After a week of focusing on others I sucumbbed to the
niceties evils of indulging myself.
In actuality (I’m using that word a lot lately) Sam and I decided to catch up at Morrisons, and it extended to an impromptu visit to Eastland – where we both intended to get our hair cut. We did, although mine looks like nothing’s been done. Not impressed with that. Then we uh, did the expected ‘go shopping thing’ considering our location. I dare say we both spent more than intended. Just Jeans proved too much for my wallet this time – despite me usually being very good. Starbucks has mighty fine chai tea.
Which means I’d better get off my butt and sell some more books shortly.
The one truly useful purchase I made (If we didn’t all have to wear clothes) was a really expensive $8 microphone. Which means that I can now have two sided Skype (VoIP) conversations, or alternatively look like a fool talking at my computer.
I made good use of it last night in a fairly pointless conference call where I made Tom meet Jas and John and Geoff and however that all works. Too many nerds in one place. Perhaps it was a mistake.
Anyway if you care to hear me in person you can shoot me an email – if you don’t have my email you don’t need to hear me in person.
i must agree about starbucks’ chi tea
I was so close to buying a mic the other day. And then I gave myself a talk, which went something along the lines of…”Beth, you spend far too much time sitting at the computer as it is. And if you want to talk to someone, or someone wants to talk to you…then there are phones…*picks up a mic*…$20 could buy that top you just saw…*puts it back down again*”
So basically what I’m trying to say is, well done for spending money on something useful instead of more clothes you don’t need 🙂
Skype is great fun, and so are $8 mics 🙂
