Okay, so I already told you guys about the awesome gifts I got Boyfriend for Chrismuhanzakwannakah. Now it’s time to brag about what a wonderful Boyfriend I have!! Dun dun dunnnnnn here's the first gift:
GUYS, IT’S A FREAKING TABLET!!!! Until now, I’ve had to do all my drawings on my trackpad, with “Paintbrush,” the ugly sister of MS Paint. Now I’m gonna be using a fancypants tablet!!!! Please don’t think this means my drawings are going to get better. They’re not. But now I’m hoping that after I get the hang of it, it’ll be quicker/easier/more fun for me to draw.
The most frustrating part of getting this gift was that Boyfriend gave it to me right before I went to my parents’ house for a week. Obviously, the first thing I wanted to do was play with it. I even brought it home with the intention of getting some alone time and installing the equipment.
Unfortunately, my overwhelming Italian family made that impossible. I actually managed to fight for space in the living room so I could blog on the laptop with family members leaning over and going WHATCHA DOOOIN? But there was no way I had enough alone time to whip out the tablet. It was more like this:
|Created with the trackpad still. Shifty eyed Gia, keeping everyone away from her computer.|
But that’s not all! Boyfriend also gave me this little ol’ thing:
A PEARL NECKLACE! Not the filthy kind, perverts (look it up). And not plastic pearls, either. A REAL pearl necklace. Boyfriend always says pearls are classy….I think he’s trying to class me up! I feel like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. He’s so freaking sweet!
Last but not least… He also gave me this:
A polar bear!! Okay okay, maybe Boyfriend only got it for me because he believes polar bears cry when we use blowdryers and wanted me to “see exactly what you’re destroying when you blow dry my hair every morning,” but still. Awwwwww. He needs a name still. Suggestions welcome.
