||A shoppin' we will go
Posted on January 21st, 2010
|Today we made a trip out to various local stores to pick up some new furniture for my room. It's past time that I get a new chair, and the old computer needs to be on a shelf or it'll overheat.
We were going to get the chair at Office Max, but the staff was unable to locate the one we wanted in their inventory. We waited a good 45 minutes while they looked, but while their computer said 6 were in stock, none were to be found. We ended up getting the chair at staples.
Afterwords, mom sprang for lunch at the buffet.
I spent the afternoon assembling the chair and wrapping up installations on the new computer. One point of interest is that I'll be using KolourPaint instead of MS Paint to do Background Service, and one benefit of that is that KolourPaint can remember palettes: Background Service will be in color once again starting at comic 132.
The last hour was spent tracking down some odd results on my site's statistics pages and cleaning them up.
Lastly, I give you the strange find of the month, the Vulgar Comparative Metaphor FAQ. This probably throws my "reduce swearing" resolution out the window, but it's pretty funny.
