geekery, drawing and then some

I needed new shoes. I don't own many so when I say 'need', I do mean need.
I had proper bad weather shoes and a pair of awesome teva sandals that I loved wearing during warm weather. The sandals had one big issue: my insoles don't fit. I have special insoles, specifically made for my weird feet to help prevent pains. The few times I wore my sandals this year I ended up with hurting feet -- even after only two hours. So I went on a mission to get other summer-y shoes. These will fit my insoles, didn't cost a fortune and I like them because they look a little weird.
Also, they look great for drawing.
Awh, so cute!

My camera has started to break down. I currently have a Canon Powershot A620 and it served me well for nearly four years. Currently, the memory-card bit doesn't work properly. The card doesn't click in and if I take it out the camera doesn't recognise the card half the time I put it back. I've dug up the cable and now get the photos from the camera by the cable (a nuisance).
I looked into other cameras and now have my eye on the Canon Powershot SX20 IS. I like Canon, and have had a few in the past and like the menu and the way it works. This model seemed a good step up from the A620 but not yet as massive as a DSLR. I don't have anything with DSLRs in general. And knowing me I'll get sand on the sensor on the first day and ruin the camera because it scratches.
I won't buy it just yet, probably in June.
