new toy...

I bought a flip video camera.

It's pretty groovy and today was the first day with it. It's incredibly easy to operate, I'm just getting my "sea legs" using the thing. I will try to get better videos in the future. This is a way for me to keep you posted on things happening and to cut down on me writing. I'm not a writer so I always feel like I am embarrassing my friends who are. Don't even get me started on my cringe worthy spelling and grammar.

Baxter makes an appearance, even though he's not quite sure how he feels about this invasion of privacy. I think he will have me paying for this with a "treat" increase. Seems fair.

Cute. Cute. Cute. How old is baxter? He seems like the best little pup. I have one of those Flips and it's easy to use and upload and all that, but it takes a while to get used to shooting yourself. You're not sure where exactly to point and how much of yourself you;re actually getting. I have a ton of half my head videos. Very attractive.

Please tell me you're single and that I have a chance. Just humor me. You are one of the most beautiful men. It must be the european thing. I have a weakness. the beautiful bald head and smile don't hurt either. Baxter is quite the looker as well.

He is sooooo cute!
Hope you had a Happy Holiday Season and I wish you a Prosperous New Year,

PS. I love '24hrs' whatever that magazine says it's only the opinion of a couple of persons. Keep the great work!

Lights, camera, action. I enjoyed Baxter's on-camera debut.

As its unanimous that he is such a cute little guy; I see the possibility of Canine stardom in his future..... with a contract demand for more kibbles. (Winks)

Have fun with your new camera! Looking forward to seeing more videos.

I think it's great that you are enjoying your new toy, but I hope you won't decrease your written output. I really love how engaging your writing style is. Plus, it's great practice for your upcoming book!

Katie Couric moment: I am watching an episode of Clean Sweep with a couple who has, among other things, lots of toy chickens. You mentioned that this was the filthiest family room you had encountered (cat feces and urine). My question is, where the participants ever embarrassed by the state of their homes? How did they justify the condition of their homes? Did you ever take the homeowners to task ala Peter Walsh? How did your lunch stay down having to deal with other peoples' smelly, dirty houses?

I LOVE that Baxter gets "good boy treats" - that's what I say to my dogs!!!

Fantastic blog Angelo!! I adore Baxter and really want that new toy you just got as well:))

I can totally relate with the writing thing, I overanalyze my wording to much and can talk better into the camera, well sometimes;)
