Half way through the work week. This weekend will bring some use of muscles and beer drinking! Corinne is moving so I am going to attempt to lift a few boxes and do whatever I can to help. I am so not strong. But friends, beer, and pizza is a fantastic excuse to get out of the house.
I haven’t done the Grouse Grind yet because my friend Sylvia decided to have a garage sale instead. She made about $500 selling her stuff! Mental… she must have had good junk eh! Hopefully I will do that torturous hike soon.
Since I’ve been without a computer for a few days, I have spent my time playing Zelda: Spirit Tracks on my DS while travelling to/from work. I finally started getting into when I got my NEW computer.
I went to Future Shop and got an “open-box” netbook for $209. Score! … but not really. It was overheating after being plugged in for 5 minutes. Hmmm, it’s no wonder someone already returned it.
I returned it the next day and went to Best Buy for a fantastic little Mini Hp netbook. I ❤ it! It’s beautiful. I installed Mozilla and Open Office (both free software which I couldn’t do without). The employees at Best Buy don’t work on commission so they don’t push to add on products. It makes the shopping a bit better. At Future Shop you are haggled and there’s always a “sweet” deal, which is usually rubbish, but the employees need to make a sale cause they work on commission.
My new HP was a bit more expensive, but totally worth it. It’s way prettier than my old netbook and I love all the new little features it comes with (Windows 7) 😀
Thus, my blog posts should be more frequent now.
Ps. Zelda: Spirit Tracks is the perfect game to play while taking the train to work. I get to pull the horn and travel where ever I want. It’s totally chessy but I love driving the train while on the train. Plus, the story line is cute and easy to follow. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has a DS and who has played previous Zelda games. It’s totally worth playing.
So happy to be back … and thank you to everyone who continued to check out my blog even while I was away ❤ 🙂
