At My Desk With Coffee #6

1.) This evening, while waiting to make a left hand turn onto Doheny from Santa Monica Blvd., I adjusted the volume on the radio and two speakers that I never knew I had kicked in. Suddenly The Supremes were asking me "Where Did Our Love Go?' from the back of my head. I've had this car for a year and a half and never knew I had four speakers. What else don't I know?
2.) Why, yes, that is a new camera. Its a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1 with a Leica lens. Many, many other features but maybe the best is the stablization device. Thank you for noticing.
3.) An hour ago I turned on the wrong burner on the stove and nearly burned the house down.
4.) Putting glasses on William Holden in "Born Yesterday" to make him look brainy: Not convincing.
5.) I hope to watch not one single second of the Olympics. By the way, I've never seen one single second of "American Idol", any "Survivor" show, or "Lost". I hear that "Arrested Development", "24" and "The Sopranos" are good but I've never seen one single second of them either. Hmmm, this might be the beginning of a whole new category.
6.) I've never spent one single second scuba diving or mountain climbing. And I probably never will.

I wondered which model you got.
LX1 is great! Good choice.
I look forward to see more and more of your great pictures.
Having a super camera sure feels great. ^_^

Thanks, Sarina.

I wouldn't have a blog or be taking pictures without your example.

#3: I'm glad you did not burn down the house. More importantly, what were you cooking?
#4: You're so right about the glasses on William Holden... but there are so many other good costuming things about 'Born Yesterday'- like Broderick Crawford trying to look sophisticated in a silk dressing gown. He is the very definiton of a sow's ear. And Judy Holliday's lounging pajamas tell the viewer exactly what time and place we're in... even though it's in black and white, she's full of color. (I love her singing 'I Can't Give You Anything But Love' while she's kicking his ass at gin rummy. She's sexy, smart, ditsy and heroic all at once.)

Arrested Development: the only television show worth watching. the only one I've bothered with, anyway.

ah, we use the same camera. i am a relatively recent convert to lumix, having mostly used nikon before. i recently added a lumix TZ1 to my little...stable of lumi? because of the 10x zoom. haven't really tested it out yet, though.
