Apparently just me walking down to the end of the driveway and retriving the trash can is enough of a spectacle that the smarmy british asshole down the street feels the need to stop, put his hands on his hips and glare at me through the whole process. so I wonder what a bubble parade would do for him.
I've lived near people I didn't like before. And I treated them much the same way I treat these assholes now. I ignore them. The only people in the neighborhood who haven't let dirty looks or angry tirades be the sum total of their interaction with me and Karl are the next door neighbors. She actually had a little chat with me one day and has always at least been polite to Karl. Whenever the man sees Karl, and Karl waves he waves back and almost seems to smile a little. It's nice.
I don't expect to be invited to any picnics, but they're at least polite.
I don't know *why* I would be suprised at a street full of upper middle class white people being assholes... but I am.
For my ailing computer Karl is going to try to make it functional for the next bit of time while I need it for work and then I'll be picking out parts and buying the pieces so he can assemble a brand spanking new computer for me.
I'm trying to decide on a case.
At the moment, before having read some Tom's hardware guide reviews that I'll be reading shortly, I'm torn between two different colors of the same case.
I either want the black one
Or the Obnoxious green one
If I got the black one, I could put any sort of lighting in it I wanted.. but if I get the green one, I'd want to stick to an orange/pink/red color scheme for the guts to just make it that much more obnoxious.
I dunno... I need to read this reviews and maybe look around at some other catalogs and see if anything else catches my eye. As it it, though, I think I've kind of settled on that chenming 601.
I have way too many goals for myself for the day and an extreme lack of motivation. Heh. It's sort of nice actually.
