Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Today the post bought me these two



Sooty and Little Cousin Scampi.

The original Sooty is 63 years old - that is several years older than me - which means I have been watching the Sooty Show in various forms all my life.

Scampi is a much newer cast member and is a very naughty bear.

I still have to buy myself a Sweep and a Soo.

I laid down the weedblock yesterday for the picnic table area and we're hoping to get the stone delivered for this weekend. Pics to follow

Oh and, SPOCKED, I'll put the kettle on, tea or coffee?

Or would you rather have a beer?
I expect to spend the day, trekkiedane - so, YES, to all the above

Yeah, I've been on a girly kick lately. Lots of florals, pinks, lace. I also just got a pink tee with lace and gold sequins. Somehow it works for me!

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I bought a Doctor Who book called Hunter's Moon. Haven't started reading yet, because I can read those in a day; but I have to work and I wanted to get my foruming done instead. *lol*

I love it! Totally fun and funky. Would look absolutely hideous on me, though!

Two STAR WARS figures I didn't previously have along with some soda and snacks.

Chocolate covered raisins, a bottle of water and a ticket to American Reunion.

Not the type of film I would normally pay to see, but... it made for a fun, immature girls' night out.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

one of these bad boys...



256gb SSD... bit of a sacrifice on space for speed, but since installing it, i can say it's definitely worth it...

boot time is around 7 seconds now from pressing the power button to windows fully running... installation and program running is a dream... copying files generally runs at about 4 to 5gbps... could probably push that to 6 with some custom bios tweaks, but i'm happy with it as it is

I got more books in the mail today. My mailman is probably cussing me out these days with all the packages I've been receiving.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

After class tonight I expect to pick up my pre-order of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition (Dark Edition) for Xbox 360. The virtual end of the semester for me is next Thursday (all my major remaining projects are due that day), so I won't have time to play it until then but I'm very much looking forward to it.

Back in August, I replaced my aging MacBook with a MacBook Air. I've been constantly surprised at how quickly the SSD performs, and I've been strongly considering the possibility of swapping my desktop computer over to an SSD too.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

i'd say go for it...

the one thing i have noticed that i didn't expect, was a significant temperature drop... I didn't see that one coming, but the inside of my PC is now running about 8c cooler than previously... very interesting considering i've still got 5 x 2TB standard drives in there...
