new computer  

I got a new computer yesterday, and I LOVE it! Pretty dumb to get all excited about a new computer, but anyway. It's a zillion times faster than my old one, I got a new keyboard which I love using [I like the way the keys click when I use it. HA], a 56kb modem, bigger screen, and tons more storage space. Yesterday and today, my dad and I spent tranfering all my files over, and thank goodness, nothing got lost in the process. I've heard too many scary stories about stuff going missing in the process of getting a new computer. So...that's my exciting event for the weekend.

I'm hooked on Ebay at the moment. So far, I've brought a couple of Tori Amos CD's ["Under the Pink" and "Boys for Pele"], and a Sarah McLachlan CD ["Fumbling Towards Ecstasy"]. I've wanted to get those CD's for a while, but in the shops, they are like, $30. Even with the exchange rate [Australian dollar worth about 65c of the US dollar] AND postage costs, the CD's are still at least $10-15 cheaper second hand each. As long as they're in good condition and they have no scratches or anything, that's fine with me! But I don't know how long this Ebay addiction will last for - it's a pain having to go and get international money orders from the main post offices, and besides, at this rate, I'll spend all my money that I'm saving for other stuff. But for now, it's fun, and I'm finally getting those CD's.

I know I had more to say...but I really can't remember what it was. *sigh*
