Two years is a reasonable age for a computer, right?
A reasonable lifetime before being passed on to a father who has been known to crash computers simply by changing the background and thus cannot be trusted with new computers in the household?
I'm guilt tripping myself (yes, it's a verb) about whether or not I should purchase one of these (in flamingo pink, of course).
Why do I need one? Oh, because I'm a geek. Well, I'm a "thinks she's artsy" geek, because not only do I need a faster computer with a better graphics card so that I can further develop my World of Warcraft addiction (currently on hiatus as within thirty minutes of starting to play on my current laptop, I am sent to the "blue screen of death," which threatens to start deleting things at random from my hard drive if I don't behave), but I also want to do more photo editing. I've got Adobe Photoshop (not elements, photoshop...thanks WG) on my computer, but it's waaaaayyy too slow.
Why should I get one? They're ridiculously cheap at the moment, and with the coupon I found, I can get a $1700 (pre-tax) system for $1100 (including tax). And it would make my life oh so much more enjoyable to have a computer that doesn't freak out whenever I try to upload my photos to flickr. Oh, and WG's stoked about doing the research (and found me a $500 off coupon!).
Why shouldn't I get one? Uh, it's two weeks before my birthday, six weeks before Christmas. I've got a best friend's birthday before my own. And I have only *just* started thinking about a budget for Christmas gifts.
Whether or not to switch this sweet blog o'mine over to wordpress and a friend hosted server. I could get my own domain name! pinkcerealandraspberries.com has a nice ring to it, right? But, contrary to some other folks, I love blogger. I love that I get to pick and choose and add random HTML code wherever I so choose. Would I need to learn CSS for wordpress? But I also want to password some posts (oh, the things I could say! haha). Oh, dilemmas.
And finally, the monkey.
Precisely a monkey of a velvet nature.
WG's little sister is a licensed cosmetologist and she works at a place called Velvet Monkey, and I may let her cut my hair when we're in OK.
This is roughly what my hair looks like now:
And this is what I might want it to look like (but the cut is basically just a slightly shorter version of what I have now)
or this (which is still basically the same but about 12 inches shorter than my current 'do)
Help, people. I need help.
