Sunday Stealing: The Q & A Meme

Cheers to all us thieves!

Sunday Stealing: The Q & A Meme

1. where is your significant other? As in right this moment? He's upstairs on his computer.

2. your favorite thing? this is quite the question... I have many favorite things, but which is the right answer? The most logical would be the demons, but most days they aren't my favorite things because... well... they are teenagers. I could say all my critters and that would probably most logical, but there again... are they a 'thing'? Peanut Butter Cups are my favorite candy... I have a certain chair that is my favorite... I have a pillow that is my favorite... I think you need to be just a tad more specific on this one.

3. your dream last night? I was shopping at Hot Topic for clothes for myself, which I wouldn't wear now being an old lady, but when I took the demons in there last week it was like walking back into time - those were the clothes that I wore as a teenager!

4. your goal? There you go again with a question that is so open ended. My goal for today is to get laundry done and not eat the entire box of doughnuts that I bought yesterday. Oh... and I'd like to wear a bikini this summer without everyone laughing at me.

5. your hobby? typing on this keyboard.

6. where do you want to be in 6 years? Still alive, for one. Lets see, in 6 years I will no longer have kids in school (hopefully college though) so in 6 years I want to be able to get up with the husband and get in the semi with him without worrying about who is going to get the demons up for school.

7. where were you last night? In my living room watching a movie with the husband and demons. Then I went to bed. Exciting, huh? (well.. the bed part was a little exciting....)

8. what you're not? WTF? What I'm not? I'm not a boy. I'm not single. I'm not a rap music lover. I'm not a teenager. I'm not a beer drinker. I'm not the brightest bulb on the tree. I'm not a serial killer. I'm not an althetic person. I'm not a radio DJ. I'm not a mother of 4 kids. I'm not a grandma. I'm not a prostitute. I'm not.... what else do you want to know that I'm not?

9. one of your wish list items? a Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM Super Telephoto Lens. This baby is just over $10grand. But I just about orgasm every time in see one. I just wanna touch one.... just take one picture with it.

10. your pet? We talking my critters here? Saki, Chico, Big Boy, Oliver, Serena Rosabella, Jake and a bunch of fish.

11. missing someone? Yep

12. your car? 1996 Mercury Sable and I LIKE IT DAMMIT!!! I wish people would stop telling me to junk it. It's not dead yet!

13. something you're not wearing? Whats with the "not" crap? I'm not wearing fishnet stockings and a black leather negligee.

14. love someone? No. I hate everyone. Every single one of you.

15. when is the last time you laughed? When I read #14.

16. last time you cried? I'm about to... but seriously? I don't know, one last last week or something.

17. favorite past time? Blogging, believe it or not.

18. are you a hater or a lover? I just said I hate everyone, aren't you paying attention?

19. any vices?I think the husband has a few out in the garage - do you have something you'ld like me to put in it?

20. favorite meme other than Sunday Stealing? Thursday Thunks, of course!

Oh...I know what you mean about teenagers! Glad mine are out of that stage now, but at the time...I wasn't sure all 3 of us would survive it!

You are really such a nut, no wonder you and Kimber get along so well!!!

Yeah, the lens is orgasmic, but not exactly practical. A better idea (for 2/3 the money -- Canon's MSRP was almost $12k on this gem... yikes! Adorama lists it for $10,600)?

Get the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8 L IS USM for $6800, and then spend another $290 to add on the Canon Extender EF 2x II for those times when you really really gotta gotta have an 800mm. The 400 f/2.8 is a helluva lot faster and will probably handle most of what you'd use a supertelephoto for. And when you add the 2x extender, even though it costs you 2 stops, you're still getting f/5.6. Or you can split the difference and get the 1.4x extender which would give you a 560mm f/4.0 (the 1.4x only costs you one stop). Or heck, get 'em both and build a full range of supertelephotos for a little over $7 grand.

Of course, you could go for the 600mm f/4.0 and the 1.4x and still stay at f/5.6 -- at 840mm -- and still be under $8000. (The 600 f/4.0 lists for around $7300 so even if you added on both extender)

Easy for me to say, right? Heh. Best I can pull out of the bag is the 200mm f/2.8L (and the 1.4x extender). But someday...
