    La it was a one hit wonder. The camera retails for $500 and we bought it for $349. Check your local Circuit City and look around. The floor model of the nikon d40 was not marked, making it seem as if none were left. I looked in the cabinet below and there was one brand new camera left in the store. The sales guy acted as if he was going to snap it up if we didn’t.

    I watched you spin that yarn! It came out SO pretty. So…when you say “song” are we talking a one-hit wonder, or solid gold?
    (I’d like to get a new camera AND a laptop)
