I got a new computer! And wow, does it ever make a difference. My old computer is about 6 years old, and while it's served me mostly faithfully (I suppose) it's had its share of problems. And ever since I upgraded to Windows XP a couple of years ago, I've been plagued with various computer memory problems- no matter how many times Windows claimed to be increasing the size of my virtual memory file, it never seemed to make a whole hell of a lot of difference. But this new computer is pret-ty awesome to use so far. And I think it looks cool, too, which is certainly a plus. I have to admit to being more than a little bit concerned at buying a computer on eBay- certainly the most money I've ever dropped there at one time- if for no other reason than I wouldn't be able to drive down to the store and return it if it had been a piece of crap (or broken). But so far, so good- and it'd better stay that way! Now the only thing left for me to do is transfer all of my stuff from the old one to this one.
I saw the fattest dog today. He was just the kind of pooch I hope to have when I move somewhere that allows pets... a big, cuddly, yellow lab. He was a seriously big boy, with a heavy collar of fat around his neck and a nice belly. So cute! I wanted to take him home to snuggle and feed him treats. Of course, I couldn't. But someday I'll have a furry friend of my own, and he'll end up being one king-sized doggie.
