yesterday night i discovered that the glass on my lens filter is totally cracked. what’s weird is i have NO idea how it happened. and since it doesn’t seem to be screwed in properly, i can’t get it off either. sigh. i guess that means a field trip to henry’s!

I am a girl. I like technology. It’s frustrating when companies think that all they need to do to make a product appealing to a woman is paint it pink. There’s way more to it than that. It’s nice to read about some companies that seem to finally be getting it. One of my favourite […]
