My husband is good for a laugh (and a camera rec)

Y’all, I got up around 5:00 today. I’ve been working all day. A large percentage of the deals I’ve highlighted have been at Amazon. Throughout the day, my husband—now long-used to how Black Friday works ’round here—has passed through my office half-a-dozen times, always offering to top off my coffee or fetch me some food or whatever.

Just now an Instant Messenger window popped up (what? he’s upstairs, man) on my screen with him sputtering about how much he hates Amazon. When I asked what seemed to be the trouble, he pointed me at today’s Gold Box deal (which, coincidentally, may be just about the only thing on Amazon I haven’t linked to, today). It seems that the featured Canon PowerShot S100 gets—and this is a direct quote—the “Otto Appropriate Seal of Approval,” but he’s a little bitter because he bought it six months ago for $100 more than they have it, today. (In case you’re new around here: The husband is a professional photographer. He owns an entire roomful of cameras and lenses, but he also has two high-end point-and-shoots he uses as “carry everywhere” cameras, and this is one of them.)

“That camera is phenomenal in terms of durability and features,” he said, right before he began ranting again about the $100 he could’ve saved if he’d waited.

I’ve trained him so well, y’all.


  1. Oh Mir, you’ve done it again. Amazon is playing hard to get. New Gold Box deal is something stupid.

  2. Oh wait, deal of the day is different. Nevermind. Carry on.

  3. I purchased the S95 last year on your husband’s recommendation, and for the same price, I might add, and I love it. I take better pictures with it than any other camera, and it is so very easy to use. If I needed a digital camera, I would buy this, hands down.

  4. what a pretty way to end the day

  5. Oh, Mir – “Y’all”? Lord help you.

  6. Gotta love the guy. Absolutely.
