I totally overslept today. And, not just like an hour or so, I mean, I didn't get up until 3:30 in the afternoon. My parents woke me up with a phone call regarding a laptop purchase. I have repeatedly told them I could probably get them a good deal online, but they insist on shopping in a retail environment. Fine.
I suggested a netbook, but my mom says the screen is too small. Fine. Honestly, it's exactly what she needs. These are people for whom WebTV was created. So, they call and want to know what a good one is, blah blah blah. I say, ok, what are you looking at, my dad tells me one thing and I tell him, noooooo run away, run run run. How about this one? Ok, sure, sounds like a decent price, good RAM, good memory. Well, for $100 more, we can get a 3 GB RAM instead of 2. Um...you don't need it. Then my mom chimes in, "But, I want to write letters!" YOU DON'T NEED AN EXTRA GIG OF MEMORY FOR WORD PROCESSING!!!!
Letter writing is serious business. Although, I have no idea who she is writing since she can't even call her father unless she wants money.
Right, so, I hear from one of my aunts that they are planning on coming out here in August. It has somehow fallen onto my shoulders to procure an airplane ticket for my mother. Yet, no one will give me dates. Um, hellooooo, I need to know when you are thinking about coming out, something more definite than August. Great, the whole month? I would DIE if it was a month with my mother. OH dear god in heaven, I would shoot myself.
April, will you take the cats if I die? Thanks. And, I'll let you know where the porn is so you can destroy it. You know, I have a rep to keep. :)
Needless to say, I didn't get done half the things I wanted to get done, but I'm mostly okay with that. It's off to bed soon, I can get up at a reasonable time tomorrow, get to kinko's/fedex, get that shipped off to my mom and then head to corporate to drop off some invoices that I dropped in my car, oops and fill out some paperwork for other things. I do want to ask D some questions, though. regarding investors, etc.
You know, I should make lists, but I would just lose them.
Also, Jon Stewart is so dreamy. Mmmmm
