Pirate, Patchy

Me Wantee!

Yes, once again, it is time for another of my pathetic pleadings for stuff. This time, however, I want stuff that I will actually use more than once.

First up:
Permanent LiveJournal Account
US$150
Sale starts this week. Information can be found on the frontpage of LiveJournal. Oh, goodness, I want that sooooo much. Just the thought of being able to customise my journal, and not have to worry about recurring payments makes my knees weak.

Second:
Canon PowerShot (Pro1 model) 8.0 Megapixel Digital Camera
I cannot remember off the toppa my head how much it costs, but it is relatively cheap for such a good camera.
Correction and apology
My Dad just recently got one, intending it for my sister, because she's taking an advanced photography course when school starts again, but she didn't like the way it felt in her hand. So, he's got a kickass new camera, and I want it. Hey, I see neat stuff everyday that I can't record, because El Cheapo, the Twenty-Dollar DigiCam refuses to work anymore. Oh well.

Third:
Welder's Goggles
US$20
I want just goggles with some good Shade-5 lenses in 'em, not the full hood/mask thing you normally see. They would be my new sunglasses.

Finally:
A Good, Cheap, Reliable webhost.
Priceless
I know I'm asking for all three points in the Triangle of Quality, but I still want it, so I can really get RetsnimdeCorp on-line. I have been looking around, and found a couple of cheap and reliable hosts, but they aren't good. I've found Good and Reliable hosts, but they ain't cheap. And finally, I've found good, cheap hosts, and they sure as hell ain't reliable. I just want the impossible, is that too much to ask?

There. My list of demands things that I want. The only thing on there that is time-sensitive is the Permanent Account, and that offer expires in a day or two. If anyone out there in internet-land is feeling extremely generous right now, please consider my list, okay?

Rain

I love the rain. Just a few minutes ago, there was a heavy rainshower, and I spent fifteen minutes just sitting in it. It was beautiful. Also, it was something I hadn't done in a while. I'm doing a lot of stuff I haven't done in a while, lately, and I'm happy I'm getting the opportunities to do so.

Like just sitting and relaxing. I haven't been able to do that ever since I got the forty-hour mandate from my parents. And today, out in the boonies, with a dialup connection to keep me from being distracted by the 'net, I got to just sit, and relax.

And let me tell you, it truly, truly kicks ass to not have anything urgent to do, or chores to finish, or any responsibilities beyond brushing the cats. It is refreshing, as well, to go outside and pick mulberries, not caring about stained fingertips.

And, I'm finally able to just sit and read, without worrying about customers complaining about it. Today I read a collection of sci-fi stories that were actually retooled classic fairy tails. It reminded me of being a little kid again, worying over whether or not the clever young Hero can defeat the wicked Villain.

Heck, I'm just rambling at this point. I don't really worry about it, because I have plenty of time, and nothing urgent that needs doing. I just wanna write, and that's what I'm gonna do. But later. I'm hungry now. I think I'll make some Chicken Alfredo for dinner.

Cheers!
