.. they all. fall. down.
I can’t help but feel a little ashamed – this list started out as a way to track those utterly impossible pie in the sky oh look here’s an extra pile of money that I absolutely no other use for kind of things that maybe I would get someday if I happened to find a sugar daddy or my mother finally won the lottery, but I’m slowly making my way through it as I end up with new toys.
Not that I’m complaining, mind you.
As with all of the above purchases, a great deal of justification and fast talking went into this. I got a surprise bonus at work today, which was nice. Ed is getting a bonus next month, and has promised me a chunk of it to do whatever I want. Those two together equaled two thirds of the iMac I’d been eyeing for MONTHS, and after a morning full of waffling and doubt, I took the plunge.
Basically, it was either this or an iPad. I *know* I don’t need an iPad – I’ve promised myself I would wait until the second generation if I get one at all, but I really and truly don’t need one – and my laptop is starting to chunk and do weird things, and it pretty desperately needs a reformat that I don’t dare do. I’ve also really wanted to set up a media PC for quite some time, and now that I have three episodes of Glee to catch up on, it’s as good a time as any.
Now, what am I going to name my Mac?!
