I Just Want One...

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

...kick-ass pair of jeans! And I wanted them on the deep-discount racks at Kohl's, especially since my coupon was only 20% and I usually don't budge for less than 30%. Well, I got a pair, but they cost me a bit more than I planned. I intend to wear the hell out of them, even though there subtly patterned so people might notice I'm wearing the same jeans a lot. I am now officially hip, since I bought Kohl's new Rock & Republic brand. They have a kind of lacy pattern over a grayish-blue. They're not actually denim, but jeans-style and good and stretchy. They are also my first "skinny" jeans--doubly hip! I was sure I'd get size 14, since all my 16s (even the small ones) are loose now, but these are 16s and fit quite well. Good thing, since there was NOTHING in a 14.

So when will I be wearing these? Well, on Friday night in my date with Lloyd, of course! After a little prompting, he suggested we meet for coffee--but on a Friday night? Well, the coffee place we were going is only open till 7 and we were meeting at 6:30, so I suggested another place that does nice coffee but also wine and small plates, and he was agreeable. I really hope he has a sense of humor. I haven't really seen any hint of that yet, but hopefully it's easier in person.

I'm playing with (and on) my new 'puter and am actually enjoying it quite a bit, with my only complaint being non-windows-8 related. I haven't been able to stay online and I have no clue why since all the other devices are doing fine. John thinks I might need to have it closer to the router, which is in the house, but I can't see how I can do that by more than a few feet. We'll see if Jason's latest ministrations have been successful. I love the feel of it and it's nicer keyboard with back-lighting. Guess I've only known really cheap computers before, although the reviews I've read say this is a low-end one, at least for windows 8 with touch. Off to explore some more!

    I need some new jeans but will wait until I lose some weight first.

    I hope you like Lloyd.

    I am not sure how I feel about the new computer and windows 8. I will have to play around with it more.

    Oh, I have a Hewlett Packard (I think it's going on 3 yrs. old) and it is back-lit too. I love that! Never had it on a computer before. Now I wouldn't have one without it! Well, have fun playing with your new 'puter.

    I have to check out Kohls! Your jeans sound awesome. Glad you got 'em!
