It's HERE!

Our Nexus 7s arrived yesterday. I spent the afternoon figuring it out. I can see how this will be pretty useful. I'm really enjoying it, athough for reading I will stick with my Kindle for the most part. This tablet though will be great for web surfing in bed and when I'm in airports or whatnot.

I like that it's not humongous like the ones I typically see. This one is small enough that I can slip it into my normal purse without having to carry a gigantic bag. My purses do tend to be on the larger side, but not really gargantuan. I mean they are obviously purses, not briefcases.

The price was definitely right too. So anyone looking for a tablet, this one seems pretty good!

The good: I've lost 2 pounds this past week so my low-carbing is working. YEA! I like the low-carb diet (I'm doing Atkins, specifically) because I'm not hungry all the time.

I finished The Hunger Games and have started the second one. Catching Fire I think is the title. I did enjoy it, more than I thought I would. The second one is starting out very tensely!

The bad: My daughter's husband's deployment has been extended indefinitely. He was supposed to come home this weekend.

The ugly: Pollen. Pollen counts are at record highs and my sinuses are pretty upset about it. As are my eyes. Even my Claritin is barely keeping the symptoms at bay. I wonder if I should switch to Allegra?

Since my new laptop (which I have affectionatly named "The Beast") is so much bigger than my old laptop, it doesn't fit into my bag, so I've been perusing Amazon to find a new one. You can't find anything but boring black around here, which...blah. I'm a fuchsia girl! Anyway, what do y'all think about this one?

I just heard about this book: The Warcraft Civilization: Social Science in a Virtual World. Part of the blurb states: "WoW can be seen not only as an allegory of today but also as a virtual prototype of tomorrow, of a real human future".

I have to say, if WoW is what the future is going to be like, I think I'm going to opt out. Can you imagine if daily discourse everywhere was like Trade chat? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!
