Adrasteius: Really?  Really.

(no subject)

Umm, so I broke my cel phone for reals, therefore the only way to reach me at the moment is at my home phone. If you don't know it, then leave a message and I will tell it to you.

I've decided to buy a new computer, but because I am completely retarded, I'd like some help. I want something that plays WoW admirably. I don't mean bleeding-edge so amazing that my eyes melt while staring at the screen, I just mean well enough that it plays smooth and looks decent.
Everything else is basic and I imagine comes with all comptars these days (I know nothing about new computers since Leliel is over four years old)--word processing, music playing, so on and so forth. And I want a PC.

The reason why I ultimately decided to buy a new one, by the way, is that besides Leliel's monitor being broken (and the temp monitor I'm using being nigh unbearable when playing WoW), it also has some severe sound and other issues. In order to fix it up perfectly, I'd end up spending about as much as I would on a new rig.

So, ANY SUGGESTIONS?

I went and bought a new phone today, loaded with a bunch of crap I don't really need, but what can you do. I feel bad needing all this new stuff all at once, but everything I have is old and breaking down and I'm just a little tired of it :|

Still, there's nothing like reading The Glass Castle to bring the plenty of your life into perspective. I recommend it; one reviewer on amazon deemed the prose 'perfunctory' but I prefer the word 'restrained'--it's unadorned, but I think that's necessary, because the author (who is also the narrator as it is her memoir) refuses to pass judgment on her mother and father, both of whom essentially neglected and abused their four children--not because they were malicious, but because they were both supremely self-absorbed.
