I have a job, be it a low paying one

Filed under: .in need of a life. @ 22:25

.continuing with the affluent theme, i’ve also tentatively decided to try and buy 3 or 4 cds and 1 or 2 dvds every month for the rest of my life (probably used). .i don’t think this will be particularly difficult (unless i get into some sort of budget crunch – but who needs car insurance, medications, or retirement funds?) except that i am in desperate need of ideas and recommendations, especially for music and pre-mid-nineties movies. ?any suggestions? .proselytizing your personal favorites is fine.


spending money

Filed under: .in need of a life. @ 22:26

.i’ve purchased a digital camera: a minolta dimage xt. .got it online for ~$220, but it hasn’t come in the mail yet. .to go with, i also bought a bonzai usb flash drive and a 256 mb sd memory card. .i’m pretty excited to try the bad boy out. .pictures are supposed to be quite good (though not excellent) and it’s pretty freakin small (though not the smallest). .my only problem is that i have very little hdd space left on my 5 year old quantex laptop, leading me to really want to buy a new computer. .the ideal: a 15″ 1.25 ghz apple powerbook w/ superdrive. .the problem: ~$2230. .and a 20 mb ipod thrown in for good measure (~$370). .(btw, aren’t those ipod minis slick? You just know there’s going to be commercials featuring mini coopers and ipod minis). .after using and promoting pc architecture since the late 80’s, i am ready to switch. .apple’s always had a good interface, and the unix driven os x has finally made me change teams. .well almost. .too bad i’m poor. .my current plan is to splurge on a laptop as some sort of “reward” after i join a lab.


xmas and new years 03-04

.went home to moscow on the 16th. .very wierd to be home so early and even stranger to come back to school so soon (jan 5th). .but an enjoyable break no less. .got to hang out with some hs friends and basically just be lazy at home. .after xmas, on the 27th, we (the fam) drove over to seattle to visit my gramma and the rest of my dad’s side (an annual tradition). .ended up spending new years with lincoln (though didn’t get to see chana). .good times all around
