Decide at the beginning of day job busy season that I am going to spend my bonus on a fancy display tablet this year (not a Cintiq because I don't get that much bonus, but an Ugee was totally in range)
Get the bonus. Order the thing.
Thing arrives yesterday, which happened to be my birthday. Hells yes.
...except I couldn't do shit with it at work and would have to wait until I got it home.
okay, fine. Get thing home. Unbox thing. Thing includes a screen protector that comes in a big envelope with lots of primo Engrish on it. Laugh.
Great, let's hook the thing up and... shit, the pens are rechargeable. Which means they have to charge before I can use them.
Put a pen on the charger. go to bed.
Wake up at butt o'clock in the morning ready to hook thing up and start drawing some shit on it.
Thing has both DVI and VGA ports on it, which is great.
...except it only comes with a VGA cable and my video card only has HDMI and DVI ports.
And I have no adapters.
Briefly consider running to Wal-Mart at butt-thirty in the morning for cable or adapter.
Decide nothing is worth running to a smallish-town-Texas Wal-Mart at butt-thirty in the morning for, not even the precious cable to make my tablet go. Besides, by the time I get back and get it hooked up, I'd have to start getting ready for work.
Fart around on intarwebs until time to go to work
Go to bank
Go to Office Max
Go to work
Hope to God I can get out of here at a reasonable hour tonight so I can FINALLY ENJOY MY DAMN PRESENT
