Change of plans

I don't know how I'm feeling right now, aside from the state of disbelief I'm in over my computer purchase and LJ support.

Dad's had a change of heart about the financing promotion, and now wants to pay the full amount up-front using his debit card to save the £205 or so I would have otherwise paid in finance insurance over the ten months. This will make a huge dent in their savings account almost immediately, and I'm going to have to transfer about a thousand pounds straight away from my own account to soften the blow. Still, I'm glad I didn't go to him to talk about the finance promotion before Tuesday, else I would have been stuck with an older-generation TiBook.

While I wait for the computer to arrive, I keep finding tidbits related to it. Apple posted a 15-minute QuickTime stream featuring the main announcements of Tuesday's Jobs keynote, but that tells no-one anything more than they already knew. More worthy of note is Apple's own photo gallery of the event, featuring lots of fun pictures of new kit from the various vendors. And last but certainly not least, the new 15" AlBook has already been disassembled and photographed.

Thursday night I was promoted in LJ support. I took it in completely the wrong way and felt terrible for much of the next day. When I finally started to work with my new privileges I had help and second opinions along the way, and yet I still managed to screw up an approval and had to defend a separate approval decision. Still... bah.

I don't know what to do. There's nothing I really want to do any more.
