My wife gets a New Computer and I get a Blu-ray

It was an expensive day yesterday and fucking hot to boot. It hit 101 degrees here and the heat index was suppose to be 114 degrees. It was a day of into the car, into the store, into the car, into the mall, into the car and back home.

We went to Fyes for the big Anime sale which turned out to be a dud. They did have a section of 50% off stuff, but I pretty much had seen everything :P~~~~ The rest of the stuff of course was overpriced including the Used DVD's. As an example, why would anyone pay $7.99 to $10.99 for a Used SD Gundam DVD? "Zaku-Zaku", too expensive "Zaku".

I did however get something from Borders. I picked up Ghost in the Shell 2.0 on Blu-ray. I had a coupon for 40% off, so figured I check it out. They did quite a few enhancements to the original with some damn fine detailed CGI. I would have to recommend this to any GitS fan as an addition to their collection. Kind of reminded me of when George Lucas did a re-make of the first 3 Star Wars films.

I will not be hitting Otakon this year waaaaaaaaaaaaaa! It was going to be first time, but my car to 1/2 my funds way due to a new radiator. Now the reminder of what was left over went to my wife's new computer. She has been nagging me for a new computer as the laptops she has are so damn slow. While out shopping yesterday, we hit Best Buy and she found a desktop she wanted. Honest, a new computer because her Facebook apps don't load fast enough. Can't pick the crops in Farmville or make the soup in Cafe World in time to make sure I do my kills on Mafia Wars.

My only ray of sunshine was this picture she took of her computer screen. She is running Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit and I also loaded Office 2007. This photo tells it all:

Yes you read that right 32989 updates - OMFG, love to see how better it is working now!


  1. Bro, I really envy you for having bluray player and now the latest import of of computer for your wife (also for yourself perhaps...Hee! Hee!). How sweet of you buddy!

  2. Yeah, and its not JUST for Facebook, thank you very much. But since I can't really use yours, since well it's yours, and since the 5+ year old laptops can't load ANYTHING faster than a snails pace, yeah I am now in love with the new computer! Maybe I can actually get something done WHILE I tweet, use facebook and blog.

  3. @ Dennis ~ I had to get her one so that I could have mine back

    @Nyven ~ Hi Honey!

  4. Heh, I got hardcore attacked by viruses last week. I was running XP and finally switched to Win 7. It's a great improvement.

  5. Nice combo, new comp + blu ray 8D
    FFF YEAH! haha that must be a plus for you if you watch anime ^^

  6. Blu-ray is really nice. I wouldn't have gone out of my way to buy one, but now that I have one (because of my PS3) I really love blu-ray over dvd.


Don't just Read and Run, leave me a note about what you thought of the blog!
