Title: I feel like a kid again....
Post by: adhocphotographer on December 19, 2012, 02:20:04 AM
As one grows up, the excitement of Christmas diminishes... you know what your getting (socks) and it's focus drifts away from the presents and more towards spending time with your family and friends...

But this year...  this year....  i can not wait for Christmas morning!!!!!  I feel like a 10 year old kid eagerly anticipating the nintendo shaped box under the tree... Why am i so excited this year?...  well let me tell you! While finding a hiding spot for my wifes present at home (macbook air), i was rummaging at the back of the guest room closet to see if there was space there, i found a 5d mkiii kit!!!! :D soooo....  it is there, 15ft from where i sleep....  and i can't touch it until the morning of the 25th! Hence the excitement... I just hope she charges the battery for me! :)

Anyway, this has no real relevance to anyone, but since i don't have many photo-buddies (recently moved to india) here so i needed to share...  now i need to act all nonchalant so my wife doesn't find out...

I hope you all have a great Christmas season and a happy new year...  :)

-> carefully open the box
-> take out the original camera

-> buy a disposable camera, and label it "5DMkIII" with a black marker
-> put it into the box and seal

now, when it comes to unwrapping, quickly(!) pull out the 5D to frame the expression of her face.
Great photography is all about being well prepared  ;)

Ditto.  No Nintendos.  Pac-Man, etc at the arcade.  Pong.  Asteroids.

Sorry kiddos, no Retina for Macbook Air.  Hasn't happened yet.  The "AppleRumors" are maybe in 2013.

Unless you have been outsmarted.... and she left the box where it could be found.... and on Christmas morning you open the box to find a pair of socks.... and your wife snaps the picture of the surprised face.....

And to all: Merry Christmas, happy holidays, may the force be with you, or whatever the appropriate greeting for your religion is.

A nice LV bag will do nicely to compensate her gift.  :)  Take her someplace nice and give her an evening she'll never forget.  Don't forget to bring your camera.  It will be nice for some low-light pics with her.  :)  HOHOHO!

i just read my post and it looks like i barely speak english. Thats what i get for using my phone when i first wake up. Yeah i was so disappointed. Not in my wife obviously she is amazing and very sneaky with her gift giving. I was just so sure for the first 8 seconds and then my spirit just dropped! ha i am still hoping to get her back this year!

This is the absolutely BEST and MOST HILARIOUS post I've ever read on one of the photog fora...Merry Christmas, adhocphotographer...well as I said in the days before the 5D3s official announcement: "there is joy in the waiting..."  8) And be aware: The 5D3 is an awesome camera! Bought one in August, payed the premium but it was worth every swiss franc! Took some 2.4k photos to date.

I don't know how to handle this. I am trying to teach my children not to open the Christmas presents before Christmas, although I have admitted to doing that myself when I was a child. Has this spread into the adult generation now?  ;D

My wife came home last week with a wrapped pressie, handed it to me and said you better learn how to use this before we leave for India (we're in India at the moment for a friend's wedding). I had been lusting over the 5D mkIII since it came out but refrained from buying. I unwrapped the box and it was a brand new 5D3 kit.  ;D ;D ;D

Don't know what I did to deserve my wife but I would so do it again and again (and again)! I hope you have as much fun with yours as I have had with mine.  8)

Today (21 Dec) is the big day. The world is going to end and we're all going to die. Remind your wife of this and suggest to her that you open your presents this morning.

Then, pretend to be surprised when the world doesn't end (unless, of course, the Eta Carinae hypernova event happens today and we actually do all die).

It is awesome, especially paired with my 70-200 IS II...  Nope, she had no idea, but i think she charged it too, as it was not put in the box as i had put it! :) all is good!

In case you are wondering who "we" includes, it is none of the quoted - it is I, me and myself ;)
