Almost there...

Friday, September 28, 2001

I got a new toy in the mail today. Actually I've gotten new toys in the mail almost every day at work this week. First I got a new backpack that I bought from Overstock.com. When we signed up for AT&T@Home service, we got a $25 gift certificate. I needed a new bag anyway, so voila! $2.90 later, I've got a groovy new little pack that's a bit more stylish than the green monster I have been toting. And though I was expecting shipping delays, it got here three days after I ordered it. Woohoo! So a couple days later I got a new book - Javascript - The Definitive Guide. I found that used online at Albris. Then I finally got the Toad the Wet Sprocket CD I ordered from half.com back in July. And the next day I got the Romeo and Juliet vol. 2 soundtrack I ordered from half.com just the other day. Then the other night when I was working stupid late, I ordered a Gymnastik Ball to sit on at work. So that's the new toy that started this treatise. I'm bouncing on it right now. Boingy boingy boingy! I started up blowing it up with my own two lungs, but luckily Ty had a really cool hand pump and I finished filling it in less than five minutes. And according to our admin, my new office chair should be here sometime next week! I am consumer! Here me shop! K-ching! Luckily, my project is paying for a whole lot of it. I guess I'm doing my part for our economy too. Actually, I'm just getting some really cool stuff, and I'm really glad the web exists because I wouldn't be buying half of it if it weren't for the ability to shop online.
