Lucky for me when facing the choice of either jumping out my third floor window, or going to my friend Halo's to ask for one of her computers (she has a computer farm, they grow there like fungus) I chose the latter. So I went there, got a strange little aqua colored laptop, and took it home. It is quite a nice fella. No spellchecker though, which drives me nuts. But hey, I shouldn't complain nor do I want to.
So I will have to purchase a new computer soon, but in the meanwhile will make do. I also almost gave up on the puppetry class that starts on Thursday, but decided not to. I will find a way to pay for both this and a computer. I think my friends will try to help with some of the tuition, which makes me feel quite cared for.
Thursday morning though, before all hell broke lose, I went for a few arrangements and dropped by the bead store to buy a few Italian glass hearts for my mobiles. While there I was asking the shop owner about all sorts of things, when he suddenly said "you like ribbons do you??". Of course I nodded. He then continued to lure me to follow him up the cranky stairs and inside a dark closet. Just when I was sure he will draw out an ax, he shoves a huge box full of ribbons into my arms and says "make me an offer". I looked at it, and immediately thought - I will open a new supplies shop and I shall call it Ribbonzella so I made him an offer, and he raised it by 50NIS and now I am the owner of a new online ribbon shop.

You should really come and have a look, I wish I had a place to shop for such nice ribbons and such a great price. Seriously, I pay thrice as that at the local craft shops. The banner and avatar are ugly I know, but that is what I could do in such short notice. I am waiting for a new banner which should be ready any day now..
My call for help continues - if you ever wanted to buy something at my shop, this is the time. I need all the extra money I can get for the puppetry class I need to take. Did I say need? Good, because I do need it. Some go to a shrink when times are bad. I go to puppetry school.
