knit me more time...
Friday, April 08, 2005

Yes, I went to the evil walmart today. I had to go. My aunt got me a gift certificate there for my birthday. Clearly, she doesn't know me very well as anyone who does knows how much I loath walmart. Well, I guess I didn't have to go today. I did it to put off the work I am re-doing b/c my computer died the other day. I actually went to walmart to procrastinate in a new and different way. (And notice that now I am procrastinating again by blogging!) I spent an hour in walmart trying to figure out how to spend $50 bucks. I got one of those usb "jump drives," but with walmart's rolling back prices, it was only $19. I wandered around the store in a near daze. The place is so crammed with stuff it is overwhelming. They had a few different radios in different parts of the store playing-- that's right-- walmart commercials!! I felt like I should have been wearing a tinfoil hat to keep the propaganda out. I ended up with the jump drive, a salad spinner, a nifty battery-operated toothbrush, a notebook, and some not needed but too cheap not to buy tupperware. I feel like there must have been something else I bought, but probably not, just stuff that when you get it home it is like you bought nothing at all. My laptop is going in for repair- they are sending out a box for it today. I have tons to do this weekend, and I lost some work I didn't back up quickly enough, so I am not really pleased with this. My backup computer is my old, orange ibook. It is about 1/20 of the power and memory as my current computer, and I installed the latest operating system on it so it is stretched way too thin and doesn't work so great. Thus, the jump drive to back things up periodically. I am absolutely thrilled with the greenness of the grass. And I sat out on the roof today for a while with some coworkers and the sun felt so good. But, I could feel myself burning. Oh yeah- that's the other thing I bought at walmart- 2 different kinds of spf 45 sunscreen.
