There are moments when I think I'm going go to insane in this cramped, messy, little apartment with it's too-small or too-cheap or too-cluttered furniture.

And then I find a family of baby spiders crawling up my arm and I KNOW I am.

The day I see a mouse is the day I pack my bags.

Gifting yourself.

I'm sure I can't be the only person in the world who does this, but...

June is my birthday month.

As as such, I am excited about what to get myself.

Is that ridiculous? I mean, I would be excited about whatever Jay was going to get me, ordinarily. Except he dropped some MAJOR cash to take me to NYC very recently, and I considered that an early birthday present--because all I had originally planned to ask for was a weekend in NYC anyway!
(Us at the Seinfield/Suzanne Vega "Tom's Diner". Be slightly jealous. But only slightly.)

Anyway, this year is no different and I want to get myself something for my birthday. I'm salivating over a refurbished MacBook at the moment...saving my money and hoping someone doesn't snap it up before I can get to it! My old old laptop (Dell) is such a piece of crap it overheats if it's on more than a half hour, and I just recently discovered that my netbook is partially broken. It looks like the battery literally exploded. I'm still using it, but the battery won't work at all.
