As everyone knows that for the past few months I have been asking for three things lately: another bookcase, the chance to go to NY in May for BEA and a netbook. Well I think my lucky three’s have finally come true. I had put it out there and I am happy to say I think it worked. Perhaps I should go and pick up a lotto ticket.
I got my book case from CSN stores to You can see it here. Funny enough when I was at Walmart this past week, I was looking around and saw a bookcase similar to the ones I have in my living room now on sale. I should have seen that one coming. Isn’t it always the way though?
Then at the last local meet up we got to talking about BEA and NY and I figured before any further planning happened I better make sure I could go and I got the official okay. So I will be in NYC in May. Hope to meet some of my fave bloggers while I am there.
Then lastly, Thursday when I was at Walmart I saw a netbook on sale so after supper I managed to convince someone about getting one. So this is going to be basically a early birthday and xmas present we agreed on. Unfortunately when I went to Walmart that night they didn’t any have more left so I ran to Best Buy and managed to find out and thankfully they had some.
So this is my brand new toy.
Its an ASUS EeePC.
Its a cute and compact which will be travelling with me whenever I go away for a few days or while I am in NY in May.
I am still getting use to it and basically still playing around with it. It wasn’t online when I took the picture because I have to get a router as my internet connection at home is a cable modem so anytime I want to use it online I have to unplug the cable from desktop, then reboot modem to plug in netbook. So its a complicated situation so until I get a router I will only being using it when I go to the library or at our next meet up.
The background picture on the netbook is called Autumn and it came with windows XP. I thought it was a great fall picture to use and the picture was taken in my dining room where I was using the netbook at the time.

You must be doing ‘the Secret’ and all these wonderful things are coming to you:) You’ll really enjoy the laptop- sooo practical.
First Tina, now you… I’m feeling a bit jealous! Can’t wait to see your new toy at our next get-together! And I’m super glad to hear that you’re on for the BEA!
Congrats on all of your goodies!! The netbook is so cute! My grandmother just got one but she has hooked it up to her old monitor so she can see the bigger screen. It’s convenient to have the smaller unit but it’s nice for her to be able to also use a larger screen when she wants to. Enjoy!
Congratulations on all of your exciting news! I’ve seen pictures of some of those CSN Bookshelves around the blogosphere and they look wonderful- congrats! Your new netbook looks awesome- I want one myself sometime in the distant future! And NYC, WOW! Have fun!!!!
