...because fiction is our greatest escape from reality...

A Little Behind

Sorry for the lack of updated posts. My computer kept crashing and when I added up the time I spent every single day repairing it before I could write or get on the Internet, I realized I could have rivaled Nora for top billing by now.

So, I got up the courage and bought a new system today. Bought the top system I wanted, so I’m still using my old CRT monitor. One of those sexy, flat screens is next on the list.

The speed is AMAZING!!!!!!!! I had kicked up my old computer, rebuilding and adding and tweaking but it was still over seven years old. This thing just zips up a web page in a second. I haven’t even tried any music yet and I got the Windows media package so I’m all about excitement right now.

What I’m currently listening to? Al Pacino in Scarface because the hubby has it up TOO LOUD and I’m too enamored of my system to get my lazy ass over to the office door.

Got in some of my Twisted Fanatics items today and they look great! Check them out!

See the kid’s hoody at the bottom? Made that especially for my son for Christmas, but the original was for my good friend, Christy, whose anime/manga habits boggle the mind! Of course, she did introduce me to Saiyuki… That’s Sanzo up there with the gun.

Gotta love those boys. saiyuki.com

Funny how Al Pacino can sound sexy normally, but NOT in this movie. Now, maybe if it was Sanzo above… ” Say hello to my little friend. “

    Glad you’re back! I loooong for a new computer.

    I bought Mom a new Dell for Christmas – 2.53 GHz. That’s faster than my machine! I was so tempted to keep it and give her mine – a newly updated 1.5 GHz. But I gave her the new one. She’s had this old dog that didn’t even have a USB or a PS/2 plug!

    You do have to get the flat screen. I broke down at Staples last year when faced with a screen that had been marked down and also had a rebate. I have not regretted it. The easy, the lightness, the quality is incredible. Remember too, that a 17″ flat is equal in viewing area to a 19″ CRT.

    Enjoy the new computer. As a registered techno-geek, I complete understand your excitement.

    I do have a flat screen, it’s just not one of those panels. The computer was the problem, so this screen still looks great.

    Now, if I could just get AOL to stop locking up and shutting the whole thing down. I’ve never had the trouble others have with AOL. My old clunker worked well with it, I guess.

    But this one came with all this software that’s now competing for dominance.

    I’m still happy. (grin)

    And as a nerd, I enjoyed this sales guy’s particular knowledge. Get this, he kept saying, “Let’s talk nerd to ex-nerd.”

    Am I too old to be a nerd now????
