We were somewhat lazy early in the day yesterday then we decided to go out and have some drinks and dinner. Great idea! ;)


pumpkin ale

I had a pumpkin ale. So much pumpkin here and there and why not in ale? It was rather delicious. I’m finding I’m not too keen on beer as much as I could be but I do like the dark stuff and the slightly unusual. ;) I also went for an Apple Martini, which was pretty yummy too.


The Hawaiian Mahi Mahi was delicious and I capped it all off with two scoops of ice cream. Yum!


After dinner, we decided to head out to Best Buy. Another great idea! ;)

Have you heard of Chromecast? Basically it’s device that can play whatever media you “cast” from your computer, tablet or smartphone to your tv. It’s a bit like Apple TV, mostly stripped down and not connected to anything until something connects to it. Still, it’s nifty and I found one (just ONE) at Best Buy all by its lonesome by the Chromebooks. I just had to hold it in case we got anything else.


I always stop by the Chromebooks at Best Buy. I wonder a little at why they’re placed far from the laptops, closer to the iPads than anything. They’re in an odd place to be sure but I’m always drawn to them. A laptop wholly dependent on a browser-like OS? I can dig it, especially since the OS is Chrome. I’m a Google girl at heart (in spite of my iPhone), so I suppose that’s the allure. And one day, I kept telling myself, I’ll get a Chromebook.

Yesterday was the day. ;)

A review one day perhaps. For now, it’s a pretty groovy device. It does what I need it to do and right now I’m in the testing the battery phase.
