For the past few years, I've bought whatever Google wanted me to, pretty much. Particularly in terms of phones and tablets and chromebooks. This year, I plan to do the same. And I would have had they been ready on announce day. I bought the phone and I love it. But the tablet/chromebook they announced only came with an offer to waitlist.

Yesterday I got an email saying they were ready. I had done my research and put my choices in my cart. And I stopped. Do I really want to spend $1,300? I'd like a backup chromebook and I'd like another tablet that is not a Fire. But, I really don't need all the Google glitz and power. They hit out of the park last year with the Pixelbook. I'm nearly tempted to get a second one of those.

I did not hit buy. I went to Amazon and scored a small Asus chromebook for $200 which will work just fine. I'll get a Samsung Tab A if the price plummets or I decide I can't live without another tablet.

Sorry, Google. I love you, but, not this time.

I made a mistake in yesterday's journal entry. zyzyly had posted some fun writing prompts and I copied the list but attributed them to remlap. In other LJ friends news, I went to celluloid_jam's friendzy and started adding 'friends' only to discover that I had added them before and they never added me back. Like most journals these days, their journals are locked down so I couldn't read them before and can't read them now. Sigh. Oh well.

Jeopardy is having a two week teen tournament later this week. I hate all Jeopardy tournaments except the Tournament of Champions. So, I'll get getting back 22 minutes every day for two weeks. I can live with that.

A while back the Chrome browser started making it very easy to clear cookies individually, by domain name or all together. (Settings>Advanced>Content Settings>Cookies>See All Cookies And Site Data - here you can search for things like CapitalOne.Com or Mint or really anything that involves site id and then find more info or delete.

Lately, whenever I hit a site issue twice, I go out those cookies and so far 10 times out of 10 times the problem has been fixed. Today, Mint would not connect with Discover. No matter what I did. So I went in, killed all the Mint cookies and the Discover cookies and everybody was happily cooperating again.

Wow, I just saw a picture of Calgary's new library it's gorgeous and... it has a train!

Today is house cleaner day and hair cut day - these will happen at the same time. They house isn't too bad. It will be happier with a cleaning but the hair is a good two weeks past it's cut date. I also need to pop by the library to pick up a good and stop by that neat grocery market down the block from it. That might not all happen today. Grocery/library may get saved for tomorrow.
