This Modern Life

At lunchtime yesterday, I went out to do my duty and save the ailing economy by visiting the Big Box Electronics Store to buy a case for my camera. I couldn't find one that was appropriate (meaning I couldn't find one in leopard print), so if the economy collapses with a stupendous crash, you can blame me. 
However, as I trudged back to my truck in abject despair, I saw this sleek modern tableau just waiting to be photographed. I shot it just moments before a Geek appeared to drive his Squad car away at a disturbingly high velocity for being in a parking lot.  Thank goodness I didn't have to fumble with a silly camera case, or I'd have missed the shot.

I need one of those, geek squad member, not a leopard camera case.

I enjoy your sense of humour as much as your photos! :-)

I have spent the better part of the summer and too much cash sending back cases I bought online. Believe me, the do not make camera cases for hip chicks like you. You are probably going to have to settle for black or navy unless you are into camouflage. I settled for a navy/black backpack ensemble that is tres utilitarian but will finally hold everything.
That said, I like your sleek modern tableau today. Speeding Geeks- scary!

I have found a lot of Geeks to be geeks and not much more. They drive modern cars though.

Talk about lost in transaltion. What the f*** is that dinky litle car all about! I mean it even calls itself Geek. So you don't think it has lepoard print seat covers then?

I am cracking up at Babooska's comments. Somebody help her, I can't. Sorry! That's how I feel when I try and read the comments en francais! i had to go buy an English/French dictionary!

"Louis," too, went out yesterday and tried to do his part to revive the ailing economy. IKEA did a $2,800 walletectomy on "Louis," so if that doesn't help the economy, "Louis" doesn't know what else he could do.

Don't you hate it when drivers confuse store parking lots with the Indianapolis 500?!?!

The Geeks are out in force, they even have SUV's
