So, anyone hear any news today?
iThink there was a huge announcement about an iPad of some sort…

You know, the iPad didn’t really rock my world. Why? Because it lacks a few things that are deal breakers for me- a webcam, USB connectivity and ability to play Flash websites. For now I will be passing on essentially a really big ass iPhone that costs over $500.
But I digress.
This post is about how I LOVE pink. It’s a color I look good in (looks at hot pink t-shirt), and it’s a color that’s girly and happy. However, I despise baby pink. You know the shade of pink I am talking about…baby shower pink. The “OH EM GEE it’s a girl!” pink.
Naturally, when I started thinking about how I
need want a laptop, I thought it’d be fabulous to have a hot pink laptop.
Which is apparently a major pain in the ass to find. Dell has a pink laptop and it’s ”promise pink” or the color of the breast cancer awareness ribbon, and I think it’s great. Not hot pink, but I can live with the color and it’s for a good cause. I am at Best Buy on Sunday, and I see it- a Inspiron 1440 Dell Promise Pink laptop for only $479. I have it in my hands, I walk around the store with it, and you wanna know what ended up happening?
Come on, guess.
I put it back on the shelf, left with my toner and immediately regretted my decision. We went to a few other stores, and I couldn’t get the laptop out of my head. Why didn’t I buy it you might ask?
Because I am freakin’ nuts. I would have gotten 18 months no interest on the purchase- so, ohhhh about $36 a month. Not gonna break the bank. But in my psycho mind, I convinced myself if I bought the laptop I’d regret it once I ended up homeless and had no access to Wi-Fi or electricity for that matter.
Clearly I have more issues than a daily newspaper. I know. It’s not news.
When I finally did decide to take the plunge, I called every damn Best Buy in the San Antonio area and none of the stores had it. NONE.
Now my only option is to pay $579 for the slightly beefed up version or settle for this heinous blue one. I know i could buy a laptop skin, but I am still hell bent on a pink laptop.
Then I found this one:
It’s $450 at Best Buy, so it’s not by any means affordable/cheap since it is a netbook.
But it is a hot pink netbook.
I really need to get my priorities straight.
Have I bought a laptop yet? No. I am nervous about ending up homeless because I can’t afford $36 monthly payments. I eventually will buy one, but I am going to hold out for something I really, really want.
But here are some other hot pink goodies I found lately:
Beautiful ring at Flowery Deer on Etsy.
A handbag that has hot pink in it by the uber fab Kate Spade. I want this bag. I would consider giving a kidney for it. Half a kidney. I WANT!
Business card holder (that I bought and love!) from OC Styles.
Hot pink corset from Lane Bryant.
Lovely heels from DSW.
Hot pink chair from Target. I would love to buy 2 of these for my future nursery.
Sony camera from Wal-Mart.
As you can see, there are a ton of hot pink items out there, and I want about 75% of them. What color are you obsessed with lately? Is there a color you can’t stand?
