    Well, when the bill comes will you be able to pay it?

    Not so much worried about paying for the camera, just for the viewfinder that I can now justify in buying another one of as well. Fortunately it came with the film charger and viewing glass included. Ooops, excuse me . . .
    Thank you.

    Let me just point out that prozac may be used to treat many compulsions, including the mood cycles that give rise to addictive shopping, and it is available in an inexpensive generic form.

    However, when describing your compulsion to your healthcare professional in order to solicit a prescription, please do be sure not to use our colloquial acronym. Medically speaking, what we have is photo-oniomania, not GAS.

    And no, oniomania has nothing to do with onanism, even though some of us have been known to press camera gear fondly against our bodies. It is a vicious cycle. If you do get new gear, you must not hug it, or your body will generate oxytocin and then your bank account will be drained.

    It's tax season...I'm having a bout of gas myself...but thankfully I've gotten the okay from the significant other to have it!
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    Onomata-what? I dunno where you came up with that one, Keith, but nice. As to my significant other, if my beloved wife were to know that I just referred to her as my significant other she would probably significant me right in the others and that would REALLY produce some GAS. Non-photographic in all likelihood.
    Thank you.

    This might be the most accurate analysis of GAS I've ever seen. Thanks, I understand my disorder now much better! Now where did I put that Prozac...
