The 70–200 Conversation

So, I haven’t done one of these in a while. I was con­vers­ing with Juan about what gear to pack for my Big Island trip next week. Com­ing up with at least these: 

  • 20D + SD400
  • 17–35/2.8–4
  • 28–75/2.8
  • bat­ter­ies + chargers

He then sug­gested to bring the 70–200 as well. Now, for those non-shutterbug geeks, this lens is huge and heavy but it packs a wallop.

Any­ways, here’s how it ended:

juan: (-) addi­tional weight w/ the above pack
juan: ?!?!?!?!?!?
juan: what good is work­ing out if you can’t carry an extra 10 pounds?!
juan: wuss
juan: I’ll fight you

Money-matters

While talk­ing about ING Direct’s increased inter­est rate (i.e. 3.3% from 3.0%):

me (10:43:26 PM): didn’t you want my finan­cial advisor’s con­tact info?
juan (10:44:38 PM): im good for now, i want to start sav­ing some money before investing
me (10:45:02 PM): ummm thats an oxymoron
