CPU envy

January 23, 2004

Thor: (Name) has an Alienware computer. I want one.
Me: OK. (see how easy I am to live with? In reality, my mind is already taking parts from his soon-to-be-discarded PC to pump up my own)
Thor: Hmm….maybe I’ll just upgrade my own.
Me: (still thinking of the parts) Why don’t you build one? I heard you can really get a bitching system and save tons of cash from not buying one premade.
Thor: That’s hard.
Me: Oh, it can’t be hard!
Thor: Then, why don’t you build one for you?
Me: Well..well…maybe I will!!

And that’s how I stumbled across my current hobby, crawling through web sites for PC parts. Mind you, I’ve never built a PC from scratch before. Let’s repeat that for you. I’ve never built a PC from scratch before.

It’s going to have a SUPER-cool case. That glows! And has a temperature indicator! And maybe something that spins!

But first I need the proper shirt


Hey Hey Hey! It’s the Friday Five!

At this moment, what is your favorite…

1. …song?
Gotta be Outkast’s “Hey Ya!” I swear, when I hear that song I want to jump up on the nearest table and “shake it like a polaroid picture.”

2. …food?
Cheesesteak, with fried onions and ketchup.

3. …tv show?
Tough question. I don’t really watch TV, but if “Mail Call” is on, I will stop dead in my tracks to watch. I betcha Gunny had a lot of women in his day. whoa…there’s a Gunny bobblehead doll out there now…must…resist!!”

4. …scent?
Cheesesteak, with fried onions and ketchup. That’s tied with “T Girl.” But I wear neither of those scents.

5. …quote?
Howard Dean’s “Yeeaaaaarrrrghhh!” quote. I think I’m going to write it on my whiteboard next week at work. And every time I do something right, I’ll let out a Yeeeaaarrrgh! I’ll be tired of it in a week though, and go back to my “Sweet Merciful Crap!” standby.
