Most days, I spend my time working and generating money to grow my investments. Today was one of those days that we cashed in some chips for enjoyment and spent. I didn’t plan on it but shortly after lunch, Aaron told me the custom shirts he designed at Brooks Brothers on January 13th were ready for pickup. We decided to leave work around 3:30 p.m. to go get them. We made our way over to the Country Club Plaza, stopped in the Barnes & Noble, where I bought a pound of coffee and a mug, and then went to the store so he could finalize his purchase and inspect the merchandise.
After that was done, we stopped by the Apple store at picked up a new 17″ MacBook Pro. I told you in the post about my technology setup that we were waiting for the product line refresh. Turns out, the wait was less than two weeks! For the same price as we would have paid 14 days ago, we got a system that is almost twice as fast.
After we left the Apple store, Aaron mentioned he wanted to swing by Nebraska Furniture Mart because he wanted to buy a Playstation 3 and a few new games. There still hasn’t been anything on the system that I wanted to play but I didn’t object so we headed over there and bought one along with an extra controller at three or four titles. I picked up “3D Dot Game Heroes” for myself, which is supposed to be a 3D 8-bit adventure game in the spirit of The Legend of Zelda. In the store, I was laughing because here we are with all this awesome technology and I had just chosen a game because of 8-bit nostalgia.
