New computer AND internet access, yay!!

So, yup, I broke down and gots me a new computer. I could hardly resist, as I don't give a hooey as to whether or not I get Windows Vista for a LONG time, and all the non Vista computers at work went on clearance PLUS an additional hundred and fifty off.

- 1 gig RAM
- 200 gig hard drive
- lightscribe/dual layer dvd burner

I would also tell you the processor and the graphics card, but I can't think of them right now - just woke up from a nap, you see, where I dreamed I kept popping into nothinganything and sonatamoonlite's to wash my face, which was totally covered in sticky caramel, but I kept getting sidetracked by a playing Paul. Eventually, they had to leave and Heather looked annoyed that I wouldn't use my own bathroom to clean my messy face.

But, anywell, I got the tower/keyboard/mouse for $369. Yes, that's right. Three hundred seventy bucks. This blows my old computer out of the water. I went to hook up my old 120 gig internal harddrive when I took it out of the box, but the inside looks a lot more daunting than I anticipated, so I refrained. Maybe I can give dispossessed ten bucks to do it? huhhuhhuh?!?

I also managed to mostly rehook the internet up the way it had been before my brother had attempted to rearrange everything (Hercules apparently put twisted the cable wire onto the splitter upstairs, so I managed all but that) so I seem to be back. The internet is still slow as fucking SIN (which is quite slow, I'll have you know.) so I'm wondering if a call to Comcast is into the works. Our internet has been uber slow (well, for the boys upstairs, who actually HAD internet), and especially with my computer being brand spankin new and hardwired instead of wireless, there is zero reason why it should take eight years to load a page. This is also the second stop since I went online (the first was to download firefox) so I haven't had a chance to infect it with anything yet ;)

What all did I miss? Methinks I shall screen the comments so that you can all fill me in on all the gory details of what occured in your lives over the last week.

I misseded you.

It's an.... odd time.

So many posts that I have been concocting in my head over the last week. I must tell you my dream, for example, that had a random cast of stars. I want to tell you all about the lie I told the lady last night regarding the computer that I just may end up paying karma for. I want to tell you about my hilarious Spanish teacher and how I'm convinced that all my instructors hate me this quarter. I want to tell you how the quarter is going so far, otherwise.

But I'm sleepy. I'm all filled up with friendship love and chinese potluck, so instead, I shall plead with you all, once again, to fill out my text messaging poll. So many numbers that I still don't have.

I feel silly saying that my purse was stolen, because as it was stolen on the very first night that I was carrying a new purse, and since it was too small to fit my wallet, I feel like I'm parading around with the purse everyone's seen me carry for the last year plus my beat up wallet plus my bank card and i.d. The only thing that has changed is that I have a new phone, so I sheepishly think that people are thinking "Schyeah, right. Drama queen."

But yes. Gimme your digits. And if you have already done so and didn't get my mass text about the computers today (or heard from me recently at all), that means that I hadn't been able to get your numbers into my phone before the innernets died.

I'm still amazed, a bit, at how much my friends circle has changed since I stopped drinking. Well, not completely stopped drinking, just stopped going out into drinking settings. At least now, I don't (usually) feel socially awkward around the people I hang out with and that I need to drink heavily and FAST in order to feel humane and comfortable enough to hang.
