Neck and shoulder ache

So both Anne and I have developed this neck and shoulder ache. We think that it is due to our mattress. Yesterday, we saw Dunlopillo having a 50% sale and we went to the shop. The promoter, a nice gentleman, thinks that it is the pillow and not the mattress. Bad mattress gives you back ache (near the love handle) and not neck/shoulder. We listened and bought two latex pillow from him - not even Dunlopillo brand.. I'm very happy because instead of spending thousands on the mattress, we spend a couple of hundred on 2 pillows. After trying it for a day, it seems to work! Is it physchological? I don't know... hmmmmmmmmm.. We'll have to monitor more...

3G iPhone

3G iPhone is out! I want one.. but I can't afford one. I blew my savings on a PC and on a Diamond filter... BOO HOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
I need a second job!

Core 2 Quad

Early July sees me treating myself to a great birthday present - a brand new spanking PC - with Core 2 Quad Q9450, 2GB RAM, XFX GeForce 9800 GTX (Extreme Edition), Centurion casing, AcBel PSU .. all in all, a hell of a beast! Crysis runs at High setting smoothly on my beautiful 24" Dell monitor. I am a happy camper..

Too bad I don't have much time to play... Boooooooooooooo..

So normally I upgrade for a reason. This time though, it is purely impulsive. There is no need for one. The only game I really want to play is GTA4 but it's not out for the PC yet .. perhaps next year. So why the sudden kiasu-ness? I have no idea.

Having said that, this PC would open a whole new world of gaming again that I have missed because my older PC couldn't support it. YAY!

Economy is bad?

Have you noticed that it is very difficult to get home improvement work done these days? My roofing (pergola, to be exact) had some problem ...
