Woohoo! Andy’s not dead! He’s not exactly loquacious at the moment, but at least he’s still ticking along.

Hmmm… unless he’s programmed his digital camera to post pictures posthumously to his blog…

lol. I had to look up loquacious as I had no idea what it meant :-)

Not dead, just been swimming with sharks for the last week.

Hey, it’s nice to take a break from your blog and return to Real Life ™. How’d your new camera do?

Let me get this straight…

You buy an expensive underwater camera housing, go on holiday to the worlds most exotic dive location for two weeks and come back with a photo of…. a daffodil… in June?

Are you sure you’re not suffering from nitrogen narcissus?

“Nitrogen narcissus”? A tendency to look at yourself in the mirror, caused too much insert gas in the bloodstream? Or wait: a tendency to look at flowers caused by too much — oh, I get it. Duh.

I’m still not convinced he’s not dead. How could anyone know know what “loquacious” means? Unless they happened to be… (drum roll) a super-intelligent (but comparitively illiterate) digital camera! It’s true! Andy has been eaten by sharks and his camera is continuing his blog! It all makes sense!

Coming soon: advice on getting Microsoft to fix their CSS bugs by taking compromising pictures of Bill Gates in the bath…

I’m afraid I didn’t get the camera and housing in the end. I was planning to pick one up at the airport, but a couple of days before going away, I realised that the bateries in my dive computer had dies. You have to send them off to get changed and there was no way I’d have to time, so I ended up having to buy a new one. Not a hige problem as I’ll donate my old one to my girlfriend. However it cost and extra 200 which I haden’t budgeted for, so I decided that the camera and housing would have to wait till next time (which hopefully won’t be that long away).

Sorry Andy, I feel a complete bastard now :-(
Much better that you have a functioning dive ‘puter than a camera, eh?
(btw, what model did you buy?)

Basically the cheapest one they had. A Suunto Gekko
