OK. It's official. I am an internet addict. Our home computer died on Friday and I've been sans internet all weekend. I never realised how much I rely on the internet but once it was gone it all became horribly obvious! Me: "This DVD doesn't have an episode listing on it. I'll go home and look it up on the internet before I buy it" Doh! Trent: "This new X-box game looks interesting but I'll go home and read some reviews on it before I buy it" Doh! Trent: "What do you want to do on Sunday? Should we look up and see what's on?" Doh! Me: "Let's see what's on at the movies" Doh! On and on and on it went! And I wont even mention the GROK withdrawals I was having. So here I am at work after hours (unheard of!) just so I can use the internet.
My internet-free weekend... Friday night we went round to Kathy (my workmate) and John's (her husband). Had a nice BBQ dinner. Sat out on the (undercover) balcony and watched the rain. Then played Trivial Pursuit until late into the night. Trent won - of course! Saturday we went house-hunting. Only looked at a couple of places though so it was fairly relaxed. Then we walked up to the Mexican place for dinner. Had a nice big meal and then wandered home slightly tipsy from Sangria Sunday we sold some old DVDs and books and gave the rest to charity. Did the grocery shopping. Not much else.
I've been thinking about buying myself a PlayStation 2 for Christmas. I'm trying to talk myself out of it because it's a silly idea really. We already have a PC and an X-Box but I don't really play games on either of those. I just keep seeing games I like for PS2. Hmmm, can't afford it anyway really. Gotta pay my car registration instead. Boring!
G'day AC, love your journals. I also confess that I have a sick obsession with the internet - you're not the only one! I'll give you a bit of advice on the Playstation 2... Get it. They're fun! They also play DVDs, so I can alternate in my unhealthy lifestyle playing Tomb Raider and watching The Goodies whenever I want! he he he
