Not that it's tit for tat over here (who are we kidding?) but with Jack gone to Brazil, I was left with lots of time on my hands. Time to think, and time to buy. We stewed for months about whether or not I should go to Brazil with him, and in the end, I decided I should stay home. Jack was bummed because he kept trying to get me to go, but it just never felt like the right decision. Now I know why. Because if I had gone to Brazil, I never would have felt justified in buying my new Canon Powershot SX40. I have been wanting a bridge camera (or superzoom, as my research taught me they are called) for a few years but my old tiny camera just wouldn't die. It tried a couple times, but was brought back to life each time. Jack took it to Brazil and while he was away, life was happening and I couldn't take pictures. I really had no choice in the matter--the situation compelled me to buy. It was almost like a power controlled me. (we are all clear this is total crap, yes?)
