Well, part of the reason. The main reason, the tower, is on order & I should have in a few days. But talk about ouch in the pocket. Necessary: yes. Super-nice & shiny: yes. Good reason to start budgeting my purchases better: yes.
(PS: also yes, that's Frisky in the background. In the middle of everything as usual.)
Of course, as you know, it's not like I don't have plenty of unworns to see me through this rough time. And I have decided that I will still place my planned Konad order, but not until after I do my taxes & get my refund. Depending on how much I end up getting back I may also allow myself an online order of some holo polish I have been lemming since I saw them when I started reading blogs. But no more "just happening" to walk by the polish when I go pick up my prescriptions or "just glancing" at the polish when I'm at Target for toothpaste.
I'm both looking forward & dreading the new computer's arrival. I like my old computer. I'm not looking forward to Vista, although I am interesting in updated Word, since I got Office 2007, not to mention how can anything not be pretty cool on a 24" monitor? I will post more pics, some before & afters, once I have it set up - the monitor will fit in my current desk but just barely. I got the specs from online & measured before I bought it lol.
Thanks for reading.
