New Laptop!
last modified: Monday, February 27, 2006 (2:29:28 PM)
Thanks to Senor's overwhelming generosity, I will have a new laptop tonight! ^_^ I say generosity, but I think it was partially self-serving. "Now I can finally surf the way -I- want..." hehe. But I don't mind, I'm elated to get a new computer, for whatever reasons. My current one is pitiful in regards to RAM.

Best Buy is having weekly sales you can find in their fliers. Every week a different laptop is marked down but they kept selling out the first day of the sale. Sunday we casually visit, assuming they would be sold out for the 3rd week in a row. But no! They had ONE left! =D So happy. So lucky. I turned to Senor and said, "Should we get it?!" and he's like "What is wrong with you?!" LOL. Well, I didn't want to appear greedy.. >_> heehee.

Being the sentimental fool that I am, I feel bad for my old laptop. *_* It still works! It's not... horrible! *violently clings to her old laptop* I've only had this one for close to 4 years. If it were up to me, I'd never buy anything. Senor got my first laptop and now the new one, too. He's more into gadgets and I honestly believe he uses me as an excuse to purchase new electronics and stuff. ^__~

Well, whether I'm ready or not, the laptop has been purchased. No backing down now! I'm always guilt ridden by "luxury purchases," so it will take some time to get over that as well. Senor's retort: "Hey, if you don't want it..." LOL =B

The worst part will be loading all of my documents, preferences, wallpapers and BOOKMARKS! >_< My current laptop does not have a CD burner, so the process will be time consuming at best. T-T

Hope you all have a great week! ^_^ http://welcomeconsumer.com

Congrats on the new top, toni! I have a friend who uses his wife as an excuse to buy the latest and greatest...LOL. You will always hear him say, "But everyone has this or that!". It''s hilarious. For some reason, I envision this "casual visit" as a mad dash in the car with an olympic sprint to the front door of Best Buy every Sunday morning. But, hey, that''s just me. Enjoy!

Yay! How exciting! My better half got me my laptop on my last birthday, so I kinda know how it feels to be "gratefully guilty." (Or maybe that''s "guiltily grateful"! I''m not sure which! ^__^) It does take awhile to get all the settings the way you like it, to make it feel like YOURS. But once you''re all set up, wooohooooo! you''ll have a blast zipping around on-line. Congrats on your new lappy (and on having such a sweet senor! :)

Congrats again you old hag. >:P The old laptop needs to go, LOL, out with the old and in with the new! I do agree though that without a CD burner the transferring process is going to take (gulp) quite a while. Hey if you want, you can use some of my domain space to upload all your files (since I swear I have infinite upload space) and when you get your new laptop all hooked up and whatnot to the internet just download all your files to your new laptop! Damn you IM me and we can talk about this foo! ;) Luv ya lots babe!!!!!!!!!!!!! *tackle super-glomps holds on for dear life like a five-year old child*
