Turns out I'm not evil, I'm just twisted! Very niched.
How evil are you?
Now this printer is just your regular black-ink printer that'll do the perfect job for usual printing needs ie. resumes, sudoku sheets, stuff off the 'Net, and to cut costs instead of buying a new cartridge altogether it's much cheaper to get a refill and do-it-yourself. The only hazard is spilling ink all over the place, or worse, having ink spilling out from the cartridge after refilling it.
Anyways. I couldn't print anything these past few months because of my printer cartridges, even after getting a new one, and refilling that a couple of times, so I thought that it's time to upgrade. Enter the HP PSC1510!
Yow. This baby won over the Canon Pixma iP4200 because of three things: first, the Canon costs RM699 (with free pendrive thrown in, last 2 models available) compared to the HP that costs only RM379 (normal selling price RM399); second, the Canon can only print lovely colour prints and CD labels, while the HP can print lovely colour prints, and is also a scanner and copier; and third, the Canon uses 4 cartridges (black, magenta, cyan and yellow) while the HP uses only 2 cartridges (black and colour).
A main concern I had while getting this printer was that it may be too big to fit the table (it's about twice the width of the old printer), but after getting everything out of the box and setting up, hooray! It fits!
Now I'll just wait for the parents to wake up and see the thing and screech at me.
Grateful for getting a flower and thankful for the straightforward intent so no need to wonder so much what the flower means!
What is it? Monty Phyton's Spamalot - the soundtrack of their musical. A Monty Phyton Musical! Actually what really caught my attention was the grail picture - I love Monty Phyton and the Holy Grail - and so natural reaction for me was to pick it up and look it through. It's gonna be most likely that I'll enjoy this. Measures of self-control were overridden when it comes to stuff that you know are rare, or know prices won't change anytime soon no matter how long you wait, or worry that once it's gone, it's gone. Unlike the OST for Perhaps Love, which I can always wait until the price drops to something more appealing.
Listened to the musical on the way to (and back from) Klang I just fell in love with it. The same appreciative feeling that I got from The Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables I had with this, although instead of just being immersed totally to the music I had a better time listening to the lyrics. I mean:
I'll sing it in your face
While we both embrace
And then we change the key!
Now we're into E
That's awfully high for me
But everyone can see
We should have stayed in D
For this is our song that goes like this
...that goes on until...
I can't believe there's more
It's far too long I'm sure
That's the trouble with this song
It goes on and on and on
For this is our song that is too long
Or another song example!
Whatever happen to my part?
It was exciting at the start
Now we're half-way through Act Two
And I've had nothing yet to do
I've been off stage for far too long
It's been ages since I had a song
Gotta love Monty Phyton. If you ever thought that Terry Pratchett was hard to follow, or thought that Douglas Adams was wacky, try Monty Phyton. Lords.
Which brings us to todays title. Having short memory means I've gotta jot down 'small goals' before I forget them or deprioritize them. Small goals are stuff that I can slowly do bit by bit over any amount of time, not really needing a lot of saving up or heavy investment. So some things to jot down and more to add on when I think about them:
Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings, both Fellowship and Two Towers extended 4-DVD set. I already have The Return of the King and I want the originals for this.
Queer as Folk. Probably not very important, and definitely something I'll only get when I stay out on my own (very controversial after all). Would be nice if I could get the UK version. This one no need originals.
Sailormoon, Sailormoon R, Sailormoon Super S and Sailormoon Sailorstars. I have Sailormoon S already (best season to my opinion) as well as the movie collection, and I have all the episodes for Sailormoon and Sailorstars in Realplayer format so no rush here also.
Plays and Musicals to watch
Monty Phyton's Spamalot!
All Discworld plays! Especially Wyrd Sisters (love Granny Weatherwax!) and Maskerade!
All things Terry Pratchett. This include the entire Discworld series and their other spinoffs like The Science of Discworld etc. Oh must keep an eye on the Discworld maps collection.
Frank Herbert's Dune Messiah. I think that's the only missing book in my collection.
Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple series. The only thing that keeps me from actually making this a priority buy the fact that the books are small, but the price is big.
JK Rowling's Harry Potter: Philosopher's Stone and Chamber of Secrets. Started my collection backwards.
Magic: The Gathering: Ravnica series - Ravnica, Guildpact and Dissension.
Once I get my own place and have my own athenaeum I'm definitely looking to expand my range.
Gadgets and Gizmos
I guess next on my list is a digicam so I can be better camwhore. This one can consider a bit of a 'medium goal' actually.
Tetris DS for NDS.
New Super Mario Bros for NDS.
WACOM tablet and stylus? I guess this one is definitely out of reach plus the fact that it's more for professionals than for dabbling in doodling.
WTF I just made a wishlist! It's not a wishlist! Bah who am I fooling. >:P
