Lots of news! (Kind of)
First, and most importantly, my dad's here! He flew in from Michigan for a conference at Berkeley, and so is staying with us for a few days. :) He's the first of my family to visit me here, so I'm happy. It's been rainy all today, but we drove around Berkeley and saw the apartment where I lived after I was born!
Second: bought myself a little present.... the Canon 5d Mark II!! :P Everyone's flipping out about the Mark III that just came out, but I wasn't so impressed and was instead interested in the sudden drop in Mark II price.. NOW THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. :D Bought one in perfect condition from a local photographer, and I'm loving the heck out of it. Below is a really bitty video I took while testing it out. If you want to see a 30 second glimpse of my kitchen, check it out. ;D

Expect lots of pics and videos, because I am super excited about this bad boy. I deserve to treat myself sometimes!
