We haven't gone to Birmingham to get the ring yet, we will do that soon.
The digital camera is being repaired because some of the pixels were burnt out.
Max just bought me a Lomo camera at half price off of ebay and it arrived today. It's mostly to see if I like it or not and if I do then he may buy me a newer one. Excited!
I don't have a return ticket back to Washington yet. I'm thinking about mid-July. I was supposed to go home this month, but we have too much left to discuss and do. Not to mention I'm really dreading being away from Max again.
Dad and Gael will be going to Spain for a week in late July to perform at a music festival in Benicassim. I wish so badly that I could join them there, but I don't have enough money. Also risking more trouble from immigration isn't very appealing. The line-up is amazing though, I'm incredibly envious:
Belle and Sebastian
Bentley Rhythm Ace
Death Cab For Cutie
The Divine Comedy
Manic Street Preachers
k, I have to stop there, I'm about to cry. :)
The camera we had was alright, but it was fairly cheap and didn't take as high quality photos as I would like. They stopped making that model, so we're hoping to get a better replacement or a refund to buy a new one. Max's parents just bought a £500 digital camera for £200. It has a lot more features and takes better pictures than ours, but was the same price. We're hoping to find a good deal like that.
also worth a mention... ETIENNE DE CREÇY (i've been hooked), THE AVALANCHES (great cd!), and OS MUTANTES (listed as NIÑOS MUTANTES but if it's OS MUTANTES they are a crazy psych brazilian band from the 60s who may have regrouped?)... I just wish this kind of a show could happen in the us of a.....
That's a good question. They caught a lot of flak when they asked their female voice to leave the group. I'm not quite sure why they did that. She was pretty much the unique factor. Without her, they're not anything out of the ordinary.
