I vowed NOT to buy anything else for this trip.  Well, I lied :) .  

Destination:  Scuba 2000 in Markham.  Reason for visit:  Battery change in Marcus' dive computer.

While this was being done, I made the fatal mistake of 'browsing'.  "Well looky what we have here, an awesome looking video light".  Alex (store owner) comes over and magically produces 4 AAA batteries ... and demos the light for me.   I'm tempted ... it would be great to have this light to use with my new camera (which takes HD Video) and my new Underwater Housing.  

Need to think about, I said ... I'm not worried ... there are 2 on the shelf ... and I walk away.  Right behind me are two guys who are also eying the video lights.  They are discussing using both video lights with their Underwater get up.  Alex takes them into the store room to demo the light for them.  I panic ... I make Marcus run around the back of the counter and grab the light that's still in the box.  Victory !!!   I take it to the checkout counter.  "HOW MUCH" !  *swallow* ... they sweeten the deal with a "frequent diver" discount (well at least it looked after the tax).

Do I regret it?  Hellz no ! .. well not yet anyway.  Let's hope it doesn't flood :D
