Before I get to share with you the awesomeness that was this day I shall very shamelessly promote my Icon Commissions
since I could REALLY use some extra cash over the next couple months. ;w; You'll find out why if you continue reading. ^^
So the plan for today was going to a nearby shopping center with my hubby *ripley4O77
to see if I might still get lucky and find a laptop that didn't have me sacrificing either power or screen size.
About an hour before we left the doorbell rings and what did the lovely mailwoman bring me? After a whole month of waiting I finally received my two Darksiders artbooks and the novel. You can sneak a peek here:
Gosh the artbooks are beyond amazing, they are so incredibly fat, filled to the last page with fantastic sketches and artworks and they smell delicious. Yes, I sniff books.
After a very quick browsing session we left for the shopping center though which was quite the disappointment when it comes to laptops. My hubby found out that there's a store over there that sells the Mini Skylanders though if you buy a Giant. So eventually we'll see that we can get Whisper Elf and Trigger Snappy.
Since it was still early we decided to go to another shopping center, a bit further away. I found this gorgeously comfy pair of Adidas track pants there on sale which means I have no excuse anymore now and will as soon as possible start going for regular running sessions through the awesome nearby park. Root for Vala, because she's a horrible lazy ass! >_>
After regaining some strength with some delicious subways (best fast food ever!) we went to another hardware/electronics store and lo and behold, I actually stumbled across a laptop that has everything I want and doesn't cost the world. ;w;
It's a tiny bit above our presumed budget (which is the reason why money will be way too tight over the next couple months and Vala will be feeling super guilty even though her hubby will keep telling her not to) but oh my gosh, it was definitely love at first sight.
So by this time tomorrow I shall be the proud mommy of a beautiful Asus notebook with quadcore, a Geforce GT 635M and a more than reasonable screensize of 17,3". Which I can totally live with.
Expect not to see a lot of me over the next couple of weeks since I will be taking a looooong awaited vacation in the north of Tamriel.
