I have no rational reason for doing so, but I really want Santa to bring me this for Christmas. I’m not sure why, it’s not something I really need. Although sometimes I take pictures, I’m not a “photographer” by any stretch of the imagination. I hardly use the camera I already have, a Canon PowerShot A60. This would be like giving an F-16 to the pilot of a Piper Cub.

The Digital Rebel XT costs as much as some used cars, or, as Mrs. Toast will be quick to point out, a new washer and dryer (which we do, in fact, need). There are so many more sensible ways to spend the big-ticket bucks this thing costs.

You may notice that I am trying to talk myself out of this. It’s not working.

    Clean clothes are SO overrated. I vote for the camera. (Please don’t give Mrs. Toast my blog address.)

    Just to let you know, Staples, at least the one here in Tennessee, has the Rebel XT on clearance for somewhere in the low $700s.. I bought an original Rebel on ebay for $465 a few weeks ago and I love it. Good luck on getting the Rebel XT.

    I was thinking – with a really kickass camera you could just take pictures of your clothes and then see if they were really dirty or not. I mean, the smallest speck would show up, and then you could just spot clean it. Why waste all of that water and kill the environment anyway?

    You know, Supacoo, I really like your way of thinking.

    Have you considered government work?

  5. SupaCoo says:

    I’m for the environment, so that being said, NO, I haven’t considered government work. :)

    Screw the camera and the washer/dryer. I want a big-screen TV.
