Sorry for the brief hiatus

I've been without a computer since Saturday night. My laptop freaked out and wouldn't turn on. After a trip to Best Buy and a phone call to HP, I discovered that my 'mother board' had a problem. So, the laptop is being sent in and should be done in about 2 weeks. Just for the record, this is the 2nd computer that Camille and Gabby have ruined in just over a year. I don't know what they do or what they download, but they could go into business ruining computers. So, since I would be without a computer for about 2 weeks and I am right in the middle of studying for finals, my dad and I decided that it was time to buy another computer. So, today we went and bought an iMac. It is very luxury. The screen is like 20 inches and there is no "tower", everything is in the monitor which is very cool. I am still getting used to the differences between a Mac and a PC, but the setup was SO easy. Even for someone like me who is mildly challenged when it comes to computers. I am still confused about setting up the printer and transferring my files from my iPod to the iMac, but I'm sure that eventually I'll figure it out. Camille and Gabby aren't allowed to EVER be on this computer. In fact they shouldn't even look at it. They can have the laptop when it gets back. This is definitely a good graduation present. But, my dad assures me that this is not it. Finishing college in 3 years has been hard, but the payoff is worth it!!

In other news, I got a new bedroom set. I seem to like to change my bedding a lot. I think this is the 4th one I've had in about 5 years. I just get bored and I think this is a great way to change things up. I still need to change the headboard and a couple of other things. I'm probably going to get a new bed and armoire and a flat screen. I'm thinking I'll go up to IKEA and see what they have.

So, Christina, now that I have made my room luxury and my bathroom luxury, you can come stay here again and feel like it is a luxury vacation.
So, I'm right in the middle of finals. So far things are looking good. I'll probably pull off some ok grades for this 6-week semester. That's such a joke, everything is crammed!!! I'm off to Vegas on Thursday for my dental simulation thing at UNLV so that should be fun.
I watched the US Open with my dad ALL weekend. He very much enjoyed it, I enjoyed getting to take some much needed naps! I don't understand why he says we have to watch ALL of the coverage, including watching Tiger on the driving range and putting range things, but we aren't allowed to watch the Jazz pre and post-game coverage! Whatever.
Ok, one more thing. If I buy a new iPod I can get a rebate from Apple since I already bought the computer. Only problem is I already have my iPod. But, sometimes I just like to have lots of things, so I might just have to go buy an iPod touch. We'll see.

Love the new computer. Those are so trippy to use. I have only used one once and have to admit I was a little retarded at it. If you get a new ipod you could always sell your old one.

D - cute room! You know I am *lovin* all of the pillows. ;) Savnnah's room is pink and green too, so happy and cheerful.

Shouldn't poor Gabrielle get the new IPOD? Especially since you accused her of losing yours? It's the least you could do . . . ;)
