I Got Binoculars! June 11, 2009

Posted by Mitchell in Home.

Whoot!! I went ahead and ordered the Nikon Monarch ATB. It’s only been a few days and they’re already here! I gotta say I have excellent taste. They are very nice and I am well pleased.

Summer school has begun and I’m taking watercolor painting again. It’s four nights a week so posting and internettery presence in general will be lighter than usual for a while. Still, check back tomorrow because I will post my new efforts then. I trying to do a complete stylistic makeover and the results are…interesting so far.

Type at y’all later.

Isn’t it so much fun to have a vacation to look forward to? I hear Alaska is so beautiful. You’ll have such a great time!

I don’t know much about binoculars – but those look seriously beefy and kick-ass. Congrats on a no-doubt excellent choice!

“Interesting?” Is that anything like, “She has a great personality?”

I am looking forward to this trip Lipstick! I gotta say it will be unlike any other I’ve had.

Actually McGoo – they’re not all that big, which is a big plus! The roof prisms give them a nice, slender profile of the inline tubes and they’re not very heavy at all. The best binoculars in the world aren’t any good if you can’t stand to lug them around. 😉

Cbullitt, ye-esss in a way I guess you could say that. 😀 Definitely check back later tonight and I will have a full update with examples.

I meant beefy in the “solidly built” sense – not the “big as a cow” sense. Like you can drop ’em and not instantly be out hundreds of bucks.

Saw a moron in a disco in Cozumel one night who just had to bring his expensive n’ fancy Nikonos underwater camera with strobe. Why? Who knows – maybe to show it off. Stort story: it fell off their table, broke the strobe off at shoe fitting, and then some dancer kicked it across – and then off – the raised dance floor. What came back to the table must have been in about 20 pieces.

If you do drop them and feel like they aren’t salvageable, send them to me and I’ll discombobulate them for the prisms inside. Nice things live inside of binoculars – good ones, anyway.

Not that I think you’ll drop them but if I never say anything…

Have a kick-butt trip.

‘Goo, the only reason why you’d take an underwater camera to a bar is to troll for chicks. What an idiot. Of course they’re beer-proof, so maybe the basic idea is ok. When alcohol is involved, things of value get damaged. It’s a universal constant, like c or planck length and planck time.
