    So my girlfriend and I were sitting by each other on our laptops. I was looking through various photo sites doing some research before I buy, and as such was talking about the different items in my cart for no reason really. Then I look over and discover that she was drawing a picture in paint the whole time of various random things I had mentioned (and some she made up in her head). I must have laughed for a good five minutes. That's supposed to be a bottle of Rodinal, not...something else...

    If you don't propose tomorrow, you're an idiot.

    Many of us spend a lifetime trying to figure out how life works. Your girl friend seems to have it all figured out and she is still with you. She is a keeper. Bill Barber

    That pictogram is amazingly accurate....

    My girlfriend still doesn't know what role an enlarger plays in the process.

    A few years ago I took my girl friend with me when I went to a camera store. The store was having a no sales tax day and they had many vendors at tables in the store: Nikon, Cannon, Leica, ... Tamron had just come out with the Tamron Aspherical XR LD [IF] 28-300mm 1:3.5 6.3 Macro lens. I spun the wheel of fortune and won a Tamron t-shirt. My girl friend spun the wheel of fortune and won the Tamron Aspherical XR LD [IF] 28-300mm 1:3.5 6.3 Macro lens for me!

    I haven't decided. We have only been together 8.5 years and we still have not had a fight. So I do not know if we are compatible.

    FWIW, she is 5'9" and weighs 125 pounds, great figure and drop dead gorgous.
