Let's Spend My Money
Well, apparently since I worked all of that overtime last week I figured I could buy something for my troubles. What else do you save up for right? I decided to take the plunge and buy a new printer. I think I may have mentioned this before but I will mention it again. Printers and I do not get along very well; especially those ink jet fuckers. When I started using computers way back in the days, I used a dot matrix printer with my trusty Commodore 64. That is probably the longest I’ve ever owned a printer. When I finally retired the C64 and moved to the Tandy, I got a new dot matrix printer to go along with that. Sure laser printers were starting to show up around those days but who had money for something like that, hell they cost more than the fucking computer which back then were close to $2,000. So I stuck with my shitty little dot matrix… until. The glory of ink jet printers started around that time, or at least became affordable. My first ink jet printer was a Canon. It was also only had black ink, there was no color abilities for this printer whatsoever unlike what you damn kids have these days. I think the ink cartridge lasted longer than the damn printer did. Actually I don’t remember what the problem was aside from a lot of leaking and the fact that color printers started coming onto the market. I had to have a color printer, so I got one. I don’t think that one lasted very long either for some reason. All I know is that I have on average had two printers for every computer I’ve owned so far. Let’s fast forward to today. I have an inkjet printer from HP that I got in a bundle with a digital camera and I also have an HP laserjet that I got from work for free and have bought a new cartridge for. I’ve already got a taker for the laser printer and as for the inkjet, that little fucker can sit by the curb.
As far as sites go, I haven’t even started thinking of a new design for my sites so the blog will probably be Plain Jane for a little while longer. I really want to spruce up the 3rd Bass site now too and I’m not sure which one is going to take precedence. Speaking of the 3rd Bass site I now have it mentioned on the number one Beastie Boy’s fan site at http://www.beastiemania.com under relevant links to 3rd Bass.
Tomorrow is back to work time for me and it is also the second week of the reset. I don’t really give a shit if I get to help with it anymore since the HBC portion is done. I didn’t like a few of the things that were happening there so I put my two cents in and had those changed up a little. My whole week will be involved with scanning out all of the shit not making it into the new sets so we can send it to other stores and making tags… lots of tags. The one good thing with making tags now is I can print an entire vendor’s file with the click of about three buttons, much easier than batching everything and then trying to print them. Speaking of my wonderful job… I better get my ass to bed.
