I haven’t blogged in forever, and I don’t even know why. Today is June 1. My 21st birthday is on Sunday, June 6. My parents seem to be varying between wanting to get me a car for my birthday and wanting to give me a card and a hug. When my dad asked what I wanted, I told him that I want a pink ipod mini. Pink was an important feature. Not many electronics come in pink, and when they do, that’s the color I want it in. For whatever reason, pink seems to be hard to come by. My dad mentioned that maybe they should be getting me something like nice jewelry or something for my 21st birthday. So I made a list of “big ticket” items that I would like;
Mini Cooper, electric blue
AMD Athlon 64 FX-53 and motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 3200 and motherboard
I told my dad the list and he said that he was inclinded to get me the less expensive processor and motherboard, and I also wanted a new case that I saw at fry’s to go with them. So my dad and I went to Fry’s and I pointed out the processor and the motherboard that I wanted to go with it, and the case. For good measure, I also pointed out a 250gb hard drive which was only $199. You know, in case he wanted to get something extra. Anyway, we got back to my parents’ house, and my uncle Eric came over. My dad told me to convince him that what I wanted was a good idea. I told Eric that I wanted a new cpu and motherboard. He said that “it’s not time yet.” and the 64 bits are too expensive now, and I should wait 3 months. Now that makes sense except that in 3 months it won’t be my 21st birthday. The chips are a little more expensive now, but that is okay with me seeing as it is my birthday and someone else would be buying it for me. Last year my parents gave me an open DVD for my birthday. I don’t think that was very nice.
I am currently running an AMD Athlon 1.4, and that was before they started the new naming convention so I think that’s actual clock speed, but it was almost 3 years ago. I even started looking up neat addons that I would like to have later on.
And I’d really like to know what to ask my grandparents for. If I don’t tell them what I want I sometimes get strange things.
