Oh Man, I Wants

Josh and I were looking at computer desks for the laptop yesterday at Walmart. I found one that I absolutely adored. Well, they have little shelves that make me wish and wish for another printer that was all mine. One where I don’t have to sit on the floor and hook it up through the USB.

Well, Lotus wrote a review on the Epson Artisan 800 Wireless Photo All-in-One Printer, and holy crap on a cracker! I wants. First off, it’s just so pretty. And the examples that she showed? I wants!! The biggest thing for me is that it’s WiFi, which means I can print from the laptop without having to hook it up to the laptop. It’s also got the card-readers, so I can print straight from the card, if I want. 🙂

I found out that Blissfully Domestic was giving away a free Epson Artisan 800, and I had to enroll in that drawing. I’m hoping no one else does, so that I have a shot, but if not, I’ve at least done everything I can to try and get a shot.

Wish me luck!!

Ain’t That the Way it Always Goes?

I just got an e-mail from Walmart that makes me wish the credit cards were paid off? Why?

Because of this: PlayStation 3 Blu-ray Entertainment Value Bundle! Price: $488.00. Yes, I said $488.
PlayStation 3 Blu-ray Entertainment Value Bundle includes:
* PlayStation 3 80GB Console
* Sony Blu-ray Remote
* Your choice of two (2) PlayStation 3 games
* Your choice of four (4) Blu-ray movies
Holy crap!!
From the choices, I would have to choose:
Games: LEGO Star Wars: Complete Saga and Madden ‘07, though Josh would prefer 08 🙂
Movies: A Knight’s Tale (Widescreen), 50 First Dates (Blu-ray), Underworld (Blu-ray), and The Legend of Zorro (Blu-ray)

Stupid economy. Ruining my plans again 🙁

One Hour Down

Well, I’m one hour into NaNoWriMo, and I’ve written 785 words. :w00t: Great start, I would say. If I write for five hours a day, that would get me to, hmm, let’s see:

785 x 5 x 30 = 117,750 words

Holy crap on a cracker!!

Yeah, I don’t think I’ll end up with that, but, :w00t:, that’s a great start. Now, though, I think it’s time for my bedtime. It’s 1am here in Topeka, tomorrow is Saturday, and I’ve got 2 sick kiddos 🙁

Oh, and I’ll be nice 😛

Current Title: Panther Dreams

Brief Synopsis, straight from my NaNo page:

Two were-panthers finally find their way in a world that’s unusual, yet common.

Excerpt:

This was the day that Adrienne Karahalios always dreaded. Bill-paying day, checkbook balancing day, invoice-checking day. Who’s brilliant idea was it to make that day always fall on the first day of the month? Seriously? There had to be a better way of spending the first day of every month when you own a business, other than this. Well, at least she only really had to do it once a month. It might be boring as hell, but at least it was usually a good excuse for locking out the world. It gave her less time to think about Osias Kallas and what the heck he was doing back in New Orleans after swearing never to return.

Adri shook her head, her black hair curling slightly in the humidity as she did so. Even with the air conditioner on full-blast, the room was stuffy. She leaned back in her leather office chair, comfy thing that it was, and took a deep breath. It was great to be back in New Orleans, back with her friends, and the ones who became part of her family, but Osias returning was throwing a wrench in her life, her plans, everything. She closed her icy-blue eyes and tried to block out the thoughts of Osias. She needed to get this paperwork done so she could get back to the fun part of running her boutique: the customers and the thrill of a sale.

I Has the Insanity

Yesterday, I signed up for NaBloPoMo. Nope, I swear, I’m not insane. Okay, maybe I am. On top of NaNoWriMo, I’ve got to be absolutely out of my mind :fryingpan:

Last night, I went to the “How to Write a Novel in 30 Days” introduction for the Topeka area of NaNo. I drug along Julie to the Topeka Public Library. I’ve never been to it, and holy crap on a stick, that place is f’ing HUGE!! I’m in love with it. And me, being me, I gots my library card, too 🙂 :w00t:

Now I’m off to do more and more pre-writing, and maybe post a few times on the NaNo forums. I’m hoping some of my bloggie readers are doing NaNo this year and will want to join in some writing contests (word wars and things). If so, here are my contacts:

AIM: sarahnano
MSN: sarah.nano@live.com
YIM: perfect_dreams16

The AIM and MSN are for NaNo only. YIM is for whatever, including NaNo 🙂
