Lappy 2

This week I lost my loyal companion of nearly four years. Yes, that’s right, my HP DV1000 notebook pc, better know to those who loved her as “lappy,” has died. She’s been on life support for so long, I can only imagine how painful the last few months were for her. But I know she’s in a better place… Well, she’s just up on a shelf right now, but you get the idea.

However, as they say, life must go on.

Let me introduce you to the newest addition to my family: The Lappy 2

She’s a sleek sexy HP Pavilion DV2715, with an AMD Turion 64 X2 processor, a 160 GB hard drive, 2 gigs of DDR2 ram, a LightScribe 8X DVD±RW, a GeForce 7150M graphics card, a 14.1″ WXGA high def display, and Windows Vista Home Premium. This lovely lady has the looks to turn heads and power to back it up.

Now if you’ll excuse me, we’d like to have some alone time to get to know each other better.

My apartment is an unbelievable fire hazard…

When I said my furniture was made of cardboard, I thought I was exaggerating. That was, until I kick the leg of my coffee table for the thousandth time and it rips off to reveal this:

Holy shit. I thought it was at worst pressed sawdust. Turns out it’s honeycombed cardboard. I swear, things these days are built just sturdy enough so they don’t collapse under their own weight. Anything more isn’t cost effective.

I guess that’s what I get for buying a coffee table for $25 at Wal-Mart…
