DVDs at Compusa

Last week when (e:matthew) and I bought a DVD burner at compusa we found a hundred pack of DVD-R+s for $4.99. Because I had never bought DVDs before I thought maybe that was a normal price. We should have bought 5 packs, like the guy in front of us. Today when I looked on the compusa site , I saw the same DVDs for $69.99. This leads me to believe that the sale price was supposed to be $49.99 not $4.99.

Party Evening

(e:lilho)'s party was nice, we eventually moved most of the party to (e:keith)'s party which was one of the best ever held on elmwood [inlink]keith,42[/inlink]. There were so many skyclad people. They cut down the fence dividing two back yards and made one massive party area complete with a swimming pool. I am guessing there were like 150 people dancing to nice big speakers and a turn table.

I didn't take any picture but (e:tina) did so maybe you will get to see some of it after all.

(e:jesse) built an entire outfit out of porn magazines pics that we cut out at (e:lilho)'s party. There were so many (e:peeps) out for the night. I also got to see lauren from UB which was nice. At some point (e:matthew) had to go home to get something and when he came back we lost track of the keys. Hours went by. Everyone blamed everyone. Did matthew drop them? Did I lose them? Did terry lose them? Did we give them to TK or Lilho or alison? Eventually we decided it had to be (e:lilho) because she was the only one with pockets and/or a purse. We asked (e:lilho) a couple times? Terry even tried to get them out of her purse and she insisted they wern't there. She left in a huff, I think because of some boy drama. At that point it was about 5:30 and the rest of us had no ride home.

Jesse and terry went with lilho because terry forgot street clothes and could not walk home like that. Poor mike was supposed to take our car to work at 8:30. So mike, matthew, and I walked home. Spent an hour looking for spare keys and then sent mike back to the car. Unfortunately, he couldn't find it as matthew was the one who parked it. AT that point it was like 6:30 and (e:matthew) and I had to walk back from Linwood and West Ferry to Elmwood and Bidwell to help (e:mike) find the car and get it started with our ghetto key copy that barely works.

Needless to say we didn't get home until the sun rose, poor mike having to work in like an hour and then stupid fucking bitch (e:lilho) calls us today to say she is sorry she was such a bitch last night and the keys were in fact in her purse. At leats she admits it.

I am so mad at her that if she was here I would punch her in the face if she were here.

Two Parties in One Night

So the summer ends with two parties in one night. The first party is (e:lilho)'s house warming. It sounds like it will be nice. I still haven't seen her apartment! Then afterwards we are heading over to (e:keith)'s for the anything but clothes party. It should be very entertaining. I am wearing parts from a firewire drive.

jesse is back

(e:flacidness) and I went to pick (e:jesse) up from the airport on his way back from China. He is staying with us for the week. On the way to get (e:terry) from work we stopped at Anderson's on Union. I hadn't been there in a while but it's still the same. Did anyone ever notice the "anderson's girl" is a ripoff on wendy from wendy's only with blond hair?

All my phones are gone

Every one of the six phones I ordered got refunded. Now I am back to not having a new phone, argh. I am not sure if the scam is with the sellers or with amazon. I ordered from every single phone on the first page for the phone I want on amazon. It makes me questiion the whole process. I mean amazon look is great because their is a whole page of cheap prices. But none of them are legit! One guy even wrote to me after amazon cancelled the order to say that he could still sell it to me if I sent a moneygram to romania. Ya, right.

At least I got the money back. I guess it pays to shop with an amazon visa on amazon. I still want a phone though. It feels really bad to go from having 6 mega cool phones to zero. I ordered one more, the next price up, just to see but I fear it will get cancelled too. Maybe I need to travel to finland.

I am a gambler

I just gambled a lot of freakin money on a scheme I had. i hope it works or I am never gambling again.

I just spent over $1000 on imported cell phones so that I could resell them. Needless to say I have plenty of those Nokia 9500 and Nokia 7710s now. I did this once before with bluetooth keyboards when they first came out. I bought about 8 of them and then resold them to pay for mine. If this woprks out I am going to become a cell phone importer. Do you think I need to declare this? Maybe I should ask (e:terry)

I picked the phone

Last nigth before I wen tto bed I thought I ended up ordering the Nokia 7710 which you can see in my last journal. It turns out I forgot to click confirm and when I got up this morning it was a good $300 more expensive. I was really sad but it turned out to be okay. I went with Alison's advice and I ended up finding the Nokia 9500 so as to not have to deal with the stick. Although secretly, I want that phone too and plan on selling shit on ebay till I can have both. The best part is that both run the Symbiam OS which supports flash, svg, and javascript. Here is more info about mobile SVG

I am so exicted to fianlly have a phone that is really of european quality and not my stupid sidekick piece of crap. At least I think I will be.

New Cell Phone Time

The time is ticking between now and the end of my cell phone contract and I still can't decide on a replacement for the sidekick. The sidekick was a nice phone but it is history now. I had it for two years and I am ready for something else. I was hoping something else with a stylus like the treo 650 but when I went to go test it out at the store, I couldn't type on because my fingers were to big for the stupid litlle keys. I hated it.

Seeing as I am determined to have a phone with a nice web browser, instant messenging, bluetooth, GPRS (with edge capabilty) a camera, and a non windows OS, I am down to two choices both from nokia. I also like nokia because they are real up front about development on the phone unlinke stupid danger which thwarted my every move.

image

The nokia 7710 is so cute. It is a totaly touchscreen stylus driven operating system. The problem is that it has no keyboard. It does have an onscreen keyboard and can do handwriting recognition. That could work out for me. The camera is 1.3mp which is awesome and it can record video. It also comes complete with flash player 6 and a 640 x 300 screen. Unfortunately, it does not have wifi.

image

Which leads me to the Nokia 9500 Communicator.

This baby has bluetooth, 802.11b wifi, and a keyboard. The camera is only 640 x 480px. It does do video and it runs an older operating system symbian 80 which is actually probably better because it means there is more stuff developed for it. The phone is heavier and seeing as I am not using the phone part I find that whole part unnecessary. I really like the idea of having 802.11b because there are so many times I am on the go and there are 802.11b networks. It would almost make having edge not very important, although having edge might make the 802.11b very unimportant. At least the wifi is free!

image

What the hell am I gonna do. I have like 20 days to decide on a new phone and maybe even a new carrier although I don't know how anyone could turn down t-mobiles $29.00 all you can eat internet plan even if it is slower than cingulare's edge plan.
