Now for something completely silly.
I read of this $26 gadget that acts as a remote shutter control for the camera feature on my cell phone.
Amazon.com had them on sale for $6 with free shipping!
No more fighting with the 10 second timer feature. The Shutterball communicates with my phone's camera via Bluetooth. One press of the button and I can activate my camera from 30 feet away.
"Mom, it looks like a pacifier."
"Do you need me to show you how to use it?"
"Maybe she's not as dumb as she looks after all!"
"I'm leaving, she's getting silly."
"Watch were you're grabbing will ya."
"Only John Travolta could be proud of you."
"Realize that if you dance like this in public, they will arrest you. There aren't enough milk bones in the world that could bail you out. Just sayin', Gracie..."
"Show 'em your afar test,"
"follow it with the up close test."
Cause to celebrate: we have an improved way to take more pictures of us trail running and embroiled in more shenanigans...
