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 only my path ended with money instead of just starting with it...

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.

I knew the "enlarger" jokes would come up sooner rather than later......

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!

Come on man, finish the story. Did you give her the T-shirt or not?

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.

Yes, she is taller then me. But all women know why a tall woman is with a short man. :wink:

He makes a good living and she can set her beer down on his bald spot?:D:D
