I want Clark and Chloë to end up together forever and have little half-alien babies.

And yes, I should be revising, but for the past two weeks I have allowed myself to watch an episode of Smallville while on my lunch break. :D

Ugh, also, my pc really is annoying me a LOT. It's just so noisy and slows right down if I try to do anything - I can't even virus scan it at the moment 'cause it takes hours and I can't do anything else while it's scanning, which is no use when I need to work.

I know its not my birthday till the 26th, but I might ring my mum tonight and ask if I can order my new pc now instead of waiting. I have enough money in my bank account, and I'm paying for most of it anyway. I don't even know how much money my parents are going to contribute towards it. The specification I have it at currently is £446 including VAT and delivery, which is a pretty awesome price for what I'm getting. I'm hoping that my mum and dad will be able to give me about £100 and maybe maybe my grandparents will give me that much as well, so that's only £20050 (LOL I actually wrote 20050 instead of 250!) £250 of my own money that I'll be spending which is nice.

I need a new printer as well though, really, 'cause mine is broken - it still prints, but it randomly loses connection and the paper tray is broken so I can only put a few sheets in at a time or it collapses. :( Which is a shame 'cause I really love my printer. Especially 'cause my parents bought it - my grandad give me £400 after my A levels with which to buy a pc, so that bought the pc, monitor, speakers, but wasn't enough for a printer. And even though for my A levels my parents had already taken me out for a meal, bought me some straighteners and some new shoes, my dad insisted on buying me my printer as well. I am so spoiled <3. So I am sad that it's gotten all broken, alas. I can probably cope with it for a while longer, particularly because I don't really need it anymore seeing as I am finishing uni. Next year Joel will probably find it quite handy though for printing essays and uni things, especially because he won't live right next door to the LJMU library anymore.

My speakers are broken too which is reeeallly really annoying 'cause I only bought them a few months ago after my original speakers broke, but I don't know what I did with the receipt so I can't return them. :( I wish that when I got new ones after my old ones stopped working that I had bought the same ones as my old ones. I loved those speakers and even though they were cheap they lasted me over 2 years of really loud music playing, whereas these ones lasted me approximately two months. GRRRR. Luckily my monitor has built in speakers so it's not like I have no sound, but they're pretty lame when I'm used to having a subwoofer and stuff.

I'd quite like a new monitor too, though. There's nothing really wrong with this one, I just like having new shinies. :D I am tempted to try setting up my hd tv as a monitor, actually. But the screen is smaller than on my monitor and also I don't really like widescreen monitors. I think just because I am used to making wallpapers for non-widescreen, lol. :D But we'll see.

I can't wait till I can set up my pc on a proper computer desk in my new flat, instead of the ridiculous set up I have here - I'm pretty sure that my printer and speakers are broken 'cause they're on the floor under the desk and I can't help kicking them sometimes, but there's nowhere else for me to put them. :( And it's pretty uncomfortable. There's a pc desk in the living room of the flat, though, so my pc is going to go there and Joel is going to keep his pc in his bedroom 'cause he's having the bigger bedroom. Ah, we're going to have so much space. I can't wait, after two years of living in this poky little attic room, to be able to spread myself out a bit. :D

Eeeek I'm just so excited excited excited.

Aaaand now I have to go revise.

Hehe your computer sounds a bit like one of my apartment mate's machines; she has some wonky problems that cause it to crash sporadically every few days, and it *dies* the second she opens more than five programs. Can I ask what laptop you're thinking about? I've been dreaming about buying a new one for years now, but with the economy tanking, it's going to have to remain an unfulfilled dream a little while longer.

Wow that site sounds spiffy! I've been considering getting a desktop instead of a laptop, but that won't be practical until I'm done with grad school. If technology didn't move so fast, I'd start picking some components up today though. A few friends and I are interning at Silicon Valley firms this summer (cheap components, yay!), but by the time I'm ready to build the machine, I bet they'll all be obsolete.

Hurrah, another desktop fan. Every so often I wonder if I'm desperately uncool for not being seduced by laptops but then I remember that a) the kind of spec I'd want in a laptop would cost loads b) if something goes wrong with my desktop or if I feel like upgrading it I can just replace a component and c) I'm running a dual monitor setup with one 19" monitor and one 22" widescreen TV/monitor and well, they're not.
