I should watch our my stress.
I definitely felt dead emotionally inside and physically weak after a stressful day, I should be very happy this week as I’m traveling to somewhere. I should be happy, not them!
Cancelled the Birchbox Men Sub. Thanks for the samples and Near-Useless Shades and Shoelaces! The local Pharmacy, Target or Wally-World is Enough IMO for my grooming needs, Though i love that Exfoliating face scrub. But at $32 for the whole thing, I’d rather spend it on Coffee and that is exactly what i did.
I haven’t paid for Starbucks in a Month already. Occasionally, i will get their Frappuccinos because i don’t know how to DIY it. But the roast coffee, i could do better!
I’ve heard good stuff about the AeroPress. I know the taste of Folgers Coffee run through a less-than-maintained office drip coffee maker (again, i could do better!) and i have been researching on how to make better coffee. So $45 later (or 4 weeks for starbucks) i’ve got myself the AeroPress, a coffee bean grinder and i choice of beans TBD.
I’ll report back my experience soon.
So my cousin wants to watch Despicable Me on her iPad. I see that the genuine Universal Studios DVD they bought at a real retail store has a digital copy. Ok, let me punch in that activation code on the iTunes app and touching the redeem button on the iPad. Nope! It complained I have to go the the computer, insert the disc and open (ugh) iTunes on the dang slow computer to transfer the movie! (that’s why we had iPads and other mobile doohickies. Its faster than a computer! Cheaper too)
Boot up the PC. That is Like 4 mins already. Open iTunes, it wants an update. Now, 15 mins has passed. Still updating. And i fear it will take another 10-15 minutes of our time to transfer from disc to laptop, and from laptop to the iPad itself via sync cable.
What gives Universal and other movie studios?! My folks purchased the disc, they have a code, why don’t the movie studios allow direct downloads from the iTunes store instead of relying on a DVD?? Some computers don’t even have a disc drive anymore so SOL and you know where they may go. Yeah you do, those places to download without paying.
If the computer we have is fast enough, I would have made the digital copy myself using a program like handbrake with the help of an app that can read purchased discs (google it. If you find a search result for a program which has a fox for a logo, you are on the right track) and convert them to a format the iPad can play.
