Everything is cheap in America!

Not much to report on the baby front as nothing is happening right now, no meds till Tuesday so I can enjoy a bit of free time - so we went to Best Buy yesterday!

For those of you who haven't been to Best Buy, it's kind of like a HUGE version of a Comet Store, and much much cheaper - oh and the staff are pretty helpful too (unlike it in the UK where they seem to hire idiots who know nothing about the products they are selling!).

I got very excited over several things, mostly cameras and video cameras but I was good! I saw the new Nikon D300 camera and got to have a play with it. Oooooo it is nice! As a photographer I got all unnecessary when I saw what the new features are on this latest model(I use a Nikon D100 at the moment but its 5 years old now!) and came very close to buying it, but I was good and I ended up walking away. However I now want this camera so I have to figure out a way to get one cheap! It was on sale for $1800 which is about £900 here, not bad when you think my D100 cost about £1400, I guess like most technology these days things come down a little in price as they develop the better versions.

I also saw the new video game Rockband! It's not out in the UK yet as we seem to always have to wait for these things - but it looked pretty sweet, so I can't wait for that too.

Other than that, we didn't do very much yesterday except eat great food again and chat, but thats how holiday's are meant to be right?
