camera repair

Does anyone know of any decent camera repair shops anywhere in the Bloomington-Normal area? My digital camera(unfortunately) has some minor problems with it, and I'd like to get them fixed really badly. Preferably would like an independent camera shop, but I'm open-minded to any suggestions as to what places in the area do this.

Thanks so much for anyone who can help me out.

Seeking Roommate (F)

So, this is a bit of an odd post. I'm trying to see if what I'm looking for is any kind of possible.

I'm looking for a roommate, but not until September. I'm putting this up now so that, in case you are interested, we can meet a few times, discuss expectations, rules, and generally form some level of acquaintance prior to cohabitations.

ROOMATE WANTED to share 3-bedroom apartment in downtown Normal. Free heat and water. Broadband internet. Rent is $300 per month. The only utility you would have pay is the electric bill, which would be split three ways, along with the internet/cable would be split two ways, since my other roomate does not use the internet since he doesn't have a computer. The apartment includes one bathroom, a living room, and a kitchen. The available room also has a walk-in closet. Lots of storage space. The apartment is in a great location, especially for college students. It's EXTREMELY close to ISU campus, within walking distance. It's close to shops and restaurants. I enjoy living here. I'm a very nice, normal guy. I'm 25 years old. I work for State Farm Insurance and may be taking classes at ISU again soon. I act in plays in my spare time. I majored in Acting at ISU. I'm also gay. I like to say that out front, just so people know. Not that it matters. Just so you know. Aka, if you have a problem with it, this probably isn't the place for you. Not that I flaunt it. I'm a pretty quiet, private person. I'm looking for someone who is responsible and dependable. The other roomate is a straight male, around my age. He's in and out of the apartment alot. The room will be available on December 15th. If you're interested, simply repond and let me know. :o)

Movie Theatres

Is there anything in Bloomington-Normal comparable to Champaign's Boardman's Art Theatre? A smaller theatre that shows films that wouldn't normally make it to larger, more mainstream movie theatres?

Also, what are some fun things to do on a weekend in B-N?

If anyone ever needs a good dentist in B/N,  Frank Koe is really good.  His office is over by the Kroger on College Ave.   I don't have his contact info close by and I'm still kinda novicaned up.  I'm sure you can find him in the Yahoo Yellow Pages.  He just fixed a crap job that my family dentist did. 

He's really nice, really good, and not very expensive.  I just had a surprise root canal and it was really not that bad.  Anyway, just wanted to share!

Warm Weather

1.  Best place to go for waxing.
2.  Best night spot (dance clubs/karaoke/live bands/etc)
3.  Favourite place to go for a walk or run
4.  Best Ice Cream
5.  Favourite spot to hang out and talk (outdoors or indoors)/coffee shops
