So this is the coolest. my newest digicam accessory. The Gorillapod, made by JOBY. It's a flexible tripod, that can go just about anywhere.

Why I heart JOBY so much, is that it eliminates the need for those ridiculously cheesy urges one gets to 'take their own photo'. Or worse yet, for 2 or 3 people to try and take their own photos by holding out their camera.

Also - what better thing to take on a vacation for 2!!?? I no longer need to ask a crazy stranger to take my photo, when I'm nervous that they'll run off with it and then dissappointed when they chop our heads OFF.

I put Joby on our FRIDGE as soon as I got him. (ignore the fingerprints)

Then I set the self-timer and grabbed Lucy for a quick pic!

I am not the only crazy JOBY fan!

what it means to be mini.

Europe planning is fun and stressful, but coming along. Last night we rented a car for our 4 days in Switzerland. We'll be tooling around Geneva, wandering through the Swiss Alps on our way to Interlaken to check out Jung Frau, and then hopping over to Lyon, France to catch up with friends for a night. Sounds like a lot of driving, but Switzerland is a very small country!

When researching car rentals, I couldn't help but laugh when seeing the mini/compact options. They look like souped up golf carts to me... haha. Reminds me of that movie with Brittany Murphy and Ashton Kutcher.... I really hope we don't have similar experiences.
