Yes...... when my other digi shat itself ( I am certain that's the correct technical term ) , after a prolonged evening of swearing, I walked into my dealer's gallery and said
" my friggin camera blew up - how am I gonna take piccies of the sky to do any new paintings for you ?"
Dealer " shit what are you gonna do? "
Brainless " I don't know - this is the last thing I need.... another expense !"
Dealer " digital camera's aren't expensive "
Brainless " those are crap ones - for bimbos to take happy snaps of their stupid friends at restaurants "
Dealer " How much do you need ? "
Brainless " $2,500 "
Dealer " is there anyway I can help ? "
Brainless " I don't know, do you want one of my paintings for $2,500 - I'll guarantee you that'll put in a good word for you in the afterlife " ( yes I said that )
Dealer " ok, I'll pick one * writes cheque out for $2,500 *
Brainless " thanks " , goes out the next day and buys the kit for $1,970, including the 2 gig card..... pockets the $570 which more than covers the approx costs of about $200 for the painting ( which took 2 days to paint ).
Yay !!!! I have a D80
PS my dealer is worth about a hundred million and is a very nice man.
