Just another relaxing Sunday

I love Sundays. Except for maybe a household chore or two, I'm pretty much a non-productive individual on Sunday. And that's how I like it.

After reviewing the Europe pictures taken by both my mom's camera (a 3.2MP Canon), and my inferior Sony DSC-30, I've decided that I need a new digital camera. I did some research and decided on the Sony Cybershot DSC-W1. I don't know if Sony has stopped making this one already (it was only introduced this past spring), but there seems to be out-of-stock issues at a lot of retailers. stated it is OOS from the manufacturer, and I ordered it from (the best price I found), only to get an email from them saying my order has been cancelled due to it being OOS. Turns out this was a good thing, because I checked Amazon and found that starting today, there is a $50 rebate on the camera. It will turn out to be a $40 net savings over my original order...provided I don't get similar bad news from Amazon in the coming days.
Worse comes to worst I'll just pick it up on Ebay, because I had already jumped the gun and ordered a 256MB memory stick from Ebay.

Another highlight of Sunday is taking advantage of my NFL Sunday Ticket subscription and Tivo. Watched both the Miami-Buffalo game as well as the Colts-Titans game. Peyton Manning is fun to watch. Being a Dolphin/Marino fan, I really wanted Dan's record to hold up, but you can't help but root for Manning and be happy for him...and I've never seen a quarterback execute play-action better than him. By the time this guy's career is over, he will be the one who sets the standard by which future rising QBs will be judged. Hopefully he will be able to overcome the one hurdle that Marino couldn't. Provided he keeps playing the way he is, I think he can do it, because he has something Marino never had...that being a balanced offense.
I do hope though, that the remainder of Marino's major records hold up at least through Dan's lifetime. ;-)
