New computer

Just got home after 10+ hours in the car. My knees are cemented at a 90 degree angle from all the sitting. But, we signed a lease and picked up a brother from school, so it was a successful trip. And waiting for us when we got home was our new computer…


I can’t overemphasize the importance of this moment. That Guy also bought himself an Orange Box with his birthday money from last January (thanks, Takahashis!), and he is giddy with joy. I can LITERALLY see little champagne bubbles of happiness floating out his ears. Now all we have to do is wait for the aforementioned brother to build it, and we’ll be in business. I suspect it’ll be done before I get up tomorrow morning – the boxes have already been unpacked and the room reeks of geekiness.


Argh, I’m braindead. Good night.

  1. What’s an orange box?

  2. Uh oh, now David wants a copy…

  3. They aren’t too bad, just 30 bucks at Target. But they have the potential to be a huge time drain, of course. David can come over and use ours while we watch the kids and you nap. 🙂

  4. If Orange Box includes CounterStrike, I am totally going to pwn you. Or not…turns out video games, like most things in life, take lots of practice for you to be good enough to enjoy them.

  5. Sorry, no Counterstrike. That Guy says he can still probably be pwned. Or pwnd.

    That’s not a real word.
