Chobits - Processing...Please Wait

So, I bought a laptop last night...


Intel Pentium M Processor 740 (1.73 GHz/2MB Cache/533MHz FSB)
Microsoft Windows XP Media Center 2005 Edition
17 inch UltraSharp Wide Screen UXGA Display with TrueLife
1GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 533MHz 2 Dimm
8x CD/DVD burner (DVD+/-RW DL)
40 GB Hard Drive (5400 RPM)
128MB ATIs Mobility Radeon X300 Video Card
Intel PRO/Wireless 2915 Internal Wireless (802.11 a/b/g)
Dell Wireless 350 Bluetooth
9-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery (80 WHr)
External USB Floppy Drive



Hard Drive's a bit weak, but that'll be the first thing to get replaced as soon as I can find a decent sale. And I really wanted a full-size keyboard with the number pad on the side. No idea why they didn't put one on this model, considering the real estate they have to work with...

Other than that, it looks pretty sweet. ::grins::

Down for the Count

First of all, Happy Birthday to Miwa-san. And Happy Anniversary to he and Yuu-san. Double congrats! ^_^


Today was...a day. Collapse )

At any rate, I started feeling amazingly weak. It started off with me just being unusually tired, but it grew worse and worse as the day progressed. Tough guy that I am, I thought that a few laps on the treadmill would get the blood pumping and make me feel a little more energetic, a little better overall. Instead I drained myself completely. I could barely walk back to the truck, and I could feel myself swerving on the ride home. I almost dozed off several times - pretty much at every stop sign and red light. And while standing on the back steps looking for my house keys, I felt myself tipping to one side. I almost did a faceplant into the cement garage floor. Had enough energy to shower up, but then I sank into a chair and kept nodding off. I never recall actually sleeping, just the jolt of waking up suddenly and the brief confusion of looking around and realizing that it's half an hour later.

Yeah. Prolly a dumb idea to have hit the gym this afternoon. -_-;

Good news though, even with skipping a whole week with my neck/back, I haven't gained any weight (though of course I haven't lost any either). And even better, I suppose, is the fact that I've felt so damn guilty all week because of not hitting the gym. That means that my new daily routine is supposed to include a trip to Powerhouse, and anything but makes me feel like something's missing. I'm glad of that, because I don't want this "no working out" thing to become routine again. It'd be pretty easy to let something like that happen.


Oh, and I fucking love this song. ^_^
