Missing an Appendage (a.k.a. My Camera)

*Insert sad face*

Not to be confused with *distraught face*
(Sorry, I can't help myself. I find me endlessly hilarious. I realize I'm the only one that does. Don't care. Besides, PhotoBooth is freakin' AWESOME. The end.)

OK, back to the point of this post. Ahem. 


Which is why I'm both sad and, yes, a bit distraught. I've become incredibly attached to my lovely little D80, so being without it has caused me some serious identity crisis moments. "What am I going to do NOW?? How will I ever function again? Ever?! GAH!" Stuff like that.

There it is. My extra appendage in better times. You know, when it worked. Dusty with flour, crusty with dough, probably some paint on the back. *sigh*

I sent it away last week after trying unsuccessfully to get rid of the flashing "ERR" message on the display. I was pretty sure I knew what was wrong. I heard back from Nikon today and they confirmed it. The #%&#!@ pop up flash is broken. I DON'T EVEN USE IT. 

It's like not being able to drive your car because the CD player (THAT YOU NEVER USE BECAUSE IT'S 2012 AND YOU HAVE AN IPOD AND ITUNES) doesn't work. 

The good news is that it can be fixed and for much less than buying even a point and shoot. But still. I don't have my camera right now because something that I don't use is broken on it and I have to PAY to get the thing that I don't use fixed. 

Good times. First world problems, and all that. OK, I'm done now. 

I feel better. Like this:

Wait. That's manic, crazy-face.

SEE? I'm capable of not mugging constantly. 

Almost. (By the way, this is what I call the "Oh, GOLLY!" In case you were wondering.)


  1. GAH! I hope they get it back to you quickly. I dread the day I have to send mine away. I'm pretty sure I'll have to buy a point and shoot just to make it through.

    1. I hoping against hope that they can fix it and get it back to me QUICKLY. I had a dream this weekend that the UPS guy hand delivered it to me. :) I have an OLD P&S and, fortunately, have access to a DSLR from work. It's getting me by, but I miss MINE!!

  2. Oh, Kelly, you crack me up!! I love Photobooth, too, and all of your mugging. :) I hope your baby returns home safe and sound soon.

  3. I too find you endlessly funny! (Distraught and Oh Golly - classic!)
    Good luck with the waiting game!!

  4. You are freakin' hilarious! Thanks for bringing a smile to my face ~ oh, and I'm sure I have crusty bits on my camera in weird places. Hope your camera comes back quickly, shiny, and like new!

  5. You are a knuckle head! So funny! Yes, but have you ever licked icing off your camera?
    Hope you get him or her back soon!

  6. Laughing sooo hard!! I can totally relate!!
