What a wonderful synergy of delivers at my home and work today– I made a rare midday run back to my apartment, where I found that my SATA cables had arrived by mail. The FedEx doortag that I was hoping to see wasn’t there yet, but things got even better very quickly: I was in the house about five minutes, making a sandwich, when the doorbell rang and the dude dropped off my replacement phone.
At work, the UPS guy dropped off my new harddrive and video card to get the TV box rokkin once again– I am looking forward to being able to watch my Internetty TV on a normal-sized television. From the couch. It WILL ROCK.
I think it’s fair to say that Dave and I try to maintain a modicum of weirdnessnon-normalcy uniqueness in our lives. We were talking a little this morning about how I’ve updated the ringer on my phone to a naval general alarm you might hear on a surface vessel, and he was planning to use the “Cliff Hangers” song from the Price Is Right on his. Then Dave struck gold on the UTubes!
Not too much to report for this Thursday on a personal level. Ohh– here’s something: I did have a little “phone envy” when Michelle finally got her LG Voyager and I had a chance to play with it. I did NOT opt for that phone back in August when I was shopping because I thought the touch screen would be a hassle for me to use. After spending some time with hers, it seems like that probably wouldn’t be the case. Ah, well. In a couple years, there’ll probably be an even better and more affordable “all-touch-screen” option on the market (LG’s Dare is just too pricey at this point).
I heard some news about a friend that I apparently could have gotten earlier if only I was out there on the stupid Facebook. I have considered the possibility of trolling those pages just to hear from people or find out the latest news, but I haven’t brought myself to do it yet. At this point, it’s still just a random consideration.
