We got back around 4 and the party began. My uncle came over with his dog, Sport, and we hung out in the backyard for a bit. Shelby swam -- nutty kid. It has to be a lot warmer than it was today for me to even think about jumping into chilly water. Of course, for me, chilly is anything under about 82 degrees F.
Anyway, I got some really really awesome presents from my family. My mom and dad got me some beautiful diamond earings, star-shaped and sparkly and a girl's best friend. Well, maybe second-best, because my aunt and uncle got me... a new laptop!
Yes, many of you no doubt are aware of the epic struggle between myself and my sucky Compaq laptop... otherwise known as the laptop from hell and various other epithets. But my new baby... the baby I'm on right now... is a Dell Inspiron 9100: 3.2-GHz desktop Pentium 4, 1,024MB DDR RAM, 60GB 7,200-rpm hard drive, 128MB ATI Radeon 9700, Dell TrueMobile 802.11g wireless, DVD+RW drive; four USB 2.0 ports, one FireWire port, 15.4-inch LCD WUXGA, Windows XP Home Edition
Ha... I don't even know what half of that means!z But the screen is clear and giganticly massive and it's fast and has as much HD space as my desktop! Sure, it's a little heavy, but that'll just give me a reason to start hitting the gym :D
*hugs her baby and thinks that the kittens are going to get jealous*
I've also just signed up for my new domain with PowWeb -- say hello to SalmonCzar.net! It's not up and running yet, obviously, since the 'paperwork' will take a day or two, but it's nice knowing that I have a home on the web again. Or will. Or whatever.
Man, I need to graduate from college more often.
Speaking of, the pics will hopefully be up tomorrow. The only other thing on my to-do list is to tidy up my room, which is starting to have that 'freshly-bombed' look.
