Today I...

almost bought a new laptop.

almost drove to Ottawa.


I blame ADD for why neither came to pass.

I blame my own psyche for why I honestly expected them to.

I was mostly craving Ottawa, although the laptop would have been cool, too.

*laments*

Oooo new laptop! Shiny!

The new laptop was linked to the trip, because i_am_a_hannah took mine to Oz and you, know, having a laptop is like having a toothbrush.

I want to. But time off work might be an issue. :(

Wah. One of the good things about my job is it's fairly easy to get time off because of peer switches. The only problem is that I don't get paid when I peer switch until I actually work the switched shift. Which isn't good when you're going to be travelling.

I'd love to go to TIFF, but I probably wouldn't do it by myself. It wouldn't be as fun, and all and I think I actually need to go back to Toronto with someone else so I can maybe actually like it better (I know I missed out on a TON of fun things that would change my attitude). Ottawa, OTOH is good alone because there wouldn't be many people who would want to do the Total Geek Immersion thing, alas.

But was the almost new laptop a MacBook? Because, you know, almost laptops should be.

You need to drive down here sometime. Maybe when it's all brr cold there and not here. We're good at the "not cold" thing.

I thought about driving there. mr_t00by even told me I should go South for a change (for a change? I've been South more than North, just not driving). It's actually a good thing I didn't because um. I ended up not going because I forgot I had to work on Friday.

MacBooks rock. They are also v. expensive. Woe.

But oh so shiny. Actually that is the name of mine. Shiny.

You should listen to mr_t00by! *looks at calendar* October is out, yes? November! November is good! So is December. We will be, like, in the 60s or so then. :)

December might be grand indeed. :) After Christmas, so mr_t00by can go too. Whee!

Also, am going to attempt to reinstall AIM tonight. I have to get in touch with the aforementioned spawn to find out which version to use.
