    So I took pics for my wifes cousin this weekend at her baby shower. I volunteered to do so as a gift. Well me being the great genius decided to use a filter for the shower. I mistook the UV filter for a diffusion filter and all the pics came out soft almost blurry! Anyone ever had this happen? Im so effin pissed that most of the great shots came out blurry.

    I've often wondered this, but what on earth is a baby shower?

    A way to get a lot of the things you need.

    For freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! :D

    Basically girls get together and have a 'party' for their pregnant friend/relative and bring baby gifts.

    Torture men....are you crazy? THe men don't have to go to the baby shower and in exchange we get a bunch of items that we would have had to spend 100's of dollars on otherwise. Baby shower's rock. I wish I could have one once a year...lol.

    Seems my wife knew what they were. Apparently they are something of an American thing - a bit like Halloween, but with less make-up

    Yeah, I think it is an American thing. It's our uber capitalist society feeding the machine. It seems like we have at least 1 gift giving holiday a month over here along with all the special gift giving moments like birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers (this is double dipping since you get wedding gifts the day of), etc.

    Fathers Day is this coming weekend folks! Be sure to buy him something expensive!
