12/21/11 - Updating my Tech / New Family Member

I've got a $100 holiday bonus for the month so today I'll be going out to buy myself an early Christmas present.

I'm leaning very heavily towards a new laptop, one that would be able to run all my needed software without dumb outdated errors :P I'm hoping the new  virtual atmosphere of a new computer may also help inspire me to be more productive on these projects.

I do have a valid excuse for not being very productive in recent days... (see picture) meet Millie (short for Millicent, and named after Millie from the oncew popular Ozy and Millie web cartoons), another early Christmas present from my grandparents. She's quiet the handful! Since its too cold to walk her I'm having to house train her on those expensive blue pet pads and at night I have to keep her in a little baby play-pin and dagnabbit, she gets LOUD at these times!

Still, she's quiet a bundle of joy. My grandmother sugested I keep her for a few days and see if I can handle such an extra amount of responsibility... and while I'm on the fense about it, I cant help but adore Millie regardless of how messy and yappy she may be :3

I'm trying to work out ways that I can keep a watch on her while I work on my projects. I'm honestly a bit stumped... so if anypony here has any good advise about keeping new young puppies while still maintaining large personal projects, please post your suggestions here!

I'll try to keep y'all updated!


  1. Hiya MisterBull! It's been a while, and might I say Millie is pretty cute. If you want to tire her out, you might try a laser? My Dad uses one to keep his chihuahua puppies happy. Won't even have to leave your desk.

    I'll most likely be going through your updates and posting input here and there over the next few days. Glad to be back!

    I like the laser pointer idea... we used to use it on our cats over the years but I never thought about it working with dogs as well :P

    btw, your name "Dweem" is it of a certain Elder Scrolls origin?

    Eyup. I decided to start using it when I started going to ponychan awhile back xD
