Hella-cool

I am such a lucky duck today. Aside form getting those beautiful orchids today, I also got my new laptop in the mail as well. Strangely, I didn't realize it was coming. I ordered it sometimes last week, after discussing it with Chris and we decided that it would be a good tool for me to have for teaching the graduate courses that I've been teaching. I'm paying for it with some of my grad class money, plus I got a discount for being an adjeunct professor. Very cool. But here's the odd part, after I ordered it, I didn't get an email from the company and when I logged on to the site, my order never showed, so I decided to put the order on the back burner until the school ended and that I could call the computer company and re-order and see if I could get more discounts due to pity. Apparently, the order did go through and here I am in front of my television and using the computer at the same stinkin' time. I am the epitome of mouse potato now. It's awesome. I am so happy that I for Chris a wireless router our my modem at Christmas when he wanted to hook up his x-box to the web.

I have decided that I will not be putting World of Warcraft on this computer because the temptation of playing all the time would be too tempting. This computer is about teaching and communications. That's it!

I am still stunned that I'm typing on this computer while watching about black holes and the Bermuda triangle on the History Channel. Man, am I stoked!

Congrats on the new laptop! That is awesome. I love having mine at home on the weekends so I can play online during commercials.

Not a bad choice in not installing WOW. My friends that play (or played in the past) have that same problem with it.
