Obsession du jour

Meet Henry, my obsession du jour. A 10.1″ HP mini-notebook I bought last Christmas. It took me quite a while because I was thinking of so many things such as the size, the brand, and the price. I decided on a netbook because it’s light, it’s cute (it has a cool swirl design on the cover), and meets all my needs as a writer, student, editor, and all around internet bum. Besides, I have a desktop for heavy duty tasks that little Henry can’t do. I was hoping for a Toshiba but a netbook with the same specifications cost a lot more. So far, Henry performs great and I’m in the process of installing much needed programs like iTunes, Limewire, Microsoft Office, and Photoshop.

I woke up early this morning and found this in the living room.

A Samsung 46″ LCD TV in HD. That’s a big ass TV! I had to take a few steps to get to the other side of the box. It’s going to be in my mom’s room but I don’t care because that’s where we watch movies anyway.

Can’t wait to see the actual set! My mom said a repairman would come over tomorrow to attach it to my mom’s wall. Cool!
