:| I made that emoticon

That's basically my expression at the moment. See I'm about to go on vacation and thought it would be good to arrive early and best whatever crowds would bee in the airport. Only to realize that i managed to get there 6 hours early, and that i can't check in buy have to wait until the 2 hour mark before i can even get my boarding pass printed.

I honestly thought about bringing my nexus 7 tablet but decided against it, because my phone can already do the stuff that the tablet can do and didn't make sense to bring it.

I know I'm going to need a nap when i get to my destination! I will be one sleepy man when i get there.  And its exactly like my coworker said: I'd be too excited to sleep and presto, its happening just looker he said it would...

Testing the microphone

Okay this is me testing the microphone on the nexus 7 ha ha ha wow that's pretty cool.

So I'm finding that I can't really do dictate between sentences but for the most part I think it'll work just fine. Makes writing down mental note the heck of a lot easier um so I'd just testing this out to see if it actually works and it seems to be working really well.

The only problem I'm finding is that it cant tell where a sentence starts and where sentence ends. So I still have to put in punctuation now to make it easier to read and thats that's okay I'm willing to live with that.

So the next time when I have an actual mental note I'll actually be able to put it down from my brain directly on to the post rather than typing through fingers.

Nexus 7 and Goodbye PCs.

Like the title says, I got myself a Nexus 7 and am ditching the PC world. I have a PS3 now and can play awesome games on that and for the most part my PC gets used for looking at websites, Youtube and reading stuff online. I havent watched any movies that I had stored on my laptop and I figured rather than upgrading to a new PC with all the bells and whistles and dropping some serious money, I figured I would get a tablet.

I looked at this one and thought it would be a good substitute and would go with that one. I was determined to get it, but then saw the Nexus 7 sitting right next to it in the store. It was only 60$ more, with double the memory and the next step in the processor.

How could I refuse? I asked the folks at Futureshop if they had one, but was denied, "You cant find these in Calgary. They're sold out everywhere..." I was determined and there was another Futureshop on the way home and thought Why Not?

I got there and then asked, one went into the back room to see and the other guy chatted me up about the rumours about Apple's 7 inch marvel, which I scoffed at, and then from the back, a man came back with a box: It was a Nexus 7! I just about flipped my lid, we walked to the cash register, and he sighed, saying that he was going to buy that one after work! I smiled inside, and then a SMOKIN' hot girl came up to me and showed me her Nexus 7 saying that she loved hers. My grin couldnt be any bigger as I walked out the store, knowing I swiped the tablet of awesomeness right from their hands and will put it to good use.

Since this is my last post on a PC I figured that it would be cool to do a little send off for PCs, but I cant think of anything right now. Oh wait! Thanks for the games, word processors, and all that other stuff you do. Im gone to tablets and will never look back.

Day off

I love having weekends. I take all the chores and do them on the first day so that the second day is really nothing but relaxing all day long, and so far that plan seems to work every time. Except when i forget to do laundry, and then its something to do on the 2nd day.

On the lookout

I'm on the lookout for a new PC. preferably a desktop so that it doesn't shut down randomly. I'm going to try and breathe some life into my dying laptop by using canned air and see how much life i can get from it before i bite the bullet. But now I'm thinking that since i have a PS3 again and the only real thing i user my PC for is YouTube I'm thinking i might just get a really nice tablet

So I'm on break at work. Its pretty boring here; there's no soda machine, and no sink, its quite sad. I get s whole 15 minutes to spend to myself in silence, unless someone walls through the door.  Thought i would make a post and pass the time.

Maybe I'll see if i can escape early and go back to my studio apartment of solitude.  Although my computer has been acting more and more on the Fritz lately: shutting off when listening to music and typing out a story....might have to replace it sooner than i thought.

I have new Stories!

Remember back a while ago I made a post about how I was writing new stories and stuff? Well I have a link to a profile I made and some of my new stories Ive been working on right here

Yes, the stories about My Little Pony: Friendship is magic. I really like writing about the different scenarios that can occur in that world; since its all new I can create whatever I want and with a little bit of tweaking it can work. Plus how often can I write an awesome story about near-godly ponies taking over kingdoms by force? Or about the despair of defeat and the ultimate choice to surrender?

Like I said, I love LOVE receiving feedback, and you have to sign up on the site to leave a reply or you can just submit a comment here on Blogger. I thought Id update you guys on what Im doing in my free time! And let me tell you I have LOADS of that hanging around.
