I have two friends. They are twins. They turned 25 last Friday.
So, last night, a few of us went out for dinner to celebrate. Then, we came back to my place to eat cake and play the Twilight board game (which, if you are wondering, is completely lame if you are older than 13. For example, one of our questions was: Have each player secretly vote for the player that would be most likely to become a vampire. If you guess the player with the highest votes, you win the challenge).
Anyway, Amy made this yummy, beautiful cake for us to enjoy. She makes some delightful cakes, that's for sure. I took a picture of it while it was sitting on the counter and then I carried it over to the table while we graced my landlords upstairs with a beautiful rendition of happy birthday.
And the rest of the pictures from the night look like this...
Why do the pictures look like this, you ask? Well, because as I carried the cake to the table, I had my camera (lens open, ready to snap photos) on my wrist. As I set the cake down the table, I somehow managed to set my camera face down on top of it.
Yes, my friends. I whipped icing-ed my camera.
The irony of this story is that the fabulous dude is constantly making jokes about the amount of food that is caked onto my camera as a result of all the food photos I take for my cooking blog. However, completely submersing my camera lens in whipped icing is a new accomplishment for even someone such as myself.
We managed to clean it off enough to take some decently non-blurry photos but then when I turned the camera off and tried to turn it back on to show the FD when he got home, the lens wouldn't open. It was stuck shut. He got it open with some prying and now it won't close. So the lens remains open whether the camera is on or not. The icing is still visible around the outer edges of the lens so I am confident that my camera will never be the same. We've been thinking about getting a new one for a while, so perhaps our decision has been made.
But for the next little while, until we make a decision about a new purchase, please just pretend that all my photos are not blurry and bordered with icing.
