Put off by Bookoff

As I was packing my room to get ready to move to a new place tomorrow, I thought maybe I could sell some used novels away to lighten some load. So I brought five books, four of them paperbacks (some Tom Clancy's and Dan Brown's), and a hardcover Harry Porter, to a local bookstore called Bookoff. Bookoff is a chain in Japan where you can sell used books and CDs for cash. Happily thinking that I might earn some cash, I was way off, way way off.

Guess how much all those books worth? A FREAKIN' 50 yen!!! That's 10 yen for each book.

I quickly gave them the best "disbelief" look I could make, said no, and went home.

macbook in action

Macbook gets its first outdoor trip. I am now typing this at a local cafe, while munching away my Saturday brunch after a night of WC soccer. Looks like Tokyo has pretty good wireless coverage. Now I just need to be careful not to spill my latte on my new toy.

Macbook baby....

Woohoo...just got my new macbook yesterday! Because this is my first mac, I was, and still, really excited.
So far it has been a joy to use. Setting it up was a breeze. Oh, I have to say that the guy that helped me out with my purchase at the Shibuya apple store was super helpful. Thumbs up apple.
Finally, to those who have been wanting to switch over to mac, or who would like to have two computer systems, I strongly recommend these new intel based macs.

Work is too busy lately so I am just going to post some old pics from my good old days in the States. Here is downtown Los Angeles. Posted by Picasa
