Wow, the weekend seemed really short. It's been really rainy weather, so I didn't get out much.

Today I took some photos of things I'm going to be auctioning on Ebay. I got one item listed, but I still have two more things to put on there.

I'm selling one of my film cameras. I have mixed emotions about it. It's my always faithful Canon EOS 630. I really love that camera, but I haven't really used it that much at all since I purchased the EOS 10D last summer. I thought I'd be using them both, but I'm finding I use the G2 a lot more than the EOS 630 as well. For casual use, it's more sensible.

I think one of the main reasons I'm getting rid of it, is because I really need a new printer. I Canon has a nice one that's on sale right now for about $200.00 and Epson has a similar one. I don't really have the extra cash right now, so I have to juggle some equipment around in order to get the stuff I need.

So yeah, the Canon EOS 630 will probably be listed tomorrow after work.

It's funny because I was in the house all day and most of this evening, but I knew I had to go to Safeway to get some food stuff for work tomorrow. I was putting it off all afternoon. Finally I went there at 10:30 PM. Perhaps it's just me, maybe I was being cranky, but tonight I was noticing the high prices of food and it really got me pissed off. It's as if I had some kind of epiphany or something--I mean, it's not like I haven't shopped there before and spent unreasonable prices on food--but tonight it struck me hard, and I was rather shocked my the ridiculousness of it all. There I was, about to buy a carton of eggs and I noticed the price; $4.69 for 12 large organic eggs. Now, should we really be paying $4.69 for a carton of eggs? It pissed me off and made me wish the person who decided they should be priced so high, was standing there beside me. I'd really like to know how anyone could believe that is fair price for eggs.

I thought that organic eggs came from chickens that are free range. Shouldn't they cost less? It bugs me that we (those of us who choose to eat healthy, wholesome food) have to pay more for it. When did this happen? Why?

Well, before I end up writing a novel on the subject, I should really get to bed. I gotta get up at 5:30 AM. I should have been in bed a few hours ago. Got the 'Sunday night blues' again.
