Toys arrive.

I went over to UPS to pick up my old computer.

Pain in the butt to find, and when I called, they gave me wrong directions to it. I found it entirely on accident, and after I discovered where it was, I realized just how way off their directions were.

So, I give the lady my shipping slip and last name, and she goes in back to look for it. Then she comes out with a box, and places it on the counter. I'm a little confused at this point, because the box isn't what I expected. First of all, it's flatter. Secondly, my Dad (who's shipping my old computer to me) said he used the original box it came in. . . and this isn't it. Unfortunately, before I got a chance to question the lady on it, she turned around and went back into the shipping room. It was then that I looked at the address on the box and saw that it was in for me.

She then brought out my old computer, and as she was putting that down, I noticed the Sender's name on the other box. "Dell".

At this point I got really happy, and the lady behind the counter started giving me weird looks. ;-)

It must have arrived there, and before they even tried to deliver it, she found it. Which also means I don't have to make a trip all the way back there. Of course, most importantly, I know have my new laptop to play with. ;-)

Now, if luck is really with me, my RAM will arrive today, too. <g>

Luck holds.

All of 10 minutes after writing my last entry, the IBM mail guy came by with a present for me, and my RAM has arrived.

And it's Friday.

Could today get any better? ;-)

This sucks.

Okay, this really annoys me. I've just found out that Eidos, the console video game maker, has decided to cancel the Dreamcast version of Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2

I was ready to buy this game, this week, too. The first one was my favorite Dreamcast game, and I've been looking forward to this for quite a while.

The minor good news, is that petition has been organized to show those guys that they're being complete and utter idiots. The petition is here for anyone who is interested.

And to think, up until this, I was having an absolutely great day.
