Hey Posse, yes, a couple of months ago I bought a new computer. So now, of course, I have the New Computer Blues. My last one is ten years old and slowing down a lot. Seriously, the spinning wheel of boredom was driving me a little batshit crazy. Off to Apple, saw the genius. Asked for similar or same, preferably green. He has this very helpful advice. “Grab a terabyte of external hard drive. ” OK, so I did that, cool. It all sits around for a couple months because I’m tech-phobic and Jin & I are stupidly busy. No problem. Finally have time to open the box.
New Computer Blues
Apple are ASSHOLES. Sure, it’s super slim, weightless, green and gorgeous but there are no USB ports, no sound jack, it has like 265GB and I HATE IT! FFS. The old computer has a terabyte, multiple USB ports, a sound jack for my lovely speakers and except for its slowness was absolutely perfect. All the cords were neat and together. NOW it’s a bloody shermozzle of extra bits and pieces hanging out the back, which defeats the slim line serenity of the unit. Grrrr, Grrrr and all the GRRRRS!
So, until I can finish getting the stuff off the old computer onto an external hard drive I’m using the old one. Mildly amusingly, since its replacement arrived the bloody thing has been quicker than it’s been for well over a year.
Also, I finally bought a new printer with scanner etc. It has been a dream. My old one was 15 years old at least. This new beauty is B&W and goes like the blazes. Only moderately annoying thing is it doesn’t print two sides. Oh well, can’t have everything. The speed though! It does 20 pages in the time the old one did one. So good.
Well, it wouldn’t be Perfume Posse if we didn’t talk even a little fragrance.
You may notice the picture is taken in my new IKEA Billy Bookcase set Jin is building for more storage for perfumes. Yes, this office was getting to look like a perfumed minefield and there was hardly a surface bare of boxes and bottles. It has already taken nearly four days of arranging and rearranging. We can’t put the top extensions and doors on until we have the situated for life.
Might have had a little self birthday splurge. SHHH!
The wrapping is always deliciously luxurious.
Yes it is! The new reimagined Captain Kurk DIOR re-releases of his original three DIOR Privé perfumes. I have large bottles of the slightly later versions of Bois d’Argent and Eau Noire, which hardly hold a candle to these beauties. I also have an 8ml sample of the Cologne Blanche. Now this beautiful box, with 40ml bottles of scent are mine.
There will be individual reviews and comparisons. All in good time. Just a little swamped here. Cinnamon wrote about the NOT Captain Kurk version of Eau Noire recently.
Have you tried the reimagined DIORs yet?
