This is a post that has been in my draft box for a few days now!
So today is a lucky day, finally it is seeing a day light of this beautiful day.... Grrrrrr it is a bit grey, raining and no sun... but whatever, at least it's a new day, at least there is some light.
( A new day, new beginning that is what people say right? OK OK trying to sound optimistic in this dull weather that's it, accepted)
17th Oct, Sunday evening
We had a party today at home, One reason as it is next day of Diwali and our New year and other reason we haven't had any parties after we moved in this house. So double reasons!
We had a good time, socializing, eating, singing... and I was trying to take some pictures also in between all this as well.
Now I am sitting, tired, relaxed all at the same time and going through some of the pictures I took during the day and same time wondering, is this time to buy a new camera? May be time to move ahead of P & S and go for SLR!
We are at MediaMarkt, and Ashu is looking for something (he is always looking for something there; I guess he can go there everyday, every evening, it is his favorite stop in whole market!)
He is trying to move me ahead from this particular section containing cameras and I am glued there, this guy sees that, comes to us and asks if we need any help.
Ashu... No we are just looking...
He... Have you done your home work?
At this point, I jump in-between interrupting conversation...
No, but we are just starting to do that.... ummm hmmm which one is better??
Ashu, I want a new Camera.
I want a new camera, Ashu...
Okay which one...
I don't know :o( But i want one !!!

Ashu, I want a new Camera.
Okay you do some research on which one you want.
I have googled everything about it; I want either Nikon D90 or Canon 50D.
Okay, how much it costs?
21st Oct, Thursday
Whether to spend that much on camera? We are not going to use half of its functions and it will be our first SLR so why not to go for lower configuration?
But then we are not going to buy our next camera very soon, why not to invest in a medium range that will last for few years!
I discuss my confusion even with G at work. (Obviously as that was all, i was able to think about !)
22nd Oct, Friday
All what I can think about is Camera.
Ashu, can we go to MediaMarkt in evening? (As I know, he never says no for that, how smart I am!! hehe)
One more round to MediaMarkt.
23rd Oct, Saturday
G sends me camera comparisons to make my search for the perfect one easier, but that only adds more to my craziness!
24th Oct, Sunday
Ashu, I couldn't sleep well today,
Why, what happened dear? Are you alright?
Yeah, but all I could think about in my dreams was my new SLR. Didn't let me sleep properly.
Haha you are going crazy
Okay tell me which one?
I don’t know whether to spend this much... but I badly want one.
Make up your mind....
25th Oct, Monday
Morning, while driving to office...
I want DSLR.
Yeah I know...
I really want one...
Okay tell me which one...
But I am still confused this one or something of a bit lower cost range.... Or we can buy camera with lower range lens and then after few months I will buy other lens with higher range so that will save us on budget right now.
Are you sure?
Ya ya whatever, but I want a SLR.
Ya, what you just said.
Evening, while driving back from Painting class...
I don't like anything
Why dear, what happened?
I don't know, just....
I want camera
Do you think that will cheer you up and you will feel better?
Ya, I think so...
And how is that?
It is like you feel many times, when you hear about a new phone and want it (about every few months, minimum twice a year), the way you feel, you know? I don't feel so for anything like that normally, but for this I have a similar feeling, now you understand it?
Yeah, got it... so if you get a camera will you feel better, your mood will change?
Ya, I think so...
Ya Okay, we will see.
Upon reaching home...
I go to bed and see a covered packet on my bed... and without looking at what it is, I jump....
You got it?
*** No reply!!! ***
I look back and find him standing there with that very same smile; I had fallen in love with from the first day....
Open the bag...
Ya??? ohh yeah...
I come out of my trance state and open the bag.....
And there it is !!! My first SLR Nikon D90....
I hope today you will get a good night sleep.... :o)
And I surely had :o) (Of course only after playing with my latest possession till 2.30am in the night, and that too as i had office next day !)
Love you sweet heart for that and many more wonderful moments you have gifted me ... you are the best :o)
