    Ok, so as the title of the thread indicates, today is the greatest day of my entire life. In the past 9 hours I have been hired at Best Buy (cheap hardware, woo hoo!), become a Demi-God, AND received my new DP GHz tower and 20" Cinema Display (it's way better than I ever thought possible). The kicker is that my iPod arrived with the computer!!!!! :D:D:D

    Ok, so if you can't tell I'm excited enough to dance around my house, which I promptly did upon successful boot. ;) This thing is WICKED fast, people. I always thought X was plenty fast enough on my 450 Cube, but this thing is a monster. Well I'll stop bragging now. Just wanted to share this day with you guys. Thanks for listening! :)

    Congrats!

    I know we're not supposed to be materialistic and all of that, but the rush from getting cool new stuff is great.

    And you got it in time for the weekend.

    Ra! :D

    See, I thought it was the day you slept in, missed church, and found a penny on the floor.

    who isn't suppossed to be materialistic?

    I love getting cool new stuff, and love to plan on getting more. I dont want a lot of stuff, but I want those expensive cool toy...uh, tools.

    Like the 20" display....I've been trying to figure how I can "afford" one so that I can have dual monitors....

    I got laid last night, so I'm having a good day too. But I'd trade that for a new iPod any day...

    I read your post, and the thing I kept thinking was:

    Seriously, there are more important things in life... :rolleyes:

    And somehow you tore yourself away from all the "more important things" to piss on this guy's day.

    If you can't say anything nice... :rolleyes:

    Yeah, so I'm not quite sure how my sexual experience came into this, but I'll try to be classier than yzedf and just not comment on that anymore. Thanks for the support, Rower. :)

    The new iPods are really incredible. They're so much sleeker and cleaner than the pics on Apple's site. I was not a fan of the renders on Think Secret or LoopRumors, and I really didn't think the Apple pics were that great either. It's just so elegant in person. I honestly think it's an improvement over the previous models. It really is amazing. The new solitare game is fun, too. ;)

    Ok, so I said I wasn't going to comment on yzdef's post, but my girlfriend wishes to make a comment. Here she is (in italics).

    **** you. It's none of your damn business how much Will gets laid but let me assure you that he does with some regularity. *******.

    Sorry about that. I wouldn't usually let someone else post on my account, but she doesn't really mind that I spend a good bit of time here so I figured I'd do her this one favor. She's usually a sweet girl, but she turns into a very bitter woman when she's angry (kind of like a wet lemur or something). :)

    Sort of ugly to watch, but somehow quite captivating ...

    But new hardware and a job is definitely something to get excited about.

    That's a new one, I could imagine myself as a cornered badger when I'm pissed, but not a wet lemur.

    Ha. Ok, so that wasn't actually my girlfriend. She did comment on the post, but I wouldn't let jer close enough to my new machine to actually post. Sorry for the Springer style drama, too. Still, it was funny. ;)

    I have what I refer to as the "area of hysteria" where if anyone (including my entire family, friends and girlfriends) come close to the 17in PB, I start sweating and act a little posessive.

    Letting people type on it is completely out of the question so I can understand why you didn't let your girlfriend type that;)
    Oh, and touching the screen is grounds for fighting!
