my ThinkGeek package in, containing a mini stereo, complete with bass vacuum.

I don't know what that means.

But whatever, it works nicely. Also, majorly is not technically a word.

nai-kon, nik-on or nee-kon? I use the first, but a lot of photog videos refer to the second.

I vote nai-kon, but I'm not a photog so, yknow, it might be the second.

It's Nai-kon, I believe. That's how everybody I know pronounces it. Rhyming with "eye". :P

Does that help?

So far that's three votes for me! :D

It's Nai- (rhymes with 'eye') kon.

I would recommend the D40, as it's what I have, but it seems you have already went with a Canon. :D

who i am!

Tiph used to be this weird hippie chick who sewed things and drank tea and rode bikes and wrote silly things. Then, college came along, and now she's this weird hippie chick with math in her brain and notebooks full of indefinite integrals. And hardly any time to write. This is her space. Thankfully, space is a vacuum and any complaints you may have cannot be heard.
