We headed back to Best Buy and I took the 15" monitor to the returns desk and explained to the clerk the weird behavior I was getting. He went over and talked to the tech about it for a few minutes. I guess the tech said it was toast because the clerk came back and said I was getting a new one to replace it, AND, like I had hoped they would, they replaced it with a 17" monitor. Woohoo! (It doesn't take much to thrill me, eh?) I took the new monitor to the car and went back into the store to look around and mostly oddly I didn't find anything that I wanted to get. From there we went half a block over to Jack-In-The-Box where I got a jumbo jack, fries and a coke.
Headed back to Barstow after that, got home and put everything inside. Went outside to dig holes for the plants and then put them in. I had to rub my hands on the herbs since I love the combined smell of rosemary, thyme and sage. Mmmmm. Went back inside to unhook the 14" monitor I was using and reverently put in the new one. Oh. My. The 2 inch difference was quite striking. Whoever said size doesn't matter was soooooo very lying. *G* The first thing I did was fire up Quake2 and played the Nexus3 map against some gladiator bots. *geek smile*
Had chicken enchiladas, rice and refried beans for dinner. Though I didn't eat too much, I've been burping it all night. Excuse me..... *belches*
