I want this Nikon camera lens more than anything!

I'm a blogger, and I frequently read other blogs. The other day, I was reading a blog and the author said she had just received a new camera lens for her birthday. I'm a photographer, so I was extremely happy for another photographer (and blogger).

But the whole situation got me thinking. My birthday is a little over a month away, and I really, really need a new lens.  So I did some research and found exactly what I want. Best Buy has this lens for $199.99. It guarantees to let more light in since it has a wider aperture. Sorry for the tech talk. That just means that I can take better pictures indoors without using flash. (I don't like flash!) I really hope that I can somehow manage to afford this because it's all I can think about. No, seriously. I had a dream about it last night!

Have you ever wanted something so bad you can't stop thinking about it?
