She bids... SHE SCORES!

So, after the death of my last camera, and the mourning process was complete... (which took about 10 minutes since it was a crappy camera anyway), I quickly started looking on Ebay for a new one. I finally found a model that a few people I know have and really like:
The Panasonic Lumix FZ5.

There was a particular auction that I was paying close attention too since it came with a lot of extra stuff, and also came with an amazing price. The Auction was ending at 8:30 last night, but we had an invite for a big family night get-together (a bunch of people we are singing in an octet with). At 8:15, I looked at the clock, and figured I better just put the auction out of my mind since there was no way I'd be home in time... I decided to come straight in when we got home and look at the price that it ended up going for. I signed in, and found that there was less than a minute left in the auction! The first clock must have been fast! I quickly upped my bid, and with two seconds left, I won! And it was still at an amazing price! Score! I'm so so excited. Happy early birthday to me! (and until it comes, my friend let me borrow her second camera to help with my camera addiction)... :)

Oooh! I'm way excited for you. We so need to break down and get a new one. I had a nice one but it bit the dust about 9 months ago and I've just been getting by with Dave's and it really isn't the best camera!
